Meet Talleda, one of our San Francisco–based Stylists. Get to know her personal style, tips for transitioning into spring and even how to get your best Fix yet!
Q: What is the best part of your job as a Stitch Fix Stylist?
“I love every part of my job! From the clients I style to the people I work with. I love that I am able to connect with women all across the nation, offering them personalized styling advice—it’s such a fun part of my job! The relationships I build with my clients, and being able to help them feel and be their best selves, is what truly makes me happy and thrive at Stitch Fix.”
Q: How would you describe your personal style?
“I would say I’m a healthy mix of everything, and love experimenting with new styles and silhouettes as the seasons change. I love structure mixed with flowy pieces and fun pops of color. I find myself always adding an edgy element to my look whether it’s leather detailing or edgy accessories. Now moving into spring, I am excited to incorporate printed flowy maxis in my wardrobe with cropped structured jackets, and I am loving the ‘60s and ‘70s references I have been seeing all over fashion week.”
Q: What is your personal style mantra? Any tips or tricks to always looking and feeling your best?
“My personal style mantra is being comfortable in what you wear and what makes you feel good. You don’t have to have the most expensive pieces or follow the latest trends. It’s all about picking and choosing what works best for you, what flatters you and altering it to be your own. That in itself will always make you feel and look your best.”
Q: What advice would you give our clients for finding their personal style?
“Finding your personal style is tricky. My advice is to focus on the basics first. Start with a uniform; find pieces that flatter your figure and build up. Then, find variations of those pieces, but don’t be afraid to experiment and try new colors and silhouettes. You never know until you try!”
Q: What is the best advice you can give for getting a great Fix?
“My advice for getting your best Fix from your Stylist is being honest and open. If you don’t like something, let us know why. Was it the fit or the color, is it too trendy or not unique enough? Knowing the reason why you loved something or disliked it will really help us understand what works better for you! Also, always update your profile with any changes. Whether it’s color, style preferences or size, it is very important to let your Stylist know.”
Q: Give us a fun fact about yourself!
“I am a collector of vintage jewelry. I love unique pieces from various time periods and the stories behind them. I am just fascinated with how each piece represents a different era in history.”
Q: What is your favorite trick for transitioning your clients into spring?
“Layering! Just like we do with fall, but with lighter fabrics, different color stories and more relaxed fits. Even if it’s snowing where you live, you can layer a lightweight sweater over a thin long-sleeve top. Try a bold, printed coat in a relaxed fit over your outfit or throw on a fun scarf and a cozy winter jacket to complete the look! You can also incorporate a new color palette that works for the season—or If color isn’t your thing, try mixing black and white prints or have fun with texture. Spring is the perfect time to test out new styles and freshen up your look.”
