How to make yourself feel great again

Having a wardrobe makeover is one of the best ways to make yourself feel great and provides you with that feeling of renovation in the new year. While gym memberships, diets and new habits might make you feel great at the start of the year, inevitably, most fall to the wayside after a few months. We may even lose a few more resolutions along the way; however, a wardrobe change will be full of investments that may even last you for the years to come and can be the perfect way to make yourself feel great once again.

New glasses

Whether you’re a fan of shades or trendy specs, having a shakeup in the glasses department can feel particularly haute couture. It’s a good way of adding structure to your face, whether you invest in a new pair of sunnies for the warmer months or you update your prescription. You can find Kate Spade glasses and other beautiful designer ranges online without having to step foot in a physical store – perfect.

Throw out the old

Your friends, acquaintances, and family may begin to equate your style with some particular key items after a while. However, if your usual go-to pieces no longer bring you joy, then you should maybe think about Marie Kondo-ing them out of your life. Removing a particular style can be just as transformative as introducing a new one – particularly if it’s doing you no favors.

Well-fitted trousers

The best way to look luxe and trendy is to invest in items that really fit you. The place where this is most key is your trousers and jeans – particularly the latter. A well-fitting pair of jeans will see you through years of hardship and will look great with most items. Levi’s and other brands that specialize in cotton jeans are your best bets when it comes to finding a particular brand.

Add color

Some of the most stylish items in your closet are likely to monochrome: let’s face it, black and white seldom looks bad on anyone. However, that’s not to say that you should stay within those margins. Adding color, particularly in the accessories department is the ideal way to add vibrancy.

Swap it up

If your finances won’t stretch as far as a brand new outfit, then try and mix and match what you already have. You might be surprised by how many new looks you can create with pieces of clothing you already own.

Don’t be afraid to loosen up

Bodycon and tight-fitting garments can be very flattering on our best days, but after a heavy dinner, they can be anything but. Instead, try out some looser, ‘boxier’ clothes. These can be surprisingly flattering, and they will also cover all matter of sins.

Making yourself feel great again this year is all about adding color, tailoring and bagginess where it counts the most. Use particular stylistic choices to show off your best features, and be clever with other fashion statements to hide your worst. A baggy jumper will keep you warm in the winter and less self-conscious on a blue Monday. A well-fitted garment, on the other hand, will leave you feeling swish and tailored on your best days.
