Why everyone should consider a stylist…

Fashion November 07 2013
In our quest to ensure you look and live your best, this issue is about stylists. They aren’t just for celebrities you know and they’re not just for those self-confessed fashion failures either! Here are a few good reasons why your ever-so-fashionable self should consider a stylist and how it could benefit your life, and even your wallet!

Judging books by their covers…
You know you do it…browsing the bookstore (our fav is The Avenue Bookstore) and your eyes are instantly attracted to the cover that uses stylish fonts, appealing images and colours. It’s no different with people. The clothes we wear are an essential part of our non-verbal communication. Research says that within 10-20 seconds of meeting someone they will have formed a judgement about you…mostly made by what you are wearing!
Saving time and money…

A good stylist who partners you on your quest for the perfect wardrobe will find items on sale, get special discounts at the best retailers and may also get access to items before they hit the shelves. They will also keep you updated on trends, helping you curate your way through the seasons.
An objective eye…
We have all done it. An unflattering pleated skirt, a jacket that channels rambo or perhaps an expensive ‘it’ handbag that dwarfs you…everyone could do with a second opinion and an objective eye. Having someone assist you in buying key fashion pieces will ensure you’re not wasting money, being impulsive or wearing a trend that was better suited to you 14 yr old cousin!
