With the start of another year comes the same empty promises: working longer, training harder, eating better. But with 80% of resolutions falling by the wayside by February, it pays to come up with something a little more realistic.
Building a wardrobe filled with all the right pieces takes time, so why not get ahead of yourself and start now? Here are the style resolutions to see you through 2018 – make them count.
Pay attention to outerwear
Your outer layer is, by default, the first thing someone will notice about you. So, whether you’re wrapping up for winter or going lightweight for summer, you’ll want to get it right. The right piece of outerwear has the ability to completely revamp your outfit, so learn what works for you and never leave the house without it. Heavy overcoats, boxy bombers and tailored blazers work perfectly for most occasions, so start from there and begin building up your collection.
Styling it out in a sharp suit is one of the fastest ways to smarten up your act – and put you in the right frame of mind for the working day. Regardless of whether your nine-to-five requires you to wear a suit on a daily basis, it’s worth having a couple of classic styles on standby, ready and waiting for those days when you know you’ll need that something extra...
When the first few months of the year tend to mean that you’re battling the elements, it can be tempting to layer up in as many old sweaters as possible. Your new wardrobe should fall somewhere perfectly in the middle of style and functionality, so reach for versatile knitwear that’s as comfy as it is cool, and looks great for both work and play.
