There's nothing worse than staring at your closet and being met with nothing but items that don't feel like they go together. When that happens, nine times out of 10, it's because you haven't yet built a foundation of reliable, versatile pieces that just work no matter what you pair them with. Think button-down shirts, tees, great jeans, and classic tailored separates—items that can be mixed and matched in dozens of ways with the same chic outcome.

Trust me. I've been there. It comes with being easily persuaded to buy trendy finds rather than prioritizing basics. Don't worry, though. If I could rehabilitate my wardrobe, so can you. To make the process a tad less daunting, I went ahead and did the work for you. Below, scroll through 34 anti-trend spring items from Nordstrom that'll make getting dressed in the morning easier than ever before. No more dreading your daily outfit selection. With the help of the pieces below, you'll be out the door in 10 minutes flat.
