Teresa is fantastic at her job! As a fashion consultant she gave me great advice about my wardrobe and helped me shop for much more flattering clothing. I also had her do a makeover for me and the results were so natural and better than any makeover I've gotten in the past. It was a lot of fun to work with her and she is great to shop with since she really understands fashion.

Lynne has transformed my relationship with my clothes, my buying, what I keep in my closet, how I walk out the door. Both my sisters noticed and traveled here from the Midwest for their own color, fashion, and wardrobe consultations. And now they look terrific too! Thanks, Lynne!

I had a wonderful experience working with Lorie. She was able to bring my design to life even though I know I was a difficult client to work with. She was able to work in a fast pace and across states. I am located in Florida and she was able to get this design to me at my request without any hassle. I would recommend her work to others in a heartbeat.

Ting was an absolute blast to work with! I had an company event that was "smart-formal", I didn't really know what that meant. So I asked Ting for some emergency fashion help! She responded promptly, asked me what my usual style is, gave me bunch of options to choose from. She made sure to dress me in a style that I was comfortable with. At the end, I got tons of compliments for my "smart-formal" outfit at the event. Ting was throughly professional, and she had a fun personality that made her a blast to work with.

I hired KST by K. Symone to assist me with piecing together the clothing that I have in my closet. She came to my home and given the clothing in my closet, she created several outfits. These outfits range from clothing to wear on special occasions, such as date night to work wear. I have pieces in my closet that I purchased and would never wear because I either, 1) thought the clothing item didn’t fit or 2) I didn’t know what to wear with the clothing item. I found myself wearing the same items over and over, and would buy clothes on a weekly basis— all because I felt I didn’t “have enough clothes.” KST not only pieced the clothing together, but also taught me how to do it on my own. Now, whenever I have a question about fashion, I seek out KST by K. Symone. This fashion consultancy is the real deal and I’ll continue to use the services, without a doubt!

I had a blast working with Styled For You. Her charisma and love for fashion made it super enjoyable to work with her. She helped me identify my personal style and created and executed a vision for a major photo shoot that was loved by the masses. I would definitely hire her again. No hesitation. She's my go-to.

The experience was amazing. She was able to truly make my dream come alive, she was also able to fix any problems I had in a timely fashion. The team is very professional and makes it their business to make the customer feel beautiful in their new design. I can honestly say prom season is very hectic but they were able to deliver great work with good timing. Will be doing business with them again.

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. 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 a specific area of your life like work or weekends.
