A Gen Zer Walks Into Nordstrom—Here Are the 57 Trendy and Cool Buys They Find

As someone who falls into the category of Gen Z, I've always found it tricky to find pieces I really love when taking a quick look at the Nordstrom site. I always see other editors' great finds, so I decided to take a deep dive and ended up proving myself wrong. It's already been established that Nordstrom is a great shopping destination for basics, but if you scan the site on an editor level, there are plenty of fun and trendy pieces waiting for you to find them. Don't be fooled by the word trendy because any of the items below will get a ton of wear.

Nordstrom not only has its own brands like Open Edit and BP., but it came to my attention that it also houses some of WWW's favorites like Mango, & Other Stories, and Lisa Says Gah. Basically, it's a candy store for the fashion set, and I found all the full-size chocolate bars. I relayed all 57 items that caught my eye below so you don't have to do the hours of scrolling that I did. 

You'll get a ton of wear out of this. The patchwork detail makes it cooler than your average button-down.

Instead of opting for a basic long-sleeve shirt, try one like this that is still simple enough to style in many ways but has a fun detail that draws attention. 

At this point, Western boots are a wardrobe staple.

Comfy and chic—the perfect combo.

Now that's a unique designer bag. (Plus, it's under $100!)

Be daring and go for the entire set or opt for the top as a statement piece.

I'm convinced that anything in this color looks good.

Choose a side depending on your mood that day. 

Haven't you heard? Bomber jackets have made a comeback.

You need this in your jewelry box.

Clearly, I love green. (And I know you do too.)

I'm really into this ombré stripe situation.

I think I've found my new favorite sunglasses. 

The square toe make these ballet flats feel so much fresher.

Cargo pants are back in full force. Hello, 2004.

If you told me these were $300, I would believe you.

Pantone announced that the color of the year was Very Peri, so I predict all shades of purple will be taking over in the near future.

This bag is simple, but it'll go with almost anything.

A relaxed fit on pants is everything for 2022.

If you wanted to wear this out, I wouldn't blame you.

These meet the perfect balance between kitschy and modern.

If you already have a trusty black blazer, this also comes in lime green.

I know these are pajamas, but is it bad I want to wear them to brunch?

YanYan makes me want to wear fun knitwear all the time.

There are butterflies on the back pocket, in case you needed more convincing.

I don't own a cable-knit sweater yet, but I'll be starting with this one.

Yep, these are still the coolest pair of jeans I've seen.

Shoutout to Kendall Jenner for putting these on the map.

I never thought I'd be into a Skims logo print, but here we are.

These would pair really well with an all-black 'fit.
