“SO I’M A BLOKE .......... WHAT CAN A PERSONAL STYLIST DO FOR ME”?
True story, this came through to my email this morning.....
I smiled inwardly as I recalled this same question many years ago when most people hadn’t even heard of “Personal Stylists” or if they had, they categorized them as belonging only to the rich and famous.
Let me assure you Lads, that times have changed! These days, for those who have used a personal stylist, regard them as integral members of their team and indeed find it hard to live without them.
So rather than asking what can a stylist/image consultant do for me, ask “How did I ever exist without one?
For busy professionals, a personal stylist is invaluable in saving time and money and taking the “ouch” out of the daily grind of what, where and how to wear it. Leave it to the experts and sleep easy!
In today’s digital marketplace, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” You will be judged instantly on what you wear and the message you convey visually..... success, confidence, credibility, character etc. You know the drill, you do exactly the same thing.
A stylist/image consultant can bring your authentic brand together and create the perfect picture to tell your unique story..... In short, you will look like where you want to go and represent what you want the world to see. A person of influence.
The importance of this cannot be underestimated in today’s business world. A stylist has an integral role to play, as does your secretary, trainer or mentor. A professional image is a key element for achieving success in your field.
Now to specifics.
It’s not just about the clothes!
A personal stylist works closely with you to achieve the desired outcome and will always give you an honest appraisal and recommendations in all areas of your presentation. The stylist is an expert on body shape and the specific clothes and styles that will work best to enhance your features.
You can kiss your wardrobe nightmares goodbye as your stylist will sort it out quick smart!
“Wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear”?
All will be put in order, gaps identified, ill fitting, out of date items moved on, combination suggestions for fresh looks and a look book for memory jolts. Your job and lifestyle needs will be considered and your wardrobe will reflect both, in an efficient, organised way. What more could a man ask for?
Stylists “shop” so it’s a no brainer that they have contacts with retail outlets, tailors and designers in order to source items specific to your individual requirements, including budget. They know value when they see it and are constantly in touch with current trends and sales. You are the centre of their world and your needs are paramount.
You will be “put together” and coordinated beautifully, not to mention, appropriately for age and body type .... Phew, what a relief!
Are we convinced yet?
The days of random or impulsive buying at sales will be over. Your purchases will be planned, ordered and cost effective. You will have a working wardrobe and no longer just wear 20% of the outfits at hand. No more wasting money!
Overall hiring a stylist will always save you time and money, not to mention eliminating the confusion and stress associated with “What will I wear”?
The eventual outcome will please you and it will be well worth the investment.
Skill set and experience are vital elements for success, but never underestimate the power of the visual!
Go for it ..... An enlightening and worthwhile experience ...
