I was looking for an image consultant because I am updating my website and wanted to be sure my image was updated too! Orene came highly recommended and now I know why! Orene has been a great help to me in learning about what styles work for my body and what colors. Since I have had her help I regularly receive compliments – which is very nice! I especially appreciate that Orene teaches me as we go when we are shopping. That way, I feel very empowered and confident to shop on my own and take what I have learned back to my closet! I have worked with her twice – once for my winter update and recently for spring/summer. I also appreciate that she is very thoughtful and sensitive to my budget and frugal nature!

For some time I have been looking for a proper wardrobe consultant. I enjoy good clothing but find the process of finding it very tiring and usually end up frustrated as nothing seems to fit, go together, etc. Now enter Eric. Eric has been a breath of fresh air to my shopping experience. Eric epitomizes what a Wardrobe Consultant should be: punctual, efficient, thoughtful, and creative. At our initial meeting we discussed we discussed fit, clothing manufacturers and what our future collaboration will look like. Eric took notes on my measurements but I swear he has a photographic memory as he is so quick to remember them every time. After the first meeting, he drafted up a plan and we did a shopping trip. The trip was an eye opening experience. Eric was able to pick out all the right pieces like it was magic. We went to shops that I never considered or even heard of. He truly has a gift. The trip went so well that I have done subsequent trips with him! Furthermore, Eric is a tailor and knows the ins and outs of the industry. Gentlemen, if you are considering updating your wardrobe, look no further. Do yourself a favor and hire Eric. He can really work within any budget and I have complete confidence in his ability. It has been a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to our next meeting!

Shelley is a terrific fashion consultant and stylist for men. She accompanied me clothes shopping one weekend. She has a terrific eye for fashion and an easy manner. She made the entire process fun and successful. Like most men, I loathe clothes shopping. Nevertheless, I finished our adventure with some great items and felt good about the whole experience. I will definitely hire her again.

My shopping experience with Emilie was great! She was quick to assess my style, and I went home with many tips and suggestions on what would look cute on me. She helped me to choose different clothes and shoes to spice up what I already have at home. I really enjoyed the emails with additional clothing suggestions that she sent me after our shopping session as well. She is really fun and personable, and I can't wait to shop with her again!

Betina is so much fun to work with! She is creative and efficient. I have used her as my stylist for closet edits and personal shopping experiences. She helps me feel more confident in wearing my own clothes and helps me think a little more outside the box when shopping. I highly recommend Best Foot Forward!

Sana has a very unique taste that can tailor to anybody’s style. I went shopping with her and she put together the most amazing outfit for the occasion. It was so different yet met my own criterias as well. Being a busy body, I don’t have much time to waste but Sana was super helpful, efficient, & collaborative. Love her!!

I had a wardrobe consultation session with Carrie as well as a shopping trip. Both times with Carrie was amazing. She was very thorough and direct helping me organize my closet. She immediately understood my taste and put different looks together. Then we went on a shopping trip. She pulled more than 70 pieces for me and we picked the best ones together. I loved that we focused on finding timeless, signature pieces and I get a lot of compliments on those. I am a picky person when it comes down to fashion, there are certain brands I like and Carrie was an expert in them. After our trip, we continue to collaborate on my lookbook online. It is an excellent experience. I highly recommend Carrie.

Working with Nicole was a dream. I would highly recommend her as a personal stylist and plan to work with her again soon. // A bit of backstory: I'm a 5'7" slender (size 2) woman in San Francisco in her late 20s. And shopping stresses me out - too many choices, not enough guidance, and I don't want to spend the time reading through Cosmopolitan, Elle etc to figure out what style works and what doesn't. Because of the above, I've worked with a personal stylist before when I lived in New York. I walked away with many nice and expensive 'classic' pieces from Bloomingdale's, none of which really fit my style and none of which I wear today. I look at that experience as a waste. I felt very nervous trying this again, but knew I needed to give it a go. My goal was to finally nail a capsule wardrobe so that I wouldn't have to think about each individual piece anymore -- without spending hours of my life on research -- so that I could just feel comfortable and confident in my look. // Working with Nicole Nicole is very down-to-earth and very approachable. In our first phone call, she asked about my goals, my body type, my favorite stores and more. She then put together a Pinterest board and sent it over to me. And here is the PERFECT example of why I'm SO glad I worked with a personal stylist in the first place... Because I looked at the Pinterest board and thought, "Oh, how dull... these pieces are so basic and too loose to accentuate my figure." But then my boyfriend (a visual designer) took a look and said, "Actually, the length of this top would accentuate your torso," and "The cropped length of these pants would make you look taller," and "The draped look makes you appear slimmer than a tight one" and so on and so forth, enlightening me to all the fundamental principles of style that Nicole had subtly understood and applied to fit my body, that I never would have picked out for myself. With that I was sold. // Once in the Mall I love the styles in Aritzia, but the last time I went to their two story store I spent three hours but walked out empty-handed and deeply frustrated. Nothing I had picked out actually worked on my body, and I felt at once helpless and somewhat pathetic at spending all that time, trying on all those pieces, and not being able to land at something that worked for my look. With Nicole, I tried Aritzia again. She had pulled out several pieces all waiting for me when I walked in -- and they all fit like a glove and were exactly what I was looking for: chic, comfortable, casual, yet polished and with a touch of class. I was so excited at finally having found the pieces that could be a base for my wardrobe that I insisted on going through the store again together, in case we had missed something that might work just as well; and found nothing. She had picked out exactly what worked for my body type, exactly what worked for my style, and I wish I had trusted her eye and thoroughness from the beginning! // In Sum If you're looking to nail your wardrobe once and for all, and not have to spend hours stressing about it, buying pieces that you ultimately return, and just love what you wear without thinking about it, then work with Nicole. Just do it. You won't regret it and you'll have hours of your life back and compliments (and confidence) galore. Thank you, Nicole, and look forward to working together again soon.

