2012 Fashion Resolutions

January 1, 2012

New year. New life?

Many people jump into this paradigm pool once a year. They swim hard through laps of resolutions only to cramp up and limp out of the pool. Usually, we go all out for fitness, losing weight, or dieting. If you don’t believe me, drive past the parking lot of your local YMCA during the month of January. Also, many people plan to focus on finances, saving money, and eliminating debt.

You may desire to revamp your wardrobe, your style, or just your fashion knowledge. I offer a suggestion. Don’t jump into grandiose fashion resolutions full force. Your style candle will burn out. Pace yourself. Pick a few small achievable goals. Now, I am not saying to not have big dreams or ambitions, just making sure you have some smaller measurable goals to help you get there. For your fashion endeavors, I recommend setting some goals for yourself. If you have no resolutions yet, allow me to offer some attainable ones:

Repeat after me:

1. In 2012, I will not wear white tube socks with everything. This means with colored pants, shorts, and especially sandals. Simple solution: Match your socks to the color of your pants.

2. In 2012, I will not wear my jeans 800 times before washing them. Can you say “saggy and wrinkled?” Simple solution: Wash your jeans regularly. When those wrinkles leave a permanent fade, get a new pair.

3. In 2012, I will not wear a white crew neck undershirt beneath every shirt. Avoid the white triangle underneath your chin. Wear crew neck undershirts with crew neck shirts, but not polos, dress shirts or v-neck sweaters. Simple solution: Buy v-neck undershirts. You will notice the difference.

4. In 2012, I will not wait months before getting a haircut. You may think you can still marvelously fix your hair. And, maybe you can, but what about your neck. Gets pretty hairy, right? Think about it. Simple solution: Get a haircut once a month at a minimum.

I have confidence you can achieve at least one of these. You might want to tape a sign to your closet door with a picture of white socks crossed out. You might also give people close to you permission to immediately alert you of the moment your hair goes south. Whatever you decide, do something!

Happy New Year!

    Numbers 1 and 3. I haven’t worn white tube socks since Junior High. They make my skin crawl. I can’t stand to see a man in church sitting as piously as can be with his stark, white tube socks showing. It makes me want to jump across the pew and scold him. Number 3 is one of the worst offenses in NYC in the financial district. All you see is light blue button-down shirts and khakis with the dreaded white triangle!

    Good advice in here. Thanks for sharing with us.
