Style Resolutions for 2017

Style Resolutions for   tips 2017

We might be well into 2017, but there’s no reason why now can’t be the time to turn over a new leaf. Now that summer is fast approaching, many of us are thinking about how we can revamp our wardrobes and be looking our best.

Resolution #1: Invest In A Top Notch Iron

 

Ironing your clothes might be a bit of a chore, but it’s essential if you want to keep your clothes in the best shape possible. Find irons that are gentle and will work on a range of fabrics. Just remember, there are a lot of different irons out there, so it’s probably best to go through a guide and find out which is the right one for you.

Resolution #2: Donate Clothes You Don’t Wear

Thanks to stagnating incomes, there are a lot of people out there who can’t afford great clothes right now. As a result, it’s a good idea to donate some of the clothes you haven’t worn recently or don’t plan to wear.

Figuring out whether to toss clothes or not can be a tough decision, especially if you’re a hoarder. Try asking yourself questions like, do you wear it often? Is it damaged? Does it go with the rest of your wardrobe? Does it fit anymore? Is it current? If it’s damaged or it doesn’t go with the rest of your clothes, it might be time to pass it on to somebody else.

 

Resolution #3: Wear Great Underwear

 

Though few people will ever get to see it wearing great underwear can really help you to feel sexy and confident for the day ahead. Nice underwear has an uncanny ability to make you feel special.

When it comes to wearing clothes, it can be a bonus too. Clothes hang better when you’re wearing a well-fitted bra.

 

Resolution #4: Sort Out Your Jewelry

 

If you’ve got an extensive jewelry collection, you’ll know that it can quickly get out of control. All those rings and necklaces can soon get tangled up into an impossible web that makes you want to scream. Even worse, undoing all the knots can cause damage. Next time you go shopping for a diamond necklace think about where you’re going to keep it. Will it fit in your existing jewelry box? Or will you have to upscale to keep things organized?

Resolution #5: Overdress To Impress

 

Sometimes it can be hard to know how to dress for certain occasions. But it’s better to show up to an event overdressed than underdressed, that’s for sure. Be confident and go to events to impress. Don’t feel like you have to dress down, just to fit in.

Resolution #6: Stop Wearing Frumpy Work Clothes

 

Work clothes are annoyingly frumpy sometimes. Business suits, skirts, and blazers are often dull and drab. Why not spice things up a bit by changing the color of what you’re wearing? Or how about going to a tailor and getting them to make you a suit that actually hugs the shape of your body?

Resolution #7: Stop Feeling Uncomfortable

 

The way we feel in our clothes has a massive knock-on effect on the way that we look in them. If we feel uncomfortable, then the chances are that we’ll also look uncomfortable when we go out. Sometimes it’s best to dress in a way that makes you feel confident, even if you’re worried about looking less glamorous.

Resolution #8: Wear Less

According to celebrity stylist Jen Rade who has consulted with celebs like Angelina Jolie, less is more. However, she cautions about flaunting too much flesh. According to Rade, people should only flash one part of their body at a time. If you’re wearing a dress without a back, then make sure that your legs are covered up. Equally, if you’re showing off your legs, wear something with long sleeves. It all helps to heighten the mystery and leaves a little to the imagination.

Resolution #9: Put On Your Watch

Watches are one of those timeless accessories that go with practically any outfit. What’s more, if you buy yourself a great watch, it can often last for the rest of your life. Watches work really well with little black dresses and double up as accessories.

 

Resolution #10: Construct Wardrobe Ensembles

 

One of the reasons you don’t wear half of your clothes is that they’re not part of an ensemble. Outfits are hard to put together from scratch, so get working ahead of time to figure out what goes with what. Put outfits next to each other in your wardrobe so that they’re ready to go.