I was referred to Design Friend by a girlfriend of mine. I've been wearing the same clothes for almost 15 years. Embarrassing, I know. So I was in desperate need of a wardrobe update, but didn't want to feel pressured to buy expensive clothes by the personal shoppers at the department stores. I was so happy with the looks Roberto provided me. He really listened to me, was very knowledgable about what kinds of clothes fit my body type, and gave me great tips to find online deals and pointed me to stores that fit my personal style. He was incredibly professional, did not pressure me to buy anything, and was more affordable then I thought. I would definetly give him 5 stars and look forward to using him for a refresher now and then. Miranda K.

Jessica is wonderful! I can not recommend her enough. Flexible and thoughtful, not only did she make a very stressful shopping project a positive experience, but her styling recommendations were great! I am happy to say that I have now used her services several times and am looking forward to working with her in the future.

I am an advocate and Pro for Thumbtack and hired Kayla for my boyfriend to prepare his apartment before his family came to town. The tasks were vague to start, but she acted as our personal assistant for 3 days since we have extremely busy schedules. She organized his place, put items in storage, set up the guest bedroom, grocery shopped, and minitored the cleaner. She was able to check in 2 different flights for our visitors and manage their airport Uber pick ups remotely, as well as managing some personal emails. She was able to provide an array of dinner reservation options and book them. The special touches were noticed, such as; putting stemmed glasses for the white wine in the freezer, checking in on our hired cleaner, organizing closet space in the guest bedroom and setting up their Netflix. Kayla was trustworthy, asked the right questions, and was very efficient! It is definitely worth hiring a pro to take the stress off your plate when having visitors, will hire her again in a month before more company.

The PradaG helped me revamp my wardrobe for work. We went shopping together and she was very attentive in learning about my personal style, my wants and dislikes while also pushing me beyond my comfort zone. It was a fun experience to work with a stylist and I definitely recommend her services if you need help refreshing your look too.

With out Delilah's help I would have been completely lost. Lets just say I am definitely no fashion guru. So, when it came to my high school graduation I had no clue what to wear. I contacted Delilah, and she was able to help me the next day! We went shopping, and she helped me find something that looks good, but that I would also feel comfortable in. Considering I am not the type to wear dresses, nor dress up, it took trying on plenty of outfits and styles until I was finally comfortable in this one. That being said, Delilah was very patient and professional. Thanks to Delilah I had a stress-free shopping experience, and I am really happy with the outcome!

Having a professional & passionate fashion designer, stylist & seamstress can save you a lot of time and effort when you are struggling to find that perfect outfit for that special occasion. Sometimes you just want to look different and stand out from a cookie cutter crowd by wearing that special outfit designed just for you! All the pants in the store are always too short or too long for you, familiar with that problem? Aleksandra is your solution for all these problems, and her services are only one click away! I used Aleksandra‘s services on numerous occasions. Every time she was with me every step of the way from designing my outfit, to shopping for the material, to adjusting it to fit perfectly. Finally, every time I walked out of her studio feeling special in her unique creations and you will as well…it’s guaranteed. I always receive numerous compliments whenever I wear her creations and my favorite one is “it fits you like a glove.” I usually just smile and think… well yes, of course, it is made just for me. :) Aleksandra regularly hems all of my pants and jeans as well. Aleksandra is not only completely awesome, but she is also very patient with her clients (as a picky one, that was very important to me). As picture is worth a thousand words, please look at the attached photos of me wearing Aleksandra’s creations in various occasions from costume party to the bachelorette party, from my favorite jeans dress to the long black dress for every occasion. Aleksandra always makes me look good and manages to hide all my figure imperfections. Thank you Aleksandra! PS. Aleksandra’s wedding dresses are breathtaking! I hope that one day I will have a chance to walk down the aisle in her creation.

