A new year has dawned and it’s the perfect time for change. If you’re looking to get a makeover or style update, then you’ve come to the right place. Check out our tips to ensure a stylish year is on the cards.

Evaluate your assets

Before you start a style revolution, it’s critical to examine what your assets are, as well as the type of look you want. This will make it easier to plan what types of clothing you’ll want to wear going forward. After all, the hallmark of style is choosing items that flatter your body and highlight your own style preferences.

Do a stock take

Before you start making any additions to your wardrobe, you’ll need to take stock of what you already have. Look at your closet and get rid of anything that doesn’t fit you, is stained, torn or faded or that you’re unlikely to wear again.

Consider the classics

Every woman should own a few basic pieces that form the crux of her wardrobe. Make sure you have at least one of each of these for the perfect mix and match style:

Selecting key pieces

Pre-plan your outfits to make sure that your look is always well put together.

Follow this fashion formula for great results: Choose one focal point to your outfit and work around that. For example, you can pair a printed blouse with a simple skirt or slacks and then wear neutral accessories. Alternatively, wear a basic dress and then go for statement shoes as the focal point of your look.
