2017 calls for a serious makeover, which means we have to do everything we can to be as strategic as possible when revamping our wardrobe for the new year. The key to renewing your wardrobe for the new year is to find elements that can be mixed, matched and paired with pieces you already have to create entirely new looks. We at One Brilliant decided to take a road trip and pay a visit to Shari Zatman, Professional Event Producer and Designer and owner of Perfectly Planned by Shari.
Shari not only has a true passion and eye for event design, but she has a natural flair for style and her attention to detail is impeccable. "One of the easiest ways to revamp your already existing wardrobe is to get creative", Shari says. "Take a simple blazer or leather jacket and pair it with a white blouse and pencil skirt, or wear it over one of your favorite dresses".
We paired a simple white shirt with this fabulous Joseph Ribkoff pencil skirt and black leather jacket. Joseph Ribkoff skirt $138.00 available at One Brilliant. Shari's own shirt and leather jacket. (pictured above)
What is the one item in your closet you cannot live without?
"My black faux leather trim leggings are the one item I feel that I can wear with everything", says Shari. "So I always seem to have them visible in my closet. Getting your closet organized is key. Sort clothes by the length of the sleeves and organize by color. That way, when you are ready to finalize your closet for the new year, you will know exactly where you are lacking, what colors you need more of and what items you need to make your wardrobe ready for the new year," says Shari.
It is always great to find a must-have article to add to your wardrobe for the new year. "I always love a great dress, so when I find one that fits fabulous, I like to add it to my wardrobe," says Shari. "It becomes an essential piece in my wardrobe, to build upon."

"The only way to stay up-to-date with the ever changing fashion industry is to live and breathe it, " says Shari. "Browse magazines, read through blogs, shop local boutiques and try to stay in the know with the latest trends. I love shopping at One Brilliant, I know that the styles are always current and on trend. I add pieces to my wardrobe from them every year for each season."
So get ready to take on 2017 in Style!
