5 Ways to Update Your Style for the New Year

The new year is fast approaching and we all know what that means: a new cycle of trends and looks fashion girls must be ready for. This is why there's no better time than now to review your closet, chuck everything that no longer belongs there, and make room for new items that will define your looks in 2020. Here are a few tips to keep you and your outfits au courant in the coming year.

Re-asses your whole wardrobe.

Set aside a whole day (or two, depending on your closet size) to carefully look at each of your clothes. If you haven't worn something within six months or if it no longer fits you or your style, there's no reason for it to still be in your wardrobe. In the words of Marie Kondo, everything in your closet must "spark joy" and make you feel good when you wear them.

Stock up on staples.

Trends come and go but there are pieces that never go out of style. Think jeans, summer dresses, swimwear, and white tees. Get the most out of these closet staples by making sure they fit you well and you feel comfortable wearing them.

Invest in pieces that pair well with what you already own.

Don't just buy clothes or accessories just because they look good on their own. You won't get your money's worth if the pieces you buy only fit a certain look or don't go well with the items in your closet. Invest in versatile pieces that you can mix and match with most of your outfits.

Retire old undergarments.

It's often easy to overlook undergarments because no one really sees them. But if you've been using the same set of bras and panties for more than six months, you better replace them, stat. A decent pair of undergarments shouldn't merely support you, it should help boost your confidence no matter what clothes you wear.
