Believe It or Not, These 26 Affordable Summer Basics Just Got Even Cheaper

Without needing to buy things for weddings, parties, and trips this summer, the segment of my wardrobe that's grown exponentially as of late is the basics one. Casual dresses, pull-on shorts, tank tops, and sandals are filling my cart this summer, and of course, one of the easiest places to find these warm-weather basics is Nordstrom and its vast array of in-house brands. Whether or not you realize it, if you're a Nordstrom shopper, you're probably already familiar with them. Among the offerings are BP., Treasure & Bond, Leith, and Chelsea28. 

So what's my point, exactly? So glad you asked. From now until August 3, Nordstrom is having a big sale on its in-house brands, and there are tons of summer basics to choose from, and they're even cheaper than they already were. Upon perusing the 700+ items included in the sale, I found most prices to be marked down by a whopping 40 to 60%. Exciting, right? in case you don't have time to look through more than 700 Nordstrom items (understandable), I did so for you. Keep scrolling to shop your best basics bets while they're majorly marked down.
