New Year, New You: Fashion Resolutions for the New Year {Part Two}

After our first fashion resolution of the year to Be BOLD, we are moving right along to our second resolution. (Quick question: Were you able to incorporate some bold pieces into your wardrobe?)

The second Fashion New Year’s Resolution is to Be Creative. “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak” – Rachel Zoe.

I truly believe this and why I am always looking for new ways to add some creative pieces to my outfits. Here are three ways you can add a little flair to your outfits.

        1.   Wear a Statement Necklace: this is one of my favorite ways to be creative. A great statement necklace always closes the deal on any outfit.

Try this one from Target for a simple look (jade color). Or for a cool look try this from ASOS (black). Or if you’re so inclined go with this piece from Anthropologie (gold):

      2.  Add Texture to your outfits: texture!! I just love how a little can go a long way in jazzing up any outfit.

– For just a little bit extra, try a studded purse like these satchels from TJ Maxx (orange, navy):

– Upgrade your footwear with some patterns like this floral Python print:

– Or add a bit of edge to your outfit with this quilted leather jacket from the Limited:


     3.  Add Frills or Feathers to your outfit: now this may not be for everyone or could easily get out of hand, but I think a little can go a long way to add fun to an outfit.

For a little bit of emphasis, try this flirty dress from Modcloth (with a statement necklace OR those heels above perhaps?):



For a little more fun, try this ruffled sleeve blouse from Target:


And if you’re feeling especially adventurous (for my taste) try this faux feather vest from Asos:


How are you going to BE Creative with your fashion this year?

Stay tuned for Part Three of our fashion resolutions!!
