I know, I know—New Year’s resolutions are cliché, never stick, and you’re back to your old habits within just a couple months, right? Let’s let go of the pressure to change ourselves and focus on small improvements instead! Change up an old routine or make a pledge to accomplish goals that inspire you, not ones that change who you are. Let’s start with five doable fashion resolutions that will help 2017 be your most comfortable and stylish year yet!
Quality over quantity! Clean out pieces that are no longer your style, and invest in pieces that you will wear often and that will stand the test of time.
2. Be Daring
If you like it, wear it! Fashion should be about fun, not conformity. Don’t worry about other people’s opinions—the only one that matters is your own!
3. Reuse More
If thrift stores and recycled fashion aren’t for you, there are still ways to reuse older clothing items. Have a clothing swap with friends or find a way to DIY an old item into something new. Try pairing things you never thought would work before to create something fresh.
4. Stay Inspired
Take the time to notice colors, patterns, and shapes around you, whether they’re from what someone is wearing, in nature, or in art. Inspiration comes from everywhere. Take a moment to take a photo, jot down an idea or simply press the ‘like’ button on Instagram or Pinterest for later motivation.
5. Be YOU
If you don’t like a trend, don’t give it a second thought. You will always feel your most comfortable and confident when you are being 100% true to yourself and your style. When you feel good, you look good!
