Buttons and Blazers

Personal styling used to be about celebrities and red carpets but now it’s something everyone can access. It’s not just about clothes, it’s about the power of those clothes to change the way you feel. When you love what you’re wearing it shows. You walk taller, smile more broadly, and feel a confidence that is noticed by everyone. That’s where Sam from Buttons and Blazers comes in.

Her aim is to help people to fall back in love with clothes by giving them the tips and tricks to truly understand their style, the colours and shapes that are best for them, and how to make the right choices when buying.

She wants to eliminate the ‘I have nothing to wear’ stress and put the joy back into getting dressed with services such as colour consultations and shape analysis to help you understand what works for you and why.

Sam also offers wardrobe edits to encourage you to let go of the pieces that don’t work and give you new ways to style the items you love. Personal shopping to fill the gaps you leave de cluttering sounds like a service we would love to try!

All these services are available for men and women and cater for any budget. Some are also available virtually.
