Happy New Year! It’s time to follow through on your style resolutions! Haven’t made any? Try these. Here’s 5 style resolutions to make in 2018.
Wear a new color.
Look in your closet. Is it full of clothes representing a rainbow of colors OR do you notice one color you tend to gravitate to? There’s nothing wrong with having a go-to color. (I’ll admit mine is black!) You have to wonder: Are you missing out by not dabbling in another color? Now is a good time to test-drive some new colors. I’m going to don some Ultra Violet. The color experts at Pantone declared it the color of the year. Give it a go.
Purge your closet.
Out with the old. In with the new. You got to make room for everything new you’re going to buy, right? So how do you know what to part with? A good rule to follow is the Two Year Rule. If you haven’t worn it in two years, purge it. Since you’re a multi-tasker, why not purge AND make yourself some extra cash? Consign your designer labels at Luxury Garage Sale.
Invest in a classic.
You can never go wrong with a classic. Moto jackets, black blazers, a trench, and an LBD are some of the classics that come to mind. These are the go-to pieces that are ageless, that you’ll find in any great wardrobe AND you’ll wear them for many years to come.
Buy a new statement accessory.
I’d go with something entirely new here. Opt for something that you have NOT tried but maybe always wanted to! If you don’t normally wear hats, maybe this will be the year you put one on. If you wear tiny stud earrings on the daily, try a statement earring instead. If your everyday bag is a safe, basic bag, carry one in a different style that gets all the second glances. If your wrists and neckline are usually bare, style them with statement cuffs and necklaces for fun. Experiment with hair accessories. The right accessories can turn any outfit into something worthy of a street snap.
Pick a print.
Any print. Be brave this year and venture into glorious print territory. Florals, checks, art, graffiti, stripes, animal, paisley…the list goes on. You’ve got plenty of options here. If you’re a newbie to prints, try a small print. Then gradually step it up to larger and bolder prints. Before you know it, you’ll be mixing and matching your prints like a pro.
