As a personal stylist my job is not only to make people look good, but also to save their money. Truly, as strange as it sounds, you hire a personal stylist to save on buying clothes you don’t wear and simply buying to much. Personal stylist has to come up with a capsule wardrobe full of look-transformers, which allow you to mix and match all you have in your wardrobe and have a different look every time. What I love the most, as well as my clients, is a day-to-night outfits, which literally means the outfit that can be worn during the day, but easily up-graded with accessories to the evening appropriate look. It can be something casual like a pair of jeans and silk or cotton shirt worn with ballerina’s or sneakers during the day, and with heels and necklace in the evening. See below:
If you work in more formal environment and have to wear a suit every day, then my look is a good example of turning the most classic pant suit into the most daring evening outfit by just adding fluo accessories: heels, necklace and some edgy clutch.
You don’t need to match the colors, as longs as they stay on the same contrast level. If you go for pastel shoes, pastel needs to come back in your jewellery or a bag. If you wear flashy pumps, match them with another flashy detail: earrings, clutch, or a brooch.
When buying a certain office outfit, try to imagine how you can transform it into in evening look, and buy some extra accessories to dress it up if necessary. If you are a modern working girl, you mostly probable do not always have time to drop by home and change before going out. A day-to-night look will not only safe your time, but your budget as well.
Work hard, party hard! Invest in accessories! There can be too much clothes, but never enough shoes or accessories. Have a wonderful weekend! X
