NY 2014: Your Most Stylish Year Ever Starts Here

Day outfit:Denim shirt Mango; Jeans – Elizabeth & James; Coat – By Marlene Birger; Shoes – Acne Studios; Bag – Michael Kors; Sunglasses Ray Ban; Necklace –Nasty Gal;

For everyday wear, try the “Canadian tuxedo”, which actually means double denim. Of course, you don’t want to look like a cowboy of sorts, so pick cool jeans and an even cooler shirt. Make it work with this winter’s trendiest coat – a pink pastel one – and a pair of masculine brogues in a pastel color. No denim shirt is cool without a statement necklace on top, and don’t forget your best mirror-lensed sunglasses either. Finally, a leather crossbody bag will be easy to carry and large enough to fit your daily essentials.

Night outfit: Dress – DKNY; Jacket – Kenzo; Tights – Spanx; Ankle boots – Givenchy; Sunglasses Marc Jacobs; Bangles – Monsoon; Clutch – Street Level;

If you’re headed for the clubs or a party, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress, no matter the year. Keep warm with a pair of opaque tights and a cool shearling jacket. Have fun with your shoes, by picking printed, heeled ankle boots, and colorful bangles all around. A fun clutch will make your outfit whole, and you’ll be happy you brought sunglasses with you when you leave the party the next morning.

So, here are ten easy tips that will help you develop your own fashion style.

Check what you have in your wardrobe and choose those items that fit your figure and give up those that you can no longer wear and accessorize.

2. Make a list of details that you really like
Rate each item of clothing that you know really want to keep in the closet and write what you like about it. The cut, color, sleeves, details, applications. With such a list then you can go shopping because you will know clearly what to choose and what you can wear it with.

3. Find inspiration

Browse magazines, watch special programs or fashion shows on TV (check out the Time Warner Cable Deals for style TV on demand) look for trends that strike you. If you get compliments and people say you look like some celebrity, search the web to find out what she dresses like.

4. Ask for help
When you encounter problems and you’re afraid to fail, ask an objective opinion. Ask a close friend whose style you admire. Or you can go to a fashion boutique or a designer shop. There, a specialist could give you great advice, even if you don’t buy anything.

5. Don’t forget the shoes
A new pair of shoes can bring a certain something to any outfit. Find shoes that you can wear on several occasions and match the general style you’re aiming for.

Highlight your outfit adding some interesting accessories. It can be something as simple as colored laces for shoes or a belt. For a more daring look add jewelry, scarves, hats and hair accessories.

Try to accessorize different clothing items in your wardrobe to get a unique look. For example, even if you think your new white top doesn’t go with Capri pants, try it anyway. Maybe all you need to tie this outfit together is that belt that you haven’t worn since last summer.

9. Change your hairstyle
True, hair has nothing to do with clothing, but can totally change your appearance. Arrange your hair differently every morning and try new shampoos and styling products. If you want to radically change your hairstyle or hair color, consult a stylist who can advise you what is the best look for you. Inspire yourself from magazines or websites and show your stylist photos.
