New Year Fashion/Beauty
I don’t know about you, but I love starting the New Year by taking stock of my personal style and beauty routine and then finding fun new fashions and beauty products that fit my budget. What better time to refresh your style than at the beginning of a new year?
The biggest fashion trend right now is the boot. Luckily, this is an easy trend to fit into almost any style. You may think boots are synonymous with “expensive luxury,” but that’s just not the case anymore, ladies! You can find cute, stylish boots at every price point these days. Online shops like ShoeDazzle and Zappos and brick-and-mortar retailers like Old Navy, Forever 21 and H&M are great sources of affordable style.
A great tee never goes out of style, and it’s a wardrobe staple that I add to my closet on a regular basis. Boatnecks, sailor stripes, dots and color blocking are all fresh fashion trends in tees right now, and the best online source for unique and stylish tees is the Olsen twins’ subscription site StyleMint. Check it out, and you may never buy another tee anywhere else again!
But don’t forget about the jewelry! The right accessories can take a last-year outfit straight into the New Year with style, and the exciting pieces at Stella and Dot are my all-time faves. Stella and Dot has a wide range of prices, so any fashionable girl can choose some new jewels for the New Year, to gift to someone else or just to enjoy herself! If you’re more the DIY, crafty type, keep an eye on Pinterest for fresh ideas for making your own bead or metal jewelry or bejeweled hair accessories. Everyone will be asking where you got such great finds!
When it comes to beauty, you can’t go wrong with cosmetics shopping sites like Birchbox. But don’t overlook classic retailers like Avon; they now offer online shopping with fresh, modern skin care and makeup products. I’m in love with liquid eyeliner, lip stains and super-lengthening mascaras at the moment, and plan on giving luscious-smelling hand creams from L’Occitane to all my girlfriends on their birthdays this year.
It’s easy to look gorgeous and stylish in the New Year, whether you’re into online shopping, exploring the mall or making things yourself. Have fun with your fashion and beauty choices this year!
