Make this the year you follow your style
It’s the start of the New Year and resolutions will be made, some lasting and others for as long as we can resist the temptation of the last box of Christmas chocolates. So this year I’ve decided to set my self some goals and rather than resolve what not to do, decide on some things I want to achieve. I’ve set myself 3, like many people one of them includes losing weight. Sitting at a desk all day does nothing for your figure and as it’s got to the point where I can’t get into some of my favourite clothes something must be done!
It was obvious from the panic on the High Street with retailers slashing prices long before traditional New Year’s sales that we are buying less. So what we do buy has to be money well spent so I’ve put together some style resolutions to help you get the most from your hard earned cash:
1. Resolve to find your style. Before you spend in the sales go to your wardrobe and make up one outfit that you absolutely love. Put it on and analyse why you love it. Does it show off your great legs? Does the colour make you feel good? Is it because it fits really well and you know you can just forget you are wearing it? Have you been told you look fabulous in it? Really think about what it is that makes you love this outfit. Once you worked out the key elements make a note of them and take it shopping with you. Read this post on finding your style for more help and throughout the year keep your personal style in mind every time you shop.
2. Resolve to build a Capsule Wardrobe. Starting with the outfit from 1 above decide how you can wear it in new ways. If it’s a dress can it be made more casual with a chunky cardigan and boots? Would a great piece of jewellery draw attention to the neckline? What other colours do you love that would work with it? Find out which are your best colours here. Make a list of pieces that would work with and extend this outfit. See how to put together a work capsule wardrobe and a casual capsule wardrobe or get help from the Capsule Wardrobes team.
3. Resolve to feel fabulous every day. When your wardrobe is full of clothes you love, that make you feel good this is an easy resolution to keep. But how often do we buy something and keep it for best or just that one occasion? That makes it a very expensive outfit! Why shouldn’t you dress up and feel good about yourself on a daily basis? Feeling good gives you confidence so resolve to step out with style – for yourself – every day.
Here’s some inspiration for you…
