New Style in the New Year

2011 has just begun and what better time to switch up your style, even a little bit? Stores are still offering their post-Christmas clearance prices and new spring stuff is just arriving. If you've always wanted to try something new with your wardrobe, why not start right now?
  • GIRLY: Never been the type to like delicate pieces? Why not try to incorporate a few into your closet. Spring is one of the best seasons for all things feminine--floral shirts, flouncy skirts and the cutest accessories abound. American Eagle has some great new things you can add in with your winter stuff now, or wait a few months to wear. Try the AE Layered Floral Cami ($34.50) or the AE Skinny Leather Belt ($19.50).
  • EDGY: Ready for a little more 'rough & tumble'? You don't need a tough girl attitude to pull this style off (though it doesn't hurt!) Try the new AE Slouchy Jean ($39.95, in navy cloud) and the AE Jeweled T-Strap Sandal ($29.50)--they'll look extra-edgy together!
  • SPORTY: Shying away from the 'jockette' look? Don't be--it can be totally fierce if you do it right. Start off with a bright jacket, like Hollister's Fountain Valley ($79.50, in red), put on a contrasting swimsuit underneath (Warner Springs, $39, in coral) and you'll be ready for some beach volleyball!
  • CLASSIC: Don't mistake this for boring--it's actually preppy and professional. A&F has some great ways to try this the Marisa button-down ($58)--it's the basic striped blouse with a colorful twist--or the Addison pants ($40.60)--twill pants go with everything and the cuffs are unexpected.
New Style in the New Year
Make a fashion resolution in the new year...resolve to try something new and a little out of your comfort zone--you'll never know unless you try!
