New year…new look ;-)

3 Jan

With 2013 already in full swing, many of us are resolving to make changes, so why not start with shaping up your wardrobe! From a waist cinching belts to colored denim pieces, here are some items to be sure to add to your wardrobe and that will ramp up your look in 2013!

1. Add Color – Colored jeans—from pastel to bright—are an easy, affordable, and versatile way to incorporate a big color trend into your wardrobe. The look offers a playful edge to your everyday pieces, and you can dress it up with a blazer, like Duchess Catherine and sister Pippa Middleton, or go casual like Zoe Saldana and Camila Alves.  Instyle Mag editor, says “don’t be afraid to pair bright denim with a colorful top—an equally bold blouse creates a fun color-block effect.”  Take a look at our selection of Made in the USA colored bottoms available at MiUS Collection:

2.  Add a belt – For a simple way to define your waist when you’re wearing a voluminous skirt or flowy top, wrap a  belt around your middle. Let it stand out by keeping the rest of your accessories on the subtle side (minimal jewelry). Here is actress, Lauren Graham wearing a waist cinch belt with pencil skirt combo:

3. Add Leggings –  Your favorite roomy wrap sweater needs only one thing to go from couch to street—leggings! The stretchy (hence comfy 😉 ) pant creates a slender bottom half, balancing out your sweater’s bulk. Add a waist-defining belt like Rihanna for a chic, cold-proof look!

4. Add a great handbag – Investment bags are worth their hefty price tags because you’ll carry them forever. To guarantee your bag will never go out of style, look for a classic lines, add a pop of color for fun. We have some particularly eye-catching handbags available at MiUS.  My personal preference are cross-body bags.  In fact, they are huge for this season, a trend we luv ❤ , as it takes zero effort and scores you mega style points!  Here is Jessica Alba sporting a beautiful crossbody bag:

WHY does everyone love it??

This style is super-flattering because it cinches in the waist and flatters the hips giving the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure. This is a style that looks good on most people, and as the peplum itself is a great statement piece it means you only need minimum jewelry and accessories to complete your look.

We have two gorgeous peplum dresses at MiUS Collection:

Curvy size - Peplum
