I often compare hiring a personal stylist to hiring a personal trainer. You want to find someone who really “gets” you. Someone who understands your body, your lifestyle and your goals. My job as my Personal Stylist is to get to know everything I can about my clients, so that I can help them push past their wardrobe woes and closet clusters and into a new sense of self.
Over my nine years in the fashion industry, I have seen the positive difference my styling services can make in my clients lives. Not only does clothing change the way the world responds to you, it also increases a sense of confidence and pride in who you are. That’s why I want to take a look at 5 reasons why I think you should bring a personal stylist into your life.
#1 For a confidence boost
It’s no secret that clothes (or accessories) can boost your mood and make you feel better about yourself. But knowing how to wear those clothes is the key to an authentic confidence in your style. Most of my clients already have great items that are just waiting to be worn, but they simply don’t know how to make them work together. A stylist can show you how to make outfits out of these individual pieces, so that you’re never left wondering what to wear in the morning.
#2 To save some cash
You may think that you can’t afford a professional to help you with your wardrobe. The truth is, can’t afford NOT to hire one. Your shopping habits can be pricey (no matter how frugal you are). Having someone in your corner, helping you make the right selections about what you should be investing in, can really help you save a lot money in the long run. Clients often hire me because they are tired of spending needless amounts of money on what I call “temporary happiness” pieces. These are items that may make you feel great for a hot minute, but end up sitting in your closet in the long run. A personal stylist will help you get organized and make the best decisions for your body, lifestyle and budget.
#3 It can get you job (or a date)
Like or not, people judge us on the way we look. This is especially true when it comes to job interviews or the dating scene. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not telling you to change who you are as a person, but I am saying that a stylist can help you find an improved way of presenting who you are. It takes all of 5 seconds for our brain to register if we think a personal looks stylish or professional. Sometimes it just takes the perfect wrapping to complete a perfect package, whether that means lading you a dream job or hooking a hottie.
#4 You will always look picture perfect
Ever wonder why celebs always have personal stylist dress them for major red carpet events or movie premieres? It’s because they know they will be photographed a million times and those images end up all over the internet . . . forever. The same goes for us common folk. In a Facebook obsessed culture, you want to feel confident that you look your best when your friends post pics of last night’s party on the net. I love bringing clothing options to my client’s home before a big event, whether that it be a cocktail party or wedding. You always want to look amazing when those paparazzi catch you!
#5 It will save you time and stress
If your like most people today, your life is a hectic mix of work and family. Between the meetings and soccer games, it’s hard to find time to shop, not to mention put outfits together! One of my favorite things to do is what I call my Closet Update. This is where I come into a client’s closet and help them make sense of the madness. Having a clean and well-organized closet can save you a lot of time getting dressed in the morning and the stress of having to find your favorite shoe or sweater.
