My Friend Is Spending $175 Max on Fall Clothes—I Suggested These Nordstrom Items

·3 min read

My friends often tap me for fashion and shopping ideas. Given my role as a fashion editor, I’m always down to share the latest items I’ve uncovered while doing market research. On that note, one of my dear friends said she has about $175 max to spend on new clothes and wanted a few suggestions on pieces I liked. Given that Nordstrom is her absolute go-to store, I said I’d send over a few pieces from that retailer specifically.

I ended up texting my friend links to four Nordstrom items I thought would really pique her interest. The finds were particularly noteworthy because I thought they were trend-forward but also versatile and could be styled with a range of other items already in her wardrobe. Keep scrolling to check out my curation (the first four items below). If you go further, I rounded up a smattering of other under-$100 Nordstrom items that I thought were chic as well.

Topshop Oversize Cotton Poplin Button-Up Shirt ($56)

Oversize button-up shirts are trending hard at the moment. I told my friend that the silhouette is worth a try to bring a modern spin to a wardrobe.

Open Edit Faux Leather Trousers ($59)

I suggested these faux-leather trousers because they look so high-end and could be dressed up with a blouse and a blazer or down with a tee or knit.

Iets Frans Cable Knit Vest ($44)

Sweater-vests continue to be popular among the fashion crowd, and so are cable knits. So this pick felt like a no-brainer. It can be worn like this or over a long-sleeve tee or blouse.

BP. Aviator Sunglasses ($8)

To complete my edit, I recommended a pair of sunglasses with a light lens for an of-the-moment vibe.
