The start of a new year is always a great time to start new things. One thing that can be added to your list of New Year’s resolutions is a wardrobe update. Your clothing says a lot about you. So, if your stuff is old and out of date….well, that’s probably not the statement you want to make!
Kick off 2012 right by updating your wardrobe or even changing your look! If you usually wear a
classic style, consider spicing your look up a bit by going glam. Maybe you’re more of the sporty type and want to be more trendy but don’t know how. Or, if you are getting unwanted attention, you could tone things down from a sexy look to something more casual. No matter what look you want we’ve got the tips and the advice to help navigate your way through the world of fashion and style.
Sporty to Sexy:
If your wardrobe consists of mostly sneakers, jeans, and your favorite team shirt, then your look is sporty. If you are ready to spice things up a bit, and go from tomboy to boy-catcher or jock to stud, there are a few easy tricks you can use to change your look.
One of the easiest things to do is dress up a pair of your own jeans with a sparkly top, high heels and a fashionable clutch. For the guys, simply trading in the sneakers and team shirt for some black oxfords, a black T-shirt and a sport coat is all you need to make a sexier statement. You’ve instantly transformed from backyard softball game to club ready!
Glam to Casual:
What would you find if you looked in a glam girl’s closet? Sparkly tops and dresses, high heeled shoes, and lots of accessories. So, how can you go from glam to casual? First things first, a casual look usually translates to ‘less is more.’ That means, less sparkle and shine and more muted, neutral tones. If you have a simple black A-line skirt, pair it with ballet flats and a button down shirt. You still get a dressy look but with a casual feel.
Casual to Trendy:
For most people, this is probably the hardest wardrobe change to make. Most of the time we settle for what’s simple and think only celebrity “it” girls and guys know how to dress trendy. Not so! If you’re not sure what to do, sometimes just looking at pictures of your favorite celebrities can help you figure out what works for you. You might even find that you already have a lot of those items in your closet and just didn’t know how to put them together!
Let’s say you have a pair of slacks and a cable knit sweater. Simply accessorize with a scarf, fedora, beaded bracelets and wedge heels and you’re rocking a trendy look! Guys can also get a fashionable look just by wearing a military style hat, leather wrist strap and loafers. Many other popular looks can be created just by piecing together what you already have with some new things and adding the right accessories.
