It’s been my first full week back at the Yours HQ after having a little festive break and I have to admit I have loved getting back into a work routine. Naturally with a New Year come new resolutions; mine always tend to be the same: 1) drink more water 2) eat less rubbish. Personally I think there should be less focus on what not to do, and more focus on trying out new things! As the Yours stylist I also think that the new year should be used as a great opportunity to try out new styles and trends, and refresh your wardrobe! With this in mind, I have put together a list of “Style Resolutions” with the hope that you may give one a go!
1) Be positive!
First of all, be positive and stop worrying! We all do it: “Does my bum look big in this?” or “Is my tummy sticking out too much?” We all need to stop worrying so much and embrace what we have. Don’t assume that you can’t pull off a bodycon dress or that you will never find a pair of skinny jeans to fit you. Here at Yours we have such a wide range of classic styles that are specifically designed to fit your curves, so fear not! Keep checking our Coming Soon page for daily updates of products arriving this season.
2) Try a print
Be bold and try a print; it’s a great way to make a statement and stand out! If you pick the right colour combination for your wardrobe you can mix and match with basic items that you probably already have.
This beautiful tile print tunic (product code 51431) is a favourite of mine and a great place to start if you have never tried a print before. The warm burgundy colour is great for this season and mixed in with black makes it easier to match up with other colours. It’s made from an easy to wear stretch jersey and the pretty crochet trim around the hem gives it a bit of an edge.
If you are feeling a bit braver, why not have a peek at these amazing floral slim leg trousers (product code 51310) on our Coming Soon page. Click the “let me know” button and you will be the first to be told when they arrive in stock. They are such a great piece for spring; you can dress them down with a fine slouch knit jumper and then dress them up with a chiffon blouse. I would even recommend wearing them to work with a classic shirt and heels – I guarantee everyone in the office will be asking you where you got them from!
3) Invest in some decent underwear!
It’s so easy to forget about investing in new underwear; the stuff you already have in your draw is worn and familiar, plus it can be such a chore hunting down that next great bra or some comfy knickers. However, it’s so important to refresh all parts of your wardrobe, and having decent underwear can change the way that you feel about your body and also help give you a better fit in your clothes. Make sure you visit our lingerie page to see all of the great value plus size lingerie that we have on offer. No longer will it be a daunting task trying to find the right bra, no longer will you have to compromise style and comfort!
4) Dress for YOU!
Finally, my most important style resolution, dress for YOU! Ultimately, what you wear is all about what you like and how it makes you feel. You can read what the magazines say, what the bloggers say, and even what I say, but really it’s your choice. Let’s all not waste too much time on how others see us, and just wear what we want no matter our style or size.
I’m feeling really positive about the year ahead and I hope you are too!
