Happy New Year everyone! fresh off the yuletide season break, I have slowly been getting back into the swing of things. During the break, I took some time out to plan ahead of the New Year and the plans included my 2018 style resolutions
First up on my list is to get out of my comfort zone. Prior to kicking off my blog, my style aesthetic was strictly classic…think blazers and structured dress. After two years of style experimentation, I have found that I quite enjoy trying out other style aesthetics. While I still occasionally reach and shop for classic pieces, for an element of surprise I would also be throwing in pieces totally out of my element for a varied look
Get on the wild side. The wildest I have gone style wise is donning head to toe sequins (see post ). I found that it wasn’t so bad after al. In addition to sequins making more appearances in my closet this year, it would be closely followed by maximalist prints, flouro-acidic colours and the likes for that shock factor….more is more eh.
Be a bag girl. I have always loved shoes from the moment I was aware of my love for fashion. Hence my closet is seriously lacking in bags. For 2018, I intend to add 1 or 2 classics to create a balance with my undying love for shoes.
Step it down in flats. Back to my love for shoes, I was taking stock of my shoe shelves and realised I had more pairs of heels in comparison to flats. While I find heels are my go to’s being 5’2, I am looking ditch the height inhibitions and opt for more comfort this year.
Casual luxe. While I am not into trends, this is one trend band wagon I am happy to jump on. The past couple of years has seen a wave of young designers changing the way people wear staple casual pieces. Blazers + track pants, Bomber jackets + pretty dresses… just a snippet of what I would be wearing in 2018.
