About Kathleen, creator of the Course and Owner & Wardrobe Stylist at Style School KC

Kathleen Watson

I’m Kathleen Watson, a Wardrobe Stylist and Lifestyle Coach from the Midwest.  I help busy, women with way too many things to do find balance. The purpose of my 21+ year career in coaching is to bring practical, personal style by combining Mind + Body + Skin + Style.

As a business-owning mom-on-the-go, I have helped 100s of women (and a few men!) bring a fresh outlook to an out-of-balance, not-so-stylish life. I’ve spent years carefully crafting coaching programs to help women of all shapes and sizes find their personal style and feel comfortable expressing themselves through fashion and self care.

My business, Style School KC, is home to my programs that offer in-home and in-store personal styling services in the Kansas City metro area, and online for women across the country. My vision for helping women feel great has lead to many wonderful connections and friendships. I help my clients connect the dots and find solutions for their personal style. My end goal is to help each woman I work with evolve to a balanced, stylish, dream version of herself.  If you can envision it, you can be it, and I help women get there.

I’ve built the DIY Closet Course to share my secrets while also giving YOU the roadmap to craft a wardrobe and life you love. The three bonus videos take you straight through my coaching services;  showing you exactly what I teach my clients. By joining the fun, you’ll truly get all my practical solutions, directions and guidance, plus peace of mind in your closet. I’ve put my all into this program and if this is resonating with you, I would love to have you join!  What our current members are saying warms my heart everyday!

What Kathleen’s Clients Say

“For me the best part of the course was the way to organize my closet in conjunction with “naming” the types of pieces (basic, interest, completer). Pure genius! It made everything fall into place, and I no longer had to “remember” what I had because it was right in front of me in the right place.”

“The biggest take aways for me were the instant outfit formula, setting up your closet to facilitate actually using the formula, and the accessory sets concept. I also loved your outfit and accessory mixes with your classic/boho/earthy style.”

“The videos are fantastic! It made closet organization make so much more sense!”

“Thank-you for including some outfits worn by older women- it’s helpful to see how these outfits work on them.”
