New Year, new you: what changes will the influencers be making?

High hopes for 2015? The key to avoid disappointment, or catastrophic failure, with the New Year’s resolution, is to be realistic writes The Times' Fran Mullin. What better way to temper our expectations than to observe, and quietly judge, the intentions of the people who dictate the future of our wardrobe, cosmetics and culture.

A secular practice, and personal pursuit, the resolution is a measure of self-discipline and resolve – much needed after the festive indulgences. From booze abstention to scalp absolution, there’s a vocationally apt, and sometimes personal, suggestion to suit all those with a view to improvement.

Whether starting or quitting, giving or receiving, best of luck for the coming year - may it be a memorable one.
