2013 Style Resolutions

It may be debatable if “the unexamined life is not worth living,” but everyone should certainly take the coming of a new year as a reason to reexamine her closet. BAZAAR recruited ten stylish insiders to tell us how they’ll be updating their approach to fashion for 2013.

Claire Distenfeld, Owner Fivestory

“I’ve loved the year of 2012 and all the patterns and colors that it had to offer. I find myself simplifying things when looking into the new year. I’ve honed in on my ‘power colors’ as I like to call them: red, green and navy and decided if I can buy as much as possible with that mindset, everything will have a nice dialogue. I’m also really looking forward to strengthening my vest obsession. I bought myself a Dries Van Noten one while I was in Paris this past fashion week in navy embossed croc and have literally lived in it!”

Tamu McPherson, All the Pretty Birds

“My style resolution is to edit my closet so that I can make room for great pieces like Altuzarra’s Spring collection (bottom right) and this look from Suno (top). I plan to donate the pieces that I’m no longer wearing to a home for young mothers in Milan where I live.”

Jessica Hart, Model

“To wear less black! With the exception of leather pants.”

Hannah Bronfman, Entrepreneur

“My style resolution is to make a statement! Perhaps it’s making a fun beauty statement with a minimal outfit or it’s a wild fashion piece and no makeup at all. I think the contrast of the two make for an understated, yet chic look.”

Evangelie, Styleheroine

“In the new year I need to make things a little less complicated, thus I plan to incorporate more roomy day-to-night bags into my looks. Until now I’d refused to give up my favorite shoulder bags — I’m not much of a tote girl — but after upgrading my camera to a much heavier one, it’s time to resign myself to a bag that can handle more weight. In chasing down the perfect spacious-yet-elegant choice, I stumbled upon a surprisingly good one — Céline’s Edge. Refined yet amazingly edgy, it can easily be tucked under the arm, without needing to switch it up for the night. I’m sold.”

Erica Domesek, P.S. I Made This

“I have been wanting to organize all of my accessories for years. My New Year’s resolution is to pull inspiration from my crazy organized craft closet and create the most amazing new home for all of my jewelry, scarves, sunglasses, gloves and more. It’s going to be an epic new accessory armoire that will make my life complete!”

Jennifer Fisher, Jewelry Designer

“My New Year’s style resolution is to embrace more color and prints for spring.”

“My style resolution is to invest in more transition pieces. I’m bouncing between LA and NYC so often and need pieces I can layer and also mix and match like Stella McCartney’s super chic classic suits and comfortable flats that I can wear from day to night — like these whimsical Charlotte Olympia flats.”

“I usually do not make resolutions for the new year, but this year I plant to simplify my wardrobe. I have too much of everything! Starting with anything that has not been worn within the last year — off they go to women’s shelters. And I am not going to cave in to high street temptations, 2013 will be one of quality, not quantity.”

Reece Soloman, Designer Reece Hudson

“In the new year I will embrace a more refined, modern approach to power dressing.”
