Another new year!  Now is the time to scope out some new trends that we all can look forward to.

1. Minimal makeup

After so many seasons of bold lips and eyes, this season the makeup trend looks fresh and clean, just wear a bright and rosy blush.  It’s quick and easy, but looks like it took you all morning to perfect this look.

2. Add a pop of color

I’m all about a great basic, but this year, I’m breaking out of my handbag rut and switching the classic black tote for something a bit brighter.  Nothing like adding a little cheer to those dreary days.

3. 1970’s fab

With so many new high-waisted, wide-leg styles coming on the scene for spring, I’m already feeling longer and leaner!  But don’t get rid of your favorite skinny jeans (trust me, you’ll want them back in a few years).  Oh, and heels are an absolute must with the flare leg silhouette.

4. Making a statement

With the season’s clean, low bun, there’s nothing more glamorous and simple than a pair of statement earrings.  Tip: scour eBay and Etsy for some great, affordable vintage rhinestones or a great pair of hoops.

5. Fresh haircut

I’ve been obsessed with model, Arizona Muse, and her versatile ’40s bob.  If you’re ready to make a big hair change…there’s no better time than the present.
