3 Brands to Freshen Your Closet RN

Not sure about you, but around this time every year I open my closet and think to myself 'I hate every single thing in here'. If January style slump seems like a term that is relatable AF to you as well, read on for 3 female-led brands that will have you feeling like sunshine in no time. 

ACT 1: Bryr Clogs

This not-so-little footwear brand based in San Francisco puts all of my favorites things into their clogs: quality, simplicity, and California cool. Pair them with literally ANYTHING to take your entire outfit to heights you never thought possible. 

find them on instagram @bryrclogs 

TIP: All clogs are made to order so plan on approx. 30 days before you can slip your toes into your new pair.

If you don't mind a bit of an investment piece, Jesse Kamm pants might just save your (wardrobe's) life. Easy silhouettes in the colors of the rainbow make getting yourself dressed and out the door fun again. And if you're wondering about quality, each piece is designed and crafted in California.

If painterly prints and embroidered basics are more your speed, perhaps you'd be interested in Spanish brand, Paloma Wool. Her statement making tees and quirky-cool pullovers will bring a bit of personality to any drab January closet.  And the Frida Kahlo vibes of the current lineup won't hurt either.

There you have it, friends. 3 cool-girl brands to kick that nasty style slump INSTANTLY! I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I have.
