I'm a Shopping Expert—These New Nordstrom Arrivals Are My First 2023 Purchases



New year, new me. Or at least that's what I tell myself as I spend the first few days of the year scrolling endlessly to figure out what my personality will be for 2023. Although I have my aesthetic nailed down (barely, if we're being honest!), I can't resist browsing the Nordstrom new arrivals at the start of each month for hours on end. 

Now that New Year's Eve has come and gone, all eyes are on what's "in" and "out" in 2023—aside from the viral social media lists everyone was posting on the last day of the year. While I'm a sucker for trends, elevated basics will always be my first love, and thankfully, the Nordstrom new-arrivals section is full of affordable finds with timeless, elegant picks. Plus, with a lower price tag comes the ability to try out new styles, trends, and pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe in 2023. It's a win-win scenario all around. 

Below, shop all of Nordstrom's can't-miss new arrivals to kick off 2023.
