Editor's picks: style resolutions for 2011

Whether it’s taking more sartorial chances or getting back to basics, our editors share their style resolutions for 2011.


“My resolution is to pare down. Instead of staring into a closet full of clothes I no longer wear, I want to see a perfectly edited wardrobe filled with only my favorites. I also want to wear my hair down more often instead of throwing it into my daily ponytail.”

– Jennifer Davidson, cofounder and managing director

“I need to focus on buying staples for my wardrobe that are classics.”

– Beth Herbst, cofounder and style director

“My style resolution is to save up and invest in some high quality shoes. I’ve been wearing the same pair of heels, boots, and flats for a couple of years and they are in dire need of replacement. But I know if I splurge on a cheap pair, I’ll regret it when the shoes start to fall apart in a month!”

– Anna Rice, StyleBakeryTeen fashion and beauty editor

“More high heels all day long! They make me feel sexy and more motivated to run errands or pick up dry cleaning. I vow to sport colored lips in fuschia, orange, beet red, or boysenberry at least 4 times a week. And to put just as much effort into styling my personal daily look as I do into my clients for television makeovers and segments.”

– Daisy Lewellyn, style contributor and “queen of effortless chic”

“I resolve to clean out my closet and donate the things I no longer wear. I also have a tentative resolution to use fewer heat styling tools on my hair, but I’m not so sure that one will work out!”

– Tanya Sharma, daily scoop editor

“In the new year I want to find great staples to anchor my wardrobe.”

– Stephany McKnight, celebrity dish editor

“I’m going to try to wear fewer hoodies and put real outfits together, even when I’m just going to write at Starbucks.”

– Andrea Thatcher, StyleBakeryTeen star style editor

“I’d like to take more chances. Sometimes I feel like I’m a bit too safe with my fashion choices! Whether it’s sequins for day or the aforementioned skinny cargo, I want to try new things.”

– Jamie Allison Sanders, beauty editor

“My style resolutions for the New Year are to wear more dresses and to find the perfect pair of vintage cowboy boots.”

– Haley Hogan, StyleBakeryTeen gossip editor

“In 2011, I’m going to update my wardrobe with all the key staples one should have: a little black dress, black pants, a perfect pair of skinny jeans, a classic white button down shirt and a trench coat. From there, I can mix-and-match with the year’s best trends.”

– Christine Fox, StyleBakeryMom style editor

“I have a closet full of beautiful pieces that never see the light of day. Some even still have tags! I am going to try to forget my boring usual daily look (jeans and sweater) and find ways to incorporate these pieces into my now-casual style.”

– Courtney Strimel, StyleBakeryMom style editor

“Try harder. Sometimes, I fall into a boring routine, and I don’t mix it up enough. I resolve to make new outfits out of the ones I already have.”

– Arlyn Hernandez, beauty editor

“1. To avoid getting a bee in my bonnet, for the millionth time in my life, and cut my hair short thinking I will look tragically hip; 2. I love Olivia Palermo’s sense of fashion, so perhaps to channel some of her good taste into my choices; 3. Wear more tights! As a native Californian, I avoid tights vehemently, but I really would like to wear them!”

– Stacy Cox, TV expert and style contributor
