Effortless Style

Whether you want to personalize and improve your unique style or completely transform yourself, Karna and her associates have the capability to “change the way you get dressed, change your life.”

Getting dressed involves so many factors: finding the right components in the perfect fit for your lifestyle, integrating trends into your wardrobe, streamlining your closet, and above all, having perfected looks accessorized and ready to go. Karna is a lifestyle fashion stylist. She believes that you can walk the Red Carpet every day, regardless of what you do. She knows that your demanding schedule doesn’t allow for the many details required to achieve a perfected style of your own. Consequently, Karna has made your “Effortless Style™” her mission and will handle every fashion related detail specifically for you, taking away all the hassle and anxiety of getting dressed. Every detail is handled, period.

Karna has over 15 years of experience serving and styling clients who lead extraordinary lives. She possesses a unique ability to understand and interpret a client’s own personal style and their individual wardrobe challenges. Combining her extensive background in designer and couture fashion, visual merchandising and organization, and a unique comprehension of her clients’ needs and lifestyles, Karna is well prepared to make your wardrobe and personal style a cohesive and effortless experience.

Karna and her associates will refine and polish the look that’s right for you, a look that you can own. They will guide you through the trends each season, merchandise and organize your closet according to the way you get dressed, create a comprehensive wardrobe by editing and adding key pieces, and style “ready-to-go” outfits just for you. You’ll begin to realize that your life has indeed changed because of the way you get dressed.

Styling Services

Styling and Image Consultation

Back To Top
Let’s begin a comprehensive process that will change the way you get dressed, start to finish. I want to know what your day-to-day life entails, and what you wish it looked like. Our initial meeting will be relaxed and open. I want to know you, your lifestyle and your short term and long term goals. I’m not out to make you into a runway model or make changes you aren’t comfortable with, unless that’s what you want. My purpose is to identify and refine your style in a way that makes you feel confident, defines who you are, and reveals the real you, fashionably.

Event Attire Styling and Dressing

Back To Top
Confidence is the ultimate accessory. Let me take away the anxiety of your next important event, speaking engagement, public appearance, formal or hot date. Together we will create a vision and make it come to life for your event. I can style an ensemble that makes you look like a million dollars while still feeling like yourself. We’ll find the dress of your dreams along with the necessary underpinnings and have it altered to fit you perfectly, all within the comfort of your home. The right jewelry, bag, shoes, make-up and hairstyle need to flow together and create a polished, effortless image. The day of your event requires a great deal of energy as well. I’ll be your lady in waiting - dressing, buttoning, zipping, I’ll even tie your bow and get you into the limo. Best of all, any last minute unexpected fashion emergencies will be handled with style and grace.

Personal Shopping

Back To Top
Through the years, I’ve made strategic connections in Chicago and beyond, with Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s, the major boutiques, and well known designers. With the access I have to their extensive resources, I’m able to pull together a new wardrobe, find a specific shoe, or snag you the “It Bag” of the season. Best of all, in most cases the merchandise is on loan, so we are able to work with selections in your home or office at our own pace while we decide. You can stick to your busy schedule and let me do the work, bring it to you, and work with you in your home or office. On the other hand, you may choose to be actively involved in the process. I’ll do the prep work in advance, guide you through the racks, keep us focused on our goals, and facilitate exceptional service. With this VIP shopping approach, we’ll be situated in a private fitting room and shopping will be fun once again.

Wardrobe Re-vamp

Back To Top
Change is good. If your wardrobe needs a major overhaul, we’ll find a place to start and dive in together. Refining and editing what you already have is the first step, from there we can add key pieces and fresh additions to help build the image you want to present. Life happens. Ignoring your VOGUE subscription, losing or gaining weight, changing jobs, or transitioning to a new lifestyle, create the need to update. Perhaps you need key pieces but can’t determine exactly what those should be. Don’t fret and become overwhelmed, let me help.

Custom Closet Merchandising

Back To Top
Have you ever walked into a store where everything just “clicked”? Suddenly, what was on racks and shelves was transformed into outfits. The challenge of buying outfits rather than pieces turned into excitement about the ensembles you would create there. That was “merchandising” at its best. When you got home with your purchases, you filed them into your closet. A week later you couldn’t even remember the outfits that had easily fallen together in that store. Your purchases didn’t flow together and make sense the way they had in the store. When it comes to shopping, the visual merchandising appeals differently to everyone. When you enter your closet, you’re shopping for something to wear. So imagine walking into your closet and just like in the store, your clothes, shoes and accessories are presented in a way that flows with how you wear them. You’ll no longer have too many clothes but nothing to wear. Leave the work to us; closet merchandising is a science in which my associates and I have many years of experience.

Personalized Digital Lookbook

Back To Top
Wish you had a Google search button in your closet for the question: “What should I wear today?” A personalized digital (or hardcover) lookbook, complete with photos of fully styled outfits from your closet is even better. I will work through your closet, combine existing pieces with recent purchases and create complete, accessorized outfits, in a way that makes sense to you. This is ideal for the client who loves fashion, but is puzzled each season trying to mix their own clothes with new styles. Your Personalized Lookbook will enable you to instantly reference and choose perfectly styled solutions to the age old “what to wear” dilemma.

Closet Maintainance

Back To Top
If you have a busy lifestyle and a lot of clothes, your closet might just be working against you. Getting dressed each morning with everything in its place, easy to find, clean, and in good repair is a major component in presenting your most polished and confident self. When finding an outfit becomes a gamble, a fashion emergency is imminent. Everyone’s closet gets unruly. Don’t worry, we’ve seen it all. We can whip any mess into shape, or completely overhaul a disaster zone. Not only is the organization suited to your needs, Effortless Style™ is enabled with every detail. In March, your furs are brought to storage for you. When your shoes need attention, they’re repaired and returned, if I find a hole in a sweater, it’s taken to the re-weaver. With an expert in charge, you don’t need to worry about the details and you’re organized; everything is perfect when we’re finished.

Seasonal Wardrobe Rotation

Back To Top
If you’re overwhelmed each season with the task of exchanging your wools for linens, boots for sandals, fur collars for sundresses, let us take care of it for you. Every season the fashionable are faced with decisions of what to store, what to wear, what to edit and where to put it all. Albeit arduous, it’s a task that must get done, so assign it to a professional. We will freshly merchandise your closet, store and organize your off season items for next year, and prepare you for the current season.

Closet Design Consultation

Back To Top
Is a new/updated closet in your future? In a perfect world, builders and interior designers would know which components you need to truly make your closet work. In this world however, it requires an intimate knowledge of your clothing and habits of dressing; not just how many square feet of rod space was being utilized the day your closet was measured by a builder. So many variables go into building the perfect closet so that everything fits in and your new space presents a cohesive and organized shopping experience every time you enter. Someone familiar with your wardrobe, with experience and practical ideas in visual merchandising, is an asset during the building process. I will consult with your builder or interior designer to make your new closet one that will function based on your needs.

Travel Wardrobe Planning and Packing

Back To Top
If travel is on your agenda, you realize there’s nothing like a well planned, beautifully packed wardrobe for your trip. Whether you need to pack lightly or bring the trunks along, whether you’re flying privately or commercial, over water, on safari, down mountains, or escaping to warmer climates, we all agree, packing is a pain. You’ll need looks that work together, versatile enough for day-to-evening dressing, and come out of your luggage looking great without seeing an iron. We’ll start by compiling everything you need, style and strategize the outfits and I’ll pack your bags, making your trip (and the things that come out of your luggage) a smooth success.
