New Look for the New Year


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 how we show up!  The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding our attitude, outfit and how we interact with each other. 

Recently, we watched Brooke Shields, “A Castle Christmas” movie which reminded me of when I met her at Revolution Fitness in Santa Monica (unfortunately it closed).  

She exudes a positive, friendly attitude and has a wonderful sense of style. She complimented the Beksan jewelry I was wearing (and of course I forgot to bring a business card to spin class)!  It was fun to spin with her, but it was her attitude I appreciated most and has made me a fan! 

Many customers ask us for style tips!

This week, a customer came up to us and said, “I am so tired of wearing black 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’s already got the attitude of being open to new ideas. To assist her, we suggested she experiment with new clothing colors, jewelry, and accessories to complement her desired look.  She mentioned she wanted to integrate more, coral, light gray and green tones into her wardrobe. 

Interesting because these colors are included on the Pantone Colors for Spring/Summer 2022! 

Think Coral Rose, Northern Droplet and Fair Green, a few new colors we are highlighting for the new year! 


A good staple for her would be a light gray sweater or jacket.  Adding a coral or green tone scarf to a black or light grey top is another easy way to include color.  We showed her our colorful silk and pashmina scarves too. 

Putting on a vibrant gemstone necklace, ring, earrings, or bracelet will also brighten one’s look.  For this customer, we proposed chalcedony, green aventurine, labradorite or quartz gemstones.

She left with great ideas on how to create a new look for herself and you can do the same!  With an open mind, try new colors--perhaps the Pantone shades suggested here--jewelry & and accessory combinations that might work for you.
