The fashion industry is an ever growing industry. If you have a love for all things fashion, becoming an online fashion stylist may be something you’ve always dreamed of doing.
Online fashion stylists need to have skills that go beyond loving fashion. Other skills you must possess are
Strong listening and communication skills
A knowledge of the variety of body types
Understanding clothing such as fabrics and cuts
A customer-focused mindset
Being aware of every changing trends
What Do Online Personal Fashion Stylists Do?
It’s more than just keeping up to date on fashion trends. In simplest terms, online personal stylists help their clients discover their unique personal style.
As an online fashion stylist, you more than likely won’t ever meet or work with your clients in person. With that being said, you need to build a strong relationship with your clients to truly understand their needs.
You will put together personalized ‘looks’ for your clients and create a lookbook of all your suggestions. You want to not only make your clients look their best, but also feel their best.
You’ll need to be flexible, as you will work with clients who all have differing budgets they can spend on their new clothing. Your clients will also have varying tastes when it comes to fashion, so you will need to be knowledgeable on a wide range of styles for your clients.
Stylists also want to remember that accessories can be key in completing an outfit, so you may need to help your clients select accessories that match their style too.
