From Mom With Love

Designer Sarah Sherman Samuel reveals trusted style tips inspired by her mother and how she makes them her own this Mother’s Day. Tap or hover over each image to explore.

"When I think of my mother's style when I was growing up, I remember cork wedges, a wrap dress in a fun print, and those pink culottes. Her style has always been chic but contemporary."
“If my mom did wear a statement piece like a print dress or a bold jewelry choice, she would let it breathe by keeping the rest of the look clean or neutral, and I find myself doing this as well.”

“I look for structured pieces and interesting shapes—clothing with an architectural quality to it—so that the one piece doesn’t feel too basic. Being a busy mom, I know instant equals easy, so those interesting pieces have become my BFF.”
"My personal favorite is The Stardust Deluxe Bracelet, because it adds a touch of glamour without trying too hard and sets a stunning foundation for a layered bangle stack. And so my bracelet collecting continues… "
“One piece can make a whole outfit. That comes from my mom. She instilled the value of 'less is more' by keeping things simple, rather than going overboard with too many pieces or accessories."
"The Edify cuff is such a contrast to my day to day jeans and a tee, I instantly feel put together when slipping into something glamorous."
"When it comes to jewelry, I've been on a bracelet kick lately. If a bracelet has a bold design, like the Stardust Deluxe, I wear it alone, but stacking up a variety of styles can give a nice amount of interest to an otherwise basic look."
“For Mother’s Day, I'll be gifting her the Edify bracelet. The pearl and pavé crystals are so chic, but the graphic V shape is the unexpected element that has her name all over it."
“I remember spending so much time playing dress-up in her room, pulling out dresses from the ’60s and ’70s, standing in front of the mirror, and trying to picture myself in her shoes, while I was literally in her shoes.”
