Happy New Year! As 2019 begins, many people will have set resolutions that are almost never kept. In terms of fashion, there are changes you can make that won’t be as hard to stick to and will help to evolve your style during the coming year. Here are 4 ways to make a change to your style in preparation for the start of the fashion calendar in spring!
1. Be Bolder
Make 2019 the year where you challenge yourself to go out of your comfort zone by incorporating more bold colours or patterns into your wardrobe. As we are still in the winter season, you can start off small with a coloured scarf or jumper and gradually build up your collection into spring! Be adventurous and move away from the all black outfits, even if the idea of brighter colours scares you, adding more subtle colours such as navy or bottle green could be a great place to start.
2. Try New Things
Bored of all the clothes in your wardrobe? Perhaps try a new brand that you have never bought from before to help you find new styles. Websites like ASOS.com are good for this sort of thing as it is easy to filter out all of your usual brands while viewing loads of new brands you may have not considered before.
3. Create a Capsule Wardrobe
If you want to reduce the amount of clothes you buy in 2019, January is the perfect time to begin planning a capsule wardrobe ready for the spring season. The main concept is to invest in more good quality and well fitting basic pieces which will carry you across all of the seasons, while only buying a few trend pieces to make it a more sustainable option. They also reduce waste and limit the amount of fast fashion you buy as you have to make considered choices about what you want to buy.
4. Treat Yo’ Self!
While it is important to save some of your Christmas money, there is nothing wrong with treating yourself to a more indulgent piece for your wardrobe. Items such as bags or accessories are perfect to spend more on as they are usually the most versatile with different outfits making them better value for money.
