I Just Created 6 Spectacular Summer Outfits From Nordstrom for Under $300

As a fashion editor who covers Nordstrom regularly and peruses their site practically every single day, I’ve come to know the ins and outs of what brands, basics, and trend-forward pieces are worth snapping up from the trusty retailer. And since the summer season is just around the corner I have my sights set on all the coolest warm-weather pieces I’ve already spotted on their site and I’m dreaming of all the cool ways to wear them. In fact, if you need some inspiration on what exactly to wear this summer, without spending a fortune, below I’ve put together some chic summer outfit ideas—all from Nordstrom—for under $300. Whether you’re looking for a cool denim shorts outfit or simple summer dress and sandals formula, take a peek below for plenty of inspo.

Tops with wraparound ties are a huge trend this summer—which can easily be dressed up or down. Give the chic blouse a casual spin by pairing it with flattering denim shorts and a luxe market tote, and finish the look with elevated slides.

You can’t get through summer without a pretty floral frock. All this Ref one needs is minimalist sandals and a cute bag and you’re ready for a day in the sun.

We love a tonal look. This casual-cool look is perfect for everything from backyard barbecues to a day by the pool.

Pretty accessories can make an outfit. While this is slightly over the $300 budget it’s so worth the extra $6 because the chic shoulder bag and sneakers (in the prettiest dusty pink and purple hues) will earn you all the compliments.

A flattering tank top will be your go-to throughout summer. Pair a crisp white one with casual knee-length sweat shorts (these ones below are WWW best-sellers) and cool kicks. A little gold jewelry is the perfect finishing touch.

A versatile romper is the perfect no-think option when you need a summer-ready outfit that is cool without trying. Play up the summer accessories such as trending flatforms and a basket bag to add interest to the look.

Up next, I’m Nordstrom’s fashion editor—these are the under-$150 items you won’t regret.
