Have you made your New Year’s fashion resolutions that will transform you into the goddess you always wanted to be? No? Don’t worry, there’s still some time for you to set a plan in place.
Fashion resolutions aren’t just great for transforming your appearance, sculpting your personality, and reinventing your personal style, but they are great ways to ditch the things that didn’t work and save some hard-earned nuggets in the process. Here are the top five fashion resolutions you want to realize in 2018.
Be yourself, but be stylish as well
There is not a better feeling than walking around knowing you are a unique snowflake in a sea of similar outfits and dated designs. So you want to elevate your look from the norm, break the monotony, and come up with a unique angle. Don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as you might think.
The trick is to wear your carefully selected pieces with pride, but also to choose a look that resonates with your personality. You want to mix and match colours and patterns within your chosen style to always look different from the rest, but infinitely stylish as well. Remember ladies, it’s not just about being different, it’s about looking smashing too.
Splurge on the things you’ll wear frequently
The time for obsessive binge shopping is over, 2018 is all about sustainability and ethics within the fashion industry. Not only do you want to carefully choose the pieces you’ll wear frequently, but you need to downright fall in love with them.
So don’t just buy the clothes you like, instead buy the clothes you’d want to marry as if they were Tom Hiddleston petting a rescued puppy while penetrating your soul with his piercing blue eyes. Don’t worry, you won’t seem repetitive if you learn how to mix and match various pieces.
Get ready for the summer
One thing is for sure, summer is way closer than you think, and while January is not the time to be thinking about buying all your beachside essentials, you should have in mind all of the things you will need for your 2018 summer fun.
Along with your usual beach towel, “sunbrella”, and open-toed vintage sandals, you want to choose stylish swimwear to accentuate your features. Remember, a bikini or a one-piece is supposed to tell a story about your personality, it needs to evoke emotions, both in you, and everyone who sees you. So choose wisely.
Get creative with your statements
The accessories and statement pieces you choose can make or break your look; they can portray the right story to others, or they can confuse them completely. While you do want to preserve a certain balance between your outfit pieces and your accessories, you do want them to pop a bit in order to accentuate a certain piece of who you are.
For instance, a stylish pashmina scarf will always describe an image of intelligence, uniqueness, and boldness. On the other hand, use statement earrings, artisan rings, and unconventional necklaces to show off your wild, outgoing nature.
Wear only flattering pieces

Finally, you need to promise yourself that you will only wear the pieces that flatter your physique, accentuate your beautiful features, and hide the parts you want to work on. Start with the shape of your body and only choose the clothes that fit you perfectly.
Don’t forget about your eyes, lips, and hair, as they too can be accentuated by flattering garments. Think about the colours that best suit your personality as well as your outward appearance and refrain from choosing patterns that don’t resonate with your taste fully. Chances are, others won’t be too thrilled either.
The New Year is just a few days away, and the time is better than ever to set up your new non-negotiables and greet 2018 with unwavering resolve. You have the power to make it happen ladies, so use these tips to make next year the most stylish year of your life.
