New Year, New Style

If you’re like me, you take each new year as an opportunity to reset and start over again at baseline.  Part of that usually involves evaluating my style and figuring out if there is anything I want to change.  This is what I came up with:

In general, my style is business casual with some flair. I take risks.  I experiment with prints, pattern-mixing, and cover a variety of fashion genre’s.  See below for examples:

This year, I think I am going to aim for looks that are a bit more classic…though with hints of flair from time to time.  I don’t really have a formula for outfits.  Most days, it’s whatever I pull out of my closet in the 30 minutes it takes me to get ready every morning.  Most of the time, however, I will have perused Pinterest and Instagram the night before for inspiration.  Here is one of the looks I found on Pinterest that inspired one of my outfits for work in 2016.  Check out the Pinterest look and then the look I came up with below:

Pinterest and Instagram can help you come up with some ideas for outfits using existing items in  closet, or help you focus your shopping for pieces that might be missing from your wardrobe.  Be sure to follow along on Instagram if you aren’t already!  I also have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to career looks and career articles should you want to follow along for inspiration.

I hope everyone has gotten off to a great start this year!  I’m personally excited for what this year brings.  Hopefully that includes a lot of fun new clothes, shoes, and accessories! Haha!

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!
