Chic Style: Personal Stylists
Whether you’re an avid shopper, or one who avoids the mall at all costs, shopping can be challenging for everyone. Perhaps you struggle to mix and match different patterns and prints. Maybe you’re never sure how to incorporate the season’s latest trends into your wardrobe. These are all issues that personal stylists encounter on a daily basis. It’s a popular misconception that personal stylists are extremely expensive, and that you have to search for one yourself. The good news is that this isn’t the case anymore. Did you know many retailers have their own in-house personal shoppers? This saves you, the shopper, time and money, while alleviating any stress! Below is a list of local retailers that offer personal styling services.
The J.Crew Very Personal Stylist is all about your convenience. The most noteworthy aspect of their service is that the stylist’s are available 24/7. Yes, that means they will keep the store open late or open it extra early if that’s what you need. The free service also provides free shipping for any items you purchase through an appointment with a stylist. To get started, email Erica@jcrew.com or call 800-261-7422.
Saks Fifth Avenue
The Saks Fifth Avenue Personal Stylist experience is aimed to ease the stress of finding the perfect outfit from the luxury retailer. This complimentary service’s goal is to help “coordinate your closet to enhance or re-invent your personal sense of style”. To contact a Saks Personal Stylist, simply email Stylist@s5a.com or call 1-888-458-7257. Once you get in touch with a stylist, you will discuss your needs and concerns. The Personal Stylist will then pull pieces based on your insights, and can even place your order for you.
