Every woman has that one piece — or two or three — that she relies on to get through the week. Sometimes they're comfort clothes (that pair of worn-in jeans that somehow never comes off Saturday to Sunday), and sometimes they're luxe (like a pair of leather pants that brings an unexpected edge to office dressing). Which is what makes these pieces so great: No matter how basic or outré a gal's everyday staple, it's always unique and personal.
So, we asked three Refinery29 staffers to pick items from Nordstrom Rack that define their work and weekend styles. From a red cashmere sweater that lays an unexpected foundation, to a spiked necklace that makes a plain, professional sheath sing, check out the styles we look forward to wearing every day of the week.
