8 Style Resolutions We’re Trying in 2019


A new year brings a possibility to chuck out all we hated about a prior year and start with a creatively found energy. Often times this is associated to your diet, infrequently your self-care regimen, roughly always money—but it’s also a good time to cruise personal style. we asked my associate ELLE staffers to share how they’re tweaking theirs for 2019.

Focus on building an accessories collection

“I have some-more than adequate garments (and a Rent a Runway total subscription) to come adult with an gigantic series of outfits. But I’ve recently schooled usually how most a right accessories can make a look, so newly all I’ve been selling for are necklaces, earrings, bags, belts, and shoes. Even hats! we used to go for a valuables territory of discerning conform stores for a discerning repair (that would fundamentally remove a peculiarity in small months) though now, I’m looking for valuables and accessories that will final me years even as my personal ambience changes. — Kristina Rodulfo, Senior Beauty Editor

Make certain my looks compare my 2019 energy

“When asked what arrange of appetite I’d be giving for 2019, I’ve mostly responded with a difference abounding and spicy. Sure, everybody wants to make some-more income though we also wish to be abounding with suggestive relations and practice I’ll remember for life. And my looks contingency match! Pieces that are good made, well-cared for, ironed, dry-cleaned, and prepared to be seen. All factors that minister to abounding style. As for spicy, well, that’s all about 2019 being a year of no BS. Oftentimes we save my special pieces out of fear of people looking and commenting on my outfits (I generally cite to mix in) though this year I’m going all out. More color, engaging textures and bullion jewelry. Lots of bullion jewelry!” — Nikki Ogunnaike, Style Director

Start experimenting with a garments we already own

“I’m super lazy. Like, wear a same jeans twice in a quarrel to a corporate office, lazy. we tumble behind on a same outfits each week (bless my coworkers for never indicating it out), and it’s finally time we stop. I’m a conform editor too, so there’s no forgive for a miss of sartorial creativity. we usually use about 30 percent of my closet, so 2019 is a year we start experimenting with a garments we already own. That means we finally get to wear gems from my closet that frequency see a light, like tie color hoodies and a span of mistake boa-constrictor pants that go on a Coyote Ugly waitress. It’s all developed for regret, though 2019 is also a year of not permitting anything stop me from perplexing new things.” — Justine Carreon, Market Editor


Get improved about cleaning out my closet and donating aged garments

“Since my unit has singular closet space, we wish to work on vouchsafing go of some pieces that meant a lot to me in a past and reconfiguring my character for who we am now in my late twenties contra who we was when we initial graduated college.” — Alyssa Bailey, News Editor

Stop personification it so safe

“A crony recently showed me clips from Produce 101, a existence uncover about formulating a K-Pop lady group. Looking during all a diverse, rarely specific outfits, we immediately said, “I’ve done a outrageous mistake with my wardrobe.” What we meant is, we keep things sincerely same-same and safe. But these immature women are all so committed to a look—whether it’s gothy streetwear, proper pastel lounging attire, or schoolgirl plaid with a tough Off-White-ish twist. we wish to stop personification it so safe. we competence not be auditioning for a cocktail group, though we could mount to step it a ruin up. No some-more small black dresses in 2019!” — Estelle Tang, Culture Editor

Let my weird dwindle fly

One of my ubiquitous new year’s resolutions is to let my weird dwindle fly, though generally when it comes to my conform choices. I’ve by no means “played it safe” adult until 2019 though I’m unequivocally disposition into sauce like an additional on a set of Coyote Ugly. Wearing some-more rings than a host boss, and slicing my hair in a extreme way. we consider 2018 unequivocally did a series on me since I’m headed into 2019 with guns blazing, sauce like we have zero to lose. My moodboard is full of inspo from Cher, Slick Woods, Erika Jayne, and a marketplace editor Justine Carreon. — Chloe Hall, Writer/Producer


Only buy things that fit on my character mood board

As someone who loves to emporium and works in fashion, my problem is that it’s easy to get swept adult in microtrends or of-the-moment pieces. Nine times out of 10, that arrange of squeeze formula in something we usually wear a few times or never feels utterly right for me and a truest partial of my personal style. In 2019, I’m going to equivocate those moments by meditative about any would-be buy by a lens of an spontaneous character mood board. Because images work improved than catchwords or deceptive ideas about what constitutes your personal style, I’m going to adult my Pinterest diversion and check behind frequently on a few Instagram accounts that unequivocally pronounce to me (@amandacbrooks is commanding a list right now). — Leah Clinton, Director of Branded Editorial Strategy

Dry purify and tailor my clothes

It’s always a object on my to-do list that we pull aside. I’ll get to this flourishing raise of dry cleaning and tailoring later! we tell myself. And by after we mean…never. But we adore removing dressed and we have invested in pieces that make me demeanour and feel good. I’d like to provide those things with some-more care. — Leah Chernikoff, Executive Director
