best brands at Nordstrom



Not to be biased or anything, but my fellow editors and I are basically Nordstrom power shoppers at this point. We've covered the site from top to bottom bringing you everything from the trendiest buys of the moment to the Nordstrom buys that shoppers always give five stars to and, of course, we never miss any of the retailer's blow-out sales. After all our combined online shopping efforts, I figured that my fellow editors are low-key experts on the matter, so I asked them to share the best Nordstrom brands they turn to time and time again. Spoiler—the labels they listed below are a goldmine for great finds.

So whether you're looking to stock up on some new staples or are simply curious to glean some shopping insights from bonafide experts, peruse the below list to get inspired for your next online shopping trip.

best brands at Nordstrom according to editors




From trendy basics to pretty compliment-worthy dresses to cool basics and easy loungewear, Reformation really has it all. I always end up adding at least one of their pieces to my Nordstrom cart when I'm perusing the site.


I tend to beeline to Topshop when I'm looking for that quick fashion fix. Whenever I'm looking to test-drive the seasons' hottest trends but hesitant to splurge on anything too trendy, their affordable staples always hit the spot.

"Nordstrom's selection of Ganni always makes me smile. From the frilly dresses to the chunky boots, I always find myself adding at least one Ganni piece to my cart before checking out, no matter what I was originally shopping for."


"Agolde jeans are life and Nordstrom's selection is so good. They have that perfect '90s fit that I love and are reasonably priced considering I've kept all my Agolde goodies for years."

"I always shop for Nike pieces at Nordstrom. It has such a good selection of clothing and sneakers with new arrivals stocked frequently. And it always includes Nike in its frequent sales."


"People love Natori bras for a reason—they're beautiful but also functional. And Nordstrom has a huge selection of them (all of which have tons of great reviews)."

"I always stock up on Madewell tees and jeans from Nordstrom. They're so comfortable and easy to wear. Moreover, they're almost always discounted when Nordstrom has a big sale."


"French brand Maje is one of my favorites for classic yet cool quality pieces that last a lifetime. I've picked up some of my favorite pieces from the brand at Nordstrom, including this cute tweed jacket."

"When it comes to denim you can never go wrong with Levi's. Out of all the denim I own, they fit the best and Nordstrom always has my favorite styles in stock."

Jeffrey Campbell

"I used to work at my local Nordstrom when I was in college, and I just couldn't resist Jeffrey Campbell's trendy shoes. They're comfortable, last me a long time, and come in a variety of styles suited for any fashion girl. I recently ordered a pair of chunky loafers by them and am excited to incorporate them into my spring wardrobe."

Who What Wear

"Obviously, I'm a bit biased, but I do love Nordstrom's new selection of our Who What Wear brand. One of my highlights: the zebra-print bag, which I'm dying to wear with an LBD for summer. It's the kind of piece that will instantly bring your look together, even if you're just wearing a white tee and jeans. I'm also always drawn to Mary Janes, so I love our version in the French vanilla color, in particular."


"I'm obsessed with how comfortable On's sneakers are. It's hard for me to get motivated to workout these days, but having the right shoes definitely helps put some spring in my step."

Marc Fisher

"As someone with size 11 feet, Nordstrom is the first place I look for trendy shoes that aren't too expensive. Marc Fisher is the brand I probably buy the most because their shoes are right on the money in terms of trends and they look triple the price."

Luv AJ

"I could buy all of their jewelry, it's so good. All of their pieces feel modern yet timeless at the same time, and best of all are under $100– I'm definitely obsessed. "
