There’s nothing better than a quiet weekend afternoon spent shopping online in your Sunday best (i.e. a cozy pair of pajamas) while sipping a cup of tea and relaxing at home. That said, one frustration we’ve come across in our many hours of online retail therapy is the overwhelming amount of new arrivals to sift through. There are so many options, in fact, that we often find ourselves closing out and opting for a more specific search. To help get rid of that annoyance, we’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite new items from three of the top women’s clothing retailers — Nordstrom, J.Crew and Madewell. Read on to be the first to rock these styles!
What’s New at Nordstrom
Although Nordstrom is our favorite go-to department store, navigating their vast selection of online apparel can be exhausting, especially if you don’t have a specific style in mind. Here, we’ve pulled together five of the items that our eyes were immediately drawn to. Whether it be a fashion-forward mule or a funky legging that might actually get us excited to hit the gym, these are the new Nordstrom items we’re loving.
How down-right gorgeous are these blue heeled mules?! We love the blue shade (they’re also available in red and some neutral hues) and the gold buckle detailing. These are perfect for finishing off winter and stepping into spring in style! This white and pink striped blouse is also a great transition piece. Our favorite aspect of this top is how versatile it is. Pair it with white, black or any wash of blue denim, a skirt or shorts. It can be dressed up with a pair of neutral heels or made casual with some light-wash denim and sneakers. Top it off with this on-trend tortoise shell statement necklace, and you’re officially a fashionista!
We are also loving these color block leggings both for how they look and the quality they offer. And this long sleeve black mini dress, complete with a tortoise shell detail, is fun and flattering. If you’re not-so-comfortable in a shorter dress, wear this one with some black tights. You’ll look ultra-chic and timeless.
What’s New at J. Crew
Similar to Nordstrom, shopping J.Crew online can be overwhelming. There are so many styles to choose from and, specifically for J.Crew, it can be difficult to know how each piece will look on your personal body type. Here, we’re showing you five pieces that will flatter any form and are essential for transition weather.
This blue and white striped blouse is the ideal top for this time of year. It is conservative enough to keep you covered while being light enough to comfortably layer. Plus it works well both in and out of the office. This leopard print cardigan is another fantastic transitional piece. (See how we view leopard print as the “fashionista’s neutral” here.)
We are totally swooning over this retro wrap dress! The pattern is fun and unique, the cut is classic and flattering, and the length is comfortable and on-trend. These simple flats will match with literally anything in your closet while adding at touch of feminine sophistication to the look and these light wash jeans, complete with trendy front buttons and a frayed hem, are perfect for finishing winter and welcoming spring.
What’s New at Madewell
We like to consider Madewell the trendsetting retailer for professional millenials. Their styles are young, fresh and fun while being conservative, high quality and, more often than not, timeless. Here, we’ve focused on five accent or accessory pieces that will bring color and function into your everyday wardrobe.
The best time to wear a striped sweater is right now! This option is sweet, soft and just right for cozying up as winter comes to a close. This simple crossbody bag, available in other shades, is beyond easy-to-style and useful any time of year as are these tan clogs. With just the right heel height, these will dress up any look while remaining super comfortable. This pink oversized denim jacket is the statement item the fashionistas will be adding to their closet this season. It is fun and funky and reflects one of the season’s hottest colors, and these geometric earrings (one of the biggest trends of the year!) are the perfect fashion-forward accessory to doll up an outfit.
