Happy New Year!

As you say goodbye to 2012 and plan for all your fabulous 2013 adventures, it’s time to reflect on you. Although most people hate making resolutions – lose weight, sleep more, eat right – it is the perfect opportunity to start fresh. But rather than setting unattainable goals, start small and build from there. Sometimes the smallest adjustments can lead to huge rewards.

The easiest way to relaunch yourself is through some new items for your wardrobe, but only if you opt for things you don’t already have. Try to get outside your clothing comfort zone. It’s guaranteed to lead you to bigger and better opportunities. Here are some ideas for the new you in 2013.

 Wear patterns!

Trend Watch Winter 2012 – Foxy Boxy

A “boxy” silhouette may not sound very appealing but when done correctly can be bold and fashion forward. What’s interesting is that despite it being somewhat shapeless, the look creates a strong structural aesthetic.

Dsquared2 FW2012

Canadian designers specifically took this trend all the way down the runways. What makes up this look? The waist is undefined and widened and the shoulders are often rounded or raised and exaggerated. This style is refreshingly chic and not overly sexuallized as some designs tend to be. The larger shoulders give women a grander presence and who doesn’t want that? 

For balance, opt for a skinny trouser or fitted skirt as to not hide your figure.
