Shop Eliza's picks:

"I was so excited when I found out that Nordstrom was going to carry pieces from Kathryn Bowen because of the brand's subtle, sensual aesthetic. Every single one of the Canadian designer's pieces blow me away, including this mesh cardigan. The color is just stunning."

"I've been super into the trend of pairing Bermuda shorts with knee-high boots lately, with photos of the combo taking up most of the space in my Instagram Saved folder, so of course, when I found these black tailored shorts from & Other Stories, I had to jump on them."

"Now that I've found my Bermuda shorts, I need some knee-high boots to pair with them. Hint: I found them."

"I've had my eye on these Topshop jeans for a while now, and now that they're on sale, I think it's time for me to finally make my move."

Shop Sierra's picks:

"This dress is so futuristic. We have to start 2022 in its direction. Statement shoulder pads, an open back, and formfitted cups to accentuate your natural bust. I can't think of a more flattering design. Ever since I found it, I've imagined taking it along with me to my next tropical destination."

"I love wearing something slightly festive on random holidays, and with Valentine's Day coming up, I can so imagine letting my WFH outfit that day be centered around this tee. It really captures my mood and is also very cool."

"In 2022, we are not forgetting about the accessories. They really make an outfit so here I come with another one that you simply need. A good plie is required when wearing these flats. They are both comfortable and with the square toe at the forefront, so on-trend for the new year."

Shop Allyson's picks:

"I first came across this pretty crop top on Instagram and have been thinking about it ever since."

"In case you haven't heard, it's time to get a pair of dark denim jeans."

"Good news: Lisa Says Gah is on Nordstrom now!"

"Is it just me, or do Nike socks keep getting cooler and cooler?"

Shop Bobby's picks:

"I just can't get enough of the oversize button-down trend. This vibrant green option gets an A+."

"A beautiful silhouette you can wear with everything from jeans to trousers to skirts."

Shop Anna's picks:

"Chunky boots aren't going anywhere, and this sleek silhouette might be my favorite take on the trend yet. Knowing Ganni's cool-girl clientele, I'm not the only one who thinks so."

"I love a good relaxed trouser, and I can already tell these will be the foundation to so many of my 2022 outfits."

"Nordstrom's edit of emerging brands is so good right now, and Sammy B is an NYC-based brand that deserves to be on your radar. I'm eyeing this midi skirt which would look especially cool with tall boots à la Bella Hadid."

"Isa Boulder is constantly blowing my mind and this sculptural knit bra is the latest thing I'm freaking out over."

Shop Jasmine's picks:

"When I found out the Black-owned jewelry brand L'Enchanteur joined Nordstrom, I nearly lost it, as I'm obsessed with their pieces. These stunning earrings are made for Zoom meetings."

"I'm still not over art-inspired prints, so this stunning dress is at the top of my wish list. I can envision myself wearing it with a wool coat and boots in winter's remaining days and sandals in the spring."

"I'm all about an affordable fashion find that looks luxe, and these sandals are just that."
