Here's the thing: style is completely subjective. It's also ever changing. Yes there are (so-called) rules and guidelines, do's and don'ts, ins and outs, but style itself is, or should be, a personal, individual thing -- an expression of and extension of the self.

There's a downside to these types of lofty resolutions - they simply don't work. These goals are often drastic and leave little room for compromise.

I used to be one of those people and I do recognize the statistics that show the chances of staying with a resolution are slim. I still believe that setting them, in a specific way, though, can still be very effective.

According to statistics, weight issues reliably rank at the top of all New Year's resolutions. Sadly, of those who want to do better in that department, less than 10 per cent will succeed.
