Posted Jan 24 2013 12:49pm
The New Year is a great time to update your wardrobe, whether by shopping for new things or fixing what you already have. Here are 13 ways to do a little of both. By the end of this list, your closet should look worthy of a magazine feature. 1. Make a statement. An abundance of rings or other statement jewelry will add luster to the plainest of outfits, while a unique and interesting design can turn into a conversation piece. 2. State it plainly. When you do decide to wear a statement piece, everything else you wear should be suitably subdued. Plain tops, bottoms and one-piece garments make a great canvas to start painting on the rest of your look with accessories and unique accents. 3. Make-up. A sweep of eyeliner, a dash of lipstick. Make-up is your friend. Use it to complete your outfit. This season, wine-colored lips, smoky eyes (in black, brown and even green) and just a bit of glitter are all worth a try. 4. Crop. From hair to trouser leg, 2013 fashions are out to prove that sometimes less really is more. If you aren’t ready to let go, faux bobs are a great way to go short without actually cutting anything off (the casual elegance of the hairstyle is a bonus). Cropped—a. k. a. "bitin"—pants provide the perfect opportunity to Isabel Marant show off your most fabulous pair of high heels. If you’re feeling crafty, you can crop them yourself! All you need is a pair of scissors, a needle, and thread. Do the same with your jacket sleeves and you’ll have several new pieces to mix and match. 5. Lace it up. Ruffles, mesh and lace are all the sugar and spice your clothes need this year. Sew a ribbon along the hem of those pants you just cropped, or add a few ruffles to a plain collar. A tulle skirt is also a great investment and a quick way to prettify any outfit. 6. Denim, denim, www.isabelmarant.tm.fr denim! Every boy or girl needs a good pair of jeans that can be worn with almost anything and for almost anything. Need I say Isabel Marant Bazil Suede And Snake-Effect Sneakers In Gris more 7. Wear vintage. Do you hate hand-me-downs from your mom or your titas Try going through them again. Many of those old boxes and cabinets contain diamonds in the rough that just need a little bit of airing out to reveal the sparkle. The 60s are returning in 2013. Think mod, big stripes, black and white, pencil skirts and classic florals. 8. Walk tall. Killer heels are as in as ever—that’s a given—but some unexpected footwear fashions are threatening to steal the limelight this year. They’re not for everyone, but creepers and wedge sneakers are turning up in Isabel Marant Sneaker shoe stores all over. If you want to make a fun, boyish statement, this could be the way. 9. Take risks. It’s a hackneyed expression, but because it’s worth repeating. If you’re curious about what you might look like wearing that daring piece, try it on because you’ll never know until you do. Be adventurous and try new things. And I’m not just talking about clothes. 10. Invest in the gorgeous. Speaking of that daring piece: if it looks good on you and you have the budget, buy it! You deserve to look good. Some winning pieces are bold and practical at the same time, like a pair of animal print loafers Isabel Marant Bobby Wedge Suede Sneaker In Khaki. If you stumble upon such a piece, don’t let it go because it is worth every cent.
