I Spent Hours Looking for the Best Summer Pieces at Nordstrom—These 40 Are Perf

I live in the South where summers are long and uncomfortably hot, but my solace is that I love shopping for summer clothes and accessories. It's the most fun season for fashion by a mile, in my opinion, and Nordstrom's selection of summer items is truly next-level. 

As a Who What Wear editor, it's part of my job to be well-versed in all things Nordstrom. I spent a good part of a day scrolling through the site in search of the best summer items, and I don't even need to feel guilty about all of that time spent staring at clothes on the computer.

Between Open Edit, Topshop, Reformation, Agolde, etc.,  there are tons of chic items to be had at Nordstrom right now. There are a few that are honestly so good that I can't get over them, and most are quite affordable. Plus, more great news: They're all included in this story.

So without further ado, keep scrolling to shop the Nordstrom summer items that are best described as perfect.

If you're a tank-top person, you'll appreciate this excellent one.

If you don't order this pretty top immediately, someone else will.

I predict these will be the next It Prada shades.

If you'd prefer to not spend over $500 on sunglasses, these are pretty great too.

Nothing screams summer like a pair of chic canvas Birkenstocks.

These polished denim shorts have barely left my body since I ordered them.

The perfect thing to wear with your Sambas.

If you're going to splurge on a Reformation dress, my advice is to make it this one.

I'm not surprised in the least that these are selling out.

Speaking of skirts, a satin slip skirt is a key summer basic, and I found you a great one.

Nordstrom just stocked this popular tank in new colors, and you should probably just order one of each before they sell out.

At $35, I'd order this chic, comfortable corset in a second.

The perfect summer swap for jeans.

How to make your outfit more fun without really trying.

Just a cute and easy linen shirt you'll want to throw on constantly.

Thong sandals don't get more elevated than this highly rated pair.

The ribbed fabric makes this look pricier than the average knit dress.

I've been wearing these earrings constantly and can't get over how expensive they look IRL.

This will go with everything and keep you cool while it's at it.

A chic (and much less pricey alt) to that viral Prada one.

Another great straw tote that looks far more expensive than it is.

The frayed slit hems and the price are what got me.

I've been on the hunt for a summer jacket like this for ages.

When you only include one swimsuit in a story, it better be a good one.

I think about these pretty flats more than I care to admit.

These wildly popular pants now come in summer-ready ivory.

It's strapless-bra season, and this one comes highly rated.

Everyone's favorite Skims T-shirt now comes in chic summery blue.

Put this on your summer vacation packing list.

Summer is the perfect time for a new pair of white socks.

The reviews for these new Nike leggings are glowing.

I'd order the dress and then style it just like they did.

Swapping your wool blazer for a linen one in the summer is highly recommended.

If this were in my closet, I'm pretty sure I'd wear it constantly.
