I’m a lifestyle editor, and these 27 April Nordstrom new arrivals are already in my cart

As a professional online shopper (yes, I love my job), I can definitively say that I am great at shopping. I can sniff out a good deal from miles away and tend to have roughly 728 products in my cart at any given time. So, let me help you build your online shopping cart. Whether you’re shopping for major sale events like Prime Day or just upgrading your wardrobe, I’ll always give you the must-have picks.

Every April, I have to remind myself that it’s still not summer. In a perfect world, I’d jump right into shopping for swimsuits, flowy sundresses and wicker bags — but it’s not a perfect world, and sometimes April hits us with that disgusting surprise cold front. As a Band-Aid to this unfortunate problem, I use April to shop for both spring and summer clothes. My hack? Mindfully scroll through the Nordstrom new arrivals tab.

From sweater dresses to my forever favorite lip liner and a beaded shoulder bag that even the grumpiest of grumps will love, peep 27 editor-approved April Nordstrom new arrivals that I can’t stop thinking about.

The Favorite Daughter The Favorite Pant Pleat Pants, $228

A pair of green wide-leg pleated pants sounds like a great idea.

Treasure & Bond Rib Sweater Tank, $35

How good would this simple, classic sweater tank look with the green pants above? SO good.

ASOS DESIGN Geo Print Camp Shirt, $35

The bold print on this menswear-inspired button-down shirt is so fun for spring and summer.

Free People Liv Penny Loafer, $128

Can you believe that I don’t have any brown loafers? Time to change that with these classic penny loafers from Free People.

OSEA Golden Glow Body Trio Set (Limited Edition), $88 ($134 value)

Credit: Nordstrom

It’s the summer of body care! While I don’t actually have proof that dry brushes actually do anything, I’m still super excited to try it out with the body oil and balm from TikTok-favorite brand OSEA.

French Connection Nellis Sleeveless Cotton Sweater Dress, $98

The dainty scallops and pointelle stitching duo is absolutely genius. I love how this midi dress is styled with the brown belt, but it would also look just as good without it.

Tory Burch Kira Slingback Sport Platform Sandal, $278

Credit: Nordstrom

I feel like a baby seeing something shiny for the very first time because I cannot stop staring at the glossy gold-tone hardware of these Tory Burch sandals.

Madewell Baggy Straight Jeans in Garment Wash, $98

Just give me all of the colorful denim for summer, thank you!

HOKA Bondi 8 Running Shoe, $165

Credit: Nordstrom

I can no longer escape the HOKA life and have finally purchased a pair of my very own. I recently fractured my ankle and my orthopedist said these were one of the best sneakers to wear while walking as I build up my strength.

Béis The Cosmetics Case, $68

Credit: Nordstrom

This Béis toiletries bag is super popular for a reason, but the new lime green colorway is so pretty that it actually made my jaw drop.

MOTHER The Insider High Waist Step Frayed Hem Crop Bootcut Jeans, $228

Credit: Nordstrom

MOTHER is mothering in the best way with this pair of cropped frayed hem jeans.

New Era Unisex New Era Gray New York Knicks Vintage Throwback Crew Sweatshirt, $79.99

Credit: Nordstrom

My beloved New York Knicks are in the NBA playoffs — and this time feels different. As a lifelong fan, I’ve collected my fair share of merch over the last 28 years, but I don’t have anything like this classic vintage Knicks sweatshirt.

BaubleBar New York Knicks Team Chain Necklace, $58

Speaking of new Knicks merch, I’m also obsessed with this delicate gold necklace. Anyways, #NewYorkForever.

AllSaints Leather Crossbody Bag, $219

Credit: Nordstrom

I love that the shoulder bag trend is slowly transitioning into the crossbody bag trend. This black AllSaints bag is the perfect way to bring it back.

ASOS DESIGN Wide Leg Dad Trousers, $42

Credit: Nordstrom

A pair of white wide-leg pants is key from April through, well, pretty much whenever.

Dingo Out West Cowboy Boot, $164.95

Brown cowboy boots for spring and summer? How very Daisy Jones of me.

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Robe, $99

For a variety of reasons, I have had a very difficult year. All I want to do is take a mental health week and wrap myself up in this robe. Yes, this sounds like a very, very good idea.

Jeffrey Campbell Bubblegum Platform Sandal, $44.95

Credit: Nordstrom

If you want to be a real Y2K girly, then you need a pair of summer shoes that are directly inspired by jelly shoes.

HOUSE OF CB Carmen Floral Bustier Sundress, $225

Credit: Nordstrom

This gorgeous feminine midi dress from HOUSE OF CB is everything to me.

Open Edit Oversize Linen Blend Blazer, $79

Credit: Nordstrom

When it comes to summer workwear, linen is that girl. Brown is also super trendy right now, and this linen blazer is perfect for the office or as a going-out look styled with just a bra underneath.

STAUD Tommy Beaded Shoulder Bag, $295

Credit: Nordstrom

Words cannot describe how happy this joyful beaded shoulder bag makes me feel.

Open Edit Strapless Maxi Sweater Dress, $79

Credit: Nordstrom

Ooh, this strapless sweater dress is the perfect transitional piece. I can style it with a leather jacket and boots for colder spring weather and wear it with slides all summer long.

Good American Good Waist High Shine Compression Leggings, $120

Credit: Nordstrom

If trends are as cyclical as they say, then I think the skinny high-waist disco pants of the 2010s are coming back, and we all should be celebrating. Good American also makes super comfortable denim, and these stretchy leggings are sure to be just as good (no pun intended).

ASOS DESIGN EDITION Broderie Anglaise Off the Shoulder Tiered Dress, $225

Credit: Nordstrom

I just got engaged and am attempting to fill out a bridal wardrobe, which has honestly been hard! It’s super important for me to find pieces that match my normal style so I still look like myself, and this white dress from ASOS is perfect.

Quay Australia Narrow Down 37mm Polarized Cat Eye Sunglasses, $85

Credit: Nordstrom

Speaking of amping up my bridal wardrobe, how cute are these cream-colored Quay sunglasses? Also, I was today years old when I found out it was actually pronounced “key” — does that make me a bad lifestyle editor? Probably.

Reformation Sky Silk Top, $148

Credit: Nordstrom

Reformation always has the chicest zhuzhed-up wardrobe essentials.

Kyle Cosmetics Lip Liner, $14

Credit: Nordstrom

I know we generally left Kylie Cosmetics back in 2016 with every other viral matte lipstick, but I still have not found a better lip liner. Try it, and you’ll see what I mean.
