The Art of Wardrobe Curation: Why Women Excel in Styling Men

3 minutes read

When it comes to curating a man’s wardrobe, the unsung heroes are often women. While many men may initially feel that they are the best judges of their own style (although our clients will definitely say otherwise) there are compelling reasons why women, be they partners, friends, or professional stylists, excel in this role. In this blog, we’ll delve into why women are the best people to curate a man’s wardrobe.

  1. A Fresh Perspective

One of the primary reasons women make excellent wardrobe curators for men is their ability to provide a fresh perspective. Men can sometimes get stuck in a style rut, repeatedly reaching for the same outfits or failing to experiment with new looks. Women, with their different tastes and fashion sensibilities, can introduce fresh ideas and help men step out of their comfort zones. Simply put, they won’t push their own style tastes onto you and will be purely objective. Needless to say, you have to like their sense of style and taste and feel like it’ll be in tune with what you like to wear.

  1. Attention to Detail

Women often have a keen eye for detail, which is crucial when it comes to curating a wardrobe. They notice the small nuances in colour, fit, and fabric that can make or break an outfit. This attention to detail ensures that a man’s wardrobe is not only stylish but also well-coordinated and versatile.

  1. Understanding Personal Style

Understanding a man’s personal style is an art, and women often excel in this department. They take the time to get to know the individual, their preferences, lifestyle, and even their insecurities when it comes to fashion. This understanding allows women to curate a wardrobe that reflects the man’s personality and boosts his confidence.

  1. Versatility and Mixing

Women are known for their ability to mix and match clothing items to create versatile outfits. Blending less expensive items with expensive ones to create a creative wardrobe that doesn’t look one dimensional. They also can turn a few key pieces into numerous stylish ensembles. This skill is invaluable when curating a wardrobe, as it ensures that a man has outfits suitable for various occasions without a closet full of clothes. Thus making life a whole lot simpler!

  1. Honesty and Constructive Feedback

Women are often known for their tactful honesty. When curating a man’s wardrobe, they can provide constructive feedback and gently steer him away from fashion choices that might not be flattering. Their objective input helps men make informed decisions about their clothing. Once I was asked if I could make someone look like Beckham. I said if I could do that for every man that asked I’d be a billionaire! Needless to say, I believe that women have the ability to tune into a man’s own sense of style, personality and lifestyle to look more attractive, confident and self assured in their own, authentic way. 

  1. Keeping Up with Trends

Fashion trends come and go, and it can be challenging for men to stay updated. Women, on the other hand, tend to be more attuned to these trends. They can guide men on which trends to embrace and which to avoid, ensuring that their wardrobe remains stylish and relevant. 

  1. Confidence Boost

Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of having a woman curate a man’s wardrobe is the confidence boost it provides. When a man feels confident in his appearance, it positively impacts various aspects of his life, from personal relationships to professional success.


In the world of fashion, women often shine as natural wardrobe curators for men. Their fresh perspective, attention to detail, understanding of personal style, versatility, honesty, trend awareness, and ability to boost confidence make them invaluable partners in the quest for a stylish and functional wardrobe.
