My styling experience was "top notch". Jammie really got to know me before we even met in person. At our first meeting she took great notes and really listened to what I was saying about my style hopes and dreams. Once the time came for me to meet her in the dressing room I was shocked to see ALL the styles she had pulled together. I mean EVERYTHING from my wishlist was right there in front of me. We tried on things I NEVER would have picked for myself and they ended up being my favorite outfits! Let's just say there is a reason we need a professional stylist. So all in all great experience and I recommend her to anyone looking to update their wardrobe or just a fresh new take on their current closet :)

Joanna is one of the most personable stylists with whom I have ever worked. Unlike other stylists who may come to an appointment with preconceived ideas about style, fashion interests or even favorite stores, Joanna takes time to listen to her clients, match their interests with some current trends and ensure that the selections made are pieces that coordinate with items already in a client's closet. She is fun, has a great sense of humor and most importantly, a great sense of style! She assisted me as I was transitioning between sizes and helped me maximize my current wardrobe while adding some key pieces that could be mixed/matched with things I already owned. She made me feel comfortable and we had a great time shopping and styling together!

    Anetra took me shopping to find different outfits for a themed photo shoot I did recently. She was so much fun to shop with! She helped me find items that were in my budget, fit the theme of the photo shoot, and could even be worn again as part of my normal everyday wardrobe. Instead of feeling intimidated about working with a fashion expert, I felt relaxed and had a great time. And when it was all finished, I looked amazing for my photos as well! I highly recommend Anetra if you are in need of wardrobe assistance.

    Bliss delivered exactly the kind of experience I was looking for in my fashion editorial shoot. His styling gave the shoot a unique voice while still fulfilling my vision. He demonstrates great management and directional skills, but is also open to suggestions and is very easy going. He will be as professional or laid back as you want him to be. I can't wait to work with him again.

    I really needed an outfit for Grammy weekend (which is fast approaching) and Talia Addie was so responsive and professional. The outfit she chose was so elegant and was just what I wanted. She even created me an over-the-shoulder faux fur sole piece within 48 hours of our consultation. One of my friends uses her as her personal shopper so I kind of already knew she was good. Reasonable pricing for great quality. I will definitely be using her in the future.

      Anna has a great personality and takes her time to make sure those who she works with has the best experience possible. She organized both my bedroom closet and my downstairs shoe closet and did a fabulous job! She also left me with several tips that I could use later.Thanks Anna!!!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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 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 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 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.

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.
