Resolve to: stop wearing blah blah blah neutrals every day and add more color to your wardrobeDare to be bold with color this year and gradually transition from wearing your usual black with black, or grey with grey. Don't leat color intimidate you, just try reaching for one bold color to pair with your favorite neutrals. It will brighten your day in more colorful ways than one.
Resolve to: embrace your feminine sideBows. Baubles. Ruffles. Satin. Florals. Chiffon. Sweeten your mood by embracing your inner girly girl. Choose one feminine element to soften your look and feel innocently sexy.
Resolve to: call a truce with your under-warsInnocent until proven guilty, huh? Well, we say innocent until those granny panties are exposed! Rips, tears, stains, OH MY! Even if no one sees them but you, opt for sexier, prettier bras and undies this year that have more fun than holes in them. No matter if you prefer cotton, satin, prints or solids, make a choice to bring peace to your under-wars.
Resolve to: ban sweatsuit SaturdaysFor some odd reason, comfy and casual in America seems to equal schleppy and sloppy. Take a stand against head to toe sweatsuits, and spice up your comfort with much needed style.
Resolve to: get out of my jeans-and-tee rutThis year, mix up your standard jeans and a t-shirt look with cooler, more stylish pairings. Save cash by wearing your fave jeans from 2008 and spend a few bucks on new ways to reinvent your look.
