The Nordstrom Made Department Has My Favorite Trendy Staples—I Like These Best

It’s no secret that Nordstrom is a go-to retailer for many of the editors on the team (myself included). After all, we cover our favorite buys on the regular. You may remember this piece on the chicest under-$100 items or this one on quality basics. And, fun fact, there’s actually one department I personally turn to quite often when I’m looking to uncover some of the freshest picks. Yep, I’m talking about the Nordstrom Made section.

This group of in-house lines stocks a variety of covetable pieces. Many of the items from labels like Open Edit and BP could easily fall into that "trendy staples” category—you know, finds that are fashion-forward and highly versatile in that they have the potential to be routine fixtures in your rotation. Below, I thought I’d round up some of the trendy staples I like best, including unique knits and cool outerwear silhouettes. Keep scrolling for loads of shopping inspo.

Next, check out more chic pieces to consider for the season.

Bobby Schuessler
Market Director

Hey, there. Bobby here. I've been working as a fashion writer in the industry for over a decade, contributing to various websites and brands such as Refinery29, Men's Health, and of course, Who What Wear. I've spent many years at Who What Wear, currently acting as the senior market editor where I source the coolest and chicest items at our favorite stores to help you, dear readers, build your version of the perfect wardrobe. While I lived in NYC and L.A. for a while, I actually now live in Boston. Sure, I've changed locations, but my fashion perspective remains the same, as I tend to reach for those classic basics with a twist (think slouchy moto jackets, trendy joggers, and the like). When I'm not writing or talking about fashion, you can often find me catching up on my favorite Bravo shows (Vanderpump Rules and The Real Houswives of New York City are my favorites) or sipping my signature cocktail—a vodka martini with a splash of cranberry and a twist.
