I am passionate about inspiring and helping women gain confidence in their style. When I work with clients, I help them do so much more than simply choose what clothes to wear. I help them to express themselves and dress in a way that not only compliments their body shape and colouring, but more importantly; their lifestyle and personality too. My personal styling services will help you understand what looks good and feels great on you.
Whether you require an outfit for a special occasion, a wardrobe edit and/or a shopping trip for the coming season, I provide practical, honest and expert advice to help you make outfit selections that not only look fabulous on you, but suit your personality, lifestyle, budget and also compliment your existing wardrobe.

1) Wardrobe Edit
Most women only wear 20% of their wardrobe 80% of the time. The Wardrobe Edit is a great way to refresh your wardrobe and turn that percentage around allowing you to see your clothes in an entirely new light.
A Wardrobe Edit lasts around 3-4 hours and includes:
- A review of what you already have, what you no longer need, and what can be added to a shopping list to fill the gaps in your existing wardrobe.
- I will show you how to put together outfits in a way that flatters your body shape and represents your personal style.
- Reorganising your clothes resulting in a fresh and de-cluttered wardrobe.
Investment: £200* for a 3-4hr session. Additional hours can be booked for £50 per hour.
*Additional costs will incur to cover travel beyond North Essex/Suffolk borders.
2) Personal Shopping
Whether you want to update your current wardrobe with seasonal trends, discover the basics to build a capsule wardrobe, or find the perfect outfit(s) for an upcoming event or holiday; your personals shopping trip will be tailored to suit your needs.
A Personal Shopping trip lasts around 3-4 hours and this is what you can expect:
- You’ll discover new brands or styles that you may have previously dismissed or not had the confidence to try.
- I’ll offer practical tips that will help you improve your personal style and gain a deeper understanding of what pieces work well together.
- You’ll take home stylish new purchases that you will be confident to know how to wear well.
Investment: £250* for a half-day shopping trip in Colchester/Chelmsford/Ipswich.
* Additional costs will incur for travel to areas such as London, Norwich, Bluewater or Lakeside.
3) Shop and Deliver
I will shop (online) for you and hand deliver outfits based on a specific brief.
In this way you can try-on clothes in the comfort of your own home, and I will be on-hand to suggest how to style and combine the outfit pieces with your existing wardrobe.
Investment: £150* includes 1 hour of my time in your home to run through the outfit selections. Additional hours can be booked for £50 per hour.
*For clients based in the Colchester area only
4) Colour Analysis
I have been trained by the London College of Style to analyse your ‘seasonal colours’ to help you select clothes that harmonise with your skin, hair, eyes and personality. Wearing the right colours will enhance your natural beauty, improve skin tone and ultimately help you look and feel amazing.
Other benefits of having your colours analysed:
- Shopping becomes easier – you will be able to go directly to the colours that you know suit you
- Your wardrobe will coordinate better
- You will have increased confidence from knowing that the colours you wear are the most flattering for you

Over the last few years I have lost my style spark. Claire has given me the confidence to wear colour again and try new outfit combinations. I feel so happy with my wardrobe now – especially as I didn’t have to buy a whole new one and have re-worked many of my existing items. I’ve got loads of new outfit ideas – I can’t recommend Claire enough! Laila
As a busy working mum of three, coupled with dropping two dress sizes in recent years, I found I had “lost my way” with my wardrobe and style. I had many items that didn’t fit anymore, and now with my new size and body shape, I had really lost confidence in what suited me and where to shop. Claire was just brilliant! After a couple of hours going through my wardrobe, Claire very quickly, with an honest but sensitive approach, sifted my clothes and I began to learn about the clothing styles that suit my body shape and some “do and don’ts”. We then sat down to work through priority items to purchase. The shopping trip was great fun too! Claire introduced me to a number of shops and styles that I would never have considered previously. Overall it was a very positive experience and have found myself feeling more confident both in myself and what I wear. Receiving many compliments since too. I cannot recommend Claire and her styling service highly enough. Rebecca
I thoroughly recommend Claire’s personal styling services. My wardrobe is now organised and only contains items I love to wear. Forgotten clothes now have a new lease of life as Claire gave me lots of ideas as to how to style them. Our shopping trip was so much fun! Claire gave me the confidence to try outfits that I’d never have opted for myself as well as selecting clothes that compliment those I already have. I’ve had so many lovely compliments since and now it’s a pleasure getting dressed in the morning! Joanne
