My Friend Was “Over” Her Summer Wardrobe—I Suggested These Cute Nordstrom Items

One of my dear friends routinely uses me as a sounding board for sartorial advice, and given that I work in fashion, I live for it. On that note, while she has a range of go-to summer items she wears often, she recently said that she’s kind of “over” some of her current offerings and wanted a few fresh finds to update her wardrobe. I told her I’d send over a few links of items I’m into at the moment. This time around, I turned to Nordstrom for said items because the assortment is quite strong.

I ended up sending her seven items that I think are particularly noteworthy given their forward yet highly versatile nature. Basically, the pieces in question could easily work within her existing wardrobe. I’m referring to items like oversize shirting and sleek sandals.

Keep scrolling to check out the items I suggested to my friend (aka the first seven below). I also rounded up a bunch of other chic items to consider.
