Along with eating better, getting organized and getting more sleep (you know, the usual!) we like to make a few style resolutions at the start of each year. Small changes that push our style in a fresh new direction, or that simply make getting dressed each morning a little more enjoyable!style resolutions1. Play with texture: Pairing textures together in one look is a great way to make even simple pieces appear more luxe and fashion forward. This is even easier in a chic dress that pairs multiple fabrics, such as boucle and terry.

2. Wear more color: Especially in a city like NYC, it’s easy to fall into a solid black rut. Burst out of the slump by wearing bright colors, which can easily be color blocked for style that is every bit as easy as black.

3. Play with the unexpected: Use trends as a starting point for creating unique and personal style. Sequins and sparkles are way too much fun to be reserved for a big night out. They look unexpected and special in mint green, and add a fun twist to a brunch look when paired with a casual jacket. Take the leather trend in a new direction, pairing it with hot pink and flirty hemline.

4. Dress up for lazy days: This one sounds a little complicated, but really isn’t! What you wear can definitely effect how you feel, so why not dress up? Switch out a t-shirt and jeans for a just as comfortable dress next Sunday, and let’s see how the mood shifts 🙂

5. Switch up black and white: Black and white never goes out of style, but we vote for switching it up for a fresh take on the classic. Sheer fabric, a faux two-piece silhouette, and feminine textures keep the look feeling new.
