If summer shopping is on your mind, you’re going to be quite interested in what’s coming your way. I decided to pull out a range of fresh items that have caught my eye recently that I think you’ll be into as well. Specifically, I dove into the new arrivals at two go-to shops for many. I’m talking about Nordstrom and Shopbop.

Each of these retailers currently has a smattering of new pieces across categories, but I found the offering of trendy basics to be especially noteworthy. The items in question are all versatile and could become wardrobe staples. They just have a little something extra to them compared to regular tried-and-true basics.

Below, you’ll uncover a curation of the items that could absolutely level up your closet thanks to their simple yet forward nature. Keep scrolling for elevated tees, of-the-moment shorts, and chic everyday denim silhouettes.
