Stylish New Year’s Resolutions

January 2nd, 2014

Happy New Year and happy resolution making! The old faithful list of New Year’s resolutions still gets plenty of attention – eat healthier, start exercising, get organized, save more money – you know the drill. But we challenge you to tackle a fun, style-based goal in 2014. While it may seem frivolous, vowing to ramp up your wardrobe does more than just force you to find closet space. It provides you with a new found confidence in the workplace, helps you to shop smarter and encourages you to expand horizons in other areas of your life. Here are three of our favorite style resolutions to help make 2014 your most fashion-forward year yet!

Be Bold. The classic, functional pieces – like a black leather jacket, grey wool coat, beige down parka, or brown tote bag – will always have a place in your wardrobe. They’re reliable and comfortable, and that’s OK. But this year, dare to be different in something a little more glamorous and eye-popping. This Zuki designed colorblock dyed sheared beaver walking coat is a great place to start. The colors are neutral and the silhouette is pretty classic, but the jewel detail and geometric pattern make it truly one of a kind.  Or, wrap-up in this not so subtle Michael Kors designed “camo” mink wrap.  Shown here, it’s accessorized with a leather belt and opera gloves, along with a ranch mink clutch.  Pair with classic black satin slacks or a slim skirt, for a sensational look.  From the Bisang Collection, opt for this gorgeous teal velvet sheared mink and chinchilla walking coat.  The award winning Andre and Lisa Bisang utilize glamorous furs, eye popping color, and form fitting style to create stand-out fur garments.  Resolve to get noticed!

Wear More Color. This resolution is popular but often falls by the wayside as you continually wear your go to black outfits; however, these fur coats will make you want to commit! Another Zuki piece, this onyx dyed sheared beaver walking coat boasts Intarsia florals and jewel details. The subtle pop of spring color will brighten even the coldest winter day. To go all out for hue, try this stunning lilac dyed sheared beaver flounce coat with matching fox trim.  And, for color and styling, we suggest this stunning saffron colored sheared beaver peplum flounce jacket.  The cut and color are perfection.

Up the Ante with Great Accessories. How many years have you been toting around that worn brown leather bag? It might hold everything, but it definitely won’t land you a spot on the best dressed list anytime soon. This Badgley Mischka leather tote with studded detail and gold chain handles will change that. This lightweight handbag provides a spacious interior for all your essentials and pairs well with day or evening looks. We couldn’t talk about handbags without mentioning the York Signature Style Fox Purse with a simple design and a leather drawstring that provides a secure closure.  Other great style changers include:  hats with attitude – fedoras, newsboys, or trooper styles, a mink zip-up vest,  fur, velvet or chenille scarves, leather or chenille gloves, leather belts or shearling boots. For glam or on the go, change your look with the mere addition of a new accessory – it’s an easy way to fulfill your style resolution!
