KOKO Couture’s 2018 Style Resolutions
Okay so the festive period is over (boo!) and this time of year has most of us are feeling a little bit glum. This is made 100 times worse by New Year’s Resolutions! January is dull enough without cutting out the treats or forcing yourself to the gym. Thank you very much! But, resolutions don’t have to be boring. Making some changes to your style is a great way to make a positive change in your life that’s actually fun. Try one (or more) of these style resolutions to help you feel like a fabulous new woman in 2018.
1. Step out your comfort zone
You know the saying ‘life begins at the end of your comfort zone?’ It may be a cliché, but it’s true. And it also applies to your style. We must say, some of the best outfits we have ever worn are the ones that had us feeling a bit nervous. Try something new this year and you may end up looking and feeling your best ever. Have you been eyeing up a new style of jeans? Try them, buy them and work it! If you need some extra help with styling, check out fashion bloggers on Instagram and YouTube.

2. Have fun with fashion
You can never have too much fun in your life! Fashion should be a joy. So pick the items that make you smile and brighten up your mood on a cold January morning. Go for bright colours, interesting fabrics, and lots of sparkle! You don’t necessarily have to go crazy with all of these in one outfit. Pick a statement bag, wear a bold top, put on some leopard print boots. You have so many options when it comes to Winter fashion!
3. Pick your go-to outfits
It’s super important to have a few outfits that you feel amazing in. While we encourage experimenting with fashion. Keep some backup outfits at hand for those in-a-rush days. These outfits should fit well, be easy to wear and make you feel amazing. Have a range of these for different occasions e.g. work/casual/night out. A girl can never be too prepared.
4. Dress like the person you want to be
Think of the girl who you aspire to be. How would she dress? Clothes say a lot about our personality, so if you want to be seen as a certain type of girl, you got to dress like her. Faking it till you make it is the key, trust us.
5. Start planning your outfits in advance
We all have an idea in our head that we are going to try and look our best every day. But when it comes to it, sometimes we would rather just keep hitting the snooze button. Chuck on a pair of joggers rather than get up and sift through our wardrobe to pick a fab outfit. Planning a week’s worth of outfits in advance can help us look great every day. Without losing valuable sleep time! It can also help us avoid that dreaded scenario where you find out the clothes you want to wear are in the wash.
6. Invest in accessories
Accessories can make or break an outfit. How many times have you put together the perfect outfit and had it ruined by your shoes or bags? For a look that’s polished and fashion-forward, it’s the small details that count. Check out our range of clutch bags and find the perfect bag, whatever your outfit.
7. Only wear what you feel good in
This is a simple one, and yet how many time have we stepped out in an outfit that feels a bit meh? Have a clear out of your closet and get rid of everything that doesn’t do it for you anymore (or never did). If it doesn’t make you feel good, it has to go! A great way to purge is to ask yourself, have I worn this within the last 6 months? If not, get rid of it! We promise you’ll be able to plan outfits much easier in future. And the clothes that you do get rid of doesn’t have to go to waste. Either donate it to charity or resell it on Ebay or Depop (and put that money towards some fresh outfits).
