7 Ways to Change Your Look in 2013 ...

Are you searching for subtle or bold ways to change your look? Then, you've come to the right place. Check out these seven easy ways to change your look in 2013, because no woman should stay in the style past!

1. Makeup

Changing up your makeup routine is one of the easiest ways to change your look. You've probably already seen pictures of celebrities with and without their makeup, right? If you haven’t, the differences are extraordinary – they look like completely different people! So, naturally, even slight changes in your makeup routine can take your look from sub-par to glam. Therefore, jump start the New Year with a new makeup item; whether it's a bold new lipstick, a smoky eye shadow palette or something else you've been meaning to try.

2. Hair

Try something different with your hair. If you always wear it down, try putting it up. There are so many types of up-dos that you can try, such as a fishtail braid. You can also part your hair on different sides as well, giving you a whole different look! If you’re into bolder changes like I am, head on over to your local hair salon. If you don’t have bangs, get them! If you have long hair, cut it short! If you want to dye your hair a different color or add highlights, go for it! The good thing about hair is that it always grows back.

3. Nail Art

Nail art designs range from animal print, to different geometric patterns, to even little adorable creatures, like penguins. Nail art is perfect for the woman who wants to add a bit of personality to her look, but not overwhelm herself in it. Plus, if you want to go even crazier, you can do your toenails too!

4. Patterned Belts

Another subtle way to add some flair into your look is by using a patterned belt. There are studded belts, animal print belts, colored belts and more. The thing with belts is that you can change them up as often as you like and they won’t break your budget.

5. Scarves

Scarves have recently upgraded from just merely being used for warmth; they've become fashion statements as well. Just like belts, there are different patterns, ranging from floral to animal print, which you can use to accessorize any outfit. You can also turn almost any scarf (if it’s long enough), into a belt by just lacing it through the belt loops of your favorite pair of pants!

6. Jewelry

Jewelry can make a big statement on its own. Yet, you don’t need to stack on ten bangles or three necklaces in order to make a statement. Snatch up a new piece of jewelry (or two or three!) to accessorize your outfits. Perhaps a chunky gemstone ring or a glitzy watch or necklace will do the trick.

7. Handbags

Whether it is a clutch, a tote or a satchel, the perfect bag can add an unexpected element to your look. With a variety of patterns, a handbag can either create a pop of color or help reveal a bit of your wild side without turning your whole outfit into a gaudy mess.

These are just a few ways to change your look in 2013. Whether you decide to go for something more drastic (like changing up your entire wardrobe!) or just adding a new belt or two, the key to upgrading your style for the New Year is to try something new. So, are you planning on using any of these ways to change up your look for next year? Or do you have another way that you’re upgrading your look?
