The 18 Best Pieces I Own Are From Net-a-Porter, Shopbop, and Nordstrom

When it comes to shopping online, I regularly turn to a few of my favorite retailers for repeat purchases. Among them, Net-a-Porter, Shopbop, and Nordstrom always top my list of places to order from—for both their incredible edit of pieces and stellar customer service. So it’s no surprise that many of the items lining my wardrobe are orders from each of these stores. Many of them are still available, which is great news if you’re in the market for some new fashion buys or want to capitalize on some of the great end-of-year sales.

Ahead, I’m highlighting some of the best pieces I own, all from Net-a-Porter, Shopbop, and Nordstrom—from brand-new pieces that just dropped online to some of my top purchases from earlier this year. Here, see how I’ve been wearing all of them and shop each item for yourself.

Net-a-Porter

Trousers I'll be wearing in 2020

These pants from Cult Gaia feel utterly unique and cool with their apron-like ties at the front, paper-bag waist, and wide legs. 

The dress I'm telling everyone to buy

I cannot stop wearing this dress from Matteau, and now that it's gone on sale, there is no reason to hold off on ordering it.

The perfect matching workout set

My real trick for pulling off great style during a workout? Sticking to a matching set. This one from Vaara is the chicest one I own.

The coordinating leggings

The best bikini in my closet

I've written about this Matteau swimsuit countless times on Who What Wear before because it is truly the best classic bikini I own and will wear for years to come.

Shopbop

The bag I always get compliments on

I've owned this Tory Burch bag since last year and wear it to the office practically every day. It's such a beautiful piece that makes any outfit I'm wearing feel instantly polished.

The blazer I wear more than anything else in my closet

Out of everything in my closet, this Anine Bing blazer is the piece I wear most. With a slightly oversize fit, it's extremely comfortable to wear, but it also has a tailored finish so it always makes my outfits look pulled together. I get questions about it all of the time and can say with confidence that it's one of the most essential pieces I own.

A versatile slip dress

What I love most about this slip dress is that it feels a bit different than other ones I own. Finished with covered buttons down the front and a seafoam hue, it's such a stunning piece. And it works just as easily for a vacation or a wedding guest outfit.

The sunglasses that dominated my wardrobe this year

I own dozens of pairs of sunglasses, but the Krewe Milans are the silhouette I couldn't get enough of in 2019. The rectangular shape is a nod to the '90s and reminds me of the ones Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy was always snapped wearing.

Pajamas you'll want to leave home in

Sleeper took off this year with its feather-trimmed pajamas. This white pair sold out on Shopbop but you can still order the blue version.

A suit that is tailored to perfection but also comfortable

Not only is this suit from Rosetta Getty beautiful, but it's also always extremely comfortable. The pants are finished with an elastic waistband and practically feel like leggings.

The ultimate faux-fur jacket

When I lived in NYC, I learned that a faux-fur coat is the one wardrobe essential that will allow you to survive winter and also look stylish at the same time.

The jeans I simply cannot live without

@kristenmarienichols

This year, I practically lived in the Annina jeans from Citizens of Humanity that have a trouser-like silhouette with a wide leg and nipped-in waist. They look tailored and could not be more flattering, but the best part is how comfortable they are.

Nordstrom

Again with my favorite jeans

Here, wearing the jeans from above in another colorway. Trust me when I say these are an essential buy.

A romantic top you'll want to wear on a date night

@kristenmarienichols

Yes, I have a soft spot for romantic pieces like this one, with its toile print and corset-like silhouette. If you're ever in doubt about what to wear on a date night, this is foolproof.

The turtleneck I've been wearing for years

@kristenmarienichols

I've had these Splendid turtlenecks in my wardrobe for years. I first bought them when I lived in NYC because they're key for layering in the winter. 

Cashmere for under $200

If you (like me) love cashmere, you'll definitely want to snap up this beautiful sweater from Reformation.
