In Hollywood, stylists are a staple. They are the beating heart of the red carpet looks, well put together outfits and even the street style ensembles we try to copy. We know that all our favorite style icons have a little help.
They have people who know exactly what they like, where to shop and how to make sure it fits their bodies perfectly. The question is, is it worth getting a stylist if you’re a non-famous person, if so how do you even find someone?
A personal stylist is actually a great investment you can make in the quality of your wardrobe, and they can help you develop and express your unique tastes. For a lot of women, the world of fashion is actually quite overwhelming – it can be hard to really know what works for you, what to buy for your body or how to put good outfits together.
Usually, we’re forced to figure all this out all on our own, but the great thing is personal stylists are all over the place, and they are actually quite affordable so you can level up your style without paying Hollywood styling fees.
A stylist will help you;
- Figure out what your unique style is: They will get to know your personality, see the kinds of looks you gravitate to and help you put outfits together accordingly.
- Learn how to dress for your body: we’re all different, and there are a ton of different shapes and sizes. A stylist can help you determine what works with your style. They also have special insights on the foundation of a good outfit – undergarments. They recommend the right types of women’s lingerie to make sure that your clothes look good and feel comfortable.
- Know where to shop: The fashion landscape is full of retailers, and stylists are usually keyed in on smaller brands and companies that sell great stuff. This helps you find more unique pieces and makes it easier to find exactly what you want.
- Change Up Your Style: Sometimes you just want a change in your style, but you just don’t know where to start. A personal stylist can be very instrumental in helping you transform your style, and help you intentionally create a more cohesive and less generic personal style.

Finding Your Stylist
Thanks to the internet, we have access to personal trainers and life coaches who are all over the world. All you need is an internet connection, a phone and a Zoom account. The best place to start your stylist search is on the internet, especially on Instagram. What’s great about Instagram is that you can actually check out their style, and how they dress their clients so you get an idea of the kind of work they do. If you like their work, you can move forward.
Try a Style Box Service
Style boxes have become a very popular fashion retail model, making online shopping feel more like a luxury service. Style boxes also come with their own stylists usually, and when you sign up, you do a comprehensive quiz on the styles, outfit combinations, settings, and vibes you like. They use your answers to tailor a small collection of clothes which they mail directly to you. It’s more affordable than getting a stylist, and it’s a great way to dip your toes into a more customized service.
Set An Intention
What do you need a stylist for? Do you want to get a capsule closet together, shop for new items or do a complete overhaul? Having an idea of what your pain point is can allow the stylist to give you the help you really need, and improve the outcome by setting a clear goal for how you want to dress.
Don’t hire a stylist immediately. Do your research first, get to see what’s out there, figure out if you and the stylist are a good fit and then commit. Don’t be afraid to take multiple quotes so that you can make a really good decision. As much as you’re paying for their expertise, you’re putting money on the line, so it’s about how well they meet your requirements. Making a decision too hastily could lead to wasted time, money, more confusion and even regret.
