With the start of a new year, now is the time to embrace a fresh style agenda and step out of your comfort zone. Less about giving something up, more about trying something new, we've got 10 resolutions to guide you into 2018 for an on-trend approach to the season.


1. Get nostaglic




Whether you want to embrace '90s graphics, resurgence trainers or puffed sleeves, throw it back to your favourite trend of times gone by this year. Add a modern twist with fresh accessories or some delicate jewellery.


Converse All Star Hi Leather Trainers £59.99


2. Experiment with colour




Colour clashing is big for 2018, with unlikely marriages of shades now acceptable and stylish. Combine palettes of green and lilac or red and pink, and breathe life into your wardrobe.


Warehouse Boxy Funnel Rib Jumper £46.00


3. Embrace the red lip




To refresh your beauty regime, step away from the smokey palette and focus on your lips. A touch of rouge is all you need for a chic finish.


Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Matte Lipstick £28.00


4. Double up your denim




Don't be afraid to layer up your denim. Try mixing indigo blue jeans with a light wash jacket, or black jeans with a white denim shirt to nail transitional style.


Levi's Original Trucker Jacket £85.00


5. Have fun




Tassels, pom poms, bows, sparkle - say yes to it all. There's no guilty pleasures when it comes to style this year.


KG Khloe Slippers £129.00


6. Oversize it




Break out of your comfort zone this year and give wide-legged trousers, baggy knits and billowing trench coats a go.


Linea Karey Oversized Trench Coat £149.00


7. Make it personal




Instead of buying something new, why not add a unique twist to what you already have? Personalise your jeans, or add a statement strap to your favourite handbag.


Biba Mixed Handbag Strap £29.00


8. Let your jewellery do the talking




In the spirit of nostalgia, it's the year to welcome back bold jewellery. Look to classic icons like Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe and take note of how to style oversized earrings and statement bling.


Kate Spade New York Shine On Pave Drop Earrings £50.00


9. Throw more shade




Winter sunshine calls for signature shades to be paired with a classic coat and some cosy knitwear. And timeless styles such aviators and wayfarers will see you through summer too.


Ray-Ban Clubmaster Folding Sunglasses £218.00


10. Find your sporty side




Make sportswear work harder this year by sneaking active trends into your work wardrobe. Jogging pants work with knits and heels, and athleisure sweaters can dress down statement flares for a cooler edge.


Ted Baker Gabtay Jogger With Velvet Stripe £119.00
