With 2016 almost in the books, you may have already started thinking about your resolutions for next year. Eating healthy and exercising are common goals, but if you’re into fashion or you simply want to refresh your wardrobe, improving your style is a great addition to the list! Whether you’re a man or woman, check out these four style resolutions to adopt in 2017.
1. Incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year Into Your Wardobe
Every year, Pantone comes up with a new color of the year that fashion experts use to influence their designs. You can also use it to improve your style in 2017! Next year’s color is Greenery, a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring.
To start 2017, you can incorporate Greenery into your wardrobe with a bold green coat. For nights out or formal occasions, a green dress or collared shirt demonstrates your trendiness. The great thing about Greenery is that as the weather warms up, you can continue rocking this refreshing color well into the spring and summer months with green shorts, shoes and accessories.
2. Mix Patterns and Prints
Look your best in 2017 with outfits featuring unique patterns and prints! The hot trends for the year include stripes, floral patterns, polka dots, geometric lines and animal prints. Of course, the execution of these bold fashion trends is what pulls everything together. You can be confident that Saks Off 5th at Easton has their finger on the pulse of the season’s latest designer trends.
3. Build Up Your Professional Wardrobe
Have you found yourself wearing the same few work outfits in a rotation? Build up your professional wardrobe in 2017! For men, that can simply include buying fresh new button-ups, suits, overcoats or cardigans, but can also extend to accessories like shoes and ties. Women have it a bit trickier, as there are a few more pieces to the outfit that must be considered. Setting up an appointment with a personal stylist at Easton will help you get the perfect professional look—and perhaps help you reach another New Year’s goal, like earning a promotion.
4. Purge Your Closet
If your closet is overflowing with outfits of years past, consider dumping them in 2017 and updating it with the trendy styles of today. Sort through your wardrobe and separate what you wear with what you don’t, and get rid of the clothes you’ve outgrown. Then, head to Nordstrom at Easton and make some trendy updates. Once your old outfits are gone, you can either hand them down or donate them to charity.
