I am not surprised how many times a European friend has complained to me about the fact that there are no Nordstrom stores abroad. I admit I would do the exact same thing. The selection at Nordstrom is always chic. Plus, there’s always something for every budget and every personal style. At least, Nordy offers international shipping for when they just can’t live without a piece, especially with all the discounted gems on the site right now. You can save up to 60% on thousands of stylish items now through September 12. No discount code needed.
As someone who essentially shops for a living, I can’t help but be curious as to what people from around the globe would buy from some of my favorite stores. Thanks to my aforementioned friends and my Instagram feed that’s full of European outfit inspiration, I have a pretty solid picture of what that might be. For the fashion set in places like Paris and Milan, in particular, it is all about smart blazers, cool jeans, elevated sweaters, classic shoes, and other standout basics.
