For most of us, basics are the bread and butter of our wardrobes—dependable and versatile. Whether it's a white tee or a staple pair of straight-leg jeans, they ground our outfits, look effortlessly chic, and are as reliable as they come. But not all basics are created equal, and I have a handful of brands I gravitate toward when it comes to shopping for them, many of which can be found at Nordstrom. In fact, I'd say 90% of my wardrobe consists of staples from the trusty retailer, so now that Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale is taking place this week, I wanted to share the must-have pieces to get your hands on first.

Between May 25 and June 6, you can get up to 60% off everything from trend-forward tank tops to versatile jeans and sleek minimalist sandals during the big sale. Luckily, I've waded through hundreds of pages (so you don't have to) to bring you the essentials I highly recommend. Take a peek below to give your basics a fresh update this season.
