I’m lucky to get to spend time in some amazing closets with equally amazing wardrobes. I love getting a peek into our client’s personal style. Many are busy moms like me so there’s plenty of #momstyle staples, however they always have those shoes, bags, and pieces that definitely make me think “#goals.”
I stick to what I am good at in a closet – organizing – which is vastly different than styling. And I get asked a lot during consults whether I can help them edit out items. Sure, I can tell you what I think looks good. And when everything is organized and categorized it will make it MUCH easier and faster for you to see everything you have in one spot and start editing out.
But just like I like to be the specialist for my clients’ spaces, I like to refer them to specialists that have that expert eye and keen knowledge of fashion to help edit out, boost, or transition their pieces.
I decided to enlist the help of my friend and partner Francesca Miller, Luxury Manager from The RealReal’s Private Client Group location in Scottsdale to get her take on this season’s 3 must-have trends – and how she can help us make room for them in your closet. The RealReal offers authenticated luxury consignment and their white-glove services (which recently launched in AZ) is just like our full-service organizing :: simple, easy, takes care of everything from start to finish, you don’t have to think about it. It’s done.
SO. Back to fall trends. Because I can tell you everything about organizing, but I am no stylist or fashion expert. (#momstyle for the win!) But don’t we all love to know what’s in? I do! And I have seen Francesca’s personal wardrobe and style (I actually helped her move into her AZ home and closet) and let me tell you. She KNOWS STYLE.
Take it away, Francesca!
Fall is here! And I know I am excited to change it up and wear my favorite clothes. Trends for Fall are everywhere and the most fun and wearable include:
1. Booties: Whether low or high heels, booties are a must have for Fall 2016! My favorites this season are by Miu Miu and YSL. Miu Miu is continuing with their embellishment on heels, and YSL is doing a great lace up booty with a high chunky heel. Both are so chic with pants and skirts.
2. Printed tops: With or without bows, printed tops are a staple that can be worn all year long but are especially hot this Fall. I love Isabel Marant and Proenza Schouler, and check out the really pretty tops from Gucci as well. Gucci is the MUST have this season.
3. Velvet: Burgundy, grey or navy – velvet is a perfect classic to add this season. It is always such a beautiful and luxurious addition, but remember to keep velvet to a minimum: shoes, jacket, bag or belt – not all together.
Time to say goodbye: Clothing you have not worn in one year, and any handbags, jewelry, shoes you have not worn or used in 3 months! That is my rule. If you don’t love it, you are not using it and it should be sold. Buy something new and fresh that you can wear now and live in!
