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.

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!

Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]

I understand how hard this must be. Because I should probably take this advice too.. I would try and focus on school lessons and ignore others. Don't be afraid to join a club! If you go to one that interests you then you might meet someone with common interests. I hope you get through this.
