I'm a Fashion Editor Who Lives in Basic Tops—I'm Into These Styles at Nordstrom

I love a good basic. Although, who doesn’t, right? After all, it’s these trusty versatile staples that act as the true backbones of a wardrobe. In terms of specific basics, I often gravitate towards simple tops, in particular. Whether I’m wearing cool relaxed trousers and loafers or a pair of chic relaxed jeans and sneakers, it’s a basic tee or button-down shirt that pretty much always accompanies said looks. And yep, Nordstrom is often a great resource for me when I’m looking to add a new shirt to my offering.

On that note, I rounded up a few standout styles I found from Nordy if you too love a basic top and are looking to add a fresh style to your rotation this season. Below, you’ll check out a range of silhouettes separated by categories, including simple yet elevated blouses and perfect tanks for spring and summer. Keep scrolling for more.
