January 4th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 3 Personal Style Resolutions for 2018

“New year, new me,” right? To be honest, I am not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions. Why wait for improvement, and why put further pressure on yourself when life is busy enough? With that said, it’s never a bad time to decide to make small, positive changes in your life!

Have you ever made resolutions pertaining to your personal style? Have you bought clothes just because they are trendy only to end up never wearing them? Or have you purchased something because its on sale or super cheap, just to leave it on the hanger or have it fall apart after a few washes?  What about feeling uncomfortable all day, tugging and pulling on something that doesn’t fit just right?

We’ve all been there. This year, resolve to clean out and create a wardrobe that is wholeheartedly you by following the simple style resolutions below.


1. Shop Smart & Selectively.
Resolve to only buy pieces that you love. Forget about being trendy and create a wardrobe that you will actually wear. You’ll never have the “I have nothing to wear” problem while staring into a full closet again.

2. Shop Quality vs. Quantity.
Skip fast fashion stores and invest in quality pieces that will last you years. You will end up saving money and building a quality wardrobe you’ll be proud to wear again and again.

3. Ignore Style “Rules”.
You do not have to fit your style into one category. Do you happen to love flowy, floral dresses AND basic minimal black outfits? Don’t choose between bohemian style or minimalist style. Wear what you love, no matter what category it may fit into.
