“Asking for a Friend” is our advice series that seeks to solve all manner of fashion predicaments with the help of our smart and stylish Nordstrom colleagues.
Mom was our original style icon. Thoughtful children that we are, we decided to mark this Mother’s Day by exploring some very nonmaternal ways to rock the high-waist denim styles (aka “mom jeans”) that are seeing a resurgence right now. To successfully do so, we tapped our friend and Nordstrom stylist Keara Matthiesen, as well as our gorgeous coworker Ribicca Mamuye, a full-time Nordstrom merchandising analyst and part-time blogger/model. Ribicca put Keara’s advice into practice in front of the camera, and this team effort produced spring outfits that would make our matriarchs proud.
The question: how to wear the mom-jean style without looking like you’re on carpool duty or carrying baggies of Cheerios?
The advice giver: Nordstrom Stylist Keara Matthiesen.
The solution: streamline your outfit with tucked-in shirts or flowing dresses (yes, dresses), then add a funky flourish.
