Closet Makeover

Is it better to have two stylists or one?

With two stylists, not only will the amount of time be shortened, but the experience tends to be more helpful. As one stylist is assisting you personally the other stylist is pulling the next outfit, photographing for your look book, or organizing your closet. Pricing remains the same, but you really do get more for your money.

Why do I need to edit my closet?

Editing helps to see where the holes in your wardrobe are. You may have 10 pairs of jeans (none of which you like) but if we didn’t edit them out of your wardrobe, you would never buy a new pair because you already have so many. You would continue to struggle with what jeans to wear!

What happens to items I do get rid of?

There are several venues for the items you decide not to keep. We can donate them, re-sell to consignment shops, store for future generations, or pack up for friends & family who may get more use out of them. If there are pieces you choose to re-sell, Lookstyle uses several professional sources to help you get the most money out of your items.

How do I know if my closet needs a makeover?

In our experience, a Closet Makeover and Edit is the FIRST step to fashion freedom and educating you on how to maintain your wardrobe. You can’t continue to build on a foundation that is not solid.

Do I have to get rid of all suggested edits?

We will never pressure you to “get rid of” or “throw away” any items that you don’t want to! The edit process is intended to help purge the pieces that are constantly hindering your getting dressed routine because they don’t fit, are out of style, or simply have been worn to death. By taking pieces out of your closet, you can really see what you own that you want to wear and “shop” in your closet more efficiently.

How often will my closet need editing?

A closet edit should be done on a quarterly or bi-annual basis. Most people do not have enough room to house all seasons in one closet so to make your daily routine the easiest it can be, Lookstyle will “flip” your closet from season to season to keep items that you will not be wearing out of the major real estate in your closet.
