Style resolutions for 2024

Stylist-approved fashion habits to form in 2024

3 January 2024

What are your resolutions for the new year? Apprendre le français, perhaps? To get organised? Read more books? And what about your wardrobe? So often we feel we have nothing to wear when, really, it just requires a little creative thinking or some help from those in the know. So, we asked the talented trio of stylists – Jessica, Angie and Kate – behind Sloane Street’s Private Shopping service, to share their favourite resolutions for the new year. 

And if you’d prefer some one-to-one advice, you can book an appointment with one of the stylists, who will offer fail-safe advice on fashion conundrums big and small.

Invest in quality

The number-one rule for a good wardrobe is to invest in high-quality essentials that will stand up to frequent wear. “These are the building blocks of a functional wardrobe – the pieces you’ll go back to time after time, that will see you through this season and beyond, such as jeans, jackets and boots,” explain the stylists.

Brunello Cucinelli boots, £1,650 

Take one fashion risk a month

In a world full of influencers, saved collections on Instagram and Pinterest boards, it can be easy – and sometimes useful – to simply copy a look. But the best way to make your style unique is to take a risk and see if it works out. It could be a pair of bold earrings when you never usually wear any, or trying heels when trainers are your go-to. “Thinking outside of the box helps you discover new styles you never imagined trying before. Consider interesting silhouettes and embellishments,” say the stylists.

Update your accessories often

It is amazing how a few choice accessories can change the look of an outfit, so updating your collection often can create many more options in your existing wardrobe. The right bag can take a look from day to night, and a simple scarf can make everything look that much more chic. “These are the items that will update and elevate your outfits easily,” say the stylists.

Hermès scarf, £190
Valentino belt, £440
Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses, £253
Fendi Baguette mini bag, £2,550
Tiffany & Co. T1 pendant, £3,350

Invest in a timepiece

A watch is a significant investment piece that, when cared for well, will last a lifetime. Sloane Street has an abundance of options, including the iconic Audemars Piguet, Arije and Cartier. For the right balance between style and practicality, our stylists suggest the Hermès x Apple watch, which comes in a variety of straps and colours.

Shop often, but not on demand

Refining your personal style also means choosing when, and how much, to invest in trends. Take inspiration from current fashion trends in the form of subtle nods, rather than full-fledged adherence – the key here is not being too reactive to what you’ve seen online, and instead considering whether it fits into your own vision. If you love accessorising and want to tap into this season’s pretty bow trend, for example, invest in a delicate ribbon hair clip rather than a bold bow-covered dress, which you might not wear as often. 

Our stylists can also offer expert advice. They say: “Know your signature style, communicate this with Sloane Street’s Private Shopping team, and rest in the knowledge that our expert stylists will have it all planned and help you shop for what you need.”
