MEET STYLIST KATIE W.

 MEET STYLIST KATIE W.

Meet New Yorker and SuitableYou personal stylist Katie W. In this edition of Meet The Stylist, we find out about Katie’s fashion icons, styling tricks and what her closet must-have item is.

What is your personal style?

I would say my style is ‘soft-edgy’. I love classic jeans and blouses, but am always looking to add leather pieces to make my outfit a little tougher.

Who is your fashion icon and why?

I find a lot of inspiration from celebrities. When you have an endless wardrobe budget, you’re sure to put together some pretty fierce outfits.  Sometimes I’m excited by young stars, like Selena Gomez, and other times I am inspired by more sophisticated looks, like Kerry Washington.

Where do you get style Inspiration?

NYC is full of innovative fashion choices. Not only is it home to some of the most powerful designers, but watching people on the street can spark just as much inspiration. I always want to look my best when strolling around the city.

Any trends you are obsessing over right now?

Right now, I’m obsessed with everything plaid. I am constantly trying to find new pieces to add to my wardrobe… and then add a pair of black mules to complete the look!

Do you have a favorite saying or style motto?

Black is ALWAYS in style!

MEET STYLIST KATIE W.

What is the best part of your job as a stylist at SY?

Shopping has always been one of my favorite hobbies, but I know lots of women don’t feel the same way. I love helping them fulfill their wardrobe needs. Their burden is my delight!

Styling trick?

When you find a piece of clothing that fits perfectly, buy it in every color!

What advice would you give Suitable You members to look and feel their best?

Accessories can be easy to forget, but they can complete a look. If you feel like your wardrobe has fallen flat, the solution may be as simple as adding a necklace and a fun pair of shoes.

What is the one article of clothing that everyone should have in their workwear closet?

A tweed blazer is always in style! It’s classic but trendy. Colorful, but subtle. And goes with everything in your closet.

What’s the one makeup item you can’t leave home without?

Sometimes I don’t have time to spruce up my day make-up before heading out at night.  Adding a lip color is a quick fix. I couldn’t live without Tarte Matte Lip Paint. I wear ‘Birthday Suit’ every day.

3 Fun facts about you?
  • I love traveling- my husband and I have visited 3 continents in the past 3 years!
  • This is my eleventh year as a classroom teacher. 🙂
  • New York City is my favorite city in the world. There is so much to see and experience. I’ve lived here my whole life, and it still surprises me.

A little black dress should always be hanging in your closet. It’s the perfect piece to go from work to dinner with clients; then drinks with friends.

Stylist Alyssa B.

Stylist Alyssa B.They keep you ahead of the style trends and answer your fashion questions. Our stylists is where all the magic happens and over the past couple of months, we’ve introduced you to our wonderful team of personal stylists. In this edition of Meet The Stylist, we caught up with our newest stylist Alyssa B. to find out about her style, inspiration and what she loves most about her job at SuitableYou.

What is the best part of your job as a stylist at SY?

The best part about being a stylist is knowing I’m helping busy women feel good about themselves when they need an extra hand with their work wardrobe.

What is your personal style?

I would consider myself conservative for work and boho/urban on my downtime. I really like to add a unique element to any outfit possible to show that I have my own style. It usually consists of a pair of shoes, bag or accent piece of jewelry.

Where do you get style Inspiration?

A lot of my inspiration is from storefronts, Pinterest, and magazines.

Any trends you are obsessing over right now?

I’m completely obsessed with high-waisted jeans, shorts or skirts.  I think anything that flatters the waistline makes the outfit! I’m also really into Birkenstock sandals because it makes any outfit look fashionably casual.

Stylist Alyssa B.

Do you have a favorite saying or style motto?

Never be afraid to rock that article of clothing that makes you different from everyone else.

What is the one article of clothing that everyone should have in their workwear closet?

I think everyone should have a few accent pieces in their closet. Whether it’s your baddest boldest heel or that colored bag that brings your outfit to life.

What advice would you give members to look and feel their best?

