Well, we made it. Hello 2017! Now that the decorations are being taken down and the hangovers from NYE have faded (hopefully), it’s time to start looking at the year ahead and making some style resolutions.
To make it easy for you, we’ve rounded up 17 style resolutions to help you welcome 2017 with a new wardrobe. You’re more than welcome.
Happy New Year!
1. Leave your comfort zone.
If you wear all black, try injecting some colour into your wardrobe or a bold print.
2. Create a capsule wardrobe.
Make 2017 the year you focus on investing in timeless pieces that you’ll wear a lifetime.
3. Treat yourself to something lavish.
Whether it’s a Gucci bag or Valentino heels, you deserve a bit of luxury in your life.
4. Invest in a trench coat.
Both trending and timeless, opt for an ultra-feminine silhouette with a utility-inspired twist.
5. Clear the clutter.
Take the time to go through your wardrobe and donate anything you never wear any more.
6. Buy less but be a wiser shopper.
Focus on purchasing fewer, quality pieces – instead of countless throwaway items.
7. Take better care of what you already own.
Make that trip to the tailor you’ve been putting off or get you shoes re-heeled.
8. Add a trophy blouse from Chloé to your wardrobe.
A feminine style featuring a white ruffled collar will pair with so many looks.
9. Dare to do double denim.
Forget those visions of Britney and Justin from the late 1990s, this look is well and truly back in the hands of trendsetters.
10. Update your beauty regime.
Whether by trying out some new cosmetics or trying a different technique, make 2017 the year you refine your morning ritual.
11. Keep it chic and minimal.
Monochrome hues and clean cuts will always exude effortless style; don’t underestimate the statement ‘less is more’.
12. Revive the spirit of the 70s.
A trend that has shown up the last couple of seasons, 2017 shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to chunky block heels, suede and cropped flares.
13. Rock some new accessories.
Jewellery, sunglasses and other finishing touches have the power to completely change an outfit.
14. Be a bit less casual at the weekend.
If you’re anything like us, you go into off-duty mode once the working week is over. Glam it up a bit now and then to feel like a whole new person.
15. Do something different with your hair.
It doesn’t even have to be a drastic change like a different colour or style, simply lop off a few inches and you’ll feel a million dollars.
16. Stop trying to keep up with everyone else.
Forget what’s trending on Instagram and focus on creating a look that is all your own.
17. Have fun!
The most important point of all. Don’t take yourself too seriously, both when it comes to style and the rest of your life. A new year is a like a fresh new start. Make 2017 a good one.
