Sorry to the Basics in My Closet—These 30 Nordstrom Items Might Replace You

Nordstrom basics



Do you ever start shopping and realize that you don't just want one or two items but suddenly crave an entire wardrobe overhaul? Because, same. On a recent visit to peruse the new-arrivals section on Nordstrom's site, I came across so many strong pieces from the retailer that I started envisioning a whole new wardrobe with these chic updates. The retailer's selection is always a pretty strong one, but on this particular occasion, it was the wardrobe basics that really caught my eye and made me consider replacing the very versions in my own closet.

These aren't just your plain T-shirts or basic leggings. No, the new Nordstrom items I'm about to showcase here each have something special about them that sets them apart from the basics you could find anywhere else. Think trendy relaxed jeans, printed mesh tops, and even elevated-looking trousers that are all delightfully affordable. As the kids say, yes, I'm "simping" over these cool finds and I think you will, too. Scroll down to shop all my picks.
