Folks! Can you believe that there’s only eight posts left from The Fashion Folks (aka moí) this year? I’ll be off Monday and Tuesday next week (so shall you be) and then there’s only three articles left except the five of this week. Crazy, I know! Anyways, this is the time to slowly start looking at next year and mentally prepare yourself. I do believe that change is constant however, and a new minute is a new chance to turn something around. With that said though, I also believe in the metaphorical importance of something new as in a new day, month or even year. We humans inevitable summarize our lives by year and 2018 is an unwritten one! To make the most out of the year and prepare ourselves to excel and shine at are very best, by what we love, I thought I’d share some ideas (aka resolutions) about fashion and beauty. First up are some ideas for fashion resolutions 2018! Do remember though that resolutions are guidelines, not rules.
Find A New Wardrobe Staple
If best friends would exist in a fashion version, the wardrobe staples would be it! The staples are the basics of your wardrobe that can be matched with anything (oh well) and are great go-to options. Depending on your style, these items are different from each and every wardrobe. If you’re working a more preppy style, a black blazer is probably a popular piece in your wardrobe. If you love fashion with an edge, the perfect pair of jeans are surely in your closet. As we get older and get more experience in life, I do like to think that we expand our minds in the fashion context too. This is only natural with the flow of trends, but is a great example of how you can find new favorites in your wardrobe that you always can rely on. One of the fashion resolutions 2018 should definitely be to find that new wardrobe staple! Find some inspiration by looking at the current trends, your style icons or ask a friend what staples they always count on.
Read A Fashion Book
This resolution is only logical if you enjoy fashion as a subject and definitely a must if you do. Fashion is, reasonably enough, a visual subject where images, illustrations and videos by all means get the majority of attention. BUT, fashion through text is another way to receive information and perspective. Perhaps read a book about your favorite brand, or a styling book if you want to know the theory behind a good style. Choose a subject you like within fashion (it can be anything) and read! We all need more time away from the screens!
Try A New Trend
Continuing the idea of expanding the fashion horizon, trying a new trend is a given resolution! You don’t have to try them all, but if you notice a trend you like – why not give it a try? Perhaps that trend will turn into a fashion staple in your wardrobe? I’d advise you to go for a trend that’s close to your own style, yet different enough to add something new to your look. A great way to find a trend that balances this perfectly is to either choose a trend in your favorite color, or pick up the trend if its one of your favorite pieces. For instance, if you love dresses, go for the midi dresses and see if you like them. One step in the comfort zone and one step outside is progress!
Give Away Clothes
We all (yes all of us) have clothes we never use yet they take up an unreasonable amount of space in our wardrobes. These are clothes that can be given to friends/family, donated to charity, recycled in stores or used for a swap party. A swap party is when you change clothes with your friends, e.g. your black shirt your friend wants is swapped for her jeans you love etc. If you’re uncertain what clothes you really can’t be without, do a pile of clothes that you have to wear within the next months and if you’re unable to – give them away.
Shop Less, Style More
Relating to the resolutions (aka guidelines) above, what should you do with all the clothes you have and want to keep? Well style them, love them and work them! We are overusing our resources to an extent that is absurd and we all can contribute in our daily lives. As fashion people, I know many of us could shop less and style more. There’s no such a thing that last season’s jeans aren’t working this year and so on. Learn how to style more cleverly to get your outfits to feel more fresh, exciting and fashionable. I’ll talk more about this next year, on how to do it, but you can always read more in the Styling category. To give some quick-tips now though; it’s about adding the details, finding new combinations, getting the inspiration flow and….style in advance!
Folks! Is there anyone of these fashion resolutions 2018 you’re going to do? Or what are you guidelines for 2018? Let’s chat in the comments!

Such a great point on shop less and style more. That is something that i’ll be adding to my fashion resolution as well!
Yay! Styling more is the best kind of fashion fun! Xx
I can’t believe it, that’s for sure! Insanity. Anywho, as usual, love how you’re inspiring me. I just might read a fashion book – something about holding an actual book, am I right? Giving away clothes is also #1 right now! Enjoy your last working week of 2017 😉
Hahah right, holding the book is definitely step one! Same to you babe, Xx
Oh it’s crazyyy how time flies! I love your resolutions and I will definitely try to stick to some of them too – let’s see which piece will be my fashion staple next year 🙂 Have a great Christmas time!

These are wonderful fashion resolutions! I am constantly trying to refine my closet and give away clothes. I love the tip about reading a fashion book. I need to find a new one to read! Thanks for sharing!
That’s great and a fashion book is always a good idea! Xx
These are all great! I definitely need to get into reading some more books and I am always up for trying a new trend!
That’s lovely! I look forward to read more fashion books this year too! Xx
Interesting! I’ve already set the last two goals for myself, but I hadn’t even thought about the others. Reading a book sounds like a great idea. I think with that, everything else will come naturally. Maybe? Have a great new week Mia!
That’s lovely amber! Hahah well, let’s hope so! Xx
Love this! I’m all about donating clothes! I just donated a whole bunch to the Salvation Army!
Happy Monday, babe!
That’s so good, well done babe!! Xx
Such great ideas! I’m currently thinking about all this in preparation for the new year! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! Have a great week Mia.
Yay Gemma, that’s lovely! I know, crazy right?! Same to you love! Xx
It’s been a bit since I’ve visited, so I must say that I love what you’ve done with the site! It looks so clean and polished, you did a wonderful job! As for these suggestions, I think they’re all practical enough for everyone to feel inspired to try. I know I’ve personally thought about purchasing less and remixing my pieces more moving forward. I’ve added some much needed pieces into my wardrobe these past couple of weeks because of all the great sales that had been going on, but now I think I need to chill out and get creative again, lol. Thanks for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you have the best week ahead!

These are great resolutions! I like the idea of finding a new staple. It seems like it would help with buying less.
Straight A Style
Right? I think so too! A staple binds clothes together in a great way! Xx
Love all of these ideas, especially the shop less style more. It’s so true! We don’t always need new things – just a new way to style what we have 🙂
That’s so true Shauna! Sometimes all we need is to get more creative, Xx
Oh yes, don’t tell me, I definitely got to shop less darling lol. My wardrobe is full of stuff, I shall better get a bit organised and try to mix and match. Enjoy your week ahead babe
