We're Gen Z and Work in Fashion—the 30 Nordstrom Finds We Won't Shut Up About

When it comes to navigating the Nordstrom website, Who What Wear editors do it best. (We promise that statement is only a little bit biased.) Shopping is legitimately a part of our job, so we've become experts at navigating through the hundreds of pages of new arrivals, best sellers, and sale items on Nordstrom. We also love tapping Gen Z here, so why not get the opinions of the experts of both? Our Gen Z editors have pretty similar taste and are always chatting about what's new, from the latest TikTok trend to the cool sweatshirt we just saw on a new-arrivals page. Many people try to steer away from their age stereotypes, but we've decided to just embrace them full-on. 

When asked to share their Nordstrom finds with me, our editors admitted they already had a wish list they've been adding to. (What can we say? We're always on the fashion hunt.) From unique wardrobe staples to niche designer picks, there are so many pieces you'll want to add to your cart immediately. Keep scrolling to take a look.

"Pearls are having a moment, and I am in full support, but I am pretty loyal to gold jewelry. This necklace is the perfect combination of a trend I love and a staple in my wardrobe."

"I can't stay away from saturated hues these days, but I'm not complaining. This dress is perfect for the transitional weather that we've been experiencing in NYC lately."

"Not to be dramatic, but I am in awe of these heels. The heel is so much more intricate and eye-catching than your typical block heel, but the dainty laces still add a casual element. It's safe to say that I'm obsessed."

"The next time I see this angled handbag, I hope it's hanging on my arm. The golden yellow works for all seasons and fits right in with all of the other punchy colors in my closet right now."

"Two words: elevated basic. This summer, you can expect to see me pairing this top with maxi skirts, low-rise jeans, parachute pants, and more. The opportunities are endless."

"I'm such a fan of loose silhouettes in the summertime, and this one gives the look of a dress while still technically being a jumpsuit. The ruffle-trimmed straps add a romantic touch, and I can tell I'll be wearing this piece on repeat."

"The reviews don't lie. This scent smells exactly like summer and lasts all day long. I put this on every day before leaving the house and receive multiple compliments every time."

"I refuse to leave the house without a pair of sunglasses in my purse. This pair is super sleek and will match all of my summer 'fits."

"I've been swooning over the swimwear from this Black-owned brand for months now, but this is the piece I keep coming back to. The color, the ruching, and the nylon fabric get an A+ from me."

"These jeans are on-trend and under $50, which is code for going in my cart immediately. I'll be pairing them with everything from crop tops to oversize jackets and fun knits."

"TBH, I already own these, and I can't stop wearing them. I've convinced everyone to buy the same pair."

"Collegiate-style athleisure has been one of my favorite trends for a few years now. I love this gender-neutral style and the fact that Nordstrom made merch."

"Come summer, I live in tortoiseshell sunnies. I love the timeless shape of these frames too."

"As soon as the weather hits 70° and sunny, maxi dresses move to the forefront of my closet. I love this cherry-red check print and its $45 price tag."

"Relaxed tailoring is a trend I hope never goes out of style. Pants like these are my go-to on days when I'm in the office. They feel work appropriate and still maintain my personal style."

"When the packaging and the product are equally beautiful, I must add the item to my cart. This might be my new favorite polish color."

"True story: I've used this product every night for two years now. The vitamin C and squalane brighten and hydrate my skin overnight, so I wake and notice an immediate difference. It's always sitting in my cart ready to go for when I run out." 

"Again with the relaxed tailoring, but I just can't help myself. This linen style can be worn over a slip dress, jeans and a tee, or matching trousers."

"A few of our WWW co-workers have accessorized their wedding guest outfits with this clutch, and I think I need to follow suit. I love this funky style that still feels sophisticated."

"I don't know what I love more—the oversize collar or smocked waist. Either way, I'm adding this to my cart."

"I tried this jacket on in-store and immediately knew I had to have it. I'm usually a size small, but I went up a few sizes so it would have a more relaxed fit."

"If you think the front of this blazer is chic, wait till you see the back. My jaw dropped."

"I've only owned this bag for a few days, and it's already become one of my favorites. It's sleek, has a unique shape, and is still versatile."

"Ouai is known for top-tier haircare products, but I suggest you don't sleep on the brand's scent department. Its perfumes always sell out, and this candle has become my favorite part of my nighttime routine."

I'm a Converse girl through and through, and I know I already own quite a few pairs, but I can't resist this one. The tiny hearts just do it for me—what can I say?

"Nineties-style handbags are trending hard for the summer, and this Tory Burch bag champions the look perfectly."

"My dream is to own a piece from Issey Miyake, and I think I'll start with this one."

"Every time I see this bag on the Nordstrom page, I think it's designer. If you're looking for a unique yet sleek handbag on a budget, this is the one."

"When it comes to color, I am always down for a pop of pink. Not only does this cardigan look comfortable, but it also seems easy to style. I know I'd wear it with a T-shirt and relaxed jeans."

"If there's fun knitwear involved, you can sign me up. YanYan always makes pieces that are luxuriously soft and will bring anyone joy."
