Let’s talk wardrobe basics. While I’m not necessarily a fan of the capsule wardrobe—they can feel limiting—I am a fan of keeping a few pieces in constant rotation and updating them when necessary. These are the items I go back to when I don’t know what to wear, and as with anything, they’re always better when bought on-sale. That’s why I’m taking stock of my wardrobe and using Nordstrom’s Winter Sale to refresh my wardrobe ahead of the new season. 

Call it spring cleaning, but I’m in a very “out with the old, in with the new” mindset these days. After a long winter of relying on my cashmere sweaters and black jeans, I’ve got my eye on essentials for the tricky transition into spring: lighter sweaters, trench coats, and a fresh pair of cool white sneakers (to replace the dirty pair sitting in my bedroom). Nordstrom has them all in the Winter Sale, which runs from February 8 through February 15. You can score up to 50 percent off on a wide range of pieces and beauty products during this time. 

Ahead, I’ve rounded up 20 deals that can bring new life to any wardrobe. Are these going to be the most exciting options in your closet? Maybe not. Are they the ones that you’re going to rely on day in and day out? Absolutely. Keep scrolling to shop the best light-wash jeans, striped sweaters, SKIMS bodysuits, and more essentials to take you from winter to spring.
