You know spring has sprung when the sidewalks are dotted with a handful of new style staples you can’t wait to sport — those particular pieces that have the ability to elevate your look to fashion's upper echelons. Problem is, all those beautiful frocks dipped in soothing pastel hues and swoon-worthy accessories seem to come with alarmingly red price tags to match. But believe it or not, updating your look this season doesn’t have to mean setting yourself back a month’s rent.
Because of Nordstrom’s affordably trendy pieces this spring, it’s actually possible to own an of-the-moment wardrobe without bankrupting yourself in the process. Plus, their versatility will have you reaching for them for seasons to come. Whether you’re looking for comfy boyfriend jeans for your next sunny afternoon adventure in the park or a lightweight, loose-fitting sundress for all those brunches you’ll be taking outdoors, these spring staples will have you excited to give your closet a fresh start.
Add Edge To Spring Sweaters With Scribble Jeans
Shop Diana's look, featuring Topshop and BP., at Nordstrom.
Start spring strong with a colorful ribbed sweater that's perfect for transitional temps, while scribbled-on jeans bring a little rebel vibe to that low-key lunch with friends. Wherever your spring schedule may take you, topping your look off with a fuzzy set of slides ensures you're feeling comfy and looking cute, no matter what.
Channel Vintage Vibes In A Comfy-Cool Dress
Shop Allison's look, featuring Topshop, Madewell, BP., and Steve Madden, at Nordstrom.
Take a page from the '60s and '70s style handbooks with an embroidered pinafore dress that's one part sweet, one part tough, and all parts cool. Its relaxed fit makes layering a breeze (an important quality for spring's fast-changing weather), and a simple black choker with cozy pink flats tie the look together.
Land Stellar Style Using Metallic Statement Pieces
Shop Sophie's look, featuring Topshop and Steve Madden, at Nordstrom.
Take your denim style game to intergalactic levels with a metallic silver mini that stands out anywhere — from a sunset concert in the park to a night on the dance floor. Or, bring the stellar number back down to earth with a ruffled pink sweater that keeps the look modern but laid-back. Slip-on sneaks with fuzzy accents add a touch of whimsy.
Stay On-Trend In Playful Tulle & Velvet
Shop Allison's look, featuring Brandy Melville, Topshop, and Steve Madden, at Nordstrom.
What's a spring wardrobe without a little tulle? A playful skirt is the ideal match for a sunny stroll in the garden, and dark details like a spaghetti strap tank and metallic platforms balance the outfit, keeping your look edgy, on-trend, and anything but predictable.
Bring Spring To The Office In Edgy Sheer Layers
Shop Sophie's look, featuring Chelsea28, BP., and Treasure&Bond, at Nordstrom.
Putting a little spring in your step's no easy feat when you're heading to work — but see-through layers and statement accessories help you get there. A dark sheer top adds sophistication to distressed boyfriend jeans, and a mini backpack with heeled mules will make you want to get up and go.
