Welcome to The Shy Stylist!

Hello and welcome to my style blog. I started out wanting to write The Shy Stylist as a way to show people that great style isn't something that can only be achieved if you are the flashiest or loudest or brashest person out there. I've never been any of those things, nor do I care to be. Instead, style to me is the ultimate expression of one's self - be it who you are, who you want to be, or even who you want people to think you are. Style can be loud, but it can also be quiet, elegant, or nuanced.

Living in New York City, and in Miami before that, I have come to realize that the best style is not seen on the mannequins along 5th Avenue or in the windows of a Bal Harbour boutique, but within the city itself. If you take a minute to look around, you will find countless sources of inspiration as well as cautionary tales to avoid in your own life.

What I would like this blog to be is a jumping off point for you, the reader; a place for tips, advice, and inspiration for your own unique sartorial choices. I envision two primary features for this site: Reader Questions and Style Features. The Reader Questions can be anything remotely style-related that you want to know about. Just send me an email and I will do my best to answer every question. In the Style Features, I will take a piece or accessory and show different ways to wear it, share my own style rules, fit tips, diy, and more. I’ll also on occasion post on other style or fashion-related things that peak my interest, so be sure to keep a look out.

Stay stylish,
- JJ
