New year, same old wardrobe?
If you’re attempting to start off 2021 on a positive foot, start by looking at your shoes.
This is the perfect time of year to cleanse your wardrobe of old items and replace them with stylish options you’ll actually want to wear.
Fashion influencer Alyssa Amoroso shared her tips with TODAY for ditching the old and bringing in the new. As we start the new year, she recommends getting rid of any mismatched items that should come in pairs (like gloves or socks) and tossing out anything with holes and stains. If you haven’t worn an item of clothing in more than a year, it may be time to say goodbye. After all, your closet needs room for the new.
It’s time to toss those salt-stained boots and step into something a bit more comfortable.
A beanie is one of the most practical items in any winter wardrobe. “It's warm enough to shield you from the cold and small enough to get tucked inside your coat pocket or purse as needed,” Amoroso said. And, in a pinch, it can help you easily mask any bad hair day.
Winter scarves do far more than just keep your neck warm. They’re one of the most visible accessories you have all season. This version comes in a bevy of bright colors and patterns — old school with an arctic blue plaid or classic plain red — to add a fun pop to your outwear, no matter your style. And some colors are on sale for as low as $18 right now.
Everyone needs a pair of winter gloves that will go with everything. “Whether you're keeping them in your glove compartment or wearing them on a day out, you can never go wrong with a neutral pair,” Amoroso said. This black plaid pair adds a bit of flair without sacrificing any matchability.
A good pair of winter boots is like a pair of snow tires: They’re built for traction. But a great pair of winter boots has traction, a sole that will keep you elevated and style aplenty. These chunky chelsea boots hit all the important marks. And they look so good, you might be tempted to wear them all the way until summer.
We’re spending our days hanging around the house for the foreseeable future. Now is the time to invest in some durable (and chic) loungewear. This soft cardigan has a ribbed neckline so you can look good on video calls without sacrificing an ounce of comfort.
When building your winter wardrobe, consider cozy, neutral pieces. Not only will you never want to take them off, they’ll look good no matter what you’re doing. This hooded cardigan is equally stylish layered with a tailored coat for a winter stroll or thrown over your softest t-shirt for a movie marathon.
No item of jewelry is as timeless as gold hoops. Huggies in particular are a classic, no-fuss option. This version from BaubleBar comes in a variety of sizes, perfect for stacking across multiple piercings.
Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. This pair of star-shaped studs adds a touch of whimsy to your ear without overpowering the rest of your jewelry. Plus, they work either dressed up or dressed down, meaning you could (theoretically) wear the same earrings all winter long.
