This sale will be extremely busy and somewhat chaotic, so booking an appointment will help you navigate and find what you need in a fun and timely way.

Early Access to the sale for Nordstrom cardholders starts this Thursday, the 10th and goes through the 17th. This is typically when a lot of the best merchandise gets purchased!

Sneak Peek of Styled by Joelle

Hi guys! I’m so excited to finally share with you what I’ve been working on for the past couple of months! Ever since I started really getting into fashion, (participating in fashion shows, blogging, etc.) people have asked me when I was going to start styling, if I could help them shop, how do I find the best deals for the clothes I buy, and a plethora of other questions. As a person that was specifically interested in designing clothes, I wasn’t really sure if styling was for me, but after my boyfriend graciously allowed me to help style and update his wardrobe, I realized that styling was something I really enjoyed doing.

Over time, we subtracted pieces that weren’t current and/or fitting him correctly and added basics and versatile staples that complimented his body type and lifestyle. He expressed that he liked a clean, sophisticated, and simple look, which was relatively easy to create for him. As you all know, I’m a bargain shopper! Our main go-to store was Gap. I find that their men’s clothing is classic, of good quality and affordable. Because they always have a sale, it was super easy to begin building his new wardrobe on a budget.

My main goal of styling is that the client is confident and comfortable in their new clothes.

When you’re comfortable, you’re confident.

And when you’re confident, you always look great.

There are three primary categories of style that I targeted in his wardrobe: Chill, Play and Work. Below, I have examples of looks for each category.

For his casual wardrobe, we focused on finding the perfect pairs of straight, slim and even skinny jeans. We put more emphasis on the straight styled denim because it won’t go out of style, but picked up a pair of trendy skinny jeans because it worked well with his naturally tall and slender physique.

I find that v-neck t-shirts are flattering on most guys since it broadens their shoulders. Horizontal stripes are particularly flattering on a slender body type, as they draw the eye from left to right, which also gives a broader illusion. unnamed-11 unnamed-7



P L A Y



 It’s always fun to go out, so you should have clothes to have fun in. We added some color to this look by pairing burgundy pants with a two-toned graphic tee. It’s hard to find a cool graphic tee, but I suggest going to fast fashion stores like Zara or Topman like we did for a good deal. A nice non-athletic sneaker is essential to any man’s casual wardrobe. These grey Polo sneakers came from Nordstrom Rack for a deal. I love the brown leather laces they come with!

W O R K



 Business casual clothes are so important for any career man that intends to look successful and, more importantly, be successful. You need well-fitting, modern, and professional clothes that reflect your competence and work ethic. Below is a simple every day look that works for just about any professional work environment. A slim-fitted oxford shirt, corduroys, a nice sized silver Michael Kors watch, a leather belt and Clarks leather desert boots are just right for the office. It states, “I’m a well put together, confident man with a plan,” without you saying a word.

Impressions are important and your clothes do a lot of the talking. Be sure you’re conveying the right message!

unnamed unnamed-2 unnamed-3The desert boot is a unique type of boot because it can be worn with khakis, jeans, corduroys and more and they can dress your entire look up. They’re a good middle ground between casual and dressy while still a classic. I recommend these Clarks for any guy!
unnamed-21These are only a few of the many versatile looks that he can now implement into his daily life that make him look modern, polished, and stylish. With my guidance and expertise, he is now more educated on how to shop for himself  and find clothes that look great on his body type. I am so grateful that he trusted me to style him and update his wardrobe. He’s been so patient and open to my insight as my first client!

My Styled by Joelle business and website offers wardrobe makeovers, special occasion styling, and style clinic sessions for men and women at affordable rates. It’s set to launch soon, so stay tuned!
