Uncompromising Style with Actor and Singer Taye Diggs

He’s known as an incredibly versatile actor, but Taye Diggs can also sing with the best of the stars on Broadway, which is probably why he’s so busy—he’s just too dang talented. He told us when you’re constantly booked, you don’t have time to shop at a bunch of different stores. Makes sense. We’re honored to be his one-stop destination.

What do you love about the Nordstrom “one-of-a-kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

Well, I just like to shop, period. Right now, it’s the changing seasons. So, loading up on all the fall stuff is exciting.

Dark Fabrics and Uncommon Varietals with Winemaker Andrew Latta

If you’re a winemaker, there’s logic behind wearing a uniform of mostly black. If you’re a winemaker like Seattle’s Andrew Latta—who is more interested in having a hand in every step of the process than running a high-volume production winery—this is especially true. The nuts and bolts of making wine are often messy and unglamorous, and red wine pairs better with dark fabrics.

Listening to A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean While Shopping for Raf Simons, A.P.C. and Gucci

Rappers joining forces with fashion brands: a tale as old as time? Well, it’s definitely a going concern. The fusion between the two is in full effect at the moment.

Perhaps you’ve heard: A$AP Rocky’s new song “RAF” repeatedly references Raf Simons, the legendary Belgian designer. Simons is named in each verse by Rocky and his guest stars Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert and Frank Ocean. You can listen to the song on episode 006 of blonded RADIO, Ocean’s show on Apple Music / beats 1—or enjoy one of the YouTube rips available at the moment. Check out our adidas by Raf Simons collection below.

Asking for a Friend: How to Keep White Sneakers White?

How to Keep White Sneakers White

Our stylists love to recommend white sneakers because they go with everything. And they do. Whether you’re dressing up or dressing down, please believe there is a white sneaker for you.

Once you find it, you will need to decide: is this a sneaker that looks good slightly dirty? Because yes, that’s a thing—some of the coolest sneakers out right now look filthy. 

But if you answered “no,” that’s completely normal. And perhaps you’ll want to know: How should I keep my white sneakers white?

Two words for you: Jason Markk.

That’s the brand name of the shoe cleaner you need, made by Jason M. Angsuvarn, whose company is the first name in the pursuit of spotless sneakers. Check out the videos below to see how to use Jason Markk to clean your white sneakers.

Asking for a Friend: Can You Mix Golf Clothes Into Your Regular Wardrobe?

We get this question all the time: Can I wear my golf clothes after I’m done golfing? The answer is yes. Golf apparel can indeed be liberated from the course.

All it takes is a little mixing and matching. There are no hard rules, although we don’t recommend rocking head-to-toe golf gear in the real world. Blend in one or two pieces at a time, however, and you’ll be good.

To show how you might approach this mix, we called on the photography skills of Nordstrom Senior Content Producer Thig Gishuru, who in turn called on Cole DeLeon for modeling. They’re friends who share a second life: Thig is Cole’s older brother in the Seattle rap world, Thig being in the group the Physics, Cole in Brothers from Another. So this shoot had a little of that energy.

We caught up with Cole afterward to talk about hanging out with your heroes, dressing differently as you get older—and the joy of golf even when you’re awful.

Unisex Spring Style with Stutterheim and Rick Owens

Spring is here and days are full of sunshine and rain. One way to dress for that kind of crazy weather variance is to combine thin waterproof jackets, loose pants and high-tops. With your jacket on or off and you’re ready for anything.

No-Rules Spring Style

Allow us to guide you through key rule-breaking trends this season: throwback ’90s style, playing with proportion, and layering colors and patterns.

Consider the new trouser, above. There’s a Dockers dad vibe with those pleats. But mixed with a ’90s skateboarding influence that translates to a looser, cropped silhouette, the trouser is reborn.
