What to Wear to Beat the January Blues

With the festivities of Christmas well and truly behind us, January can feel a bit flat. The first month of the year can be a hard month for a lot of us. Hot tea, a nice dip in the hot springs and a polka dot dress easily lifts my mood. With the Blues in mind, I thought it would be good to do a positive post to make your January a bit better. Here are some ideas to keep at least your outfit looking happy!

Don’t just save florals and prints for summer, because wearing them in winter will brighten our mood when we most need it.


Make an effort to wear vibrant colours! From bright blues, red and yellows, they’ll do the job in chasing away the January blues. Here are some brights that will help keep a smile on your face during these dreary January days.


The holidays are over, but it doesn’t mean you have to hide away your sparkly pieces. Wearing sequins is a sure fire way to lift spirits whilst simultaneously making a fashion statement.

The key to getting the look right is by mixing your sequin skirt with basics, such as knitwear and denim.
