The Re:Mark: Wardrobe Woes
The party's totally over. The Christmas party, we mean. It’s January. The Monday of the months. It’s gray, it’s cold and you’re broke! Trying to deal with the whole "New Year, New You" thing on Insta? Is even deciding what to wear every morning a struggle? We gotcha. Check out these easy ways to cope with getting dressed in the most-hated month of the year.
The Christmas sparkle's all worn off – and now you feel like you have nothing to wear, right? Those sequins and high-shine metallics just don’t cut it for officewear or brunch. Plus, your fave 2017 jeans just aren't doin' it for you anymore (and for some weird reason don’t fit quite as well... Ahem!).
Well, you’re in luck! 'Cause January means the start of the menswear fashion weeks. London Fashion Week Men's has just wrapped up after a whirlwind three days, and the fash pack are now in Milan. We all know menswear fashion trends move at a slower pace than women’s – making them easier to process, actually.
Hot brights, bold checks and tactile textures are all showing up as key trends from the men’s catwalks. So why not try a new color or bold fabric to boost your mood? Outerwear's the best way to amp up your winter wardrobe: after all, we’re probs gonna be wrapped up til March – so let your coat do the talkin'. Our Eclectic Texture trend checks off all of the Jan boxes: cozy faux furs, lush textures, and super-comfy knitwear. Perfect.
Indulging yourself not an option til payday? Then start with a closet detox: How many pieces at the back of that thing have you totally forgotten about? What can you upcycle? And what can you eBay to ease the January spending slump?
For all you that think that clearing out your closet's way too much effort this early in the year, just start off small. Someone once told me that if your face makes a good impression, most people don’t even notice what you’re wearing. As someone who kinds rotates the same looks week after week, thinking like that has serious appeal for me...!
With that in mind, I’m pairing winter’s hottest hat trend with my fave makeup statement each morning: a beret and a bold lip. Red, plum or pink are my go-tos for both. But when in doubt, always go for the black beret and red lip – it’s a winning combo to boost both your mood and your look!
