There are some things in life that we talk ourselves out of buying simply because they are a “luxury we can’t afford”. One item that is often thrown into this category is a personal styling service, which couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, there are all kinds of benefits to hiring a personal stylist which make it a necessity over a luxury.
A personal stylist is someone who will work with you, learn about your personal habits, styles, and your lifestyle so they can put together the perfect wardrobe for your needs. Here’s what people don’t often think of, though, there is a huge pay off when it comes to confidence. As you walk around in your new wardrobe that fits you perfectly, flatters your body, and is appropriate for work/school/home you will feel confidence like never before.
Is there a price that can be put on confidence? This is a big part of why a personal stylist should be seen as a necessity, not a luxury.
It’s unfortunate but people are still judged upon their looks, and nowhere is that more obvious than in your own career. You can be the most skilled professional person at the office, but if you don’t look the part there isn’t much chance of you being recognized. Working with a personal stylist can help you put together that office-appropriate look that helps get you noticed, garners respect, and finally, helps you land that dream job.
There is also the fact that most of us don’t have money and time to just throw away and waste. Another big benefit of hiring a personal shopper is that they can save you time finding a new wardrobe, and save you money. Even if you spend a lot initially on the clothes, the fact is that they will fit, look appropriate, and flatter you. This means they won’t sit at the back of the closet with the tags still on them. You will actually get your money’s worth.
As you enter each new age group, changes take place, and part of those changes should be reflected in how you look and dress. Those ripped skinny jeans and crop tops that you wore in high school and college, just aren’t going to be appropriate in your late 20s and early 30s as you build your career and possibly a family. With that said, it can be hard to find that “new look” when you’re so used to a certain style.
A personal stylist can take an unbiased approach helping to find age and lifestyle appropriate clothing that will leave you feeling comfortable and stylish.
It’s time to start thinking about a personal stylist as an investment in your future rather than a luxury you can’t afford. The confidence and happiness it can provide far outweigh its cost.
