As the year comes to a close, and our minds start to fill with the possibilities of all our new clothes the new year is yet to bring, we think it’s only fair we set ourselves some resolutions. Full of good intentions, at ANNA we’ve been listing all the ways that we can reinvent our dressing routines and styling mind-sets. We promise that every single item to grace the threshold of our homes will be a winner. At least for January, anyway… Here are the steps we will be taking to cleanse our closets for 2019.
DON’T BE AFRAID OF PRINT
This year, we’re going to strive for a wardrobe which oozes both print and an abundance of colour! Sure, you don’t want it to turn into a complete schizophrenic tardis that needs taming, but a little print here and there goes a long, long way! Don’t be afraid to mix, match, clash and beyond. Print is definitely here to stay for 2019.
INVEST IN THE EVERYDAY
Be more thoughtful with purchases and don’t fall into a trap of chasing trends - create your own identity and style. Invest in your everyday. The black skinny jean that won’t lose its shape after three washes, the crisp white shirt which won’t eventually turn grey, the thick woolly jumper which won’t bobble, you get the picture…
WEAR MORE COLOUR
Be bold. This season's “It” colours have presented themselves on the runway earlier this year, and they are certain to brighten up your day! By all means, keep the basic colours that form the base of your current wardrobe: the blues, blacks, greys, whites and camel - but don't be afraid of a bold hue anymore. Embrace the rainbow!
BUY MORE OF THE THINGS YOU LOVE
For 2019, try to buy more of what you know you love and wear on repeat, and don’t let it make you feel like that's a boring option. If you know you love something, and it looks and feels great, you know you’ll wear it time and time again. You already have three leopard print dresses? What’s one more for luck…
