Last week saw the opening of Nordstrom’s biggest flagship store in new york gal —spanning over seven floors of the Central Park Tower in Midtown Manhattan and featuring 320,000 square feet of the chicest clothing, accessories, shoes, and beauty products from practically every major designer under the sun. Suffice to say I had to see the sartorial wonderland for myself!
Thanks to Nordstrom’s long-term partnership with Alaska Airlines, the airline flew me and a select number of guests on a seriously incredible, cushy, and fun charter flight from L.A. to NYC for the grand opening. Fashion-obsessed New Yorkers and celebrities (Anna Wintour, Katie Holmes, and Karlie Kloss, to name a few) showed up in droves to see and shop the beautifully curated store with its concept shops exclusive to NYC, such as the Nordstrom x Nike boutique, the Nordstrom Beauty Haven, and the Burberry x Nordstrom curated collection.
There's no doubt I had a close eye on the pieces NYC girls were eyeing, trying, and buying in abundance at the store—and naturally, I tried them for myself. With the cooler East Coast temps, it’s not surprising plush jackets, coats, and sweaters were a big hit, along with of-the-moment pleated skirts, and effortless long-sleeve dresses. Scroll below to see the popular pieces I tried at Nordstrom’s flagship store that NYC girls are loving right now.
A favorite among the street style set at NYFW, New Yorkers can't get enough of the clean and contemporary silhouettes of Nanushka's pieces. This luxe shirt jacket was getting plenty of attention for its gorgeous lilac hue and its unique details. It's an investment piece that'll invite major compliments.
I'm still floored at how luxuriously soft this cozy sweater feels for its $75 price tag. It has a beautiful relaxed fit and a chic mock neck that is perfect to wear with tailored trousers for work and skinny jeans on the weekends.
A pleated skirt is a must in every New Yorker's closet right now—super chic for work when paired with tall boots. This one in particular is made of faux leather, which makes it look and feel super expensive. It also happens to be from New Yorker @blaireadiebee's exclusive collaboration with Nordstrom's in-house brand, Halogen.
