What Does a Personal Stylist do and Why Should I Use One?

Imagine this…..you open your wardrobe and you love every piece of clothing in there that you can’t decide what to wear. Everything fits you perfectly, matches numerous other items in the wardrobe, and is in line with today’s trends while maintaining a timeless class. Sadly, this is not the reality for the majority of people.

Rather, most people open their wardrobe with a sigh and with no inspiration pick through a tired wardrobe to put on a drab outfit, hoping to spruce it up with a different colour belt. If that trendy and perfect wardrobe sounded pretty dreamy, but you have no idea where to start, then you may be the perfect candidate for a fashion stylist. Wondering what a personal stylist is and what they can do for you? Read on!

So… What is a personal stylist?

Great question!

A personal stylist is someone who can help you revamp your wardrobe and style in numerous ways. A few methods are personal shopping, wardrobe makeovers, image consulting and colour analysis. You don’t have to be rich to afford a personal stylist, in fact, later we will talk about how expensive it is NOT to have a personal stylist! 

Anyone from mums to executives can benefit from some style tips, and it is easy to find one that will suit your budget and goals. Here are the top 4 reasons why adding a stylist to your life will make a huge difference!

You will save money

Hiring someone to help me get dressed will save money? There is a great saying that is very applicable here, “Only the rich can afford to buy cheap things”. We have all been there, buying cheap brands and not spending money on ourselves.

However, you end up having to replace those low quality items so often, you may as well buy a few pieces of really high-quality clothingthat will last. As an added bonus, they almost always fit and look way better than the cheap versions!

Define your personal style

I love when I see a woman whose outfit totally fits her personality.

Whether it is bohemian, or classy, or super spunky. It just really shows when a woman is confident enough in her personality to let it shine through her clothes.

A personal stylist will help you create, develop and realise your personal style, then translate it into a gorgeous wardrobe. You will be surprised how just a few pieces in combination with what you already have can completely revamp your style!

Translate trends

Skinny jeans aren’t going anywhere, so it is time to embrace them along with so many other lingering and new trends. As a woman in my mid-30s sometimes I look at current trends and roll my eyes thinking “I could never pull that off”. A personal stylist can take into account the shape of your body, your personal style, current trends, and translate all of it into a perfect outfit that represents you in modern style.

Accessories

Hey you know those big silver hoop earrings you throw on to jazz up that black blouse. Well stop doing that. Those are out of date and made from cheap metal. The right accessories from earrings to belts to shoes and all the options in between, can transform even the most boring outfit into pure class and elegance. A personal stylist is just what you need to identify what you already have that will work, and a few things that will make all the difference.  

No need to live in a state of envy of other people’s outfits and personal style. Give yourself the biggest gift of all and hire a personal stylist to revamp your wardrobe and send you out in style. Whether you are starting a new job, a new relationship, or just want to spark up some confidence on a regular Wednesday, the perfect outfit can be the perfect answer.
