After technical difficulties and holiday binging plagued my year-end steez, it is time to turn the page and get dialed in for 2012. Yes, fiscal diets have begun and shopping has become a bore of a chore, but thankfully there are still gift cards lurking and fugly presents yet to be exchanged. This wintertime lull is the perfect opportunity for easy investments to spark up your style. Give in to the cold in a plush parka and hooded knits; rock some sleek high-tops and give the rain boots a rest; bag a colorful satchel that will carry you well into spring; pamper your skin with renewing at-home treatments; defy the blues by slurping down some D; ditch the skinnies for a cold minute in favor of flares; update the most necessary staple of all: the chambray shirt; lastly, a funky bauble in a classic setting pulls it all together. Practical resolutions, indeed!
