Summer fashion is all about embracing the adventurous and exciting side of style, and the trends for the upcoming season are no exception. From vibrant colors to daring cuts and nostalgic accents, there’s something for everyone. The best part is that you don’t have to blow your budget to achieve an expensive and high-end look. I can always count on Nordstrom to offer a range of affordable summer styles that exude luxury without the hefty price tag. Whether you want to embrace the breezy elegance of linen, intricate charm of crochet, or the polished vibe of suits, Nordstrom’s affordable options allow you to find the perfect outfit that speaks to your style aesthetic. Below, I pulled together my personal favorites that are $150 and below.

Maxi Dresses

If there’s one piece that’s perfect for the warm weather, it’s obviously dresses. Instead of sticking to the traditional mini or midi length, opt for a floor-grazing cut to achieve that effortless, laidback vibe. I love this sheer style because you can wear it as a cover-up or style it with a slip for a night out. This one is also great for everyday wear.

Short & Skirt Suits

The evolution of matching sets continues with exciting new variations. Long gone are basic pant suits – and in its place are short and skirt suits. Miniskirts and tailored shorts are becoming modern classics that offer endless possibilities for stylish ensembles. I’m loving everything from tweed two-pieces to vests.

Statement Tops

Statement tops are my secret weapon in transforming basic jeans into an expensive-looking ensemble. They have the power to elevate any outfit with their eye-catching details. My favorite tops of the season include corset tops, which add a touch of romance to your look, and halter necklines as an elegant way to show some skin.

Get ready to channel the 70’s in style with luxurious crochet pieces. The retro trend is taking the spotlight with its airy and open weave knit. Spanning across dresses and skirts to tops, this nostalgic fabric adds a touch of bohemian charm to any outfit. While they make perfect cover-ups for your vacation, don’t limit them to just beach days. Crochet pieces can be effortlessly styled for everyday wear with their breezy construction.

Linen is a fabric that effortlessly exudes an air of sophistication and luxury. Its natural, textured appearance and breathability make it a timeless choice for elevated summer fashion. Whether it’s a linen blouse, dress, or pants, this fabric drapes beautifully and lends a refined aesthetic to your look. Nordstrom has tons of linen pieces at your fingertips right now.
