Five Women Share the Best Thing They’ve Gotten in a Trunk

In case you need a little inspo for your next Trunk.

If you’re new to Nordstrom Trunk Club, you might still be wondering what to request in your first Trunk. Since we can dress you for pretty much anything, from lounging at home to your daily workouts to special occasions, there are a lot of options. To help inspire you, we collected some Nordstrom Trunk Club reviews from our social media followers who shared the best things they’ve received in their Trunks. Read on for their stories and to see looks inspired by their favorite Nordstrom Trunk Club pieces.

“Best jeans for petites”

We carry a broad range of petite, plus, and maternity sizes, and our stylists love helping people of all body types find their best fit. One petite customer wrote of her experience receiving some right-on essentials. “Found the cutest, comfiest bodysuit and best jeans for petites. Fit like a glove and no alterations needed,” she said. (Although, for the record, we do have the nation’s largest alterations team if you ever need it.)

Some of our favorite denim brands for petites include Wit & Wisdom, Good American, Topshop, and Paige. This straight-leg pair by Frame has a slightly roomy silhouette that nicely balances a form-fitted bodysuit. Finish with statement sunglasses and neutral sandals for a trend-forward summer look.

“Love my new sports bra”

Since most people have been spending their time at home lately, our stylists have been on top of their loungewear, athleisure, and activewear game. We recently had one customer who needed all of the above. “I asked for comfy, stylish, athletic, and loungewear items since I’m working out from home,” she shared. “Nordstrom Trunk Club and my stylist totally delivered. Love my new Zella sports bra and Adidas sneakers (two of several items I kept from my Trunk) paired with rose-colored Zella leggings that I already owned.” Yes, we can not only send new pieces but also help style your existing favorites.

If you’re not familiar, Zella activewear is a Nordstrom Made brand that’s as inspired by function as it is by fashion trends. We love mixing and matching their gear with other tried-and-true athletic brands like Adidas and Alo. Try a pop-color bra with metallic leggings and sleek running shoes.

“My first jean jacket”

If you don’t have a denim jacket, get one. If you do have one, get another one in a different wash. We can’t have enough of them in our rotation. And now we have a new customer who agrees with us. “Super excited about [some] additions to my wardrobe, which came from my first time using #trunkclub. My first jean jacket, at least as an adult. I’m hoping it will be a great addition to my style!”

You can wear a denim jacket with anything, really, short of a ball gown. (Though we suspect Rihanna could find a way to make that work.) For summer, we love one as a casual layer over a sundress. Paired with heeled sandals and craft earrings, it’s a combo that’s perfect for alfresco outings.

“I liked everything in this box”

“I am shook. I have never received a box this good before! My stylist outdid herself this month,” said one woman who has really learned how to work the process. “I gave [the stylist] a lot of feedback and when I got the preview for this Trunk I was super happy.” It’s true that customer feedback is what really makes our personal styling experience work. The more you share with our stylists about what you like, and perhaps more importantly, what you don’t, the better and better your Trunks will get.

A classic pair of Vans slip-ons made her do “the happy dance” along with AG’s Ex-Boyfriend jeans. “Basically I liked everything in the box, which is a problem,” she said. We have no problem pairing these two essentials with something unexpected, like an ultra-feminine top with ruffles and a bow waist. Complete the look with a designer bag for ultimate polish.

“These pants are so comfortable”

Perhaps our favorite quality of any garment is versatility. Taking a single piece and showing how to style it multiple ways is something we do often. (Here are five ways to wear leggings, for example.) “I got these Zella paper bag pants this week in my Nordstrom Trunk Club box and they are so comfortable,” said a customer who experimented with wearing her new pants in different ways. “More of an athletic feel but can be dressed up or down for errands or lounging around the house.”

Tailored joggers can easily be worn with other athleisure pieces like sweatshirts and sneakers. But for a modern, street-style vibe, try them with a pastel sweater tank, platform sandals, and a graphic crossbody bag.
