January has always been (if not most of the time) our default button to reset our lives. We try to start the year right by applying all the things we learned from the previous year, or for some of us, we just simply want to accomplish new things.
So whether you’re trying to be a morning person or lessening your Grab expenses, it’s always a great way to have your New Year’s resolutions. But in the midst of all these resolution extravaganzas, you must also consider taking your style game up a notch. Here are five style resolutions we all need to make this new year:
Stop Playing Safe, Start Experimenting
Come to think of it, what really sets style influencers apart from others is their sense of style. Sometimes, in order for you to develop your own personal style is to really try different things—take risks. However, this doesn’t mean that you’ll shop for countless clothes. Start experimenting on what you have in your closet. You’ll be surprised how many looks can you create.
Invest In Fine Jewelry
Investing in fine jewelry is not an easy resolution to achieve. But it’s always a brilliant idea to start setting aside some money and give yourself an exquisite gift, which in turn will definitely complete your look whenever you have social gatherings. As what Bea Alonzo said, putting on a shimmering jewelry “can totally transform an outfit.” In addition, if you would look at it in an investment point-of-view, you won’t lose your money, unlike investing in the equity market (since there’s always a probability).
Donate/Sell Old Clothes
It’s normal for people to hoard sometimes, hence, the term “shop till you drop.” But with fast-fashion becoming prevalent nowadays, the hoarding phenomenon may have somehow gotten out of control. And since we have several e-commerce websites that cater around the globe today, there’s really no excuse not to find a way to sell your clothes. If you’re feeling generous, donating it to non-government organizations is always a great idea.
Have Your Clothes Altered (If It Needs To Be)
While there so much hassle to go and wait for your clothes to be altered, it really pays to look as if your clothes are tailored to perfection into your body. And to have them altered will make your life easier. Instead of folding the ends of your trousers or tucking in your dress shirt because it’s too long, it will be much easier to style yourself.
If You Don’t Need It, Don’t Buy It
Let’s all admit it—once your favorite retail store begins to mark down its prices you’ll buy at least one item. But in all honesty, you don’t really need it. One reason? Your closet is already (if not almost) full. This year, it’s all about taking into the heart the value of frugality. You’ve heard it from Senator Escudero himself during Heart Evangelista-Escudero’s vlog: “Anything on sale, if you don’t need it, is expensive.”
