New year, new decade, new start..everyone's talking about making new year resolutions, but what are your style resolutions to adhere to over the next 12 months? After all, like fashion on the runway, our style constantly reinvents itself and evolves throughout our life, being reincarnated in more wonderful, awe-inspiring and fabulous forms over time. Do you dress differently from how you did last year? How about the last two, three, five years? This is another great reason why New Year is the perfect time to reflect on our lives simultaneously and where we want ourselves to be next time the 01/01 bomb rolls around again.
My Style Resolutions
1. Colour abundance! Lately I've noticed that everything I've bought recently has been plain and either black or grey. I'm glad to finally have that versatility in my wardrobe, but a small amount of colour is never a bad thing! It's hard to pick appropriate colours to go with my hair colour (currently orange with small amounts of blonde and brown), but I'm going to go for beautiful and exciting colour regardless.
2. Girlify to the extreme. When I was younger, I was dressed in ugly pinafores and stiff long skirts as well as horrendous summer school dresses which I absolutely despised; no wonder I resolved to wear nothing but jeans for about 12 years whenever I wasn't in school. It's enough reason to make anyone hate skirts and dresses! However recently, I adore both and have started buying more skirts and dresses than ever. It's often difficult to find pieces like these which suit one's shape perfectly, though it's definitely something which needs to happen this year! I want gorgeous, girly dresses and fabulously voluminous skirts which look completely stunning.
3. Experiment without fear. Trying on different styles is a huge part of constructing a new look - even if you think something will look horrible on you, try it anyway: you may just find your favourite new piece of clothing. I'm still getting used to taking chances with new styles, but once you do it, you'll never regret it! I've found some lovely things in the past year that I've taken the risk to try despite not liking it on the hanger, and I shall continue this to find even more beautiful pieces.
