We're Fashion Girls in Our 30s, and Here's What We're Buying at Nordstrom

·5 min read

As you may well know, we’re big fans of Nordstrom over here at Who What Wear. We cover everything from its epic sales to its must-have new arrivals and the seasonal trends you can scoop up from the multi-brand retailer.

As a fashion editor in my 30s, I definitely have specific items I gravitate toward when shopping at Nordstrom (read: blazers, button-downs, tank tops, and tees). I was curious to see what other fashion girls in their 30s are buying from the trusty retailer, so I tapped into my fashion-forward 30-something colleagues and had them share the must-have items they love to buy and are currently eyeing right now from Nordstrom.

If you’re in your 30s or simply want some Nordstrom shopping inspo, keep scrolling below to take a peek at what Who What Wear’s fashion set in their 30s are buying right now.

Levi's 501 Ripped Straight Leg Jeans ($108)

"I'm such a jeans person, and Nordstrom has an excellent selection from tons of brands."

Ray-Ban 50mm Wayfarer Sunglasses ($100)

"Random fun fact: Nordstrom has so many sunglasses. You can get a $15 pair or a $400 pair all in one place. When in doubt, go for Ray-Ban Wayfarers. They look good on literally everyone."

Open Edit Boxy Crop T-Shirt ($19)

"I'm sure you're already aware, but Nordstrom has so many good basics. I love its new in-house brand Open Edit, which is responsible for this perfect boxy T-shirt."

Nike Waffle One Sneaker ($100)

"Nike's shoe selection is incredible, but it's the sneaker inventory that really gets me. It always has the latest styles and is great about restocking the popular ones when they sell out."

Jacquemus Le Gilet Noue Twisted Linen Blend Crop Cardigan ($400)

"I'm already thinking about transitional pieces that I can wear now but also once we hit fall."

Topshop Dani Straight Leg Trousers ($75)

"It's a big yes to these slouchy trousers."

Saint Laurent Metal Toe Blade Slingback Pump ($795)

"I recently ordered these heels from Saint Laurent, and they're already winning out as my new favorite shoes."

Open Edit Ribbed Button-Up Cardigan ($39)

"Yep, knit matching sets are going to be trending this fall."

Shop the matching Ribbed High Waist Pant ($30).

Open Edit Blazer ($75)

"I've definitely leaned into chic blazers in my 30s. Nordstrom always has a great selection—I'm particularly partial to a relaxed silhouette."

Vince Ribbed Body-Con Dress ($117)

"A versatile black dress I can dress up or down is a must in my closet at this stage."

Open Edit Jagger Kitten Heel Sandal ($40)

"These kitten-heel sandals are perfect when I want to feel polished and chic yet comfortable."

4th & Reckless Heaton Stripe Button-Up Shirt ($48)

"Relaxed button-downs are my go-to, and this one from 4th & Reckless is one of my favorites right now. I always make a beeline to the brand when I'm on Nordstrom's site. It has a nice selection of elevated yet affordable basics."

Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee ($19.5)

"I've lost track at how many Madewell tees and tanks I've bought from Nordstrom. They're the best staples."

BP Crop Ribbed Tank ($10)

"If there's one thing I buy more than anything at Nordstrom, it's tank tops. It has a great range of silhouettes and price points to suit every budget."

Éliou Lotte Choker ($145)

"Dare you to find me vintage-inspired gold jewelry that I can't justify buying."

Good American Always Fits One-Piece Swimsuit ($89)

"I've been crushing on ribbed swimwear for a few summers now, and it's not showing any signs of slowing down."

Ganni Comfort Stretch High Waist Straight Leg Jeans ($185)

"I'm in a committed relationship with high-waisted denim."

Prada Logo Platform Loafer Mule ($875)

"In terms of investment pieces, practical footwear is a no-brainer. These are the perfect shoes for between seasons."

Zella One for All Crewneck Sweatshirt ($45)

"Crew-neck sweatshirts from the men's section. I'm telling you."

Tory Burch Gingham Linen Blazer ($498)

"A structured, statement blazer is always going to get a yes from me. Before the start of a new season, I like to invest in one special blazer to style with a number of outfits and extend the longevity of my wardrobe."

Khaite High Waist Crop Jeans ($380)

No skinny jeans here! Love the wash on this high-waisted pair.”

Prada Triangle Logo Loafer ($925)

"Like a blazer, having a statement (but still classic) shoe I can wear with at least five different outfits is essential."

Vince Crushed V-Neck Sleeveless Jumpsuit ($395)

"Jumpsuits are a staple in my wardrobe. I've always had a thing for them, but our relationship has blossomed over the last year. I love the crushed, crinkle material of this one and can see myself wearing it with a denim jacket, chunky platform sandals, and a red lip."

Ganni Floral Print Mesh Turtleneck Top ($135)

"I love second-skin tops, especially in fun prints. They just add that cool factor to every outfit. Pop one on under a slip dress or layered with a sweater, and you're bound to get compliments."

Ganni Summer Suiting Trousers ($345)

"For most of my life, my bottoms of choice were jeans. But as I've gotten older—and living through a global pandemic!—nothing sounds less appealing than wearing tight denim all day long. That's why I've gotten into trousers. They're always chic and make me feel pulled together but more importantly are comfortable."
