Since the ancient times variety and diversity in clothing was poor. At some ages coloring was limited, at some - the fabrics were hard and expensive to get, at some point "fashion" meant "men ONLY". So here we stand in the 21st century and can get whatever we want, nobody is gonna execute us for having pants on or gossip on us if our hair is not setup. So, what do we want?
You are a puzzle!
We might know our figure type. Good. But that's not enough for calling your today look a LOOK ;). We might know our face shape and get a haircut what suits it. Wonderful! Still, it's too little. We can find out our colors that work for us. Oh, with only that we can happily live for years! However, we are still somehow not complete and we still have a problem of "nothing to wear" while if we only dare open our wardrobes, then all this "nothing" jumps right on us.
Can we solve it?
Why is that so many people have that problem, when magazines, internet and all kind of information is around us...?
The answer is right here. Exactly: "ALL KINDS OF.." - we've got total freedom. And it's hard because there is too much of EVERYTHING. You need to consider a lot of things at once to be able to create a look.
Is it enough to be your own stylist?
Of course we all get dressed in the morning.
Let's take that example of you separately knowing your figure type, your colors, your face shape and so on. To us, stylist, people seems quite often as a mosaic of these different elements, because these elements are not CONNECTED and not UNITED in the LOOK.
Another mistake - is outgoing from the magazines, fashion, bloggers and the internet but not from your own individuality. Then we see a look that is supposed to belong to one person, being worn by another individual. They simply mismatch.
And so we, ordinary people are "reads" the person based on this mismatch. Between us stylists we have a saying about this: "If you'd pull on the uncombined, then pls expect the unpredictable".
Thus. people can have hard time matching to the situation, "never is casual enough" or "always too business-like at the events" and so on. We really need to make people focus on us correctly to be able to get that project at work or the guy at the bar ;), or even get medical help - like this social experiment video made in Paris: is proof that it can even be dangerous not to pay enough attention to your appearances
Mistakes that cost your money:
Although some think the stylist would be just a waste of money and that they wouldn't offer any new alternatives... Here is a brilliant example of a set I've found on the internet where I'll show why stylists are useful! Look at the pic:
But then (I guess since the author's logic is "it is supposed to be an office look") he adds this clutch. So that together with that coat, we get "a small girl who has stolen her mom's shoes". Mismatch again.
If you have a keen eye for lines (architects would easily understand me;), you'll see this huge mismatch in the lines of the bag and the coat. And for everyone - psychology would work: This bag would belong to Catharine Zeta Jones type of women with a heavy look in their eyes - they know their stuff, they are direct, wonderful bosses, their sensitivity is different - definitely not like a girl with dreamy eyes wearing this coat!
All these 3 different women are worth-loving but they are soooooo different. Seeing that set now, we don't really know WHO is standing in front of us...
...the professional stylist wouldn't leave this look uncompleted even color-wise without smth with both beige and black, like a bag or shoes or scarf...

Why me and what benefits will you get?
I know all this because I have been professionally trained in both David Kibbe's typology that was invented 30 years ago and Dwyn Larsson's typology of 2012. I know what psychological character is behind each clothing or acessory item plus what image colors are creating, and so on.
You would get to know the secrets!
