If you are like most non-celebrities or public figures you have never considered hiring someone to help you shop for clothing and accessories—or you consider personal styling to be an unnecessary extravagance. However, the fastest-growing client base for stylists is everyday people. Here are just a few reasons why.
A Stylist Saves You Money
Most stylists charge between $50 and $100 an hour with an average of 6 hours to view your current clothing and accessories, shop, and create a variety of mix and match options. Most stylists shop at luxury department stores and boutiques. So, how does styling save you money? When you add up the items you purchase and never wear, tossing cheap clothing and accessories that only last one season, and the time you save shopping and getting dressed each day—you may save far more than you would spend going it alone.
You But Better
A stylist’s job isn’t to give you a full fashion makeover, unless that is what you are looking for. They browse your current wardrobe to see what you already have as well as the colors and styles you naturally gravitate towards. They may help you to elevate your style, but the goal is that you still feel like you in your new wardrobe. It’s also the perfect way to create balance for those whose personal style can’t be fully expressed at work by creating looks that fit the expected dress code—without losing your look.
From seasonal shopping to creating a signature look, deciding which trends work for you, and everything else in-between a personal stylist can help. You can even hire a stylist to work with you virtually to create looks from online websites and within styling apps.
