The Year Of You: 10 Simple Ways To Feel Good

Most of us head into the new year with a tall order of resolutions that usually fizzle by the time spring is in bloom.  While setting goals for the new year is admirable, we tend to focus on the things we don’t like about ourselves, striving for unattainable results—instead of boosting self-confidence we’re induced with self doubt

It’s 2018, time to celebrate you! This year, take time to focus on the things that contribute to your well-being, making self-care a priority. And we’re not just talking about treating yourself to a facial without guilt, self-care is about building the confidence that can make you feel better in different areas in your life.  Read on for easy ways that will encourage you to feel good (and look good) this year

1. Show Off Your Assets

There is nothing we love and promote more here at Citi Trends than loving your body and showing off what you’ve got! Give them the cold shoulder flattering neckline; Play up your shape and curve fierce with a bodycon dress; or slip into a maxi skirt with a slit that lets your legs peek out in all the right places.

2. Feelin’ The Beat

Give your mind and body an endorphins high and dance like nobody’s watching. Not only is working up a sweat to music physically rewarding but you have fun and feel invigorated. So…twerk it, throw in some Cha Cha Cha moves, or moonwalk—don’t be shy and embrace what your body can do!

3. Pep It Up Playlist

Sing in the shower, your car, in a karaoke bar,  on or off-key, who cares! Turn on your favorite tunes and belt out what you’ve been holding in all day—it will elevate your mood in no time.

4. Walk it Out

Strutting your stuff is not a runway-exclusive. Whether your wearing flats or heels, walking to work or on your way to date night feel hot-to-trot. Tip: Stand up straight and slightly stick out your chest, put one foot right in front of the other, loosen up your hips and let them naturally sway from side to side. Now WERK it!

5. Forget The Splish Splash, Take a Relaxing Bath

Once a week, run a bath, add a foaming bath gel or toss in a bath bomb, light your favorite scented candles, turn off the lights, and immerse yourself in a warm tub. The calming atmosphere is a great way to de-stress, soothe achy muscles and leads to healthy, glowing skin.

6. Rock A Flirty Fragrance

Hot on the scent for a perfume that’s both playful and glam? Finish off your look with an irresistible signature scent, making you feel (and smell) good throughout the day.

7. Nailed It

Give yourself an at-home manicure with a fun polish color or printed acrylic set  you regularly wouldn’t wear and flaunt it.

8. Girls Night In/Out

there’s nothing like being in the moment, surrounded by your girls! Plan for a classic netflix and potluck-style veg out session or glam it up for a night out.

9. Selfie Saturdays

Get in front of a mirror or phone and start smizing. Really take a minute to acknowledge your looks and appreciate your favorite part of your face. 6 Tips For The Perfect Selfie

10. Stop Comparing Yourself To Others!

Reflect on your accomplishments and celebrate all that is YOU.

10 Must-Have Layering Pieces Of The Season

Winter fashion is all about your layering game. No longer are the days where dressing for winter equals cocooning yourself in puffy gear, overwhelmed by knit accessories. Layering presents tons of opportunities to stay comfortable while keeping your style in check.
And While you’re stocking up on sweaters, jackets and basics for the cool-weather months ahead keep an eye out for those staple pieces that mix and match for a variety of looks that can be changed up, whatever the weather.

We’ve rounded up our top 10 layering pieces that’ll upgrade your look this season, and then some!

Ladies-Oversized-Denim-Jacket-Faux-Fur-Collar

Oversized Denim Jacket: We’re loving this slightly slouchy, fresh update on a classic denim jacket. The longline yet lightweight layer is the perfect topper for chunky knits, figure-hugging skirt sets—well, almost anything, really, even when worn with jeans for a denim-on-denim look.

Bonus: features a removable faux fur collar for even more versatility! 

Ladies-Faux-Fur-Puffer-Vest Ladies-Faux-Fur-Puffer-Vest-Crop Ladies-Blue-Faux-Fur-Vest Ladies-Blue-Faux-Fur-Hooded-Vest

Faux Fur Vest: This fashion-meets-function factor is here to elevate your look, and keep you warm at the same time. We’re having fun with all the faux fur details hitting up this season—pairing a burgundy puffer vest with a distressed denim button-up and adding some volume to a high-waist midi skirt with a hooded vest. Bonus: It’s reversible! Shaggy on one side, plush on the other.  

Ladies-Tan-Distressed-Cardigan Ladies-Black-Cardigan-Faux-Fur-Collar

Knit Cardigan: Cozy and chic, this silhouette streamlines your look without that bulky feeling. Instead of a jacket, enhance the bold motif of winter florals with a distressed long-length cardigan or glam it up with a faux fur collar. Bonus: Removable faux fur collar for even more versatility!

Ladies-Blush-Faux-Leather-Moto-Jacket Ladies-Burgundy-Faux-Leather-Bomber-Jacket

Faux Leather Jacket: Edgy yet sophisticated, add instant impact to your look by simply topping it off with a statement moto jacket or the ever-popular bomber jacket.

Ladies-Black-Sweater-Dress Ladies-Burgundy-Sweater-Dress

Midi-Length Sweater Dress: Turn up the fierce factor with a figure-hugging bodycon that’s just as comfy as it is sleek. Opt for a higher neckline to balance out oversized layering options such as a cropped hoodie or moto jacket.

White Bomber Jacket: Break out your winter whites! The no-fail fashion staple will add an element of instant cool to any look. Rock subtle quilted moto detail, vintage inspired patches (or both!) for an of-the-moment retro feel.

Anorak Jacket: We love the utility vibe of an anorak jacket. Less bulky than traditional jackets, this laid-back layer adds a  rugged feel and can be worn with just about anything underneath!

Long-Sleeve Hooded T-Shirt:  The base layer you need in your wardrobe this season. Let the hood hang out of  your jacket for a touch of effortless cool.

Mixed Media Jacket: Upgrade your jacket situation with this must-have trend—combines multiple materials and textures, making it versatile enough to be dressed up or down.

Plaid Button-Up: Get in check! Plaid is a go-to cold-weather print, perfect for the holiday season. Try layering under a solid yet sleek bomber jacket in a darker shade with polished jeans and cool kicks for a fresh combo.
