Turn your closet into a place you love to go every morning by uncovering stylish, put together, and easy-to-wear outfits in your current wardrobe.
Right now, your closet feels overloaded from years of impulse buys, basics that’ve stacked up, or clothes from family and friends. To say the least, picking out your outfit each morning is stressful.
You’ve got a handful of pieces you know how to wear in a few ways, but as far as getting creative with the rest of the closet, you’re a little lost.
Pieces like patterned skirts, red pumps, a faux fur vest, a jumpsuit or a colorful blazer take a back seat to the basics you’ve used a hundred times.
Choosing an outfit with your current knowledge, lack of time, or lack of energy means going back to the same sliver of clothes you wear constantly and outfits you’ve recycled dozens of times.
But you’d like to use more.
You want to wear all of the pieces that could be handy and get rid of the rest.
In this 3-hour closet overhaul, we do exactly that. I style my way through your closet, so you know how to wear 100% of your wardrobe.
This Session Is All About
Giving your wardrobe a thorough evaluation to make sure it’s made up of pieces that suit your style, body type, and current lifestyle
Teaching you what types of colors compliment your skin, eyes and hair color, so you can shop for pieces in your palette going forward
Styling you from head-to-toe in pieces from your current closet, so you consistently use way more of what you have
Cleaning out the ill-fitting, outdated or unflattering items, so it’s easy to reach for items you know look good in every morning
Showing you my styling tricks along the way, so you can apply them to your wardrobe going forward
Making a shopping list to fill any holes and introduce you to new styles that would look great on you
Part 1: Pre-Session
Your personal style is exactly that: personal.
Which is why it’s so important for me to understand what your life looks like on a daily basis. Before we meet, I’ll send you two homework exercises: The Greer Style Profile and The Greer Style Boards. These assessments allow me to design our session around your unique life, upcoming events, and the image you want, so you get the most out of our time together.
Part 2: The Color Analysis
This is the foundation of all our work in the session, because the color analysis allows us to rule out the not-so-hot colors from your wardrobe and highlight the ones that look amazing on you.
Part 3: Personal Styling
We head into your closet to put your clothes to good use with outfits you’ll love to wear, but never imagined putting together.
I apply the same principle in this session as I do in my own closet: When you have fewer clothes in your closet and more outfits to work with, getting dressed is simplified, way more fun, and totally satisfying.
To do this, I simultaneously clean out as I style you.
Part 4: The Clean Out
I sort through the items that have seen better days, aren’t your style, or don’t fit your body type to make sure your wardrobe is filled only with pieces that serve you right now.
All the items you're ready to get rid of, I donate on your behalf to SAFE Austin, leaving you with a fresh feel in your old closet.
Part 5: Education
As I style my way through your closet, I talk through the styling techniques and concepts I use along the way. This allows you to not only see my process, but view your closet and clothing through a sharper lens.
You see your style through my eyes. This means the personal styling doesn’t just happen in our session. Teaching you how I do it along the way allows you to continue to style and use my tips long after I’m gone.
Part 6: Organization
Out of sight, out of mind is never truer than in your wardrobe, and if you can't see it, you won't use it. During our time together, I'll make little adjustments to your closet layout, so your wardrobe becomes more visually appealing and simpler to navigate any time you’re picking out an outfit.
Part 7: The Shopping List
While I’m a firm believe in fewer clothes, more outfits, sometimes holes need to be filled in your closet. That’s where the shopping list comes in; it’s your guide to knowing what helpful additions to buy. Pieces like a black pencil skirt, open-toe stacked heels, or a long, silver pendant necklace might be just the thing to elevate what you’ve already got in your wardrobe.
Part 8: The Greer Guide To Style
After we've completed your session, I'll send you a look book of all the outfits I've styled, so you can easily reference them in the future. Along with those, I'll send my Greer Guide to Style digital resource booklet filled with style hacks, closet tips, hairstylist recommendations, makeup artist recommendations, a tailor recommendation in your area, a list of items to be tailored from your wardrobe, my Greer VIP Austin discounts and more.
