Get It Now: New Year’s Style Resolutions

January 2, 2012 • Get It Now, Magazine

There’s something about the New Year that inspires everyone to think about making positive changes – and personal style is no exception. Here are a couple solutions to common style issues.

Brightening Up – Adding a brilliant blue scarf is a great way to liven up a basic black, gray, or brown outfit, and something cashmere like this Jil Sander scarf is as warm as it is luxurious, making it a perfect winter treat.

Reducing The Black – While we all love basic black, sometimes it gets a little somber. That’s when you start mixing in other neutrals, such as these gray velvet jeans by Mother Denim with just enough texture to keep things interesting (but they’ll still look fabulous with black).

Investing In Quality – H&M and Zara can be great for a quick trendy fix, but at a certain point a lady needs some refinement in her wardrobe. Finding the perfect black blazer that goes with everything is one way to upgrade your look, and this impeccably cut Theyskens’ Theory jacket definitely fits the bill.

The finishing Touches – Accessories are another way to step it up, and putting on some sparkle in the form of a statement necklace, earrings, or bracelet is a key way to take a day ensemble into evening. For instance, a bib necklace like this one by Kate Spade is the ideal addition to a basic tee or dress.

Signature Pieces – Personal style is what distinguishes a fashionista from a truly stylish lady, and the satisfaction of finding your own signature pieces is a feeling that’s hard to describe – but you know it when it happens. Personally, I love the edgy-ness that biker boots lend to most outfits, so a pair like these Jimmy Choos is an essential component.
