When I was studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising before joining the team of talented editors at Who What Wear, I also worked as a stylist for Nordstrom. I have been interested in fashion ever since I was young, but I credit the start of my obsession with contemporary and luxury designer brands to my first days working at Nordstrom wandering around the sales floor mentally creating my dream wardrobe. While I have moved on to other professional endeavors, Nordstrom has always held a special place in my heart and is a retailer I shop at nonstop.
One of my favorite things about shopping at Nordstrom is I can find everything I’m looking for, from great designer pieces to affordable picks that look just as chic. Lately, my summer has been filled with planning weekends away, destination vacations, and celebratory events—all of which I need great swimwear, accessories, shoes, and dresses for. Naturally, Nordstrom was my first stop. I rounded up 29 affordable items that could easily pass for designer.
