I Live in Basics, But These Fun Nordstrom Items Have My Full Attention

My day-to-day style is pretty simple. I typically go for a T-shirt or sweater, jeans, and some sort of easy jacket in a neutral color. That said, I am one to really bring it with statement accessories to elevate my pared-down vibes. Oh, and I shop a lot at Nordstrom when I’m looking for those top-notch basics. But as I recently scrolled through the new arrivals for another story, I noticed quite the smattering of fun pieces that really caught my attention.

Sure, I’ll always offer up my picks of the best jeans or white T-shirts, but the next-level finds I’m referring to just feel like they need to be seen. So with that, I pulled an edit of fun Nordstrom items for you below. Each piece is unique and incredibly versatile and could be styled in many different ways (just like the basics you know and love). Without further ado, keep scrolling for some shopping inspo.
