2022 is here, and we’re embracing it with positivity. It presents the opportunity for a fresh start; new year, new intentions and new styles to keep your modest closet stylish. So, why not join us in making a few fashion-focused New Year’s Resolutions to kick things off? Here are just a few of the good habits we plan to stick to this year – and you might want to try them, too…
1. I Will… Keep My Closet Tidy
There’s no better time to clear out a messy closet. Start ‘spring’ cleaning in earnest by going through every drawer and cupboard you own, and bidding farewell to anything that doesn’t spark joy. Then, organize cleared-out items into three groups: pieces you’re donating, clothes you’re giving to friends, and items with upcycling potential.
2. I Will… Work On My Capsule Wardrobe
Playful prints and flourishing florals belong in every closet, but a capsule wardrobe is key to making everyday dressing quick and easy. What you need is a series of goes-with-everything basics that transition from season to season. You’re looking for high-quality, comfortable pieces that pair as well with daytime looks as they do with evening outfits. Think, cotton t-shirts in a range of colors, a denim midi skirt with a flawless fit (like our signature Remi skirt), and a chic blazer in a neutral tone that can be layered over
3. I Will… Stop Saving My Favorite Things for ‘Best’
How many times do you tuck a dress away for a special occasion, only to find you rarely wear it? Yep, we’re guilty, too – but we’re ditching that attitude for 2022. From here on out, every day is a special occasion as far as our closet is concerned. So, bring on brunches in our favorite floaty skirts and date nights at home in the dreamiest dresses. Need some inspiration? The styles above were made for dressing up every occasion; the perfect mood-boosters.
4. I Will… Experiment with Color
So many of us play it safe when it comes to the colors of our clothing. Sound familiar? Then make this the year you go bolder with your palette. Have fun and opt for statement shades. Neutrals are chic, but so are cobalt blues, oceanic teals and magenta pinks. Embrace bright dresses and skirts, or edge your way in with a vibrant sweater or cardigan. Soon, you’ll find yourself reaching for mood-boosting colors by default.
5. I Will… Invest in Accessories
Accessories are the unsung heroes of this season’s most stylish outfits. So, why do so many of us underestimate just how impactful they are to a final look? We’re not just talking about bags and shoes, but extra touches that add fun and flair to an ensemble. Opt for belts around the waist of a maxi dress, or a stylish wide brim hat to take your style to the next level.
