What is a personal stylist ?

A personal stylist helps you look and feel your best. For example...

You might look in the mirror and see a plain, fat, old or unstylish woman but a good personal stylist can help you choose clothes that make you look and feel fabulous

Check out this 'before and after' example...

Before and After Example

 A personal stylist can help you choose clothes that make you look and feel slimmer, younger and confident no matter what your age, shape or size. Let's look at an example...

A personal stylist can help you look younger and slimmer

Meet Peta-Rene

Peta-Rene is plus 14 US with G cup bust, a big tummy and slim hips

Many size 14 US women with the same shape as Peta-Rene would choose a dress like this because it's a pretty fabric and hides the tummy. Ticks all the boxes, right?

But, now let's see what style of dress a LoveIt Personal Stylist would choose for her instead...

The benefits of working with a personal stylist

The difference between these two dress styles on Peta-Rene can be measured in kilos and confidence

Don't you think she looks slimmer, years younger and far more attractive, modern and stylish in this dress?

But many plus size women wouldn't choose this style on their own because it's contoured, not floaty! It's a little bit scary unless you know 'how' to wear it...

personal stylist takes you out of your 'same old' patterns and shows you not just 'what to wear' but 'how to wear' it too! They take you on a journey to discover your personal style!

But this is just one example. Check out these 'Before and After' case studies for many other benefits that are specific to you...

Before and After examples

The main Benefit of Working with A Personal Stylist...

The main benefit of working 1-1 with a professional personal stylist is speed!

You can spend hours, weeks, months or years researching style and fashion advice on YouTube, Google, Insta or TikTok. But there's a >90% chance you'll end up with nothing but information overload, frustration, and an empty bank account from failed fashion experiments! That's because it takes oceans of time and pure luck to find one DIY style video that gives you advice that is 100% specific to you...

Working with a personal stylist puts you on the fast track to discovering your unique style. Instead of 'hit and miss' frustration, it's a lot of fun and you're guaranteed success!

Let's take a deep dive into what you're paying for...

When you hire a personal stylist, you are paying for their expertise gained over many years and you are also paying them for style and fashion advice that is specific to your features, height, body shape and size. In < 2-3 hours you'll know exactly 'what to wear' to express your own personal style in a way that makes you happy from the inside out!

But that's not all...

Showing you 'what to wear' is only 50% of the job! The other 50% is helping you source the right styles because what's the point of knowing 'what to wear' if you don't know 'where to buy' the right clothes? And...

A professional stylist will advise you whether you should buy off-rack clothes or whether customized or tailormade clothes are best for you!

HOW TO CHOOSE A PERSONAL STYLIST...

Are you ready to embark on a fun and rewarding journey to 'discover your personal style'? Here's a checklist to help you select the best personal stylist for your needs...

Personal Stylist Checklist

Don't choose a personal stylist that relies on pictures in magazines/google or what's in your closet to teach you what you need to know! If what's in your closet made you look and feel great you wouldn't need a stylist!

Essential!!! A professional personal stylist can access a wide variety of pre-curated styles, fabrics, textures and accessories in your size so you can explore and experiment in real-time, in front of a mirror. 

The best personal stylists are also trained 'fit specialists'. This means that in addition to having access to a wide variety of styles in your size they also have technical skills similar to a fashion designer. These extra skills come in handy — especially for plus size, petite, long torso or curvy/large women — because 'fit specialists' can use draping techniques to show you a desired result that might mean customized or tailormade clothes are best for you

The best learning experience and environment, and the best value for money is one where you, the clothes and your stylist are all in one place. If you have to go from shop to shop to try on clothes it's not only exhausting, but the whole process is disjointed too!

Remember, your personal stylist is there to help you improve your confidence, not to judge you. There's no need to dress to impress or be nervous. The best part of working with a stylist is that you can relax and just be yourself. If you place yourself in their hands, working with a stylist will help you shine!

It's important to clarify your goals with your stylist at the beginning and make sure the person you choose has lots of experience with other women of similar size, shape, age and life-stage. The stronger the match the better the outcome...

Some boutiques — like LoveIt Atelier Boutique Hong Kong offer a range of styling services and transformation packages. The benefit of booking a personal styling service in a boutique is that everything you need to discover your personal style is in one place so you maximize the time spent on experimenting and exploring different looks

The other big benefit is that you don't need to go anywhere else to buy the best clothes. Some boutiques, like LoveIt, also offer fashion makeovers and have a bundled package that includes working with the best personal stylists AND buying new clothes. If you don't see it on their styling services list you should always ask...

Shana Hurrell A Personal Stylist Review

Motivating, Educational & Absolutely Fabulous!

I was fortunate to meet Catherine and spent the best 2 hours discovering what to wear and what not to wear for my body shape - most importantly Catherine shares easy-to-apply style steps and has you feeling positive about your body shape in no time at all.

Before meeting Catherine... I used to shop thinking I had to cover my curves and the additional weight gain only to discover that the clothing I was purchasing was actually putting even more weight on ‘optically’ and “yes” I felt this - I felt frumpy and uncomfortable with no style. After years of shopping this way, I ended up with a wardrobe with no real style and no direction and wardrobe disappointment as I spent time trying to find something to wear that I felt “okay” in

After meeting Catherine... I now know my body shape and embrace it. With colour and style matching and tips and tricks, I watched, with my own eyes, my shape and size change by at least 2 sizes “optically” - I am the same curvy gal I was when I walked in but now I’m owning it and loving how I look - I really cannot remember the last time I truly felt this way. Catherine’s style eye is on point - she was able to work with me and understood what suited my lifestyle and ensured I could take it away and apply. The best thing is that transformation can happen immediately with what you learn.

I walked in feeling frumpy and left feeling “fabulous”. Watch out World!!

How much does a personal stylist cost?

Most personal stylists charge an hourly rate. You can expect to pay over HK $1000/hour for a professional personal stylist in Hong Kong...

Is that expensive?

By the time you add up all the money you've spent on clothes you never wear you'll quickly realize that spending 2-3 hours discovering your personal style with a professional stylist will pay for itself before the end of the session - it's great value for money. And that's before you calculate the value of the confidence boost you'll receive!

Don't think of it as an indulgence that only trend-obsessed women benefit from. Instead, think of it as an investment in your personal well-being. Every woman deserves to feel self-confident in her appearance, don't you agree?
