Ah, January! It’s a great time to take stock and give your wardrobe a long overdue clear out. Do you really need five plain white shirts, for instance? And how many pairs of smart shoes should one person own?
If you’ve been considering taking everything out of your closet and starting again, think about doing it in these first – let’s face it, pretty dreary – months of the New Year.
You can trim down your clobber and still look great – and here’s why: perfect style isn’t always about the clothes you wear, but what you complement them with. That statement piece of jewelery, bold printed hat, or yes, even that watch you received for Christmas, could help you update your look in an instant. Why?
Watches, in particular, offer the ideal way to make a striking statement. They’re a practical accessory and they don’t scream ‘look at me!’ in the same way a vibrant coat or head scarf might.
If you’re someone who opts for simple yet stylish clothes for work or home, you’ll know that your watch plays a big part in updating your look by ensuring you always look well put together.
They’re easy to slip on and, providing you choose the right one, it’ll complement just about any outfit too.
A tailored suit, for example, will always look great with a simple silver watch. While a quirky weekend outfit, on the other hand, could help you stand out even more if you pair it with the right timepiece.
Luxury watches don’t have to cost a fortune, either, with plenty of great styles available online at not-to-be-missed prices. Want to update your look but want to save some money in the process? Think about investing in a key piece like a nice watch and swap and share other items with friends to ensure your wardrobe gets an overhaul without breaking the bank.
If you’re feeling uninspired by your clothes, organise a ‘swap and share’ party with friends. You simply host the evening and friends and family can bring up to five unwanted items, accessories work best as they can be worn by everyone, regardless of their dress size – to swap with the group. It’s a lovely way to update your clothing collection without having to spend any money – plus it’s a nice idea for a girls’ night in with a difference and anything that isn’t claimed by your friends can be donated to a good cause.
Already own a statement watch? Head to the clothes swap party to look for accessories that will pair perfectly with your new timepiece. Add coloured scarves, pumps and maybe a new bag to your look and you’ll find that your outfit is updated in no time at all.
Trends may come and go, but one thing’s for certain – and that’s this: watches never go out of fashion. So why not try a new look in 2017 and save pounds by doing so? Luxury watches with budget price tags may be just the thing you’re looking for to give you a New Year pick-me-up.
