Hiring a personal stylist can seem like a daunting or vulnerable process, but I like to look at it as your own personal shopping partner. Someone who is going to tell you what looks great, and guide you through options that would work better for you, all with your best interest at heart.
People subconsciously make judgements based solely on your appearance in under 2 seconds. So much of our personal image translates our personality, core beliefs and values, which means that having a style update can massively impact the way others choose to see you, and the message that you choose to put across.
Here are five valuable ways hiring a personal stylist can only help improve your quality of life:
1) Get that promotion at work!
Your personal style is a reflection of your level of self-esteem, so being able to dress yourself in the most flattering, well-put together looks will help you present yourself to others in the best light. Ever heard of the saying “dress for the job you want, not the job you have”? In the business world, the way you look can be just as important as the skills you have. A personal stylist can help you achieve those important mile stones in your career, by enhancing your corporate style and showing you how to put your best foot forward in the boardroom.
2) Improve your love life.
Very similar to the point above, your level of self-confidence can easily be identified and read by others through your body language. Confident body language often results from feeling and looking good. A personal stylist can show you how to enhance your best features, and help you to highlight features you may have overlooked. A good personal stylist’s aim is to help you celebrate the incredible person that you are, and to help you to see that a little bit more than you did yesterday.
3) Save your hard earned money.
Obviously we all know the benefits of concise shopping. Even grocery shopping with a list tends to go a lot better than shopping ‘blind’. The same can be applied to clothes shopping. A personal stylist will help narrow down exactly what it is you need to buy, by guiding you on the types of shapes, styles, colours and textures that work best for you. An efficient personal stylist will explain to you the ‘why’ so that you have a thorough understanding of these style choices to be able to then apply these over and over again in the future. A personal styling consultation is an investment in yourself, and one that will keep on giving for the rest of your life.
4) Solidify the message you want to send to the world.
It’s easy to send the wrong message without even opening your mouth. Your wardrobe tells everyone around you how you feel about yourself and others. Editing your message isn’t about putting you into a box with everyone else, it’s about figuring out what makes you unique and learning to accentuate and celebrate this. A personal stylist is more than just a stylist, they also help you answer these tricky questions and enable you to take a look at yourself and your values and beliefs. Personal style and psychology are so closely linked that you don’t often have one without the other. Your personal stylist will help you decide on exactly what this is for you individually, and guide you through the steps of combining this into your personal style for optimum success in life.
5) Feel a more confident,well-rounded you!
The fact of the matter is, is that we all have to get up and get dressed everyday. So why not put yourself in clothes that make you look AND feel great? Again, it’s part of your self-care routine, and anything done in love is done well. Reap the benefits of higher levels of self-worth, self-love and self-confidence and watch how powerful the transition can be on your entire world.
