Find A Personal Stylist For Men
So you are looking for a men’s stylist in London? You have come to the right place. I have been a personal stylist in and around London for 22 years. In this post, I will tell you what you can book, what to expect and what to avoid. It is worth thinking about what you need and making sure beforehand that the service meets those needs.
First of all, experience is necessary. Anyone can set themselves up, get a few friends to give them a review and set themselves up as stylists. A professional will use their knowledge and experience to help you rather than pigeonhole you into a style that feels uncomfortable. The clothes have to be about what feels the best on you. A wardrobe that makes you feel confident is critical.
Personal Styling Services
There are several services you can choose from depending on your needs. Firstly, you need to decide if you want a stylist in person or a virtual stylist. In person, I will assess your needs, then meet you at a mutually beneficial location and assist you in looking for clothes that work for you. Alternatively, I will go and shop for you independently and then bring the clothes to you to try on. To book me in person, you can book a free consultation here.
A personal stylist online works very similarly. Only the service is in the comfort of your own home. First, I will assess your needs via a live video consultation. You will then receive a couple of PDFs highlighting which colours and styles will suit you, including links to where you can buy them. Next, we will do a live wardrobe edit where we go through all of your wardrobe and remove whatever is not working. Finally, depending on the package you purchase, you also have the option for a personal shopping lookbook. The lookbook will be a collection of clothes I suggest for you with links to where you can buy them. It is like a personal shopping service online. To discuss personal styling online in more detail, you can book a free consultation here.
Personal Shopper For Men
A personal shopping service is perfect for you if you would rather someone else do all of the work for you. Again you can either choose from booking me online or in person. In person, I will discuss your needs and take down some information from you, then go out and purchase a collection of clothes within your budget.
If you would prefer to book me virtually, again, I will take a few details down from you, and then I will search online for a collection of clothes suitable for you and your lifestyle needs. The collection will be delivered virtually with links to where you can buy. Alternatively, you can give me a budget, and I will purchase and have the items delivered to you.
Subscription Boxes - What You Need To Know
In recent years there has been a growth in online personal styling subscription boxes. You pay a small monthly fee for a ‘stylist’ to choose outfits for you, and the items are sent to your door. You then only pay for what you decide to keep.
There are several problems with these sites. Firstly, it is not a personal stylist choosing the clothes. An individual interested in fashion trained to use an algorithm selects your clothes. You will not get a personal stylist from a subscription box.
The selections are minimal in terms of style, size and budget. You fill out a questionnaire which then gets fed into an algorithm that someone chooses from. There is nothing personal about these services. Do not be fooled; you get what you pay for.
If you would like options in clothes sent to you each month, by all means, sign up, but do not expect a service curated personally to you and your needs.
