Why Copying Someone's Style to a T Isn't A Good Thing
We know that’s it’s impossible to be just like somebody else and it would be a failed attempt to try, so why do we try to do that with other people’s style?
One of my favorite things about Jackie’s styling team is that each person has a distinctive and unique style. That makes a lot of sense doesn’t it? For a team of stylists to all have different styles? It absolutely does and here is why. As each new client comes in, they are assigned to a stylist based on certain factors, one being their current or desired style. Once we get an idea of the kind of style that they have and want to enhance or don’t have and want to attain, they become a client of the stylist who has a similar style because, inevitably, that stylist will be the most successful at helping that client.
The art of styling would be lost if all a stylist did was replicate their own wardrobe, throw it into a box and call it a day. A stylist should be armed with skills and tactics to personalize a woman’s wardrobe; to take a certain style and suggest pieces that will make her wardrobe fully her own, because no one wants to be wearing the same exact thing as someone else. That’s not true style. That’s just copying and it doesn’t take any skill.
At Jackie, we teach you how to have your own sense of style. We teach you how to put your personalized, unique twist on each outfit you choose to wear. You might like an overarching and broad style such as classic or edgy, but you can put an edgy spin on your classic taste or vice versa. This is our favorite way to make your style your own. This is what makes you distinguishable and different.

We know that’s it’s impossible to be just like somebody else and it would be a failed attempt to try, so why do we try to do that with other people’s style? Save yourself the embarrassment and the time because let’s be honest, it’s tough keeping up with someones every style move and to replicate each piece in their wardrobe. It’s just not worth it. You’re equipped with your own set of tastes, preferences and talents, so live into them and bring them to life with your own wardrobe.
Take inspiration, but refuse to copy. You have a different body type, different hair color, perhaps even different financial situation and we know that. That’s why we want to help you enhance or attain a style of your very own. You start off by answering a few questions with our style quiz. We chat on the phone to get to know you and then the magic happens. We begin curating your box and pulling styles that we know you will love. It’s the beginning of a beautiful relationship; one we are so excited to start with you! We don’t want you to feel like you have to have it all together, because you don’t! We do want you to feel like you have a support system in Jackie; one that is dedicated to helping you curate your own style, one that is fully yours.
