I highlight Nordstrom on the regular as a one-stop shop for basically everything you'd want in the style department. And yes, that includes those trendier basics. You know, those versatile pieces that have the fashion-forward twist. In fact, after scrolling through the new arrivals and the pages of some of my favorite brands in general, I'd go out and say that Nordstrom is basically leading the charge in the trendy-basics category. 

For the most part, I think there's really something for everybody in the current offering. If you're looking for elevated basics—like the faux-leather trousers above—Nordy has them. Need a few knits or jeans that can be mixed and matched with just about everything in your closet? Yep, there's a trove of A+ finds. 

Keep scrolling to check out an edit of the forward basics that are chic and very right now. Enjoy. 

Next, check out more chic basics to consider this season.
