fashion resolution 2017

Have you made any style resolutions for 2017?

Vowing to lose weight, exercise more and tidy up your desk is a very dull way to start the New Year. We suggest that your number one resolution should be to learn to love yourself, your body and your style, and have more fun with your look in 2017.

Don’t let anybody dictate to you what you can or can’t wear. Feel free to dress up or down, depending on your mood, mix your colours, go retro or wear completely inappropriate outfits just to please yourself. Life is too short to dress the same as everyone else or feel self-conscious about your body.

Fashion Resolution #1 Have fun with dressing up

Some days you might just want to slop around in leggings or watch TV in a fluffy onesie, but why not change the style a bit just for the hell of it sometimes? Go out to Tesco with a full face of make up, in a dress that makes you feel amazing. Dress up more than you normally would for a work meeting. Make a real effort to dress up next time you go out for a meal. It doesn’t matter what you wear as long as it’s something you’ve personally put some effort into, and makes you feel good.

Knowing that you made that extra effort can give you a shot of confidence that can even attract compliments from other people who can’t fail to notice your sparkle…

Fashion Resolution #2 Get colourful

Just because you’re grown up doesn’t mean you have to dress it. If you look in your wardrobe and see just beige and neutrals, maybe it’s time you added a splash of bold colour to spice up your look for 2017? Start small if colour actually scares you, with accessories like a brightly coloured set of Wingz, or even a bright lipstick…work your way up to a stunning crimson dress or bright blue top that jolts your look out of the fashion doldrums.

Fashion Resolution #3 Get rid of everything that’s not YOU

So OK this one is about decluttering. Look through your wardrobe and take out all the things you don’t wear because you don’t like them, they need repairing or they just don’t fit. It’s OK to leave ion things that you love but don’t get to wear as often as you’d like.

If you love something enough to get it repaired, go ahead and get it fixed. If not, donate it, throw it out or recycle it into something you WILL wear. A sad wardrobe is not a good place to have to look into every morning.
