Good wardrobe stylists keep the beautiful people looking beautiful. From styling models for fashion shoots and advertising campaigns, to dressing celebrity clients, you'll have a knack for accentuating the positive attributes of the people you dress. You'll need a lot of persistence to succeed in this career, and a good head on your shoulders, since you're likely to be running your own business.

Tip

  • The salary range for a wardrobe stylist is quite broad, ranging from $26,462 to $111,243 per year. The median comes in at $50,185, in 2018.

Job Description

Wardrobe stylists will style clothing so that it transform a person's outward appearance. That person might be a model or she might be a celebrity who needs the perfect look for a big event or fashion shoot. Or, she might be a regular person who needs one-on-one assistance from a personal fashion consultant. Typical duties include selecting clothes, assembling outfits slated for magazine features, keeping abreast of seasonal fashions, researching fabrics and accessories, as well as attending fashion shows. Clearly, a keen eye for fashion is a must, but good people skills are just as important. There's a lot of networking required in this job, and you'll be working with designers, photographers, models, celebrities, hair and makeup artists, as well as with publicists and the media.

For those who are working with private clients, getting professional certification from the Association of Image Consultants International may enhance your resume and may help you build a steady stream of clients.

Industry

Wardrobe stylists work in areas of the fashion industry that range from advertising and music video production to magazine features, movies and image consulting. Some may work exclusively with designers or public relations agencies. Working conditions vary, depending on the job role and employer, but flexibility is essential, as long hours, as well as working nights and weekends come with the territory -- and some wardrobe stylists travel extensively. Be aware that the job is not as glamorous as it sounds. Shopping for 10 hours a day may seem like fun, but it's not that appealing when you have a tight deadline and you must return the merchandise a few days later!
