As a shopping editor, I spend a good amount of time sourcing deals on the internet. I love the thrill of finding something I want at a discount, especially if it's a trending product or something I've long been coveting. One of my favorite retailers for scoping out under-the-radar markdowns on today's biggest brands is Nordstrom Rack.

If you love shopping for designer clothes, Nordstrom Rack offers a wide assortment of items at different price points, so you can find popular wardrobe essentials at a price that suits your budget. The retailer is home to hundreds of top brands and designers like Michael Kors, Gucci, Nike, Topshop, Ugg, and more. Best of all, Nordstrom Rack is constantly hosting sales, so you can save even more on already discounted products. Case in point: Nordstrom's Clear the Rack savings event.

Happening now through May 27, shoppers can take an extra 25 percent off on clearance items at the massive Clear the Rack sale. From deals on luxury handbags to savings on summer essentials like swimsuits and cute sandals, there's something for everyone to shop (and love!). To get you started, I've curated a list of the best deals from Nordstrom's Clear the Rack event. Keep reading to shop my picks.
