To Nicole Busch, style is about more than putting together great outfits. It’s about expressing a signature, unforgettable YOU — in the way that Coco Chanel became synonymous with tweed and pearls, she says, or Karl Lagerfeld became known for his gloves and ponytail.
Need inspo to create your own unique look? Make sure to stop by and talk to Busch, the owner and fashionable force behind Nicole Blair Wear in Carmel, during Style Swap Nov. 15 at the Indiana Design Center.

What she’s bringing to Style Swap: A pair of green silk tie-dye joggers “that were my go-to pants all summer and for multiple vacations.” And a pair of cropped Current Elliott boyfriend jeans.
Favorite fall/winter fashion trend?
Anything LEOPARD. It’s my signature style. Although, I think it’s classy and always in style!
Fashion trend you’d love to see make a comeback?
The art of dressing. While I am a casual person, I would love to see the effort by women in the 1940s demonstrated today. Christian Dior, in the ’40s, created the groundbreaking silhouette that emphasized a woman’s body. Paired with a hat and gloves, it was the epitome of elegance.
Heels or flats/sneakers?
HEELS all the way!
You’re strutting a major fashion runway. What’s your song?
Lizzo’s “Good as Hell.” I play this song during my keynote speaking engagements. It’s catchy, uplifting, and empowering!
At age 42, Amanda Kingsbury did a cartwheel on a dance floor in a pair of 4-inch heels. Lesson learned.
