It’s a cliché but there is something about a New Year that inspires a wardrobe revamp, whether that is updating your closet with a few pieces that are full of inspiration, or completely updating your style. Here are a few of our style resolutions:
Indulge in Quality not Quantity: For basic pieces like a black blazer, pick one amazing option and wear it for years, like this casual one from Boundary & Co. that would be perfect with jeans.
Invest in Neutrals: As tempting as it might be to buy the season’s hottest color, buying neutrals or the shades that look amazing on you are always the best choices. A perfectly cut camel pencil skirt like this one from Banana Republic will look fabulous for years.
Determine to Buy Once: Do you have a favorite watch or pair of earrings? Splurge on your favorite and wear it for years. This two-toned Marc by Marc Jacobs watch is a perfect example of a piece that will go with almost everything.
Wear your Best Colors: Invest in cashmere in the shades that flatter you most, like this cobalt blue drape neck style by Ann Taylor that would work on most complexions (it also comes in equally elegant shades of coral and turquoise).
Splurge on only the Basics: Classic boots, bags and pants are always splurge-worthy choices, especially these cognac Ferragamo riding boots that would make any casual outfit something special.
