It’s a New Year and the perfect time to reevaluate the direction and composition of your wardrobe. Perhaps it’s time to make some resolutions about style, future purchases and the look you want to portrait in the coming year. It’s not about discarding everything and starting over, but more about the balance of your wardrobe – is your closet teaming with pants and not a decent dress to be had? Or perhaps it’s a sea of black and not a print to be found.
If you’re feeling bored or uninspired when you venture into your closet, then it’s time to kick it up a notch and inject a dose of excitement and joie de vivre. Here are some suggestions that will help you keep that New Year’s resolution to mix it up this year.
1. Add a Little Retro
Think about the Palm Beach socialite circa late 70s. Try adding retro silhouettes and a beachy meets preppy vibe. It adds femininity, fluidity and a little glamour.
2. Next Level
Try adding something fun to all your looks, like Gucci silver and black platforms.
3. Prints Please
Break out of the minimal black and white uniform, and embrace the more electric and romantic spirit of the season.
4. To the Max
One of the freshest styles to add to your wardrobe for Spring is the maxi dress. If one is good, two or three is even better.
5. Simply Chic
When you hit your style stride and know exactly what you feel your best in, it may be time to say goodbye to all the fussy, trendy, over the top pieces in your closet.
6. Making the Cut
The time has come to edit and refine your wardrobe. Make 2016’s arrival as an opportunity to focus on pieces that are polished with a purpose.
7. Buttoned UP
While this may not be exactly new for you, with one of these pieces, you will be draped in the shirting trend the entirety of the season.
8. Clean Lines
Try un-layering. Keep it simple and down to the basics.
9. Decorate yourself
Work on building your accessory collection so you’re not waking up each morning grabbing the same old thing.
10. In the Details
Maybe it’s time to up your game – from statement earrings to fine investment pieces.
