Have you been keeping up with your New Year’s Resolutions?
We think one of the easiest to follow is simply amping up your everyday attire.
Make more of an effort in the way you dress,
and take time to create an outfit.
Whether it’s running errands or going out at night,
try making simple changes or small additions to your ensemble.
Here are some of our favorite looks…
Instead of sporting old jeans and a T-shirt to run errands,
try a colored, straight/skinny jean. Loose layers with a sleek belt show your shape and keep you comfortable.

For those who spend their afternoons in a classroom,
don’t dress like you’re at the gym.
Or asleep, or like it’s laundry day.
Amp up the basic jeans and T with the right accessories.
Keep in mind color combinations and you’ll never dress boring again.
(Louis Vuitton backpack $648, necklaces $22 & $18, bracelet by Pickles Accessories $48, size 37.5 Hollywould flats $58, Generra vest $34, Demylee shirt $26, Citizens jeans $50)
If you’re a working woman play up the classics.
Black slacks and a white shirt are always chic.
Try incorporating different textures with a pop of color.
The luxe fabrics will make you feel beautiful without looking flashy.
You could even take on a signature shade, forming a Fashionista’s Uniform of black, white, and your color.
(Vintage handbag $26, Nine West heels $36, vintage 50s/60’s jacket $68, Jill Stuart top $88, Midi tank $18, size 6 Jenne Maac pants NEW $60)
Even your “going out” look could use an update.
There’s a new way to dress up for the night; show less skin, not too flashy, and add a little edge.
Instead of a mini skirt, rock a pair of graphic skinny jeans.
Not feeling that bold? Go for black, grey, or a dark indigo.
Showing a little decolletage never hurt, and a pendant necklace elongates the body.
The best way to work it? A killer pair of heels; they add an unexpected element to your outfit and make your legs (&butt) look great!
