When one year ends, and another begins, we’re often inspired to reinvent ourselves or create that list of New Year’s resolutions. Maybe you’re hoping to try a new sport, a new type of food, or maybe you’re feeling stuck in a style rut and are craving inspiration.
Whatever the case may be, the new year is the perfect opportunity to start over. There are so many unique ways you can have fun with fashion when it comes to style. At the end of the day, it’s about adding your personality to whatever clothes and accessories are hung up in your closet in the new year.
Are you thinking of diving in and building a whole new wardrobe? Let’s get started. We’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to help you channel that ‘new year, new you’ attitude.
Step 1: Choose the Right Fit
No matter what type of clothes you buy, if they don’t fit properly, not only will they not look flattering, but you’ll feel uncomfortable and won’t be able to wear them with confidence. Finding the right fit is essential. Once you know your size and which cuts fit your shape, you can buy clothes that both reflect your new style and also fit you like a glove.
Step Two: Discover New Brands
If you’ve felt stuck in a rut, style-wise, the new year is the perfect opportunity to discover new brands. Step out of your comfort zone and explore brands that you’ve never previously worn before, whether it’s a new shoe company or the new online Azzyland Shop, with one-of-a-kind pieces.
Step Three: Find Your Basics
When it comes to building a new wardrobe, your basics are the most fundamental part, especially if you’re starting from scratch. Basics are key pieces in a wardrobe that you can build around. They allow you to try out new trends while still grounding your style. Most basics are considered a quality pair of denim, t-shirts, and perhaps a nice coat or pair of shoes that you can style multiple ways. When you invest in quality basics, you can incorporate more cost-effective pieces and have fun experimenting, knowing you still have those anchored items.
Step Four: Take Advantage of Accessories
Accessories are a phenomenal way to add color, texture, and personality to any wardrobe. If you’re looking to reinvest your style, you can use accessories like jewelry, bags, and hats to help. Whether that means bold neons, velvets, or perhaps accessories with spikes for more attitude, there’s no wrong answer.
Step Five: Wear Everything with Confidence
No matter what new style you’re trying out, if you’re able to proudly walk into a room with whatever you have on, you’re already where you need to be. Clothes are a tool that we use to express ourselves and our personalities. As you begin to design your new wardrobe, make sure every piece you purchase is worn with assurance because that’s how you turn heads and inspire others to do the same.
