This Simple Outfit Formula Is The Secret To Looking Effortlessly Chic

The fashion world is like a high-speed train that never quite slows down. With the constant influx of trends being pumped out, it's important to have simple, easy outfit formulas to reach for when your brain is on overload. It's hard to go wrong with jeans paired with simple blouses, as the outfit combinations are endless. Nordstrom is a WWW editor's favorite online retail destination to get these essential outfit building blocks. I took a look through Nordstrom's jeans and blouses and curated a selection of some top-notch picks to snag ASAP.

Whether you are into dark wash over light or you love roomier mom jeans over a skinny cut, Nordstrom has a robust stock of denim to select from. On top of that, there are endless simple tops available as well. From striped tees to cutout blouses, there's something for everyone. Keep scrolling to grab some of these essential pieces so you can mix 'n' match jeans and pretty tops in no time.
