I recently discovered 1.STATE while perusing through Nordstrom. This contemporary sportswear collection sold exclusively at Nordstrom is modern, chic, and sleek. Their pieces have great structure and the quality is top notch. I achieved the perfect modern summer look by pairing their Print Shorts with their Seamed Split Back Shell. You can never have too many basic black tops, but what’s unique about this one is the graceful split-back hem. It gives an element of surprise. The silky soft shorts come in a chic geo print and have a great structured look. 1.STATE has a great variety of the most perfect basics and unique architecturally inspired pieces. Check out their full collection here and here.
