I Buy All My Basics From Nordstrom—I'm Scooping Up These 41 From Its Big Sale



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.

You can never have too many white tank tops.

Love the silhouette of these staple denim shorts.

I can't believe these are $6 either.

An oversize button-down is a year-round essential.

You can never go wrong with a sleek, high-quality black tank.

Style with jeans, shorts, skirts, and dresses alike.

I always stock up on Natori bras when Nordstrom has a sale.

I've had my eye on this pretty sweater ever since it hit the site.

Strappy sandals you'll wear all summer.

A crisp white button-down is perenially chic.

It's not summer without a pair of espadrilles.

I own these, and they are absurdly soft and comfortable.
