January 2020, how did that happen? I can’t believe we are already in a new decade! There is something very inspiring about the start of a new year, it’s almost like a clean slate to start afresh and what better time to outline your goals and commit to them.
In shopping terms January isn’t the time to update your wardrobe, this is because the sales are in full swing and unless you are shopping for classic investment pieces it’s not a good idea to mindlessly fill your wardrob
Depending on the industry you work in and your affinity with that industry, dressing for work can be a challenge. When you then factor in your personal style and the differences in that style compared to your company culture you can have a minefield of complications.
