Last week, I started this series by looking at how a stylist will give you a sense of personal empowerment. If you missed it, you can read the full article here
This week, in Part Two, I look at how a stylist will channel your style into items you will actually wear.
Every year, I hire an accountant to do my taxes. He gives me financial advice, knows the ins and outs of the tax system and what I can claim, and ultimately saves me time, energy and money.
In a similar fashion, a stylist knows the ins and outs of how to dress, can select items that best suit a person and create the desired image. Time and money saver? You bet it is!
How many times have you bought something only to find it still hanging in the closet three months later, tags still on? Or do you desperately rush to the store each time you have something on, only to end up feeling overwhelmed and miserable because nothing seems to fit or look good on you?
The problem is, it's easy to buy the wrong things when you don't know what items actually work for you, as well as how you want to present yourself.
You need a strategy. Successful closets aren't built or coordinated by chance.
A personal stylist will help you get clear on what items make the most of your body shape AND what items match your inner essence.
Style isn't just an outside job, because ultimately the clothes that will truly lead you to look your personal best, are the ultimate expression of YOU.
Uncovering who you are, and understanding what items you feel best in, and why, is the foundation to building a powerful and persuasive personal style.
Once you have clarity on what really works for you, you'll know which items will help articulate your desired style and personality so you can be targeted in what you buy. But perhaps most importantly, you'll wear everything you buy because they're right for you.
