If I could only pick a few items for my capsule wardrobe, I would happily do so. The concept of curating a capsule wardrobe isn’t new, but if the last few years (and the recent emphasis on more sustainable fashion) are anything to go by, you’re better off investing in a few foundational pieces rather than packing your closet full to the brim. So as spring finally decides to make its presence known, I’ve taken it upon myself to search for clothes and accessories that’ll add to my overall aesthetic—this is where Nordstrom really came through.

Nordstrom collates all the products needed for every season on its site, but what I love the most is its emphasis on cult finds and, most importantly, sustainable finds. This makes it that much easier to find those essentials that’ll stay with me long after the season is over. 

Whether I’m searching for the ultimate white sneaker or a dress that works for both day and night, I come back to Nordstrom time and time again to get my sartorial fix. Below, I’ve picked 15 such pieces just in time for the warmer weather.
