Men’s Personal Stylist Online

Personal Stylist For men

Are You looking for a men’s personal stylist? where do you look? Most personal styling is aimed at women, and if you are a guy just looking for a bit of help to make the most of yourself, is that for you?

Whether you are a young man who needs to sharpen his act for a new job or an older man back in the world of dating after a long term relationship, help is out there if you know where to look.

Firstly, look for someone who has a speciality in dressing men. There are many so-called ‘stylists’ out there with little or no experience – for starters, a stylist will not come in a subscription box!

The next thing you want to look for is experience. You want a stylist who has years of experience dressing a wide range of people. Someone who has worked in a department store or for a subscription box service has enthusiasm and some expertise, but they need hands-on, in-person experience with a wide range of people to do the job correctly. That is where you learn the skills to become a men’s personal stylist.

Men's fashion Faux Pas

Here I will give you some tips on what you should avoid. Now, what are the common capsule wardrobe mistakes men make?

  1. I know you love your football T-shirt and I am sure bright orange suits you, but choose when to wear your beloved shirt. Now stay with me… I am not saying do not wear it all, but if, for example, you are going on a first date, leave it at home. Unless you know your date is a huge football fan.
  2. We do not need to know you can afford a T-shirt by you wearing the brand name emblazoned across your chest. By all means, buy from your favourite brands, but huge logos or brand names cheapen an outfit.  
  3. Learn what your size is! You would be amazed at how many men do not know their sizes. The correct sized garments will up your game immediately. 
  4. Avoid mixing patterns; it rarely works. If you wear a pattern like a check or a stripe, have that as your only pattern. 
  5. Avoid too many colours.
  6. If you are going on a date, wash and iron your clothes before you go!
  7. Pull your trousers up; now we do not want to see your faded, old pants!
  8. If you are conscious of your tummy, wear darker colours and do not wear bulky jackets or coats. 
  9. Crazy patterns will make you look just that. Crazy. 
  10. If you are conscious of hair loss, find a signature hat that works for you. It could be a cap, flat cap or fedora. Ask for the help of a good friend. 

Style tips For Men

My top ten men’ personal stylist tips are;

  1. Stick to around 7 or 8 colours in your wardrobe; this does not mean that you can never wear another colour again, just that it will be easier for you to create outfits that work. 
  2. Black does not suit everyone. If it washes you out, try navy or charcoal grey. If you are not sure, get a colour analysis and learn which colours will work for you. 
  3. Search for styles you like. Look in film, on Instagram and Pinterest. Take note of what styles you prefer and why. 
  4. Keep it classic and simple. As with the women, the best-dressed men were your grandparents. 
  5. You can not beat a classic white shirt. Dress it down with jeans or up as part of a suit. 
  6. A simple pair of black brogues and a plain coloured pair of trainers will finish off most outfits you own. Avoid bright colours and go for white, black, grey or brown.
  7. A plain white, a striped, a navy and a charcoal grey T-shirt will be great additions to any wardrobe. 
  8. You should own at least one suit. Get measured for it ad make sure it fits perfectly. 
  9. Press your clothes if you are looking to impress.
  10. Find out what your measurements are. You will up your game immediately by buying clothes that fit correctly. If you are unsure, either get measured up, go into a store, pick a garment, say jeans, grab the size you think you are and the size below and the size above. Try on all three to decide which works best for you.

Fashion Shopping Tips For Men

If you hate shopping for clothes, you will want to get in and out of those shops as quickly as possible. Even if you are shopping online, it is likely not an enjoyable experience. Take note of these tips to make the experience and quick and as painless as possible. Alternatively, hire a personal shopper for men to do it all for you.

  1. I have said it before, and I’ll repeat it – know your size before you shop. 
  2. If you are going into brick and mortar stores, go when it is quiet. The Saturday before Christmas will not be your best friend. If possible, go on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning first thing. 
  3. Be very specific about what you want to buy. For example, a navy blue three-piece suit in a chest 42, waist 32 and leg 32. 
  4. If you have time, research online first to get an idea of which stores to visit. 
  5. Take a list of exactly what you want or write a list before you go online.
  6. Find a good mate who will give you an honest opinion or get the help of men’s personal stylist
  7. Always look for quality over quantity.
  8. Avoid crazy fashions and stick to classic looks as they will last longer and look better. 
  9. If you have an idea of what you like, take an image to a large department store and get advice from the staff. 
  10. Get professionally measured up.

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.
