If you’re looking for the best of the best in comfortable, low-key clothing, you’ve landed in the right spot. Yep, we highlight the top-rated fashion items across all categories, including this recent story on the best-reviewed loungewear. Today, we’re continuing with an edit of the top-rated pieces in a trio of categories that fits well within that casual-dressing range: jeans, tees, and sneakers.
Given that Nordstrom is a universal go-to for many of us, we decided to focus on the everyday items that have the best positive reviews at this retailer, specifically. What you’ll find below is a culmination of affordable basic tees, of-the-moment denim cuts, and classic sneakers that all have at least four out of five stars. We also share a customer review for each item to better inform your purchase, in case you're shopping right now.
"These are perfect, I have shopped for jeans for months and then decided to try Levis, again, wore them in HS! They are the best, just plain jeans as I remember them, great weight and style, nothing schmancy about them, but that's exactly what I wanted." — Kindin
"Super cute and fit like a dream! I love these jeans. They are very comfortable, but very long. I have a 32 inch inseam and I would say these are about 3 inches too long for me. Really great jeans for the price point so I don't mind having to pay to get them hemmed." — kclvsnordstrom
"This is the best little cropped T-shirt!! I seriously bought 2 in black and 2 in white just because I know I will be wearing these on repeat this summer! The perfect fit and length to go with leggings, joggers, shorts, skirts, everything! I would say this is a closet [staple] for sure!" — AshOt
"I have been looking for distressed high waisted mom jeans forever and these are perfect! Not too long but not to short, I’m 5’8 and they hit at just the right spot above my ankle. Size up 1 size. Can’t wait to wear these." — Sonyap4
"Thank-you: Nike, for bringing this shoe back. I purchased them, and give them five stars. Standing and walking all day long, on those hospital floors, with these shoe makes it so much easier." — ChrystalKarenJ431704771
"I have been waiting patiently for this shirt to be brought back! It is the perfect top for layering and looks [good] with skirts, pants, jeans, or whatever you pair it with. It is true to size and fits nicely. I’ve bought every color and will buy more if/when additional colors are available. This is a wardrobe staple!" — SusieQ858
"After trying several jeans with the high waist and cropped look to only have them hit the floor I finally found these!with a 251/2 inseam they are perfect. There have no stretch which gives them a good quality feel and yet are not stiff. The frayed hem is of good quality and doesn’t have an overly worn look." — MichelleKS
"I was looking for [a dressier] looking t shirt for the summer, and this fits the bill. I'm a small/medium, but chose the small based on the recommendation. It’s fitted, and the material is very nice. It’s a little sheer, but in black and animal print it doesn’t show much." — namaste26
"I looooove these. They aren't super stretchy. I am normally a 25 or 24. I bought [them] in a 24 and at first they were tighter than I'd prefer but after wearing them the loosened up little, the equivalent of like 1/2 a size. I have worn them many time and just love them!" — KTLALA
"I am a size 20, and these jeans fit perfectly! I've washed and worn them several times, and they come out looking nice except for a quick iron touch up on the hem. The pockets are huge, which I love, but can sag open at times. The legs are wide and create a nice line. The fabric is soft and gives just enough to be comfortable. It is medium weight, so good for year round wearing. The D rings on the belt work well. I live these jeans and wish I could wear them more often." — IdahoDee
