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!

Hello Amelia! Fellow natural ginger here. Your hair is a gorgeous colour and I don't blame your parents for not wanting you to dye it. How about the dye only be temporary? It won't stay on forever, so you'll have your cool rainbow colours and still have your natural colour. I do need to warn you, though, don't dye your hair too much. It's not good for your scalp. Good luck. :)

They know what is best for you. But if you really wanna dye your hair, you should compromise with them. Like for instance: tell them you can dye the bottom of your hair the color, and then when you get older, you could maybe dye a little more, and so on. But your parents know what's best for you, and they want you to look presentable.                       ~PCG :)

Hello players of KidzWorld! I am Amelia, feel free to call me Payton or whatever you'd like! So, let us jump right into this! :D -=+=- I have natural ginger hair and really, REALLY strict parents. I would like to dye my hair this blue color called "Atomic Turquoise" by Maniac Panic :) However, my parents don't want me to dye my hair as they think that these colors look "trashy". Girls whom I know, have dyed hair. One of them even has piercings I want. Another has had her hair every color of the rainbow and more! So, my parents are very strict and quite... I don't even know. They won't allow me to do anything really... Does anyone have anything I can use to have my parents allow me to dye my hair? Thank you! :D <3 ~Payton

lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me
