Back to School
Back to School
Back-to-school season looks a bit different this year, but whether your kids are returning to school in person or learning remotely, Nordstrom has everything you need to get them ready: the coolest clothes from top brands, sturdy shoes to withstand serious playground time, coats to stay cozy through every fall forecast and backpacks to carry books, homework and more. We even have face masks for kids to keep them protected when social distancing is difficult to maintain.
We've got budget-friendly picks to ensure you can check off your back-to-school list without breaking the bank. For elementary and middle school kids, you'll find clothing and footwear under $30. For teens, shop clothing under $50 and shoes under $100. And rest assured that the quality of our top brands—like Nike, Boden, Dr. Martens, Steve Madden, Jeffrey Campbell and Patagonia—will hold up beautifully, so you won't be buying replacements left and right.
Does your family do the time-honored tradition of a first-day-of-school photo? We'll help you create picture-perfect looks: cute back-to-school outfits for younger kids and trendy back-to-school clothes for older students—even those who are super particular about their apparel. Is your kid wondering, What should I wear on the first day of school? We can help! Nordstrom salespeople are up on all the trends and can provide some expert guidance. They'll quickly pull some looks that reflect your child's tastes—and respect your budget too.
As for our huge selection of back-to-school shoes, you'll find timeless Converse shoes that pair as easily with a first-day-of-kindergarten dress as they do with a first-day-of-high-school T-shirt and jeans. Nordstrom also carries lots of Vans shoes, from colorful designs with Velcro closures to classic skater slip-ons. You'll also find a great selection of kids' adidas and Nike shoes, just right for gym class or for everyday wear.
No back-to-school shopping list is complete without a cool backpack. Which backpack is best for school? In addition to delivering trendy style, it must be a good fit for your child's size and be durable enough to last the entire school year. For older students who tote around tons of books and gear, only a well-constructed backpack with strong, cushy straps will do. That's why we carry great-looking, hard-working bags from brands like JanSport, Fjällräven, Herschel Supply Co. and many more. And for younger kids just starting school, we have all the cutest backpacks—including some with unicorns!
Whether you do your back-to-school shopping online or in person, you can trust Nordstrom to make it easy and safe. We always offer free Standard Shipping and free returns, plus Contactless Curbside Pickup at selected stores.
Autumn leaves, cozy fall coats, sharp No. 2 pencils and rubber rain boots will be here before we know it. Here's wishing you and your family a wonderful back-to-school season.
Back to Campus
If you're returning to college or just starting your college career (congrats, froshie!), Nordstrom has all the clothing and footwear you need. Whether you're heading to campus or prepping to learn remotely, you'll find all the essentials for all-night study sessions—we personally love a fleece hoodie, cozy sweatpants and UGG slippers. For everyday outfits to wear to class, we've got your budget in mind with trend-right clothing under $50 and shoes from top brands under $100. And for internships and job interviews—virtual or in person—you'll find sharp professional clothes and shoes that will get the job done. We also offer fun dorm-room decor like bed comforters, throw pillows, area rugs, towel sets and wall art, so you can truly make your space your own.
Shop everything you need online and enjoy free Standard Shipping and free returns, or shop in person at your nearest store. A Nordstrom stylist can help you fulfill your back-to-campus checklist, put together looks just for you and offer free advice on fashion and beauty. Plus, enjoy Contactless Curbside Pickup at selected stores for the convenience of in-person pickup while prioritizing safety and ease.
Whatever your fall schedule looks like, you can be sure Nordstrom has everything covered so you can focus on enjoying the very best college has to offer.
