I Like Simple Clothes—These Versatile Nordstrom Items Will Work Best for Me

I'm a seasoned shopper, and there's one rule that I live by: Start with the basics and build your wardrobe from there. Sure, buying a bunch of trendy pieces every season is fun, but even the brightest, shiniest items need a few good, simple pieces to go with them. But where and how do you find the best basics? That is the question.

I'm talking about the really good basics: white T-shirts, well-fitting jeans, blazers… You know the deal. These are the pieces that you can wear season after season, and they still feel fresh. If I'm being honest, finding the perfect foundational pieces can sometimes feel more difficult than shopping for the season's most in-demand trends.

That's why I took the time to find 30 amazing and simple pieces from Nordstrom for you to shop right now. Nordstrom has so many brands that I know and love to wear, so going to the retailer when I'm looking for the building blocks of my wardrobe is a no-brainer. I actually own several of these pieces and wear them on a near-daily basis, so they have my official stamp of approval.
