So there is one question we always come across when we meet people and that is: what are the benefits of hiring a stylist?
A personal stylist’s main job is to give you the tools and an expert’s eyes to enable you to look and feel great every single day when you put on your clothes; and this is something that so many of us struggle with everyday. What shall I wear? I don’t have anything to go with the new top I bought. What shoes would go with this new dress? I only wear black and don’t know what colours I should wear?
By hiring a stylist these questions are eliminated and you have a new-found freedom when it comes to your wardrobe. Here are a few benefits of hiring a personal stylist to work with you:
Cut out the time at looking at your clothes and thinking I have nothing to wear or even – what shall I wear? Working with a stylist to build a capsule wardrobe means that you know what you already have and you know how to put combinations together that look great. With regards to money – by working with a stylist, you will learn how to dress for your body shape, see which pieces are missing from your wardrobe and be really specific when it comes to purchases.
Ever wonder why there are pieces in your wardrobe that you never wear? You put it on and it just doesn’t look right? By working with a stylist you get to understand your body shape and how to emphasise all your assets and how not draw attention to the areas that we like to hide. Dressing for your body shape is one of the biggest game changers when it comes to what contributes to us feeling great about what we put on and how we look.
We are all different. We have different commitments, activities, jobs, likes and dislikes and working with a stylist, you’ll get someone who understands your unique position and works with you to create looks that work with your life and what you are up to. Working with a stylist you can create looks that translate into each and every area of your life whilst still being you.
Your stylist can work with you to create a shopping strategy that helps to eliminate impulse buys and purchases that you soon regret. By creating a capsule wardrobe, identifying your body shape – you gain confidence in knowing exactly what pieces will work and therefore saves you money on items that “look good” on the hanger and doesn’t do justice to you.
A capsule wardrobe is the foundation to creating looks that work for your body shape, your colour palette and most importantly your lifestyle. By working with a stylist you can look at what you already have, what’s missing and what needs to be included to give you a strong foundation that you can then build upon.
Working with a stylist doesn’t always mean shopping. You may have a wardrobe bursting with clothes and pieces that you haven’t worn or you may just want to refresh what you already have. By working with a stylist, they can bring fresh eyes to what you already have and create new looks that bring new life to your pieces so you enjoy your clothes again.
We all know those people who say “I only wear black” or “black is slimming so that’s what I’m going to wear” Working with a stylist, you get to understand which colour pallet you fall under and how to use colour to emphasise your features. Colour has several benefits to how we feel and knowing how to wear colour and adding it to your wardrobe can really boost your confidence.
Ever wonder what’s coming out next? How to wear certain trends you see in magazines and on the catwalk? Working with a stylist you can help you decipher trends, work out what fits in with your lifestyle and how to create looks so trends don’t become overwhelming or something that you avoid.
Who doesn’t want to step out of their home feeling like a million dollars? Your stylist, by working hand in hand with you, by understanding your lifestyle and your needs creates a wardrobe that you love and make you feel great. There is nothing better than looking in the mirror and loving what looks back at you and stepping out knowing that you can conquer what life throws at you. No more hiding, it’s your time to shine and be seen!
One of the biggest benefits of working with a stylist is the ability to own your uniqueness and being able to flaunt it. No two people are alike so you know that your creations are unique to you, your taste, your lifestyle your budget – just to you! And what’s not to love about that?
