Everyone plays favorites with where they shop for certain fashion items. Maybe your ultimate destination for cute shoes is Shopbop (it’s ours too) or you go ham on H&M’s pretty dresses (same, again). Well, when it comes to basics, I’m a die-hard for Nordstrom. No matter what time of year it is or which direction my style is leaning toward at the moment, I can usually be found eyeing the retailer’s winning selection of wardrobe staples and, on occasion, adding them to my cart.
Since I consider myself an expert in this arena, I’ve taken it upon myself to showcase all the useful clothing items that are filling my cart (and my heart) right now. Naturally, everything I’m loving at the moment is affordable, too, with nothing topping $55 in this roundup. So continue on to see all the best affordable Nordstrom basics, which I’ve helpfully broken down by category.
