It’s that time of year again to think of what New Years Resolutions we should make. This year, we are going with instant gratification. One of the quickest ways to look and feel better about yourself is by getting a handle on your style.
One of our New Year’s Resolutions is to look better and what better way to achieve that than through fashion? Going through your closet, learning what works for you, and following through with the changes will help you feel better about yourself in 2011!
We have compiled a list of style-centric goals for the New Year that are down-to-Earth and simple to stick to. Even better: None require a trip to the gym.
1. Out With The Old
Purging your closet means you are no longer bogged down by clothes that you never wear. When deciding what to keep and what to get rid of, ask yourself some basic questions:
- Do I love it?
- Does it fit me?
- Does it look good on me?
- Does it make me feel good about myself?
- Am I comfortable in it?
You want to be able to answer yes to all the questions. Anything unworn in the past year has to go. Resolve not to wear any piece of clothing that requires taping, folding or tugging to hold it into place.
2. Replenish The Basics
All of these are wardrobe essentials —Are they in your closet?
- Bright white and saturated black t-shirts
- Slimming jeans
- Crisp button-downs
- Trench coat
- Little black dress
3. Fashion Economics
Decide to go on a month-long shopping hiatus. You’ll not only save money but you’ll also see the holes in your wardrobe that you need to (not want to) fill. Remember, sometimes it’s better to buy one fabulous designer staple item, rather than a dozen cheap items. Look at the cost-per-wear of your clothing! A designer handbag, like a cinda b, is a small investment considering its quality and longevity. It’s important that you don’t sacrifice quality for price.
