To inspire your next fall outfit, check out this impromptu photo shoot created by our homegirl Morgan Dillon at Studio N. Morgan is a stylist we trust and right now she’s crazy about leather and wool–at the same dang time. Fall textures, for sure.
We’re feeling Morgan’s outfits this combination of materials and feels.
Maybe we’re reaching, but isn’t there something physically uplifting about wearing fuzzy wool and buttery leather? Like gaining new muscles.
Shop outfit 1: Kent and Curwen jacket | BOSS pants | S. N. S. Herning sweater | Cole Haan boot

There are a billion and one things to know about denim, but at this exact moment you only need to know two:
1) Slim fit is the new normal.
Don’t worry, wearing slim-fit jeans does not mean having an awful time trying to get your keys into/out of your pocket. It means you’re living in modern times.
2) Owning jeans in various washes is the move.
If you care about coordinating with your shoes and the rest of what you’re wearing, you’ll need a few pairs of jeans in different colors. Five washes for you to consider: black, distressed, grey, vintage inspired and dark wash.
Check out the murdered-out fit above and, below, four more ensembles to inspire you to master each category.
Shop: cold weather Chuck Taylors | DIESEL hoodie | BLK DNM t-shirt | J Brand jeans

The talent pool is deep over at Studio N, a warehouse space close to our Seattle headquarters where Nordstrom employees–stylists, art directors, photographers, tailors and hair & makeup artists–create imagery for our catalog and website. They do this amongst racks of choice product and models posing like perfect 10s. An inspiring environment.
Frequently they complete their day’s work and then create some more.
Photographer Matthew Sumi explains the impromptu photo shoot which yielded these shots:
“We shot a full day of men’s Anniversary looks on Tarik, then we decided to shoot more editorial images outside with this suit. I test often with all the models that come through the studio, to keep fresh and push myself artistically to always create new imagery. On this shoot I was playing with movement and black & white, specifically blur and focus. I’ve always loved trying different techniques. I think movement creates a strong visual element of mood. “
