I’m a Former Nordstrom Stylist Turned Forever Nordy Shopper—I Love These Basics

Before my days as a fashion editor, I worked as a fashion stylist for Nordstrom. I loved spending time with my favorite brands, getting to see all of the new arrivals in person, and trying on everything we had that came in so I could recommend the best options to my clients. When they would ask me, “What’s the most important thing I need to know about updating my wardrobe?” The answer was always the same: “You need great basics.” 

As an editor, my Nordy loyalty is still just as strong as it was when I was a stylist. And my theory on investing in great basics holds true. On that note, keep scrolling to check out the current basics at Nordstrom that I’m obsessed with at the moment.
