Five New Year’s Resolutions for your Wardrobe

Can you believe it’s resolution time again? We’re still trying to remember our optimistic dreams and vows from last year…

Anyway. While you’ve been debating over whether to join a gym and actually turn up once a week or not, we have five resolutions that you will want to keep and won’t involve you hauling ass to the treadmill. We have scoured the current collections of our favorite brands to bring you five wardrobe resolutions that will ensure 2014 is your most stylish year yet.

Mix and match our selection of essentials for easy dressing that won’t let you down all year round…

1. The T-shirt

During the colder months, layer this staple T ($72) beneath your sweat or wear it solo once the summer hits; the supreme quality will ensure it lasts throughout 2014 and beyond. The super soft Egyptian cotton fabric and classical fit found Sunspel’s bold promise that this is the best T-shirt you will ever wear.

2. The Sweater

London-based brand Good Measure is undoubtedly one to watch for 2014. Any lover of luxury basics will admire their M-21 Crew Neck Sweatshirt ($131) for the quality and purity of its design. Crafted from 350g loop back jersey, this sweat features all the design features of vintage US sportswear, from the ribbed V-neck insert to the cover stitched seams.

3. The Jacket

Jacket trends come and go – 2013 was undoubtedly the year of the varsity right? Think classical and pared-back for 2014 and you’ll literally be able to work it with anything in your wardrobe. The Motorcycle Jacket ($460) by A.P.C. will last a lifetime. Layer your trusty sweat beneath it until summer when you can change up for your white T – razor-sharp and timeless.

4. The Jean

True denim dudes know Japanese denim is the only way to go right now. Our Legacy’s Raw Blue Jeans ($192) were made in Italy using only the finest raw 12 oz Japanese denim. The deep indigo shade is spot on for 2014 and details including the exposed rivets and removable front cotton-loop create a timeless workwear vibe.

5. The Boot

French footwear brand Paraboot are set for a huge resurgence in 2014. Either way, we love their Chamrousse boot ($536.58) in this versatile smooth coffee hue. The boot is Norwegian sewn and features a durable rubber sole and smooth full-grain calf leather outer. These babies will probably go with everything in our wardrobe and will take you from work to weekend in one smooth stride.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
