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!

Hii, i want to give advice to all of you about this subject. first of all, always trust your BFF. why?, it's because she/he is the one who makes you feel like a family and always be there with you. Second, always remember your BFF where ever you are. i got this idea from my bff whose not n the same school with me. 8 February was her birthday while i said happy birthday to her 2 day later (i know i'm the worst). i literally panicked and said sorry to her like a thousand times. while she said "it's okay, i'm glad someone in your school (because some of us transfers here at my new school too) remembers my birthday, maybe all of them already forget me" she answered (which i'm touched). and the last, never ever betray your BFF. like i said at the start, they are like your family and will do anything for you to be happy. so keep their trust too. and that's all from me, hope it's helpful. love ya [s:sm3/1jw1]

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)
