New Year Style Resolutions

At the end of each year, it’s always fun to make New Year resolutions! Everyone likes to make resolutions about replacing old habits with new ones - but what about your personal style? Style resolutions are fun ones to make and will help you to make the most of your current wardrobe and incorporate new trends every season without breaking the bank. No one wants to blindly follow trends and look like a fashion victim but if you stick to your style resolutions, you’re bound to always look great and most importantly of all, feel comfortable and look stylish! Check out our tips for New Year style resolutions! What are yours?

Don’t follow a trend unless you truly like it

With every season comes a whole load of new trends. This year the military look, rompers, plaid and jeggings have been all the rage. Next year retro1970s style, punk and biker and neon bright colors are forecast to be on trend for 2011. Only incorporate trends that you feel comfortable wearing and that you look best in - stick to what YOU like, in style or not!

Transform your wardrobe using accessories!

It’s a common misconception that you have to go out and buy new clothes to inject life into your current wardrobe. Fashion accessories like a new patterned scarf, a stack of bangles, a funky new statement necklace or a unique hair band takes any outfit to a new level. And it’s way cheaper than buying a whole new wardrobe!

Mix and match patterns and prints for a unique look

Not everything always has to be matchy-matchy! In fact, the more you mix things up in your closet, the more unique your outfits look. The key is to keep the colors and the tones as similar as possible. For example, if you’re mixing florals and stripes - pair skinny stripes with small floral prints and wide ones with bolder florals.

Get creative and DIY!

Make 2011 the year you experiment with customizing your clothing and maybe even learning how to make your own skirt, tote bag or hair accessories. Look at craft websites and Etsy.com for inspiration, once you start we guarantee you’ll be hooked!

Donate any clothing you haven’t touched in a year

If you have a pile of things in your closet that you haven’t touched in a long time, think about donating them to a local charity or to the local Goodwill. Or invite friends and family over and let them pick what they like! It feels good to give and you make room for new stuff you will actually wear!

Experiment with new looks and styles - be more fashion forward!

We all tend to get into a bit of a fashion rut sometimes. It’s easy to just stick to what is safe and what we’re used to - but keep an open mind to trying new styles. You never know what it will look like unless you try it on!

It's your belief. I'm not so sure though, but maybe it is haunted.

Special occasion? Need more details. And to be honest, fashion/style is a weak point. Be yourself.
