Fashion Resolutions - A New Year Brings A New Outlook On Style

For many of us, a new year heralds a new beginning...a fresh start...a clean slate, with a new style mindset!

It's the perfect opportunity to hone in and rethink our personal style goals.  We asked members of our Shepherd's style team and viewers on our last Fashion Friday style segment of 2022, to share how they wish to update their wardrobe for 2023...

Here are a few of the many inspiring ideas we received upon asking, what is your fashion resolution for 2023?

Two Sides Of A Coin

When selecting clothing and accessories, it's most likely the ones that fit our silhouette, and express our personal style that we're most likely to wear again and again.
Whether your style is classic, dramatic, sporty, artsy, sexy or romantic, embracing that look or persona will make you feel like the best version of you. That is the very essence of personal style.

"I want to do away with feeling frumpy" Anna 
"I want to step out of my comfort zone" Catherine
"I can look through a sea of clothing in my closet, some days, creating a look that feels put together doesn't come easily... I want to look timeless, ageless and on trend... the timeless element means that I should go to good quality. That is high on my agenda"  Elaine, Shepherd's Stylist


 Style Personality - Rely and Sharpen YOUR Instincts 

"I want to look more coordinated in 2023.  Keep it simple but with drama. I'm relying on my instincts to determine what feels good and looks good on me"  Primal, Shepherd's Stylist


Keeping On Track Starts With What's On Your Wardrobe Rack! 

The more you have in your wardrobe that you just don't wear, the longer and the more indecisive you become in choosing a winning look to take on your day. For some, more is better...however, if it's not actively being worn...what purpose is it really serving?  Time to declutter and start styling from pieces that you truly rely on.

« I separate my closet by season.  I take the pieces at the back of my seasonal closet and put them at the very front.  If I don't wear them, I give them, in the hopes they will be repurposed and enjoyed! » Rachelle, Shepherd's Stylist


Rachelle learned a long time ago not to get swept up in trends, or, by what may look good on a friend.  Spending the time to explore what necklines, designs and proportions are best for you, will simplify your quest in putting together a winning look.
