Our New Year Style Resolutions

Our New Year Style Resolutions

Whether your New Year resolutions are health, career or lifestyle related, we hope you enter January feeling empowered for a year that can only be bigger and better than let’s just put it this way… what was a crummy year! The end of the year is always a beautiful time to reflect on what went well, and not so well so you can put your best foot forward for a phenomenal year ahead. Inject your newfound sense of “new beginnings” into levelling up your own personal style. We know our #reviewgirls already have styling down to a tee, but at least one of these tips will send you into expert level and have you kicking your 2021 goals in style.

As we look to the year ahead we think what better time to evaluate our relationship with our beloved wardrobe. A sign of a good and healthy wardrobe relationship should result in you walking out of the home feeling and looking your best. If your year has consisted of a few “I having nothing to wear!” or frantic digging through drawers to find the perfect top to match with your favourite skirt, then this might just be the perfect time to employ some of our New Year Style resolutions!

Thou shall embrace colour

We can totally appreciate that neutral colourways are an easier styling option, but we aren’t looking for easy – we are striving for fabulousness! Review takes the hard work out of choosing the right colour to pair with your new favourite pieces by releasing collections in an array of complementary colours and tones. Pay close attention to how the model or Review community style their pieces to get a great idea of which styles match best with that item you have your heart set on.

Having a core range of classic tops, pants and jackets that are guaranteed to blend with all your other items will make life much easier for those times you are in a rush or when you need a perfect outfit finisher. You may often hear of this referred to as having a “capsule wardrobe” or in other words, a wardrobe that pairs together cohesively no matter what you mix and match.

Thou shall have fun with fashion

Thou shall have fun with fashion

Have you ever had a look at the latest fashion magazine and thought “wow, what a beautiful outfit – but I could never wear that”? Well #reviewgirl, we are here to encourage you to step out of the comfort zone just a little bit. By making at least one empowered fashion statement a month you can gain a lovely confidence boost (and many compliments)! Instead of entering the year with the same basics on rotation, we encourage you to add a fun pop of print with a new hair scarf, or bright colour block with a new skirt or top. Once you start playing with your fashion, you won’t be able to stop and let’s face it... basic is not very fun!

There is something so peaceful about waking up in the morning and having your perfectly coordinated outfit laid out ready for you to seize the day in! By taking a little extra time the evening before when you are in a relaxed state of mind, you often have a lot more creative and exciting outfit ideas which lead to a perfectly executed style. Just this one small change can make an epic difference!

This one in particular goes out to those who already have one million and one outfit options but want to continue to spice things up and stay up to date with the current trends. Accessories have the super power of elevating a look. Just by swapping or changing your accessories you can create a whole new vibe! A great way to refresh your favourite wardrobe options is by incorporating a new hair accessory, jewellery, handbags or shoes.

Show up in the world representing not where you are right now but where you want to be! If your New Year resolution is to get that next job promotion, step into the office in smart and classic pieces that are freshly ironed and ready to be seen. If you are aspiring to feel more confident and make new friends, let your personal style shine with fashion trends that make you feel good and align you with like-minded people.

Take this moment to evaluate just how much of your wardrobe you actually wear. Quite often there are at least 10% of your clothes that ends up collecting dust hanging in your wardrobe and just waiting for a new home. If you haven’t worn it all year, then it’s safe to say it may be time to pass it on to someone else who will love, value and appreciate it even more than you currently do. Passing on once dearly loved items is an incredible act of kindness and will leave you with good karma for doing something charitable. Added bonus: your favourites will have even more spotlight in your newly arrange closet.

Easier said than done though right? If you tick more than one of the below items, we think it might be time to let her go.
