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?

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.

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.
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

for to give you a New Year pick-me-up.
