I Look at Nordstrom Daily—30 Anti-Trend Finds I Can't Stop Thinking About

Nordstrom basics

I'll admit, I have a bad habit when it comes to shopping. Sometimes, I get so excited about trying new trends and putting my own spin on them that my wardrobe can end up looking like a pile of trends that don't always stay in style for longer than a season or two. This summer, I have two missions: to shop smarter and to buy pieces that are versatile and can be worn over and over again. Naturally, this journey towards timeless, chic pieces that I’ll be styling all season long led me to a deep dive on Nordstrom’s site for the best basics I could find. I went in with a few things in mind: great shoes that can go from day to night, jeans that I’ll keep for years, and dresses that can go from the office to happy hour. As always, Nordstrom had everything that I was looking for and more, from all of my favorite brands like COS and Levi’s, and styles that feel fresh and elevated.

While I may be focused on shopping smarter, that doesn't mean I’m willing to sacrifice style. Keep scrolling to see which chic Nordstrom basics I can’t wait to wear this summer.

My summer uniform is little white tops and denim, so this Topshop pick is perfect.
