The alarm goes off, it’s still dark outside, and as you blearily stumble your way over to your wardrobe to squint inside, the eternal question burns: what to wear? It’s particularly tough in January, and perhaps tougher than ever, considering you have the weather to think about (Heattech at the ready) and perhaps a few extra festively won pounds to contend with. Still, there’s plenty to be done, and from adding a few smarter accents to your outfits or to give yourself some sartorial motivation to get to the gym, there’s also much to think about. With that in mind, here are three ways to switch up your style this January, as told by the latest additions to hit the shelves at MR PORTER.
