New Year, new wardrobe

Written byLeah Cassady

Ok so it’s 2013 and in keeping with the New Year, why not try something new, something you wouldn't usually go for, or simply a new trend.

There are many new items you can add to your wardrobe to help create yourself a new look, plus it’s the end of January meaning pay day for most of us! So here are a few of our favourite items that we’ve put together to help inspire you to try something new.

Watches are primarily practical items, but we all know with so much choice out there that you can use them to make a statement or add to a look.

If you’re an animal lover or want to try something a little quirky, you’ll love this unique cat watch.

Black Cat Ears Watch from Chelsea Doll, £15

Retro keeps making an appearance, I know technically its old but if you haven’t tried any retro pieces now is the time to add something different to your wardrobe.

This cute retro dress with its bold print could do wonders for your figure so why not give it a go.

This bold bag is the ideal size for carrying all daily essentials and with such a classic design and colour, it’ll go with anything and won’t go out of style in a hurry.

Plus with such a purse friendly price you won’t need much to invest in this staple piece for your new wardrobe.

Flats are great for giving our feet a rest after the party season we’ve had, and these comfy numbers are just the thing with a great range of different styles.  We just love this star style and can’t wait to get our hands on them when the range is available from the end of February.

I am a big fan of gold but never actually go for chunky bracelets or bangles, so this bold item caught my eye.

I can picture it with a black dress and possibly even those gold tipped shoes mentioned earlier.

Midi skirts and dresses are taking over from the Maxi craze that started a few years back.

So why not see if this trend suits you with this monochrome skirt. Plus you can enjoy the slimming affect of the vertical stipes and flowing material.

This blouse can be glammed up for an evening out or worn casual for a day in the office.

The splash of colour in the floral pattern looks great and the long cuffs mean you won’t be forever rolling up your sleeves throughout the day.

If you don’t have any ear piercings but like jewellery, ear cuffs are the perfect statement piece for you as no piercing is required.

Even if you do have your ears pierced it’s still a great accessory to try. This dragon cuff really stands out and has great detailing.

If you haven’t noticed, there seem to be a few shoes around with metallic tips. If you love a bit of bling why not dip your toe into this trend with these golden tipped stilettoes.
