At the beginning of each spring season, I often rummage through my closet to identify which clothes and accessories no longer serve me. My rule of thumb? If I haven't worn an item in over a year, it goes straight into the donation pile. This year, I went overboard with my spring cleaning agenda, and I'm now left with bare hangers and empty drawers. So, I've refilled my closet space with spring staples that will fit perfectly into my capsule wardrobe. I turned to Nordstrom's new arrivals section on a time-sensitive fashion mission.

I can always count on Nordstrom to provide a curated edit of the classics I want to keep. While scrolling through the retailer's exciting selection of fresh products, I began feverishly adding countless items to my online shopping cart. The next thing I knew, I had amassed a variety of essentials that I'll be styling into my spring work outfits—from sharp white button-downs to structured denim pants to springy neutral-toned footwear.

If you're anything like me, and perfecting your capsule wardrobe is high on your priority list, you've come to the right place. Nordstrom's new arrivals are plentiful—I'm talking hundreds of products.

Ahead, I've hand-selected 21 investment-worthy finds, some that have been on my wishlist, that will carry you through this spring season and beyond. My fashion sixth sense tells me that these new pieces will sell out quickly, so do yourself a favor and get a head start.
