Updating their wardrobe each season is more than just a fashion trend; it's a lifestyle choice that promotes self-expression, confidence, and adaptability. Embracing the opportunity to redefine their style, stay on trend, and make a positive impact on the environment (and their wallet) by extending the life of their clothes is something every client wants.
While the idea of revamping their closet each season might seem like a daunting task, it comes with a myriad of benefits that go beyond just looking good (but you already know this!).
How does it work? First, you'll have a virtual meeting to review your client's wardrobe. Then you can discuss looks and silhouettes you recommend for your client's body shape and lifestyle for the season. From there you will create a style board and create a custom shopping list. After they have made any purchase they want to you will have a final virtual style session.
How much should you charge for a Closet Cleanse? We say a normal seasonal refresh takes up to eight hours. So your hourly rate X8! That being said, not all projects are cookie cutter. So we suggest covering the amount of looks and items they desire for the next season. From there you can let them know you will get through as much as possible in the designated timeframe or suggest a larger package with more hours.
What is expected of you? This styling service includes an initial virtual meeting, building of style board(s), shopping for suggested products to purchase, and a last virtual styling session.
Here is a helpful question to ask your client prior to starting the job: Prior to your virtual meeting ask them to prepare any outfits they love, ones they are looking for help with, and any inspo they love. They can share all of these with you by uploading photos or try them on at the initial meeting.
Why do clients do it? Well that is no short answer. So.. now let's dive into the reasons why updating your wardrobe each season is not only a style statement but also a smart and empowering choice.
We know YOU as a stylist know these answers, but sometimes it's good to get into the thoughts of your potential clients. That way you can not only understand where they are coming from, but also empower them to be excited about their choice to work with you.
So let's get into the reasons why!
Stay on Trend: Fashion is ever-changing, and each season brings a new set of trends and styles. Updating your wardrobe ensures that you stay in tune with the latest fashion movements. This doesn't mean you have to overhaul your entire collection, but incorporating a few key pieces each season can instantly refresh your look and keep you on trend.
Express Your Evolving Style: As we move through life and all the phases of it our bodies change, what we feel comfortable in changes and so do our tastes and preferences. Updating your wardrobe allows you to reflect your evolving style and personality. Experimenting with new colors, patterns, and silhouettes helps you discover what resonates with you at that moment, allowing your wardrobe to be a true representation of your current self.
Adapt to Seasonal Changes: Seasons bring not only changes in weather but also shifts in fashion requirements. Updating your wardrobe with seasonal essentials ensures that you are well-prepared for every season. From lightweight fabrics and vibrant colors in summer to cozy knits and closed toe shoes in winter, adapting to the season not only enhances your comfort but also showcases your fashion prowess.
Boost Confidence: Wearing well-fitted, on trend outfits can significantly boost your confidence. When you look good, you feel good, and this positive energy reflects in your demeanor. Regularly updating your wardrobe keeps you feeling fresh and enthusiastic about your appearance, ultimately contributing to a more confident and empowered you.
Extend the Lifespan of Your Clothes: Buying well made essentials and adding in key pieces can make getting dressed easier and allow for more wear of each piece. This not only saves you money in the long run but also promotes sustainability by reducing the need for constant replacements or more pieces.
Cultivate a Capsule Wardrobe: Regularly updating your wardrobe encourages you to curate a capsule wardrobe – a collection of versatile, timeless pieces that can be mixed and matched effortlessly. This minimalist approach not only simplifies your daily outfit choices but also ensures that every item in your wardrobe serves a purpose and aligns with your personal style.
