We all feel the urge to start fresh in January, whether by vowing to workout more (SoulCycle, here you come!), eat healthier, or stress less. While you’re on your New Year’s self-improvement kick, don’t forget about your wardrobe. There’s no need to completely overhaul your closet—instead, we’ve come up with nine easy upgrades for 2015.
Click through to see the tips and some of our favourite pieces to kick off the New Year!
We’ve all been there, done that when it comes to skinny and boyfriend jeans. Try a flattering high-waisted pair, updated mum jeans (yes, they can be stylish), or a pair of flares in 2015. Go out of your comfort zone and you might be surprised to find a new favourite style or brand!
A black blazer is a wardrobe workhorse. Splurge on a timeless style that fits you perfectly, and is versatile enough to wear year-round.
J.Crew Collection Satin-Trimmed Wool-Pique Tuxedo Blazer ($250) in Black
This tuxedo style features a tie-back detail to create a feminine silhouette.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Camel makes everything look more expensive.
While it may seem frivolous to spend money on t-shirts when you probably have a drawer full of them, there’s a good chance that many of them have seen better days. (Ahem, pit stains.)
Current/Elliott The Crew Neck Striped Cotton-Jersey T-shirt ($120) in Seaboard
You can never have too many striped shirts! This one is incredibly soft.
If you need to add a little polish to your look, a trench coat will easily help you achieve that. This is the year to finally get one if you’ve been holding off.
Bold is relative: If you typically shy away from prints, try a subtle one. If you only wear certain muted colours, try a fresh new hue!
With so many cool options available these days, it’s time to toss out your old, tired sneakers for a shiny new pair.
Trust us, getting dressed for work in the morning is so much more fun when you add even just a dash of colour to your look. It might even keep you energised throughout your day!
