Stuck in a style rut? We all know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but that doesn’t stop us from doing it. Personal stylists know that the way a person dresses can affect the opinion that others have of them, which in turn influences their confidence and self-esteem. It can be hard knowing the best way to dress to suit certain lifestyles or body shapes – luckily stylists are on hand to help us navigate the sartorial minefield and emerge looking and feeling fabulous.
Your personal stylist will work with you to identify the best clothes and colours to emphasize your natural assets. Instead of imposing different styles on you, the stylist will consult you on your personality, style, size, shape, budget and preferences, so that they can help you to choose clothes that will make you feel comfortable as well as confident.
Stylists offer a range of different services, from personal shopping to compiling a capsule wardrobe and colour analysis. Colour analysis works on the basis that many of us buy clothes in colours that are not flattering to our body types or skin tones. Your personal stylist will work with you to identify the colours which highlight your features, and can help you discover if there are any shades you should steer clear of at all costs.
If you wake up in the morning and struggle to find something to wear that makes you feel good, a stylist may be able to help. Looking good can make you feel happier in your skin and impart confidence that others will pick up on – what’s not to love?
Many personal stylists will give you a style guide that you can hang on to after your consultation – take it with you whenever you go shopping and you’ll never feel lost again.
