Unlock Your True Style...

 Fashion is our first line of communication: What do you want to tell the world?

It's not What Not to Wear...It's about what you want to wear.

After nearly a decade in fashion, I've seen a lot of trends come and go. But there's one thing that's always in style: Being you. Whether you're starting over fresh or just need a little guidance, I'll help you capture your essence and express your truest you--not to mention, unteach you everything you've been told about what you should be wearing---all to reveal the style that lies within you, without weighing it down with ridiculous rules and fleeting fads. With my conscious and thoughtful approach to shopping, you'll not only be armed with the tools to dress your best, but to buy better moving forward, and build upon your new (or current) wardrobe with an eye for versatility, flexibility, and sustainability. 

 

You're not a disposable person, so why should you wear disposable clothes? Your Forever Wardrobe is meant to grow and change along with you, so, here at True Style, we avoid low quality, high-speed fashion at all costs. No matter your budget, whether we're shopping for more sustainable and responsibly made brands, independent designers, or combing secondhand stores: you deserve a closet that you can love for as long as you want to, and that helps you look exactly how you want to, not just how trends dictate you should.

 

My ultimate goal is to improve your relationship with clothing, which can, in turn, improve your relationship with yourself, your body, and even the world around you. I am proud to work with people of all genders and sizes, and I can accommodate all physical needs.  

HOW IT WORKS

21 QUESTIONS

The first step in my process toward unlocking (not creating) your truest, most personal style is focused on you: your lifestyle, your interests, your goals for your future, and your unique personality in order to build your Style Profile. I call this my "21 Question" System, but sometimes it only takes 10 questions...other times, it might take 50! True style comes from within, so let's get to know you first.

THE CLOSET AUDIT

When you struggle to get dressed day after day, and grow to resent the things in your closet, you may incorrectly come to the conclusion that you just don't have a personal style. No matter who you are, however, this just isn't true. The audit is where we look at what you have to figure out where you are and parse out what you think you need from what you actually need. Spoiler: you usually need less than you think!

YOUR STYLE GUIDE

I like to take notes. Sometimes a lot, sometimes a little. At the end of our session(s), I compile said notes into your PDF Style Doc, which includes a plan to maximize your current wardrobe and, depending on which service you've booked, shopping lists, moodboards, and styling tips. These documents tend to range from 5-30 pages. Consider it your personal guide to your personal style!

Testimonials

I booked a Closet Refresh with Lakyn and she did a great job! Lakyn figured out how to make the clothes I wear day to day align with my actual style with easy to follow suggestions. I'm telling all my friends :) -Kae

I have clothes, but I needed new ideas on how to mix, match, and accessorize what I already have. Lakyn is the answer! She listened to me and looked (virtually) through my closet. She sent moodboards and links that will help me to make smart purchases for the future and amp up my style. Highly recommended! -Nyasha

I cannot recommend Lakyn's services enough! I had been in a huge style rut, and Lakyn took the time to go through my closet, really listen to what I wanted, and gave me excellent recommendations for edits and additions to my wardrobe. I feel excited to get dressed again!! -Emily L

I had always wondered exactly what it was like to hire a stylist but never took the plunge until quarantine forced me to get rid of half my closet. Lakyn was so easy to work with, guiding me through figuring out my new style and what I actually needed to reflect it.... Read more.
