Hi, I’m Jennifer, I’m based in Southampton, where I live with my husband and young son.
I’ve always loved fashion and before I became a personal stylist, I was always the person who everyone came to for fashion advice or to borrow clothes from.
Growing up as a dancer, I’ve always valued creativity and self-expression – I love how clothes and accessories can be used to express our personality and individuality and how staple pieces can be dressed up or down, so our wardrobes can be simple, yet versatile.
I’m very much a people person and my forte is understanding people’s needs and helping them to find solutions. Early on in my working life, I worked in marketing and communications for large corporate companies. Eventually, I realised that the corporate world wasn’t where I wanted to be - there was something missing. I hired a life coach and began to consider how I could use my skills and experience to find a new, more fulfilling career. We explored what I loved doing – dance, theatre trips, travel and walking in the countryside - yet our conversations kept coming back to shopping. So, my new career began…
I carried out professional personal styling training and gained experience, working with clients one-to-one in John Lewis’ personal styling department. After discovering that this is what I was meant to do and how flexibly it would fit in with family life, Your Stylist by Jennifer Jones Styling was born in 2018.
After I had my son and became a mum, I found my relationship with fashion and clothes changed. With little time to focus on yourself and the ever-changing needs children have as they grow and develop, it is no wonder that our wardrobes are not front of mind, but like they say – happy mum, happy baby/children – so making time for your self-care and feeling good in what you wear is so important.
As a result of my career background and personal journey, I have a great understanding of the needs of our clients. For women who are in the corporate world or transitioning from a corporate role to a different career, I can advise on what to wear for work to combine comfort, versatility and professionalism. As a mum, I empathise with how your busy life can lead to losing your sense of style and can advise on a comfortable, practical, yet effortlessly stylish wardrobe. For new mums and mums-to-be, I can help with comfortable and stylish maternity and postnatal wear, clothing for ease when breastfeeding and how to adapt your wardrobe to the changes in your shape, size and lifestyle. No matter where you are in your journey - I’m here to help you rediscover you, feel amazing every day and find your style confidence.
Over the years, Your Stylist by Jennifer Jones Styling has expanded... after training amazing women with my personal styling training courses, I began working with those I'd trained to provide personal styling services in more locations across the UK. And we now help mums with their style in Hampshire, Guildford, London, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester.
I love what I do - empowering mums with the skills and knowledge to shop and dress with style and confidence is the most rewarding part of my work. And since the beginning of 2021, me and my colleague Amy, have been helping our clients with interior styling. This has been so much fun, and I've loved using my creativity and styling skills to help my clients feel proud of their homes as well as their wardrobes.
