How To Find The Best Personal Stylist

When looking for a personal stylist, you should aim for the best. Now the best might not be someone who works with A-list celebrities. It might also not be someone who has spent years working in a department store. Ideally, you want to hire a personal stylist with a wide range of experience with various clients from different backgrounds. When you are looking to hire a personal stylist look for;

  1. At least ten testimonials from a range of clients
  2. At least ten years of experience. That experience will benefit you. 
  3. A range of services, including Personal styling, colour analysis, body type guides, wardrobe edits, lookbooks and personal shopping; this way, you can choose only what you need.
  4. Find out if they do online and in-person styling.
  5. If only online, look for a stylist with in-person experience too. 
  6. A stylist who has only worked at stitchfix or similar is not a personal stylist. 
  7. See if they have a blog, and check out the info on there.
  8. Ask for a free consultation to gauge whether they can help you or not. 
  9. Ask about their experience with your issue.
  10. Find someone who wants to listen to your needs and is not about placing you in a predefined box.

  2. A body type analysis to determine which body type you are.
  3. Clarification on which styles suit your body shape and why. 
  4. A wardrobe edit to go through your wardrobe and eliminate anything that is no longer working for you. 
  5. A private pinterest board or similar to identify which styles you like. 
  6. A discovery call or free consultation to learn your needs and point you towards the best service. 
  7. Personal shopping either online or in-person to search for clothes that work for your wardrobe needs or special occasion.

Capsule Closet Success testimonials

'When you join the membership it isn't generic it is tailored to your needs. Michelle considers each individual person and provides advice and guidance based on their needs. I have learnt so much since I joined I feel like I could sit an exam on it now! Honestly, without a doubt if you feel like you are lost with what to wear, you don't know what suits your body shape or your shape has changed, you've lost confidence, you're starting a new job, or you want to minimise your wardrobe, Michelle's membership is without a doubt for you. You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'
I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊
There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
