These 8 French Wardrobe Essentials Are All at Nordstrom Right Now

As you know, Nordstrom is a wardrobe basics goldmine. If you need basics, you don't really even need to look anywhere else. But now for some new information: Nordstrom is having a huge winter sale, and it's chock-full of items that you can wear straight into spring. To help narrow things down, I decided to comb through the sale using the lens of French wardrobe essentials, because no one does basics better than the French.

While Paris is, of course, one of the world's most fashionable cities, French women like what they like, and are perfectly happy to wear a blazer, jeans, and ankle boots every day. That said, there are many exceptions to this and many stereotypes exist about French style, but one thing that remains true is that French women love a chic basic, and that's why I'm letting them be my Nordstrom sale shopping guides.

With that, scroll on to shop 8 basics French girls love that happen to be on sale at Nordstrom right now.
