Why Fashion Stylists Love A Good Blazer

Why Fashion Stylists Love A Good Blazer

If you’re following fashion stylist’s, personal shoppers or an influencer you will notice they tend to have blazers on rotation for an outfit post, photo shoot or even their daily street style. You may ask yourself, why is a blazer so common with style guru’s? You may  be thinking it can be to formal or for a work event and not just not your personal style. BUT that is not the case – we as stylists love a great blazer for every style you can imagine!

What can a blazer do for your wardrobe & style? (And why we love to incorporate them into your wardrobe!)

  • A perfect fit blazer can create a waist for your shape.
  • If you’re wearing some old jeans & a t-shirt pop on a blazer and you’ve styled up your outfit.
  • Create a full suit with matching pants (add sneakers to dress down the overall look)
  • Want to create multiple outfits with the less is more philosophy? A classic blazer can create many looks by layering with everything in your wardrobe.
  • Don’t have a blazer? Start with finding a blazer that fits just right, go for black as your first choice, this colour will mix & match with everything.

Fashion Stylist | Dress For Your Body Type

September 13, 2019

One of the most common challenges I hear from potential clients looking to hire a fashion stylist, “I can’t find anything that fits my body type.” Insert the expert stylist, we specialize in knowing brands that work for a range of different body types and most importantly we know styling tricks to ensure your consistently featuring the most flattering areas of your body.

The first step to understanding your style is by knowing what your body shape is.

Once you have discovered what your body shape is,  you’re now one step ahead, making it easier to put outfits together.  I’ve shared a few generalized style tips below that could help.

*Balance fit, colour & prints of your outfit to work with your personal shape. This can create a visual, symmetrical overall look.

*Find outfits that downplay the area’s of your body type you feel uncomfortable about or know might not be as flattering.

*Find ways to enhance the areas you’re most confident about. Ex: Legs, wear cropped pants, skirts & dresses.

*Something as small as an accessory can really enhance certain body shapes, for example belts can create the look of a waist or enhance your waist

Stylist | Elevate Your Next Photo Shoot

September 13, 2019

Over the last couple of years, there has been a surge of work for photographers, with clients needing photos for website & business branding, LinkedIn updates, family shoots, social media and lastly, head shots for the always demanding local film industry.

For me, as a stylist, one of the most interesting parts about my job is seeing the elevation happen with clients. Taking their look & how they feel to the next level. When working on photo shoots, it happens in a instant. By putting clients into a new wardrobe that quickly has them feeling confident and looking fabulous really translates in their photos. Having the correct colour, fit and styling details may seem minor to some but I can confidently say will elevate the clients photos to the next level. I’ve shared some examples below to give you an idea, all recent work with local photographers.

Fashion Stylist | The Most Requested Look For Male Client’s

Fashion Stylist | The most Requested Look For Male Clients

September 13, 2019

A good number of Mabelle Style’s clients have a professional or business background. In regards to our male clients, I find they often work in a job that requires minimal time wearing suits, but they still are required to maintain a professional look. Insert the sports jacket. This has been a go-to look for a large percentage of my clients due to the fact that they are able to wear it to work as well as make it cool for evenings out. When I styled this photo shoot I was excited to share some pictures of this look, so often requested.

Style tip

Make sure you find a sports coat that fits! Meaning, have some shape at the waistline and the fabric should have some give to avoid feeling constricted when you do activities or when driving.
Dress up the sports jacket by adding a dress shoe or give a cool casual vibe by investing in a sneaker, such as this pair of Goodman sneakers.

Fashion Stylist | 1 Spring Outfit, 4 NEW Looks

September 13, 2019

One of the biggest challenges people have with their wardrobe is how to put outfits together. It can be difficult due to either having way to many clothes with-in the wardrobe, feeling overwhelmed not being able to tie everything together or they happen to be missing some key items that will pull outfits together with what they currently own. Or they just might need a brand new wardrobe…. whatever the case may be I like to suggest capsule wardrobes, when clients don’t have an overwhelming amount of clothes but just enough to create multi-functional outfits.  In my latest YouTube I wanted to share a fun Spring (trendy) outfit I added to my wardrobe but was able to re-purpose into 4 outfits. Check it out below! BACK TO BLOG LIBRARY

Normally, the month of April would be the beginning of the peak season for personal shopping.  Stylists tend to be quite busy between April – June as clients begin to sport some light weight Spring / Summer wardrobes.  Because things have shifted and times have changed recently, with our favorite stores all being closed the past few weeks, this has drastically altered how I (and many others) have adapted to work. A few of my clients have chosen not to wait for the stores to reopen and are using Mabelle Style’s Online Personal Shopping Package, I thought I’d share the breakdown and give you more insight regarding it’s 4 simple steps if your currently interested in working with a fashion stylist.

Step 1 – Client & Stylist discuss and create a personal shopping list for the season.

Step 2 -Stylist Proceeds to create a mood (pin) board to give the client a visual of the overall styles they will be working with.

Step 3 – Once the shopping list & mood board have been approved, the stylist will then gather together an email identifying each category from your shopping list. Under each category will be links to shop – depending on the time frame of your package you can receive anywhere from 5-25 items per category. Once the client has their shopping links, they can begin to
