New Year, New Style

 b2ap3_thumbnail_Blog-Photo.jpg

Looking to try new styles for the new year?  Mid-winter style can feel dull, yet there are a few new style switches for the new year will give you confidence all year long and will surely last longer than some of those resolutions ( I'm sorry but kale just doesn't satisfy a girl like a piece of chocolate does!) 

 

1. Go Long Over Lean

Try a new silhouette for style switch! An ultra long, draped sweater or an angled tunic looks fantastic over slim pants, plus you can even wear it in the colder months!

 

2. Wine Tasting 

Are you a wine lover? Savor the flavors of the season in these rich hues!  Even if you normally shy away from a bold color, you can take a sip of this trend and slip into a light, blush hue which is always a classic color for Spring!

Plum

Merlot

3. Western Inspired Accessories 

 

Some of the most popular designers showcased the inspiration that they found in the west!  Leather fringed boots and bags are all the rage as are injections of turquoise jewelry throughout your wardrobe!  Even though these Western styles are more "with-it" than wild, you can still let out a little "Yee-haw", though I would advise that you do it in the confines of your own closet - loved ones may start to wonder!

4. Fashion Runners

 


Fashionable athletic gear is still on the rise, and so are its shoes!  If you love some height, yet are resolved not to wear uncomfortable shoes this year ( my hand is raised!), then you may have just found your perfect shoe match - platform sneakers!  Luxe textiles and elevated shapes have taken over the shoe world.  Give your sneaks a revamp and jump on this trend!

5. Top Handle Tote 

 


Structured yet fun shapes are what these bags are all about.  Take hold of your style ( and your handbag) and try one of these new totes! Dog approved!
