As we wave goodbye to Christmas, and look forward to 2013, it may also be time to think about what clothes you wear. A New Year is the perfect time to reinvigorate your wardrobe with some new styles.
However, if like many you’re feeling the pinch on your wallet after your Christmas spending, by choosing the right items and shopping in the right place there are still plenty of ways you can freshen up your style without throwing out your old clothes or decimating your bank balance. Here are a few tips on what to look out for and factor in to your style for the coming months:
