More than ever, I have found myself shopping at Nordstrom before I hit up any of my other favorite retailers. I attribute this to the increasingly great selection of budget-friendly yet chic pieces offered on the site. While I will always love and aspire to wear the designer pieces on Nordys, over time, I have amassed a list of chic and affordable brands that I am inclined to shop first.

Within this list are brands like Madewell and Topshop which are a given, but there are a variety of lesser-known brands worth looking at when on Nordstrom, including Open Edit and Treasure & Bond. If you are interested in putting together an expensive-looking wardrobe full of elevated basics that are closer to the $100 range, I highly recommend you scroll on to check out my list of 10 chic and affordable brands at Nordstrom right now that are guaranteed to give you those exact results. You're welcome.

Treasure & Bond

I always look up Treasure & Bond when I'm looking for elevated basics that look effortless, particularly tops and sweaters.

Open Edit

A favorite among Who What Wear fashion editors, Nordstrom's in-house brand Open Edit offers trendy basics that, for the most part, come in at under $100.


When it comes to of-the-moment pieces at a budget-friendly price, Topshop is your best bet. I am a fan of everything from the tops to trousers to dresses.


Madewell is well-known for casual-cool staples like button-down shirts and jeans. Make sure not to overlook their tops, dresses, and shoes as well.


Finding affordable fashion that looks expensive isn't always easy but for this, I always turn to Mango. The minimalist pieces look rich without the price tag.

& Other Stories is another elevated brand to check out at Nordstrom. Every piece is effortless and chic so it's no surprise that it is a favorite among fashion editors.

Endless Rose

Endless Rose is perfect for when you're looking for affordable pieces that feel polished and put-together.

River Island

River Island offers trendy statement pieces that will keep you looking current and giving you a rich-girl vibe.

English Factory

If an expensive-looking wardrobe is your goal, English Factory pieces at Nordstrom is a must. The jackets, sweaters, and tops are top-notch.

Vero Moda

Vero Moda has a lovely selection that's trendy yet versatile and is typically under $100. Get ready for all the compliments when wearing one of the brand's pieces.
