A new year, a new YOU!

It’s that time of year where we can “begin again”.  There is something refreshing about making a new start. What we’ve learned over the years is how much one’s attitude can impact behavior.  The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding our attitude. And at the start of this New Year, we can ask ourselves, “Can I be open to change the things that weren’t working for me last year?”

A customer recently came up to us and said, “I am so tired of wearing black and grey all the time but I don’t know how to bring color into my wardrobe.  How can I change in the New Year?”  The good news is she already has the attitude of being open to new ideas.  It’s funny but the way we dress and look also reflects our attitude.  To assist our customer, we suggested she experiment with new clothing colors, jewelry and accessories to complement her desired look.  She mentioned she wanted to integrate more, coral, burgundy and blue tones into her wardrobe. 


We thought a burgundy sweater or jacket would be a good first staple to add.  Adding a coral or blue tone or burgundy scarf to a black or light grey top is another easy way to add color.  We showed her our silk and pashmina scarves in these and other colors.  Putting on a colorful gemstone necklace, ring, earrings, or bracelet will also brighten one’s look.  For this customer, we proposed lapis, blue aquamarine, or turquoise earrings.  Agate or garnets would work well for the burgundy/coral shades if trying to add a bit of color to a grey outfit.


What was great is she left with ideas on how to create a new look for herself and you can do the same!  With an open mind, try new color, jewelry & accessory combinations that might work for you.  And if you have any questions, we’re here to assist with style tips either by email or with an in-person shopping appointment.  Contact meyla@beksandesigns.com or nevra@beksandesigns.com to learn more.


We appreciate all of you and wish you the best to achieve your new look in 2019!
