Katie Rushton, Effortless Style (Time Well Spent with Julie Hullett, Episode 18)
Although she loved fabric and fashion from an early age, Katie Rushton, Founder of Effortless Style, spent years in corporate before returning to school for a fashion merchandising degree. She and host Julie Hullett discussed how Katie’s work evolved, her love of spreadsheets, what’s hot right now, building trust with her clients, her array of services, how she stays organized, and more.
Following the interview, Julie shared a Quick Tip with a time-saving home cleaning hack.
Getting dressed each day doesn’t have to be difficult, and you shouldn’t feel daunted by something you have to do every morning. Effortless Style removes “I don’t know what to wear” from your vocabulary and helps you feel like the clothes you put on represent the best version of you. They are also the first to acknowledge that when you’re considering hiring a stylist, it can be surprisingly intimidating. A one-time closet audit to create new looks from your current wardrobe may have you sorting through years of clothes, stories, and memories (and a few things in between).
A styling session or their ongoing personal shopping services could turn into deeper discussions about the ways that you want to up your game or move your career forward. For the team at Effortless Style, it’s all about building a relationship with clients where you feel comfortable and at ease working with us. Man, woman, at work, at play, budget-conscious, or ready to invest—it doesn’t matter who you are!
They work with a variety of clients to create fresh looks that inspire confidence, reflect your sensibilities and style, and require minimal effort for you.
Katie Rushton, Founder/Wardrobe Stylist, Effortless Style
Katie Rushton is the founder of the Nashville-based personal shopping company Effortless Style. Along with her team of stylists, she works with clients who range from corporate powerhouses to musicians, to working parents. No matter the client, her approach starts by building relationships so she can create a personalized, polished look that builds confidence and creates ease in their daily lives.
Katie’s enthusiasm and passion for her work make even the most fashion-averse feel like they know exactly what to put on in the morning. With a warm smile and an easy approach, she meets each individual where they are in life, listening to their needs so that she can capture their personal style and help them feel great in their clothes. A love of style started young for Katie.
Other interests won out as she pursued a career in finance, but like most callings, her desire to work in fashion and styling eventually became too loud to ignore. After graduating from fashion and merchandising school, Katie was hooked. Whether it was studying emerging trends or learning the ins and outs of fabrics and how sewing techniques support a great fit, Katie left school ready to help clients look and feel their best. Her first stop? The working women she could relate to all too well from her days in an office environment.
Since founding Effortless Style, she’s seen it all! Whether working with a musician wanting to create a standout look or those ready to move their career forward in big ways, Katie has built a team ready to serve a variety of clients and needs.
