I enjoyed Style Savvy: Fashion Forward more than I expected I would, so of course I had to get Style Savvy: Styling Star as soon as it was released. I was a bit bummed that the new Style Savvy game was only available as a digital download in the US, and that they put it on 3DS instead of Switch, but it is still a worthwhile purchase if you enjoyed the other games in the series.

In addition to clothes, hair, and makeup, Style Savvy: Fashion Forward allows you to do some interior decorating via miniatures. These miniature rooms are then magically converted into real rooms that people in the town can rent from you in Caprice Chalet. I don’t bother with making rooms in Caprice Chalet as often as I play the other features in Style Savvy: Fashion Forward, but I have made several rooms. I have chosen my Fortune Teller room, which includes a handy crystal ball and a toy black cat, as well as a variety of house plants and mystical decorations, as my Streetpass and online showcase room (though so far I haven’t run into anyone who has this game on Streetpass). Please feel free to download my Fortune Teller room and check it out! This room is very popular with the people in my town who want to practice reading fortunes, or who simply want to pay me to play with my toy black kitty.
I admit I initially dismissed the Style Savvy series as shovelware, but all the positive reviews piqued my interest enough to download the demo, and I’m glad I did. After playing through the entire demo, I was hooked and immediately went out to buy the full game.
My initial impression of Style Savvy: Fashion Forward was that it reminded me of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, except you decorate people instead of homes. The demo version primarily revolves around helping one particular stalker-like customer to copy the look of another character in the game by choosing clothes, styling her hair, and applying makeup to emulate the other character. This plot point is also present in the full game. You can also change your own look and help a variety of other customers in the shop. There is much more to do in the full game, obviously.
