It's the second day of 2013, and fashion resolutions are on our mind. We are sure along with a list of other things-to-be, you would have rounded up yours too. If you haven't this list of 7 will make sure you look your best. Looking at other media to stay inspired, fashion faux-paus to avoid, evolving your style, organizing better- it's all there !
Fashion Resolution #1 - Say no to Leggings as Pants
What we mean by our statement is - it's publicly inappropriate to be flaunting your lady parts with sheer leggings and short tops. If it is a shirt dress or a skater dress we understand. Otherwise, please don't fall into the trap even though your favorite celebrity advocates it.
Fashion Resolution #2 - Take a Fashion risk
Breaking away from your comfort zone can always be intimidating. If you dress rather sober colored pants could have been your feat; in case you are conscious of your legs, buying that mini skirt could have been yours. We all have our reservations but fashion risks are the only way we can evolve. On our list for 2013 is trying a few beauty looks for now, but along the year we would like to maintain an adventurous spirit. A braided bob, slick hair with bold brows and red lips and a bright scarf on the head. What risks are you taking?
Fashion Resolution #3 - Watch Fashion Movies
Yes there is a checklist of must-watch fashion movies in our office, that keeps us inspired. We say every fashionista worth her name should have one. Finding time amidst grueling schedules we have managed to view and cherish a lot of movies like - Breakfast at Tiffany's, Coco Avant Chanel, The September Issue, SATC movie series etc. But still there is a long way to go. We promise ourselves to watch Heathers, Blow Up and Lagerfeld Confidential this time around. But any suggestions on what else we can add to our list?
Fashion Resolution #4 - Wear Prints
We loved printed pants in 2012, but are willing to go overboard this time around. Prints on prints is also on our list for days we feel quirky, for other days single printed items should suffice. If you haven't caught the print bug yet, now is is the time !
Fashion Resolution #5 - Get Organized
This time we are not only thinking of organizing but have a solid how-to plan too. Organizing your wardrobe is one thing but we are here to go beyond. A vallet stand is on our shopping list. We intend to decide our ensemble in advance at night, assemble it neatly on the stand and get dressed quickly in the morning. Also, deciding your outfit while standing in front of your wardrobe is no linger necessary. Be the techie fashionista and download Cloth app. It let's you click pictures of your looks and categorize well. Now you can view your wardrobe and previous combinations while commuting. Easy as anything !
Fashion Resolution #6 - Shop Online More
This point is not here because we are online retailers too. But for the simple fact that it is easier and satisfying. Shopping online gives you an advantage of browsing a huge variety, compare prices and find products from the world over without the need of being present physically. Also there is nothing like the comfort of your own home is there. We are ourselves hooked with it, and you should give it a shot too if you haven't by now.
Fashion Resolution #7 - Informed Fashion
We believe in dressing according to your body type, occasion, color, age et all. These parameters matter and being informed about them guarantees you a more successful look. Staying aware of trends and knowing what to choose always wins over following trends blindly. Also knowing your perfect bra size (get yourself measured professionally!) can make a huge difference in your outwear. Trust us, the the right undergarments are important.
