Like a lot of us in 2020, I’ve become a loungewear addict, but I have so many lovely pieces in my wardrobe that I'm just not wearing at all. With that in mind, I'm going to make more of an effort to actually wear the clothes I neglected during 2020. I’m also resolving to have more regular wardrobe clear outs – my aim is to make 2021 the year of ultimate organisation, so instead of keeping things ‘just in case’, if something can’t be altered or re-loved again, it’s going!

When it comes to shopping, my New Year's resolution is to buy less fast fashion and support slow fashion brands – especially new designers – who I believe it’s important to support. Also, for every purchase I make, I want to ask myself ‘do I really need this in my wardrobe, or can I live without it?’ Sleeping on those decisions first before buying will definitely help.

After a year of a lot of loungewear, I’m looking forward to being a bit more adventurous with my style, so I’ll be looking for a variety of good quality staples as well as some more statement pieces to keep things interesting. However, I’m also conscious of shopping less, so I’ll be ensuring the things I do buy can be mixed and matched to really optimise my wardrobe.

My aim for 2021 is to expand the list of brands that I shop from. I tend to gravitate towards the same labels each season and would love to incorporate some more French, Spanish and Scandi brands – as well as more independent retailers in the UK.

My strategy for 2021 will be a continuation of what I did in 2020, which is to avoid impulse purchases. That means not buying clothes for events and situations that might not happen, and instead focus on cool but comfortable pieces, like loose trousers and statement tops that I can wear for working from home, as well as Zoom calls with friends. I also want to add more colour and prints into my wardrobe to give all the timeless pieces I own a bit more personality.
Instead of consistently buying new things, this year I want to revitalise my existing wardrobe so I can wear more of it and find new ways to style different pieces. That includes tailoring pieces so they fit better, as well as investing in great shoes and accessories to bring some life to wardrobe staples like denim.

My first resolution is to discover new and lesser-known brands. It’s easy to fall into the habit of shopping at the same places, and while there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s a shame not to keep things fresh, especially when there are so many talented young designers out there. I’d also like to rent more clothes this year. I’m at a point now where I don’t want to buy something unless I can see myself wearing it again and again – renting gives you the chance to try pieces without the risk of buyer’s regret.

In 2021 I want to focus on building a more timeless wardrobe, investing in quality pieces that I can wear in multiple ways. I’d also like to curb my shopping habits and instead try to think about styling clothes I already have in ways I haven’t thought of before. Then, when I really feel like I won’t wear something again, I’ll be donating it to charity instead of throwing it away.
