Blair Moore has loved all things fashion from a young age. The Nashville native studied Fashion Merchandising and Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in the fashion capital of the world, New York City. So it was inevitable that the mother of three would find herself in a career where she would help other women find their confidence through their wardrobe. Moore says, "I love helping women find their true personal style and get them organized in their closet so that they feel truly empowered to get dressed each day with ease and confidence!" Blair shares four trends for spring and how to incorporate them into your wardrobe.
Bright and bold colors
This season, bright colors like hot pink and kelly green are trending. I know this can be difficult for my neutral loving ladies, so I always recommend starting small. Choose a fun colorful earring or add a bold clutch to brighten up your look. You can also have fun with your shoes by adding a colorful heel or sandal to a dress or denim outfit.
From floral midi dresses to feminine floral blouses, this season is all about flower power. Choose a flowy floral skirt and pair it with your favorite knotted tee and sandals for an effortless look. Tip: If you're wearing a dress with a large floral print, try adding a denim jacket, light cardigan, or woven belt to add texture and break up the print.
From casual jogger sets to feminine tiered skirts and puff sleeved tops, two-piece sets are everywhere! What I adore about two-piece sets is that you can wear them multiple ways. Wear it as a set or take the top and pair it with denim, or take the skirt and pair it with a tee and light jacket or blazer. Two pieces, but multiple ways to wear them!
Let me be clear- I LOVE a skinny jean and always will! But the 90’s denim trend is having a moment and if you want to embrace it, here are a couple of tips: Choose a pair with a high-rise and a more relaxed fit through the leg. You want the jean to fall right above the ankle bone. This is slimming and flattering to the eye. Pair with a strappy heel, sneaker, or slide.
Edit down your closet. Ask yourself these three things: Do you still like it? Does it fit with in reason? Is it still in good condition? If the answer is no, it is time to donate or sell that item. Keep a donation basket in your closet to help you stay on track.
new and old
Buy something new, get rid of something old. Each time you buy a new item, get rid of an item in your closet. This manages the chaos of having too many options in your closet. We only wear about 20% of the items in our closet so make a list before you go out shopping and shop with intention.
When it comes to organization, having a system in place is key. Utilize the entire space for your items. For example, buy closed bins for out of season or travel items and place them on the top shelf. Utilize the back of the door or any blank walls with hooks for hats or a jewelry organizer. Get rid of items that are taking up space in your closet like shoe boxes, sentimental items, and bulky items like luggage. Store them elsewhere if you can. The two best things you can do to save on space and have an organized closet
is to invest in all matching slim velvet hangers. This frees up more space in your closet and looks great too! And finally, add matching labeled baskets for folded items to keep everything nicely organized and in specific categories.
