I Looked at Every Marked-Down Basic at Nordstrom to Bring You the Best 41

A couple of things we know to be true are 1) I love a good basic and 2) Nordstrom is pretty much the best place to buy them. So it should come as no surprise that when I found out everyone's favorite site was having a sale, I was quick to do a deep dive to see which fashion essentials were on the markdown list. 

The good news is that there were a lot, but that was also kind of the bad news because you can’t even imagine what it took for me to edit the selection down to what you’re about to find below.

Next: I'm 5'2", and these are the spring trends on my shopping list.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
