It’s still early in the new year, so many of us are thinking about our resolutions. Maybe you want something such as losing weight, and are wondering how working out in the cold weather can help. Or, you’re someone who wants to improve their appearance and you’re looking into the latest facial products you can buy.
Make a Simple Resolutions
Why not make some a simple, yet effective resolutions for your clothing this year? Here are a few resolution ideas to make that can help you out quite a bit.
Clean Out Your Wardrobe
The problem with many of us is that we like to hoard clothes. They don’t take up too much space, especially if you have plenty of drawers and closets. Decluttering your home, even if it means your clothes, can make your life so much better. It’s easier than ever to find the clothes you actually want to wear.
You may have some sentimental attachment to some of your clothes. For instance, you may have a bit of sentimentality to that ratty t-shirt you’ve had since you were a teenager. Some things have to go. Not only can you clean the house, but it can be a fresh start.
If you’re planning on losing a few pounds, don’t throw away clothes just because they’re a little small; this can be a great way to be accountable. However, clothes you don’t wear anymore should be sold, donated, or tossed if they’re unwearable. Letting go is difficult, but you will feel much better.
Don’t Spend So Much
If you’re a fashion addict, you may be someone who spends a lot on the hottest clothing brands. If you’re wanting to save a little money this year, why not cut back on costs? There are many awesome ways to be fashionable without spending much money. Look to the thrift stores.
When you think of thrift shopping, you may imagine ratty, stained clothes, but for many shops, this isn’t the case. There’s a good chance your town has a store with like-new clothes and accessories that can provoke some creative fashion choices.
If you do want to go new, look for sales or deals. You can find quite a few ways to save in that regard.
Be Confident With What You Wear
Sometimes, you want to wear some clothes, but you don’t feel like it’ll be good for you. If you’re larger, there are some outfits that you may worry about wearing. Throw that mindset out of the window. Getting fit for the new year is fine, but you don’t need working out to be confident and able to rock a wardrobe. Learn how to be more confident and you can go far in life. Of course, we do realize that this is a challenge, which is why we recommend seeking help from a therapist or counselor if you have trouble being confident.
Try Local Artists
Another resolutions to make is to support your local artist. You probably know the importance of this, but it can’t be stressed. There are probably some great local clothing designers, and if you know how to rock their clothing, you may be the face of the local fashion scene.
Opt For Environmentally Friendly
Many people are looking to greener clothing, and we’re not talking about the colour. Clothing made from sustainable materials and ethical practices is in. Supporting clothing businesses that want to be more sustainable while giving you a great product is a good practice to do.
Sit on the Trending Fence
Capitalizing on trends is a risky move. Trends, especially in today’s day and age, happen quickly. Using a trend to experiment with or give you a springboard for your own style is a better approach. Usually, by the time you try to be fully trendy, you end up coming to it too late, wasting a lot of time and money in your investment.
Most important of all, have fun with your fashion. Fashion should be exciting and fun, and a unique way of experimenting with your identity. If you feel stressed or anxious because of fashion, maybe it’s time to step back for a bit and see why.
The Gist of it
Resolutions can take different shapes depending on what your ultimate goals are. Creating simple and SMART goals, such as purging clothes you no longer need or wear, makes them attainable.
