Now that 2013 has come and gone, you’re focused on the year ahead. Many people like to make resolutions each January that serve as a goal for the upcoming year. It may sound nice to promise to work out more often, but a lot of people eventually lose sight of their fitness resolutions. This year, why not make some fashion resolutions? You may find that it’s a lot easier to commit to than you think!
Clean Out Your Closet
Cleaning out your closet at the start of the year can instantly make you feel refreshed. If you haven’t worn something in a year, get rid of it. Chances are you probably won’t wear it again, and it’s only taking up valuable space in your closet. Uncluttering your closet will allow you to get a better idea of what’s in your closet, and you may come across fabulous things you forgot you had.
Wear More Color
It’s always easy to reach for the neutrals in your closet, especially this time of year. When you’re getting ready in the morning, opting for a black top and black pants seems like a no-brainer. While this is a safe option, commit to wearing more colors. You may even find that your mood improves the more you start wearing colors. Once you start trying to incorporate some bright colors into your outfit, you will find that getting dressed is much more fun!
Test Out a New Trend
Are you one of those people who avoids trends at all costs? Maybe you don’t like to spend the money for something that may be out of style this time next year. Make a resolution to try out two fashion trends this year. You could try out a new trend in the spring, and one in the fall. If you don’t want to splurge on a trendy item, look no further than Forever 21 or H&M. These two retailers are known for their trendy clothes and low prices. That way, you won’t feel as guilty about the money you spent a year from now!
Set a Shopping Budget
Perhaps you’re one of those people who enjoys a little retail therapy. Sometimes though, you may enjoy it a little too much, and end up spending much more than you anticipated. Don’t worry, this happens to everyone at some point. This year, make a shopping budget for each month so you can have a clear picture of how much you can spend. Having a budget written out will help you stick to it and prevent you from those shopping trips that leave you with buyer’s remorse.
