There is a trio of stores that many of us probably turn to on the regular. Yes, I’m talking about Nordstrom, H&M, and Madewell. While each retailer stocks a variety of different items, you can always find trend-forward pieces and quality basics at each. On that note, I thought I’d gain insight into the specific pieces those in my inner circle are loving right now.

I asked my fellow fashion editors to slack me over an edit of the items that recently piqued their interests. I also asked my mother and a few friends to go through the new arrivals and send me a handful of items they’re loving. After asking around, there ended up being nine pieces that seemed to be front-runners given their versatile and chic nature.

Keep scrolling to check out some of the best items to buy at Nordstrom, H&M, and Madewell. If you keep going, there’s also an array of other pieces to consider this season.
