Hello my lovelies! Hope you are well?
On Monday I visited John Lewis in Oxford for a personal styling session. Personal styling is something that I have been really interested in for a long time- I did a course last year at the Fashion Retail Academy and fell in love with the process. However I’d never actually had a personal styling session done on me, so I was so excited to do this with John Lewis!
A little bit about what the styling session is like with JL:
They offer five different types of styling sessions including, the perfect jeans, wardrobe refresh and holiday. The session is completely tailored to your needs, there is no obligation to buy anything, the session is free and really it is all about you!
When I arrived I met Mechac who is the #StyleGuru ( give him a follow on his instagram: @jl_mechac for some womenswear and menswear inspo) he was amazing and made me feel so comfortable and excited to try something new.
For me, I wanted to try pieces that I wouldn’t normally wear and get me out of my fashion comfort zone (which involves many shades of black/ brown/ grey… I needed some colour in my life!)
One of the benefits of having a styling session in a department store is all the different collections. John Lewis have concessions for all types of people and their fashion personalities. My favourite collections were John Lewis and partners, Kin and Reiss.
John Lewis own range had amazing colour palettes, I loved all the tonal looks and the pop of colour products. Kin has modern, timeless pieces that are high quality- I loved the bags. Then Reiss is an all time favourite of mine for the combination of classic, high quality pieces.
Back to the session! Mechac created many outfit looks for me to try and it was so inspiring! I got to put on looks that I never would have and fell in love with them. Throughout the next week or so I am going to post on my instagram all the looks that Mechac put together and I will tag the items on my 21 Buttons account so you can shop the looks too!
Overall, if you have never had a personal styling session before I cannot recommend going to John Lewis enough. It’s a fantastic way to improve your confidence and get you out of your comfort zone. By going to John Lewis you get so much choice and also a tailored, personable experience. We all need a bit of self love now and again, why not treat yourself!
If you have any questions about the experience or want to know more please DM me on instagram. I love hearing what you guys think. Thank you for reading, speak soon, Hannah xxx
