3 Ways: Style Resolutions

The ball has dropped and it is finally 2011! With the New Year come new resolutions and we have whittled down this list to our top three style resolutions of the year. What- you didn’t think that your style needed resolutions all on its own? Here are three ways to pump up the fashion this year. What are your style resolutions?

 

Color Me Pretty

Yes, it is cold outside, but that’s no excuse to only wear black and the occasional gray. Splash a bit of color into your wardrobe this winter with bold touches of bright. Style note- If Anna Wintour loves color, you should too! Start off with shades of purple and then work your way brighter. Here are some of our favorite ways to infuse color into a white winter while still looking season appropriate.

Standout Staples

With the New Year comes new investment pieces. Don’t replace your favorite black bag with, well… a black bag. It’s hard to retire the things we love, so instead of desperately trying to find a replacement for something you never want to let go of invest in something a little less basic and make it your new staple. These are some of the investment pieces we have our eyes on in 2011.

Mixin’ Vixen

Since you’ve gotten a head start this year on adding color to an all black season, be brave and take on mixing prints! It’s second nature to our fashionista stylists and is easy to master.  A couple tips: a) Keep one print in a neutral color palette and go super bright with the other, b) stripes + floral is always a winning combo and c) if you only want to get your toes wet, try a patterned pair of tights and a patterned frock. Here are some winning combinations.
