What fashion resolutions have you made for the new year? Are you going to explore a new color palette? Maybe you will look for ways to dress for less, saving money by shopping sales and creating your own designs. Perhaps you plan to incorporate more textures and accessories into your wardrobe to add some excitement and variety. Whatever your fashion goals are, you have many avenues to explore in achieving them.
One of the best sources of inspiration is online retail. Whether you check out the basics featured at StyleMint or the latest in shoes at ShoeDazzle, you can get a feel for what’s trending and what’s on its way out. Do you need some ideas for jewelry designs? Don’t miss the wonderful choices of online retailers like Stella &Dot or Birchbox. The clearance pages are perfect for tracking down low prices on those components that you may have bypassed previously because of price. They are great for stocking up on a favorite that you can’t get enough of. Of course, discount codes are always fantastic incentives for online fashion shopping, perfect for stretching your budget even more.
The look and feel of an outfit or accessory can’t truly be appreciated without an in-person evaluation. Check out brick-and-mortar retailers like H&M, Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 to see the latest designs in everything from jeans and blouses to scarves and earrings. You can explore textures and colors in person, evaluating how they work with your shape and complexion.
It’s always fun to try on great new styles, and this provides the basis for building your spring wardrobe. You’ll get ideas for using your existing separates and accessories, and you can track down those simple essentials that will allow you to expand your clothing selection affordably and effectively.
Pinterest has created a DIY interest in fashion and accessory creation. Whether you are thinking about taking up sewing, crochet or knitting, you can fashion your own rich combinations of textures and colors in skirts, scarves and hats.
DIY jewelry projects are abundant, and you can track down all of the instructions needed for everything from earrings to beaded bracelets. You’ll find others’ depiction of their color and clothing explorations, allowing you to expand your own set of ideas as you create personal fashion items. You’ll also discover lots of wonderful options for creating accessories to give as gifts.
