Nordstrom's Fashion Editor on the Under-$100 Items It Can Barely Keep in Stock



There's no doubt we love an affordable Nordstrom find here at Who What Wear. And whether we're scooping up trusty basics or a great sale find, we'll be the first ones to share it with you, our dear readers. But to get even further insight on what's hot at the reliable multi-brand retailer, we love to tap into our Nordstrom experts. 

Today, fashion managing editor Kate Bellman is revealing some of the affordable Nordstrom items that the retailer can barely keep in stock this season. From best-selling leggings to statement dresses, these are the under-$100 items that customers have been snapping up for the season, and perhaps you'll be so inclined to too.

"I can’t wait to finally pack my bags for a weekend trip this summer. This tunic is the perfect packable shape and the print itself makes me dream of an umbrella cocktail." — Bellman

"The traditional straw tote has gone through a makeover in vibrant, poppy colors and new silhouettes, like this functional crossbody. I don’t anticipate taking this bag off all summer."

"It’s the season of prints, and one of my favorites is a statement stripe. I love the bold colors of these stripes, making it perfect for a summer wedding or a night out." 


"One of the most relevant trends this summer is what we’ve coined 'romantic bohemian.' This top is really the essence of the trend with its laid-back silhouette and cool mixed tropical print."

"The square-toe strappy sandal is the must-have shoe of the summer. This pair is so versatile."

"Our customers have been in love with this showstopping neckline and puffed sleeves of this romantic top for a date night out."

"Chunky lug soles are just as relevant in summer sandals as they were in your favorite fall combat boot. This flatform version really gives your outfit an extra boost."

"The sweet nature of this blouse with the delicate florals, voluminous sleeves, and oversize collar bring romance to any outfit."

"Shorts took off in a big way last summer while people were shifting toward WFH, and we don’t see the popularity of denim cutoffs going away any time soon."

"This necklace is the perfect fusion of two key jewelry trends—the gold-link chain and cool crafty beads. It reminds me of a grown-up version of summer camp."

"I can’t say enough how much I’m loving prints this summer. That carries into my activewear as well!"

"The classic Brazil logo style of these flip-flops is the summer essential! I own them in every color (as do many of our customers!)."

"This T-shirt is the perfect blend of a soft vintage wash that feels like you’ve had it for years. It has a modern, relaxed fit, making it the perfect topper for any look."

"I’m not giving up on soft pants just yet, and I’m super drawn to the graphic yin-and-yang nature of these joggers."
