I am the epitome of a basics dresser. Yes, I love a statement piece, but I rely on my wardrobe staples to get me through the seasons ahead. Every now and again, those foundational pieces need updating—and I’m currently going through that period. Since the staples in my closet look a little worse for wear, I’m turning to Nordstrom’s Spring Sale to replace the basics that need an overhaul.

While I am certifiably anti-capsule wardrobe, I understand the importance of having a collection of wear-everywhere pieces in my closet at any given time. Finding items like a great pair of jeans, a perfect trench coat, and a lightweight spring sweater are the fundamentals of any stylish working person’s closet, and it’s high time you, too, treated yourself to something new after wearing the same cashmere knit since October. Give your shoe collection a refresh, too, with a new pair of white sneakers and ballet flats that are comfortable for day-to-night wear.

Nordstrom’s Spring Sale is running from March 21 through to April 2. As your local shopping editor, I took it upon myself to do the hard work for you and browse through thousands of pieces to come up with the best selection for you to shop now.
