The Psychology of Clothes: Teen Client Unboxing, Part II

Hi Everyone,  People are usualIy surprised when I tell them that as a Personal Stylist I not only have the opportunity to work with women and men, but that I also style teens.  What a lot of you may not know about me is that I have a Master's Degree in Psychology and my pre-styling career included working with at-risk youth.

Whether we are conscious of it or not; our clothing, getting dressed and how we feel about how we look is an emotional and mental experience.  Even those of us that hide behind comments like, "I don't care what I look like", or "Who cares what I wear".  Those statements say a whole lot about how we see ourselves, and how we choose to show up in the world.

So when people ask me questions about working with teens such as, "Why is it helpful at that age?" and "Isn't it excessive for a teenager to have a Stylist?", my answer is this... Being a teenager is when we first really start to understand how we fit in the world.  It's a time that sets the foundation for how we feel about ourselves and our bodies.  How we feel in our clothes has a direct correlation to our level of confidence, which in turn can effect how we do in school and life both socially and academically.  I have found in my work with my teen clients, that it is extremely helpful to have the help of a Personal Stylist at a young age.  A Stylist experienced in working with teens can teach them what works for their bodies, and help them create a foundation for confidence that will benefit them throughout life.

In today's post, you'll find Part II of my teen client haul and unboxing video.  This is for a 17 year old teen client of mine.  I've included links below to everything in the video for easy purchase.  In case you missed Part I, you can see it here.
