The Fashion-isha 10-The Must-Haves to Get Organized, Stylish and Fit in the New Year

Monday, December 28, 2015

Can you believe that 2016 is already upon us? It's time to make our New Year's Resolutions and get organized, get stylish, and get fit. And I'm here to help. I've compiled a list of 10 must-haves for the new year to help make formulating and achieving our goals a snap. 
Do you ever wonder how some women manage to have it all together, accomplish so much, and always seem to look amazing? It's difficult, but not impossible. Below you will find a list of items that will help you do just that in the quickest, easiest and most stylish ways. Let's start with...

Getting Organized...

OK this is just fabulous. It's a beautifully designed daily planner like no other, with daily inspirational quotes, a place to jot down what you thank Hashem for, what's for dinner and so much more. It is fun to use and prioritizes your lists and your life. It also has all of the Jewish holidays, candle lighting times, fast start and end times and little tidbits from the Torah from some of our greatest sages.

Enrich your life by getting off your smart phone for a few moments to use an actual pen and this planner. After all, physically writing things down is still the best way to remember and get things done.

Must-Have #3-Asymetric Top by Byrd by Tzippy
Designer Tzippy Waltner describes her pieces as versatile, transitional, year round, and classic with an edge. Each piece stands out in a crowd while maintaining modesty. This asymmetrical top is perfection. I can't wait to see how this label takes flight.

Must-Have #4-A SevenTwo Denim Skirt
This is a basic you will live in. Everyone needs a SevenTwo Denim pencil skirt, and the leather-like wax finish makes this "jean" skirt versatile enough to be dressed up or down and styled in 100's of ways. It simply looks great on everyone because of its advanced stretch fabric and perfect design.

Must-Have #5-Cool Sneakers to Wear with Your New Outfits
White sneakers are so on trend now! When did fashion get so easy? (And comfortable?) Shop these and my other cool picks below:

Must-Have #6-A Stylish Beanie by Atifa
Top your looks off with a chic and cozy beanie by Atifa! Having a bad sheitel day? Throw on this beanie (comes in several colors) and go from flat to fabulous in a flash. Or wear it as a snood for the ultimate in comfortable hair covering. Atifa also sells real fur hats and bands.

Must-Have #7-A Swim Dress by Undercover Waterwear
Not only a must-have throughout the summer and for winter break, I personally wear my Undercover Waterwear skirts and dresses for anything and everything (they are especially practical on wet and rainy days because they dry so quickly.) Constructed from amazing, quick dry, spf fabric, they come in a variety of gorgeous patterns and silhouettes that are super flattering too.

Eve Cantor a fashion lover and expert helps women rediscover or maximize their fashion choices from their existing outfits.
