“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.
Who What Wear has become my fashion bible. I meticulously follow their blog and social media channels to keep up on the latest fashion news and trends. Since 2015, Who What Wear has honored the most fashion-forward influencers and trendsetters of the past year. This year’s winners were announced earlier this week, and I was pleasantly surprised to see many of my favorite bloggers featured!
Take a look at the style bloggers that received honors in the Who What Wear Street Style Awards. And take a cue—these are bloggers that need to be added to your blogroll ASAP!

Nepotism runs rampant in Hollywood; sometimes, it’s all about who you know. But it seems like more and more, we’re seeing next-gen celebrity children make their own claim to fame. Take a look at five next generation celebrity children who are becoming fashion it girls.
At just 16 years old, Kaia Gerber (daughter and lookalike of supermodel Cindy Crawford) has already modeled for Versace and been featured on the cover of Vogue. This year, she walked the runway for Marc Jacobs, Burberry, and Alexander Wang during Spring 2018 Fashion Week.
Sylvester Stallone’s 19-year-old daughter is signed with IMG Models and was awarded Miss Golden Globes in 2017 (along with her two sisters). Sistine has already walked for Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana and shot an editorial for Harper’s Bazaar.
Lionel Richie’s daughter (whom you may also know as Nicole Richie’s sister), has been in the public eye for quite some time, but 2017 has her stepping into the limelight with her own work. With 2.7 million Instagram followers, a budding modeling portfolio, and growing influence as a street style star, we will be happy to see more from the youngest Richie.
Daughter of the late Michael Jackson, Paris has dabbled in acting since 2011 and recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models. She often uses her family name for good, speaking out and bringing awareness to those in need who don’t have her platform.
Daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose has successfully launched her own career in acting and modeling. She has several feature films behind her and has worked with the likes of Chanel and Vogue.
Who are your favorite next-gen fashion it girls?
Live music was made to happen in the summer, on late nights spent singing along with your favorite bands with your best friends. I’ve met some of my favorite people attending concerts, and watching a great live performer is my favorite way to spend a warm summer night.
This year’s music festival line-ups and album releases have us more excited than ever for our favorite touring performers. In anticipation of those shows, I’ve rounded up the top ten summer concert tours you’ll want to keep an eye on.
1. Kendrick Lamar
He won Coachella, and now he has a nearly sold out summer tour. If you’re one of the lucky ones to have scored a ticket, you’re likely seeing the hottest concert of the season.
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers
These ’90s legends never fail to put on some of the most energetic and honest live shows you’ll ever experience!
3. Hans Zimmer
The most surprising act at Coachella this year is taking it on the road, and if you’re a movie score fan, you will love hearing your film soundtracks come alive. This show is perfect for a summer date night!
4. Bruno Mars
Bruno Mars is just a good time overall. Gather your girlfriends and dance and sing the night away with Bruno as he performs hit after hit.
5. New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, & Paula Abdul
If you’re “old” enough (like me!), this show will be nostalgic perfection.
Another show that should not, could not, will not be missed this summer! If you love live music and energetic performers, be sure not to miss Future on tour.
7. Jason Aldean
I know not everyone is a country music fan, but if you are, you’re probably planning on going to at least one of Jason Aldean’s highly anticipated live shows.
8. Britney Spears
Not technically a tour, but the last year of Britney’s Vegas residency is sure to be one of the hottest shows that you can attend this summer.
9. Enrique Iglesias & Pitbull
These two should never tour without each other! Enrique and Pitbull put on one of the hottest shows, and you can be sure there will be guest performers making appearances left and right!
10. John Mayer
John Mayer has been out of the spotlight for quite some time, and I expect nothing but good surprises to come from his new music.
Having fashion show access, professional stylists, and seemingly unlimited bank accounts, celebrities and fashion “it” girls are able to rock the latest looks and set trends season after season. Take a look at some of Hollywood’s current favorite fashion trends!
A reoccurring trend seen on the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, the bomber jacket made a huge comeback in 2016 and is definitely competing for trend of the year in 2017.
Much like loafers and slides, embellished slippers are a style our feet are so glad we have embraced. Recently seen on Dakota Johnson and Olivia Palermo, embellished slippers are the new ‘cool girl’ shoe of the season.
Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner frequently rock newsboy caps, and for a good reason! Top off your outfit with one for that instantly chic celebrity street style look.
They may not hold much, but they’ll hold your essentials and be your coolest accessory this season.
You’ll be seeing lace-up tops everywhere this year; it’s a way to show some skin without being as overtly sexy as a classic plunge.