A lot of us busy ladies tend to rush when getting ready in the morning which can stop us from adding some flair to our outfits or feeling trendy. Train yourself to always add something a bit different to your outfit than what you wore the day before. Put on that necklace you bought but haven’t worn or the big tote bag in the back of your closet. It will help you to feel trendy and transitional.

What makeup item can’t you leave the house without?

My “No7 Radiant Glow Concealer”, I apply it every morning and it clears any blemishes and gives me a rested glow.

3 Fun facts about you?

I love to kayak, and my two-year-old son is a water baby so I just started to take him out in the mornings on the river with me, it’s our favorite hobby.

I’m extremely earthy, I truly believe you are what you eat so my newest obsession is gardening all natural fruits and vegetables. (Wish me luck!)

A perfect night for me would be a cute dress, heels and some Italian food with wine….yummmm.

Meet Stylist Brittany C.

 Meet Stylist Brittany C.

We’ve said it before – our stylists is where all the magic happens at SY! They keep you ahead of the style trends and answer your fashion questions, but have you ever wondered who the ladies behind the glamour are? Well, we’re giving you a sneak peek! In this edition of Meet The Stylist, we caught up with personal stylist Brittany C. to find out about her fashion must-haves and what her greatest accessory is.

What is the best part of your job as a stylist at SY?

I really enjoy giving our members tips and tricks on how to wear one piece in multiple ways. Also, working for a #GIRLBOSS like Gillian Brown is not a bad gig!

What is your personal style?

I’d profile myself as edgy chic. I love leather jackets paired with black denim.  Another go-to look for me is a white tee tucked into high-waisted jeans.

Where do you get style Inspiration?

Honestly, the streets of NYC are the perfect style inspiration. Also, my favorite blogger Something Navy is a more literal inspiration.

Any trends you are obsessing over right now?

I’m currently loving mom jeans, as well as all mule shoes.

Do you have a favorite saying or style motto?

“Just remember that ultimately, dressing is always about attitude, feeling comfortable, and confidence.” -Kate Moss

What is the one article of clothing that everyone should have in their workwear closet?

A white button-down is a workwear closet must have, and having two is a must! One more fitted for work and the other over-sized.

A fitted white button-down is a closet staple and a versatile piece that you can wear tucked into a pencil skirt, paired with your favorite slacks or under a blazer. The other over-sized white button-down is perfect to wear on the weekends with destructed boyfriend jeans.

What advice would you give members to look and feel their best?

I used to be the girl who had an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day. I’ve gotten into the mindset that today is a great day for a great outfit and it truly helps.  Don’t wait, wear the outfit!

What makeup item can’t you leave the house without?

I can’t live without the Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Stardust. It gives the perfect natural glow. I use it on my lips, cheeks, and eyelids. Even if I have no other makeup on, I’ll always have that.

3 Fun facts about you?

My hair is my greatest accessory.

I’m a huge Ellie Goulding fan, her voice is velvety.

I’m a cat lady without a cat. (I’m working on convincing my BF his allergies aren’t real.)

Meet Stylist Crystal C.

Our styling team is where all the magic happens. We love our stylists, and they love what they do. They answer your fashion questions and keep you ahead of the style trends, but have you ever wondered who the ladies behind the glamour are? We are lifting the curtain to give you a sneak peek into the hard-working women who curate your SuitableYou boxes. In this edition of Meet The Stylist, we sat down with Crystal C. to find out how life as a mom has changed her style and what her must-have items are.

What is the best part of your job as a stylist at SY?

The customer feedback. I love hearing how members fall in love with the pieces we send them, especially when it’s a piece they wouldn’t have considered when shopping for themselves. It’s also great learning that they find outfit inspiration from the style notes included in every box we send.

What is your personal style?

I love mixing different styles but I am a boho girl at heart. I love the carefree simple style. When the weather is warm, I gravitate toward maxi dresses and skirts.

