Patience Is Not My Virtue: 9 Spring Trends Already In My Nordstrom Shopping Cart


@chainkyr STYLING: Remain Birger Christensen Pink Shirt ($264)

It’s a truth universally known that fashion editors are not patient. We’re always forward-looking to the fashion seasons ahead, itching to know what the next buzzing trends are, and lusting to get our hands on the new It items before everyone else. I am certainly guilty as charged. So while it may still be January, it hasn't stopped me from getting ahead and shopping for the coolest pieces that spring has in store.

After perusing Nordstrom’s site from top to bottom this week, I’ve already added a handful of fresh items that hit this year’s biggest trends. From open-back dresses to micro-mini skirts, take a peek below to get ahead of next season'ss must-have pieces.


Cute polo-style tops have been gaining momentum for the past few seasons and this spring they're set to reign supreme. Whether you opt for a lightweight short sleeve knit or a chic polo sweater they're the perfect casual top to pair with everything from mini skirts to shorts and jeans.

Relaxed Trousers

It's all about loose and relaxed trousers for spring—striking the perfect balance of comfort and polish. They were spotted all over the S/S 21 collections and will look cool with everything from a graphic tee to a bandeau or a blazer. 

Open-Back Dresses

Skin is in for spring 2021 and one of the easiest ways to show a little is with a chic backless dress—spotted on all the biggest runway shows.

Second Skin Tops

Tissue-thin second skin tops continue their popularity into spring. Easy to layer or wear alone, opt for one in a playful print if you're lusting to liven up your look.


Micro Minis

Say hello to sky-high hemlines this spring! Micro minis are set to dominate this upcoming season. Pair the fun and frivolous skirt with flats and a modest knit top for a charming spring look.

House Slippers

We continue to lean into all things comfy this spring, and shoes are no exception. House slippers (that can easily be worn out of the house) are rising to fame—from slip-on silhouettes to trending clog styles.

Long Necklaces

After many seasons of short chunky collars, we're happy to hear that refreshingly cool long necklaces are back for spring—as spotted at all the major designer collections from Chanel to Dior, Victoria Beckham to Chloé.

Baggy Jeans

Take a break from your skinny jeans this spring and go for a relaxed silhouette instead. Fresh and cool, they're easy to wear with everything from oversize blazers to bikini tops.

Bubblegum Pink

There's a new color trend in town and this one is guaranteed to turn heads. Bold, bubblegum pink is set to flood our feeds this spring—adding a lively and vibrant touch to our ensembles.