My experience with Yarilis was nothing short of magical. Before working with her, my fashion sense was that of a 13 year old boy - not very impressive, professional, or inspired. She empowered me to release the wardrobe items that were not serving me in order to create the literal and emotional space for a look that really expresses my authenticity. After purging my uninspired closet, she took the pieces that had merit and transformed them into cohesive, professional, confidence-boosting looks. We went shopping for a few additions that took my look from pre-adolescent boy, to empowered, stylish adult. I couldn't be happier with the transformation that occurred. Thank you, Yarilis!

A++ ~ Would totally hire again! Jessie is an amazing closet cleanser / fashion advisor! After a year of personal shopping she did for me through an online service I asked if I could get help with a closet cleanse / consult. She was a blast to hang with and go through my closet with, we were laughing the whole time while choosing tons of old clothes to get rid of that didn't really fit my life anymore and I came away with a much better sense of the stuff I was missing the whole time.

I really needed a clothing update and Nicole did a fabulous job. She put together great outfits for work and play that I love and that fit. Everything was stylish and fashionable and received rave reviews from friends and coworkers. Even my husband thought every outfit was a hit. It was so easy working with her and everything she selected was perfect for me. She made my ‘shopping’ experience fun and easy. I feel like I even learned about fashion and styling by how she pulled everything together from clothes to shoes to accessories. I can’t wait to start shopping with her again for next season.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a personal stylist?

To find a fashion consultant, start by browsing portfolios online. Styling is a visual art, so finding a fashion consultant who fits the style you desire is key. Great personal stylists aren’t confined to one style, but if you’re seeking a hipper, fashion-forward vibe, you’d do well to find someone with a modern portfolio, while a fashion consultant with a consistently refined style could be a better fit if you’d prefer a more conservative look. Reading reviews is also helpful for learning more about the fashion consultant. Research their training, background and years of experience. After reviewing websites and Instagram accounts, meet with the stylist in person to learn how well they fit your personality; some fashion consultants offer a free phone consultation prior to hiring. Before hiring, make sure you clearly understand their terms of service and payment.

What do image consultants do?

Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion, such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion either using either what the client owns or taking a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, your lifestyle, and what you hope to present to the world, and will then determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you. You can get help streamlining your professional appearance, adjusting your style after a change in body size, solidifying a new look, or finding clothing to fit one area of your life like work or weekends. Image consultants also provide closet edits, going through your clothing and paring out what isn’t right for the look you’re trying to achieve. Personal shopping is another service that image consultants provide. After an image assessment, they can either shop with you or shop on your behalf to find you key pieces you need.

What is a fashion consultant?

A fashion consultant is a paid professional who will advise you on what to wear and how to wear it to fit your desired lifestyle or career goals. A fashion consultant can provide many services including personal shopping, closet audits, beauty consultations, style consultations and ongoing seasonal services. A fashion consultant often has a design or fashion background (although this is not required) and an innate sense of style. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut with the colors, cuts and designs we think suit us. A fashion consultant comes in with fresh eyes and provides constructive feedback to guide your style choices.

During your initial meeting, your fashion consultant will take stock of your current clothing selection and learn what you hope to achieve. They’ll identify core wardrobe pieces you need, as well as advise you how to wear items together. Many consultants create style lookbooks for their clients explaining things like exactly which shoes to wear with what pants and how to accessorize each look. Fashion consultants are a great option for people who are updating their style due to age, career changes or body changes, or who are just ready for a new look and feel. Most fashion consultants charge by the hour, with some offering packages and others working from a retainer.

What is a personal shopper?

Personal shoppers take the pain out of having good fashion. Personal shoppers are paid professionals who work with women, men or children who need style assistance. If you are stuck in a fashion rut, are unsure how to dress in a way that flatters your body, need to revamp your image, or want a more professional career look, personal shoppers can help. Personal shoppers identify the look their client wants to achieve and purchase the necessary clothing and accessories to achieve it. The process often begins with an initial consultation with the client to understand their style goals. This consultation may include a closet “audit,” an assessment of the client’s current wardrobe to see what items can be eliminated and what must be purchased to achieve the desired style.

The client and the personal shopper can shop together, selecting items as a team. The personal shopper may also shop on behalf of the client, then bring all items to the client for a final decision. A third option is pre-shopping, where the personal shopper reaches the store(s) ahead of the client and sets aside clothing for the client to try on, expediting the whole process — a win for anyone who hates spending time in the mall. Personal shoppers can also be hired for one-time events such as weddings, vacations or birthdays. You can also enlist a personal shopper to do your gift shopping for you. Overall, a personal shopper is an investment in making good style choices.

What does an image consultant do?

Image consultants help people look and feel their best by coaching them on their clothing and beauty choices. Image consultants help clients in a number of ways. An image consultant can be hired for a one-time occasion such as an awards ceremony, big birthday party or photo shoot. The consultant will recommend clothing, hair and makeup to suit the occasion, using what the client already owns or making a targeted shopping trip. For a complete fashion consultation, the image consultant will assess your wardrobe, lifestyle and image you hope to present to the world, and determine the best colors, styles and cuts for you.
