“Fear nothing—especially prints and color. When it comes to brights and patterns, my mother is completely courageous, and I appreciate her adoration of both. The fact that she’s wearing a matching crop top and shorts in the most vibrant color palette ever? Too cool.”
Kelli Thoreson: Mom of Shanelle Thoreson, Graphic Designer
“The best style advice from my mom—lipstick. Find your signature color and never
leave the house without it! Lipstick instantly makes you look more polished and accentuates your smile! Oh, and always choose clothes that are tailored to your body!"
Diane Scanga: Mom of Michelle Scanga, Associate Editor
“My mom taught me to never leave the house looking like a ragamuffin because you never know who you might run into. What’s a ragamuffin you ask? Think—“I woke up like this” before Beyoncé dubbed this look chic. My mom also taught me the value of shopping around by exploring and appreciating local boutique stores.”
