What’s an Online Stylist?

Kryssie Spence

An online stylist is a service where a team will customize your look, comfort and self confidence. Whether the stylist is emailing you a lookbook or asking you to fill out some questions, the number one goal is to make you look and feel fashionable—without you ever doing any of the work. They want to find what suits you. Michelle D, an online stylists for Stitch Fix said in a recent interview, “Whether it be for a job interview, family vacation or an upcoming wedding, it’s an amazing feeling knowing that I get to help them look and feel their best for those special moments.”

We live in a new age where we’re just too busy to spend time shopping, and we can now order many things online: food, wine, beauty products—we can even find a date with just one swipe. So why not have your very own personal stylist? Let’s face it, we have a lot going on, from running a family, working crazy office hours, and of course going to the gym—it’s hard to keep up with every fashion trend that comes out. We all want to look chic and fresh and you might be thinking that an online stylist just isn’t in your budget. 

Well, you’re wrong. Fashion wrong!

Like us women, men need a little help picking out the right things to wear. Fashion Stork has the best new trends for men.

We all want to dress like Lauren Conrad and have her stylist on our call list. But that might be a little out of our budget. However, that shouldn’t stop you from looking just as good as her and everyone else on the red carpet. There are many online stylists that have amazing prices that won’t break the bank!
