OUTFIT DETAILS2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Men’s Top Picks
Floral Short Sleeve Shirt, Nike T-Shirt, Nike Jacket, Nike Joggers
If you haven’t checked out your recent Nordstrom, you must. Everything is wrapped in yellow! So much yellow. Kimmie tells me a lot of her readers were asking about my picks out of the Men’s department from the Nordstrom Sale, so bearing that in mind, I decided I could try and do a little bit of what she does to help the husbands, boyfriends, brothers and Dads of Color & Chic readers so they look fly this fall. However, I will admit I felt like I was going to have a heart attack before walking into Nordstrom. I just don’t like shopping, which is why Kimmie handles it. But here goes my 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Men’s Top Picks.
Nike T-Shirt – This thing is swag. I feel like a World Cup player and I don’t even like soccer. The angular shape of the orange is very slimming and makes you stand out. Kimmie’s coworkers thought I lost weight – I, unfortunately, haven’t.
Nike Joggers – They feel great and are slimming. I’d definitely work out in these and feel comfortable doing deep squats in these. Definitely a great pant for fall and winter. This truly belongs on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Men’s Top Picks.
Nike Windbreaker – Saw this online and asked Kimmie to place it in my cart after my trip to Nordstrom. I think this is super stylish and if you zip it up more than 3/4 you’ll get the full effect. There’s a nice taper in the back so it doesn’t cut flat but arches and elongates you. Definitely a unique piece. I’m going for the pink but if it doesn’t work out, you’ll see me rocking the gray.
Patagonia Better Sweater – Stock up on these now to give as gifts. My favorite winter piece three years running and will most likely never change. The quality and warmth are superb.
Nike Shorts – These are the short versions of my joggers. Would like great with the tech fleece jacket as a set. More loungewear than activewear – I wouldn’t work out in these. You can do some serious BBQing or fall football watch partying.
Floral Shirt – When I put it on it looks like a dress shirt. I feel like I belong at a fancy cocktail party. Personally, I think this would look killer under a nice blazer. Very flattering for my fellow athletic brothers. However, I’m a little scared about it wrinkling (Kimmie, can you promise to always steam this?) and the collar might spread or sag over time. But definitely a statement piece. P.S. You MUST wear an undershirt, sweat will show, but I do sweat profusely. This bears repeating.
Athletic-Fit Chinos – Not too thick and more lightweight. These have the texture of nice slacks but are more fitted and feel like chinos. I could imagine myself living in these going to the office each day. Comes in five colors. I’m 5’10 and wearing size 33×32.
Denim Shirt – Kimmie picked this out for me. Haven’t tried it on yet since I ended up having a call mid try-on session but I enjoy the idea of this!
Ted Baker Suit – I’m a big Ted Baker fan and this suit looks like it could do you no wrong. The color stands out and definitely looks chic.
Bomber Jacket – Looks really nice and I like the shawl collar a lot. Definitely a piece you throw on and walk out the door knowing you look fly.
