Everyone always says “new year, new me,” but why does it always seem like the new you never comes around to visit? Turn that motto into a genuine reality by overhauling and transforming your look. It’s far more than the clothes that make the woman, it’s her skin, her smile, and most importantly, her confidence, that bring life to her name. Before making another feeble New Year’s commitment to self-improvement, try these tips to transform your style in 2019!

Know your look

Having a complete and unwavering understanding of what your style is will make life infinitely easier when shopping for new threads. Are you more of a classic minimalist woman or a colorful flowery woman? Consider your lifestyle. Are you always on the go, or are you usually cooped up in an office? How do you usually spend your days, and what footwear best suits your regularly activities? Before shopping til you drop, know what look you’re aiming for, and stick to it!

Reinvent your wardrobe

Now that you know what vibe you’re looking to put out into the world, it’s time to take a trip to your closet and purge it of any items that don’t fit the bill. We get it, decluttering is stressful, especially since you know exactly how much every tee and pair of jeans cost. But no one said commitment was easy! Donate your old look to your local clothing donation center, someone else will make better use out of your tired denim!

Redo that hairdo

Admit it ladies, once we find a low-maintenance hairstyle that we like, we stick to it for years. Nothing says “new me” like a fresh haircut. Do a bit of searching on Instagram and Pinterest to pin down a look you’re willing to try, and find a salon that can deliver the results you’re looking for. A cold visit to a salon hairdresser can also help you come up with ideas best suited for your face, age, and frame. No one wants to end up with a ridiculous hairdo, so do your research first!

Refresh your footwear

When reinventing your look, don’t forget to sort through your collection of shoes. Though we’d like to believe that shoes can outlast clothing or that worn shoes have a fashionable aesthetic to them, we’re really just lying to ourselves. Toss the old sneakers, bag the busted heels, and trade them in for new kicks. From adorable pointed teacher flats to squeaky clean nude pumps, your wardrobe is not complete without a trusty band of shoes.

Maintain a regular skin routine

Any good skincare routine has at least three steps; cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. Though you may think that simple washing your face everyday is enough to keep oil and dead skin away, more often than not, you’ll need to do a bit more. Before scouring the market for the best reviewed skin products, make sure you know your skin type down to a T. Depending on your skin’s oiliness, dryness, or sensitivity, your skincare essentials will probably look very different from Kim Kardashian’s skincare regimen. Few things in the world feel better than being comfortable in your own skin. No makeup, no problem, all 2019!

Reel in your makeup regimen

In the age of Youtube makeup tutorials reigning supreme in the beauty industry, most women love to pretend that their self-taught makeup look is the most flattering for their face. Yes, those colorful and deeply contoured looks are inspirational in more ways than one, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they translate well from face to face. Hone your makeup routine to a few essentials to accomplish the near no-makeup look, and grow from there. Leave your days of heavy smokey eyes and heavy bronzing in the past with a new and improved makeup method.

Spice it up

In 2019, there will be no room for “what if”’s. Stop wondering if you can rock those 5 inch blue heels. Stop thinking and just do it! Changing your style is not easy and takes a lot of guts to actually do, but it’s important to remember that only you can define you. Those shoes you’ve been wishing you could pull off? Buy them. That skirt that hugs your hips just right, get it! Have some fun while reinventing yourself, because as they say, new year, new you!
