As market editor, shopping specialist, and Nordstrom devotee, it’s my job (and my pleasure!) to unearth some of the coolest, new sartorial gems to hit the multi-brand retailer—and share the crème de la crème of picks with you, our dear readers. This season, Nordstrom is brimming with some of spring’s biggest trends guaranteed to elevate and add a fashion-forward touch to your new-season wardrobe. There’s a little something to suit every sartorial taste (and budget), from the shoe styles everyone will be wearing next month to the jean trends destined to be all over our feeds and the refreshingly cool accessories already spotted on our favorite fashion muses. Scroll below as I share the trending Nordstrom picks you’ll be glad to get your hands on before everyone else.


From blouses to pants and dresses, leather is unquestionably one of the biggest trends of 2020. This season, we're seeing the fabric come in all hues.

Shop the trend:


Modern suiting is a huge trend for spring (and fall) this year, so it's a great time to invest in some sharp tailoring. We saw three-piece suits in particular (layered with waistcoats and overcoats) reign supreme on the runways. They're the perfect power ensemble for every occasion. 

Shop the trend:

Puff Sleeves

Voluminous and billowy puff sleeves are everywhere right now, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. (They were seen in abundance on the F/W 20 runways too.) Opt for statement sleeves on a dress or blouse that will unquestionably add an of-the-moment touch to your spring ensemble.

Shop the trend:

'70s-Inspired Jeans

From flares to boot-cut styles and wide-leg silhouettes, '70s-inspired jeans are trending hard for spring 2020—already spotted on celebrities and influencers around the world. Give your skinnies a break and opt for a retro silhouette this season instead. 

Shop the trend:

If there's one jewelry trend to invest in this season, make it a chain-link necklace—spotted in abundance on the runways and on the street style set. Luckily, Nordstrom has a great selection for every budget. 

Shop the trend:

Modern Loafers

Loafers are having quite the comeback this spring, with heeled loafers in particular reigning supreme on the runways. This season's iterations come with unique sartorial twists, such as slingback styles, buckles, and textured fabrics.

Shop the trend:

XL Tote Bags

When it comes to bags this season, the bigger the better. Opt for an extra-large tote or a sling bag to take on the trend and you'll never have to leave home again without an extra pair of shoes, magazines, lipsticks, laptop, etc.

Shop the trend:

Baseball Hats

Baseball hats are the unexpected sporty trend we spotted on the runways and are currently dominating our Insta feeds. Fashion girls are wearing them with everything from suits to dresses—exuding a casual-cool touch.
