Do you need a fashion consultant? What is a fashion consultant? And what can a fashion consultant do for me that I can’t get by purchasing a fashion blogger’s looks?
Do you need a fashion consultant?
The answer is you don’t necessarily need a fashion consultant – just like you don’t necessarily need an accountant, a manicurist, or a housekeeper. However, you hire a fashion consultant to make your life easier.
Dressing for women is always about fitting in. If you’re going to a party you don’t have to be the best dressed, however, you don’t want to be the worst dressed either. If you’re going to a mom’s brunch with socialites, you want your outfit to look nice, fashionable, and wouldn’t it be great if people complimented you on your outfit too?!
And why is it that there’s always a group of moms that dress the same? Because like attracts like and they like what each other is wearing.
If you’re more into wearing your own style, there’s nothing wrong with that. However, if you’re rubbing elbows with the American elite, you bet they’re looking at what you’re wearing even if it’s casual. In those instances, you want to dress casually elegant or classically elegant. Don’t know what that is? That’s when it’s best to enlist the help of a fashion consultant – a fashion consultant online or in-person.
Even if you live in California and the vibe is more casual, trust us, Silicon Valley moms and women are always looking at what other women are wearing – just like in Dallas, Boston, or Greenwich. Think of clothing as your armor and it’s best to be armed with the right outfits!
Don’t know where to start? That’s when you hire an image consultant or a fashion consultant – a fashion consultant online or in person.
What is a fashion consultant?
A fashion consultant does not tend to have as formal of training as an image consultant. However, that doesn’t matter as much when your goal is to look stylish! You want the eye and the taste of a fashion consultant who can guide you through what looks stylish yet still fits into your elite circle of friends.
A good fashion consultant should be able to understand your style personality, then be able to weave in some looks that are trending so that you look stylish and up to date.
Fall 2021 trends include:
- puffed sleeves
- cutout tops or dresses
- 3-piece matching sets
- plaid tweed outfits
- bright colors
As fashion consultants we know that bright colors are not for everyone…therefore leave it to fashion experts to weave in wearable trending items into your wardrobe so that you don’t look ridiculous or waste your money.

What can a fashion consultant do for you versus a fashion blogger?
Fashion bloggers post outfits that they like. They post their style that hopefully you like and click on the link to purchase. If they don’t run in the same social circles as you or lead the same kind of lifestyle, then their style may not be on par with your style. Or their style may not suit your needs. Sure, it’s fine to purchase a one-off dress or shoes that a fashion blogger wears, however, are their outfits going to be suitable for dinner or drinks with your friends? That’s why you work with a fashion consultant. Fashion consultants should be able to visualize your lifestyle – know the types of places that you frequent, what type of people attend, and what’s socially acceptable to wear.

Here’s what some of our clients have to say
…I reached out to Michelle again 8 years later in 2019. It was definitely worth my time and money to spend 1.5 days with her in New York to refresh and replenish my wardrobe. Since our last session 2 years ago, I have worked with her using the SHOP + SHIP + STYLE virtual styling service to add new items to my wardrobe as well as beach vacation clothes. As always, I love what she picks for me… Read more “Brent’s Testimonial”
…Since then, we moved to the L.A. area. And she’s done the same process for me in L.A. and Orange County, maneuvering through my weight changes from size 12 to 2 and stabilizing at size 8/10…difficult for us to sync up our schedules, so she started working with me virtually. I’ve been using her SHOP+SHIP+STYLE virtual styling service for the last 5 years to fill in the gaps in my wardrobe and for vacations. I did try Nordstrom’s Trunk Club for a bit, but I canceled it… Read more “Katie’s Testimonial”
Working with Michelle is definitely an investment, but a good one…the reason why I continue to work with her is because I only get compliments when I’m wearing the outfits that SHE picks. It’s been 3 years since my first consultation with her and I scheduled a follow-up half-day personal shopping session with her because who doesn’t like compliments? I think I’ll schedule a virtual closet edit with her next. Read more “Karen’s Testimonial”
Michelle is really great with colors. I definitely recommend getting a personal style analysis with her to review your colors. In fact she’s so good with color she help me defined the color scheme of my home, the color scheme of my business brand identity, as well as my best colors for my own personal brand. She put colors together in my wardrobe that I would’ve never put together, but it looks great! Read more “David’s Testimonial”
Going through an online closet edit and virtual wardrobe styling session with Michelle was cathartic. She helped decide which items I should release to simplify my wardrobe and my life…I had a $2000 budget for clothes shopping, however we only spent $1350. Michelle was amazing about selecting stylish clothes that made me look current and put together within my budget. Read more “Michelle’s Testimonial”
…it was easier just to work with her through the Global Image Group shop, ship, style Virtual Styling Service method. She’s been great about advising me on how to upgrade my style for on and off camera occasions – and generally just educating me on style and how to develop my own style. I highly recommend her if you’re looking to work with someone who is really knowledgeable about fashion, professional yet fun to work with. It will be one of the best investments you make in yourself… Read more “Deanna’s Testimonial”
