I'm a Senior Shopping Editor—These Are the Nordstrom Basics I Always Recommend

As a person with minimalist-leaning fashion sensibilities, I've spent years of time and money trying, testing, and acquiring the perfect basics, and I write about these staples daily, from the best white tees to French girl–inspired essentials (It's part of the job as Who What Wear's senior market editor.) I'm a firm believer that having a well-rounded collection of solid, versatile, and reliable basics will elevate your looks and serve as the backbone of your year-round wardrobe.

I have a handful of brands I gravitate toward when I'm looking to update my wardrobe staples—many of which can be found at Nordstrom. In fact, I'd say 80% of my wardrobe consists of staples from the trusty retailer, so today, I wanted to share the Nordstrom basics I always recommend to friends, family, and, of course, our dear readers. If you're looking for new elevated essentials, then keep scrolling for some of my absolute favorites.

I'm obsessed with the color and fit of this blazer.

You just can't go wrong with Levi's 501's.

A denim jacket that will go with literally everything.

COS never fails to impress with its elevated knits.

I'm honestly impressed at how chic this is for the price.

I own these in beige and black. The drape and fit are perfection.

Levi's Wedgie Fit Jeans are a cult favorite.

& Other Stories does an amazing job when it comes to sleek sweaters.

Love the '90s vibes of this chic leather bomber.

This tank has the perfect relaxed fit. I wear it way too often.

Don't underestimate the power of a chic black belt.

Skims always wins when it comes to layering basics.
