It’s time to activate those New Year resolutions and start working towards a fruitful and wonderful year ahead. Time flies and it was almost as if it was yesterday that we stepped in to 2016, and voila it is 2017 already!

On today’s edition of FIT OUT we are going to discuss about going shopping for statement pieces for your wardrobe. We need only few essentials to make an outfit look amazing this New Year. If you don’t already have your own go to casual outfits, this edition should benefit you.

Everyone needs to have a slightly baggy but figure outlining T-shirt. It would look chic if it was white, because with the right blazer it would elevate the simple casual outfit to a dressy casual look.

Denim jeans are an essential, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, straight cut, boot cut jeans are options. Try on different types and choose the best jean which makes you confident and comfy.

A leather or suede blazer is a basic one for casual outings, coffee dates and hangouts. It outlines the silhouette perfectly. If you’ve got one and it doesn’t fit well, it’s time to go to the tailor!

Silky top
You need a silky top which can be styled in different ways, accessorised with jewellery, shoes and bags. It can be of a neutral colour which makes you confident the most. A slinky blouse can make you feel confident even on the days you feel bloated.

Pants, skirts, leggings
Decide whether you like pants, skirts or leggings better. And opt to buy one of these for essential go to outfits. Make the above dressy top match with this bottom.

Go for a black pants or leggings if you are buying a legging or pant since it can be styled with any coloured top. Skirts should be matched with the top, or a long body-con black skirt, wrap around, midi length high waist black skirts would do too.

Summer dresses are the best option for casual attire. One dress which suits your body type and complexion which makes you confident should be invested in. A knit dress can also be your go to which can be worn with tights and flats or booties.

A good pair of flat sandals will pair up with virtually anything from shorts to jeans to flowing skirts to bathing suits—and can even sub in for slippers, for minimal vacation packing. A high heeled sandal is for a dressy casual look. Nude straps would be the wise option since it looks elegant and even can be worn for a black tie event! It’s also good to invest in a classic white sneaker to wear even for a little black dress when it’s casual.

A non-branded sturdy tote is an essential for the everyday wear and tear and can carry all the nonsensical stuff we women tend to carry. Upgrade yourself to a sleek wallet which doubles itself when needed to a casual clutch.

Invest in a delicate fine chain with a pave pendant which you can wear every day for the rest of your life. A silk scarf is an item that elevates a casual look and should be chosen as to your personal preference. Try to get a 100 per cent silk scarf as it is not too warm for our forever summer weather. Sunglasses will be a good option to buy this New Year to protect your eyes from the glare of the sun as well as for fashion purposes. A classic leather belt will frame the outfit in a chic way adding variety to your personality and fashion sense. Small studs, a watch and wristlet should also be added to the cart as well!

You’ve got your list for New Year’s shopping. Invest in some statement pieces and essentials which can be worn any day even when you’re grumpy and don’t want to look good. It should make you happy and confident. Happiness should be the main intention behind your fashion sense!
