Asteya is a personal styling service for those who seek to do more with less.

Your outer style should reflect the inner you. But so often we are slaves to fashion, endlessly shopping the next trend. As a result, 80% of our clothing goes unworn, and what we do wear does not feel like us. Stop the endless cycle of trend-driven shopping, and take control of your style. 

Introducing affordable, in-person styling for real people. Connect to stylists in your city who help you refine your look. Because style is so much more than fashion. 

Reduce. Reuse. Restyle.

 

WARDROBE
CONSTULATIONS

Book a personal stylist who will come to your home and shop your closet, creating new outfits out of existing pieces. Stylists will educate you on what works for your specific body and lifestyle. Perfect if you have a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. Initial 3-hour consultations and shorter 2-hour follow-ups available.

SUSTAINABLE
SHOPPIng

Once you and your stylist identify the gaps in your closet, shop conscientiously for sustainable brands. Not a one-size-fits-all approach, we source brands that are environmentally friendly in different ways, from those manufacturing in eco-friendly ways to local designers to classic styles built to last. 

My relationship with my closet had gone stale, wearing the same few outfit combinations on repeat. My session with Asteya changed that. My stylist provided a totally fresh perspective on new ways to wear what I already own. I didn’t have to buy a thing yet somehow it feels like I’ve doubled my wardrobe!

Restyling the future of fashion

Asteya is a Sanskrit term that loosely translates to 'non-stealing.' As a major tenant of yoga, its true meaning is highly nuanced. Asteya is about not coveting possessions, not hoarding what you don’t need, or not mindlessly consuming natural resources. 

Fashion has long been at odds with the principles of asteya. The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world. Americans alone throw out 82 pounds of textiles, per person, every year. While many designers and brands are working to reduce their environmental impact, that alone is not enough. We believe the consumer mindset has to shift as well.

We empower men and women to do more with the 80% of their closet that they rarely wear, reducing the waste associated with over-consumption.

You already have clothing you loved at one point. Now you just need a little help reimagining it. You just need to restyle it.

Our Values

We value long-lasting, trend-adverse style. Fast fashion is not only bad for the environment, it is bad for you. Personal style should be personal. When you feel comfortable in your clothes, that confidence bleeds into other areas of your life.

We value human relationships. Online styling sessions do not allow stylists to see the full picture. How can they feel the fabrics, see how you move in the clothes, offer adjustments and tailoring suggestions if they are looking at you through a screen?

We believe you can tell a lot about someone by what is in their closet.

We believe that personal style cannot be shipped to you in a box.

We believe that good style is for everyone.

We want a healthy, sustainable planet.

Less consuming. More living.
