I'm Predicting Nordstrom's Next 23 Cult-Favorite Items

Best New Summer Trends



You might have noticed that we do a lot of stories based on customer reviews. From five-star drugstore dry shampoos to the best-reviewed items at Urban Outfitters, we do these roundups because it's always helpful to see what shoppers are saying before you take the plunge. However, this time around, I'm taking a different approach. You may know about über-popular items like Levi's skinny jeans with over 11,000 reviews on Amazon or Zella leggings that boast over 6000 Nordstrom reviews. But what are the next cult-favorite items? That's what I'm about to predict.

These newer arrivals or trending items don't have thousands of reviews yet, but I predict that these items below will be the next big things. In due time, they will be cult favorites—just watch. Scroll down to shop my predictions about the next cult-favorite pieces at Nordstrom. 

Jackets and Sweatshirts

Best Tie-Dye Sweatshirts



Tie-dye hoodies and sweatpants are all over Instagram and TikTok right now. Of all the options at Nordstrom, this is my #1 pick because of its reasonable price and subtle pastel colors. 

I browsed through every single trench coat on Nordstrom's website, and I believe this one is the ideal combination of style and affordability. I'm in love with the light khaki color and sleek shape. Since we're in the middle of the rainy season, I think this coat will become a customer favorite in no time. 

Madewell items consistently have outstanding reviews on Nordstrom's website, so it's only a matter of time before everyone catches on to this light jacket that's perfect for transitional weather. 



Due to the current demand for comfy-yet-cute clothes for staying at home, I predict this adorable embroidered sweater—which our own Allyson Payer owns—will become a cult-favorite in no time. 

Bras, Underwear, and Sleepwear

Honeydew Intimates is a top-rated lingerie brand at Nordstrom. This is its newest bra design, and I can tell that it's going to be a best-seller. The fabric is ultra-soft, the straps are comfortable, and the lilac color is very on-trend. 

When it gets too hot for sweatpants, these pastel $26 shorts are the next best thing. 

This satiny top is as comfortable as your favorite T-shirt, but 10 times chicer. 

This new thong by Natori is bound to become just as popular as the brand's Natori's Feathers Underwire Contour Bra, which takes the title of Nordstrom's most-reviewed bra and is a consistent best-seller. 

As the only multi-brand retailer to carry Kim Kardashian West's brand Skims, Nordstrom is at an advantage to attract her many, many fans with the brand's new arrivals. I've tested out this bralette and can confirm that it's ultra-comfortable and barely noticeable after wearing it all day long. 

Leave it to Kim Kardashian West to convince ladies that we need a pair of boxers. As the weather warms up, these will be the perfect thing to wear to bed and around the house.

Shoes and Accessories

Gold chain necklaces are a trend that has major staying power, and you can't go wrong with a chic $25 interpretation. 

These old-school sneakers are seeing quite the resurgence lately, with everyone from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to fashion editors wearing them nonstop. 

Fact: Staud knows how to make a mean It bag. This latest addition is sure to become Instagram famous in no time. 

Ask any fashion girl about her favorite shoe brand, and By FAR is guaranteed to come up repeatedly. The brand's newest design is wearable thanks to the kitten heel, but the snakeskin print and square toe lend the shoes a cool edge. 

Nike still dominates when it comes to highly anticipated sneaker launches, and I predict these high-tops will be no exception. 

Blouses and Dresses

This satiny dress looks much more expensive than it really is. It's just the kind of fun purchase that makes me excited about warm weather. 

Ganni has a reputation for selling extremely well, and fashion girls clamor to buy new arrivals every season. I think this pistachio beauty will quickly become an It item because of its statement sleeves and on-trend pastel color. 

This is another pretty floral dress that looks like it could be by a luxury designer. (Brock Collection, anyone?) ASTR the Label is a highly rated brand at Nordstrom, and this new dress will certainly attract fans. 

I know a good deal when I see one, and this on-sale Topshop dress is definitely one. It has me dreaming of summer picnics. 

This already-popular Halogen dress has just been released in this new polka-dot colorway, and I think it will sell like hotcakes because of its easy-to-wear shape and modest silhouette that works for nearly every occasion under the sun.

Jeans, Shorts, and Jumpsuits

Best New Arrivals From Nordstrom for Summer 2020



I think this jumpsuit can become a cult-favorite because it's a super-easy one-and-done outfit that's comfortable yet stylish. Plus, it already has Instagram fans like Tamara Mory, as seen above. 

Wit & Wisdom's jeggings have an impressive 600 reviews on Nordstrom's website, so it's only a matter of time before the brand's newest jeans climb up the rankings as well. Nothing says warm weather like white jeans, right? 

Madewell is consistently a top-seller at Nordstrom and I have a strong feeling that these denim shorts will be the brand's next hit. Everyone already trusts Madewell's quality and fit, and these white shorts are the perfect canvas for showing off cute summery tops.
