Making regular resolutions for the new year is great but sometimes we can all get stuck in a style rut and need to switch things up a little. This year I've decided to put a little fashion spin on the classic idea of resolutions and list out things I'd like to change or try when it comes to my style this year!
1. Invest In Staples
Last year I got into such a bad habit of buying things that I knew I didn't need, or worse, that I was only going to wear a certain amount of times before I got bored. This year, I plan on investing in staples, like this grey knit - a must have in anyones wardrobe, especially with the weather here in Ireland. I love the fact that this is simple, can be paired with just about anything but still has an edge with the zip detail around the hem.
2. Embrace Print
At the beginning of 2013, I started a small obsession with prints after I purchased a gorgeous pair of printed, draw-string trousers from Sandro, but somehow the obsession didn't quite continue throughout the year. In 2014, I plan on purchasing a few key printed pieces that I can welcome into my wardrobe! I love this printed jacket from Oscar de la Renta - a girl can dream!
3. Experiment With Colour
Lets face it, we can all get a tiny bit complacent when it comes to colour and I'm a huge culprit of this - black looks good on everyone AND it's slimming! But this year I'm determined to inject a splash of colour into my wardrobe, even if that does mean teaming it with other staple black pieces - it's a start!
Last year was my year for going accessory crazy! This year I intend to keep that up. Ring stacks are my favourite!
Every year, I fall a victim to an unorganised closet. Not so much messy, just unorganised. Most mornings are like a scene from Clueless. This year I'm hoping to keep my closet in shape - that way I can see my clothes more clearly and it will take much less time to get ready in the mornings. To be completely honest, I think this is going to be my hardest style resolution but fingers crossed for success!
What are your style resolutions for 2014?
