Virtual Stylists Are A Thing


You’d be lying if you said that you’ve never once wished that you had a personal stylist on demand. Whether you’re fashionable or not, sometimes you just want someone to tell you what to do, particularly, on a Monday morning.

Whether you’re dying to always be up to date on the latest trends, or only shop out of necessity, everyone could use a stylist: whether it be on a regular basis, or every once in a while.

Unfortunately, personal stylists are particularly expensive. Not everyone can afford the luxury, and that must be the reason why not everyone has the option of utilizing such a thing.

Now, those of you who’ve always wanted a stylist, but could never afford it (or did not know that it was accessible to you), have a new technology available to them: virtual styling.

There’s a new site called TopShelf, through which you input your shopping history and get a personalized must-have list of coordinating items you should buy to go with each past purchase. Maybe you even have certain items in your closet, and just don’t know how to put them together.

The suggestions all come from bona fide stylists, and I’m telling you, it’s legit. Another service similar to TopShelf is called Feyt.

Feyt has a curated database of the amazing fashion finds to brows through. Or, Keaton Row, which pairs you with your own personal e-stylist to figure out the ideal outfit for your hot date or family reunion.

Honestly, how amazing is this. Now, there’s no excuse to anyone saying they don’t know how to dress well. If there’s a will, there’s a way: and who doesn’t love the convenience of having a fashion expert fix your wardrobe while you sit at home, on the couch, in sweatpants?
