As much as I love to try my hand at one of the many trends we write about at Who What Wear, at the end of the day, I’m an elevated-basics girl through and through. I live for straight-leg denim, crisp white T-shirts, and slouchy blazers that transform any outfit into something a bit more special. It’s not boring—it’s just classic. If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe to a no-think chic capsule collection, you’ve come to the right place.
Although elevated basics rely heavily on their simple colors and timeless silhouettes for wearability, there’s nothing wrong with pairing them with trend-forward pieces to make them feel a bit fresher. Now that spring is around the corner and I’m embracing the warmer weather, I’m itching to wear things that are beyond effortless. Thankfully, Nordstrom came in clutch, delivering tons of expensive-looking style inspiration I was able to add to my closet without having to pay designer-name prices.
Ahead are all of the Nordstrom elevated basics I’m eyeing to wear this spring and beyond.