As a new mom, my style has changed a bit. When I’m not working/styling, I’m running around chasing my twin babies, so I need clothes that are cozy yet stylish. Since I spend a lot of my time on the floor playing with the twins, my go-to’s are joggers pants with a cute cotton tee.

Where do you get style Inspiration?

I follow a lot of bloggers with different styles to get new ideas. I also love looking through fashion magazines for inspiration (who doesn’t?). With my favorite being InStyle magazine.

Any trends you are obsessing over right now?

Blush or pale pink is the must-have color. I incorporated this color into my wardrobe and even in my accessories and lip color.  

Do you have a favorite saying or style motto?

Wear what makes you feel good! Wear pieces that you love or have received compliments on.

What is the one article of clothing or accessory that everyone should have in their workwear closet?

A silver or gold long necklace. It’s an easy way to pull any outfit together. You can also wear a necklace with a little bit of color to make an outfit pop.

What advice would you give members to look and feel their best?

Be open to new styles and looks. Try on pieces you normally would not pick out because they could turn out to be your new favorite items.

What makeup item can’t you leave the house without?

I apply lip gloss probably 8 times a day – if not more. I have little time to put on makeup in the mornings, so I always make sure I have one of my favorite lip glosses in my purse.

3 Fun facts about you?

I‘m a mom to 9-month-old twins – a boy & girl.

I’m originally from California and love the hot weather.

I design and create my own jewelry.

SuitableYou Stylist - Percy J.

Our styling team is where all the magic happens. We love our stylists, and they love what they do. They answer your fashion questions and keep you ahead of the style trends, but have you ever wondered who the ladies behind the glamour are? We are lifting the curtain to give you a sneak peek into the hard-working women who curate your SuitableYou boxes. In this edition of Meet The Stylist, we sat down with Percy J. to find out about her personal style and what inspires her.

What is the best part of your job as a stylist at SY?

I love knowing the women I style wake up every morning ready to conquer their day in SuitableYou outfits. Knowing that I am making a difference in someone’s life by helping them look and feel better is rewarding. It’s also great to hear how someone I styled felt ready and confident for a meeting or an interview in their new clothes.

What is your personal style?

I don’t have a specific style. With me, it’s all about what mood I wake up in. That pretty much determines my outfit. I will go from girl boss in head-to-toe black to girly chic in greys and blush tones, to fun and playful in a dress. My style has definitely evolved over the years. 

I love distressed jeans and cardigans. Give me a pair of distressed jeans, a tee, and a blazer, and I’m set to go. And a cardigan is a great layering piece to throw over any outfit. My closet is full of them. I guess you can say that even as an adult I’m still playing dress-up. Clothes are fun, you don’t need to stick to a particular style.

Where do you get style inspiration?

I love to scroll through Instagram or flip through fashion magazines for style inspiration. On Instagram, you’ll find a great assortment of celebrity high-end fashion and girl-next-door bloggers.

Any trends you are obsessing over right now?

Over time, my style has evolved more towards classic pieces that will be in my closet long-term. I will only add one or two trendy pieces to my wardrobe each season. For the fall, I’m loving the rich burgundy tones, velvet shoes, and suede jackets.

Do you have a favorite saying or style motto?

“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” – Rachel Zoe

What is the one article of clothing that everyone should have in their workwear closet?

I think a black blazer is definitely a must. It is a classic piece that will never go out of style. It’s so versatile. You can pair it with just about anything – trousers, dresses, skirts, or jeans.

What advice would you give members to look and feel their best?

It’s great to experiment with new styles, but wear whatever is comfortable and makes you feel good. Sometimes we can get lost in keeping up with all the trends and end up wearing something we’re not comfortable in. When you’re comfortable in your clothes, you feel more confident.

What makeup item can’t you leave the house without?

I’m definitely a mascara type of gal. I can leave the house with no makeup on – aside from mascara.  It will always be a must for me. Mascara really makes your eyes pop. I love it!

3 fun facts about you?

I was born in Costa Rica.

I’m a mama to a happy and active little boy.

I like to snowboard.
