If you haven't heard it, Platten's music is anthemic, upbeat, and happy. Her new album makes you want to get up and go: go the gym, go dancing, go out and make a change in your life or the world. The infectious melodies and energetic tempos are paired with inspiring and optimistic lyrics. The combination makes for great confidence-building music. It's the perfect soundtrack to your new year's resolutions!

The best time to listen to this album: When you need to get happy and motivated in a hurry.

Here are three outfits inspired by songs on the album "Wildfire" by Rachel Platten:

"Angels In Chelsea"

This song is about seeing the good in the world and being hopeful for the future. It reminds you that there are reasons to be optimistic, even when things might seem bleak. Platten asserts that you can be a force of change in your environment.

The white flowy dress couldn't be more angelic, so it's a perfect match for this song. In addition, the sleeves make it wearable in winter. Add a faux fur vest, tall brown boots, and some delicate jewelry to complete this free-spirited look. 

"Lone Ranger"

This is my favorite song on the album. It's about being confident and brave: Sometimes life is tough and you need to be tougher. The song's lyrics, combined with a high tempo and strong acoustic guitar, will get you charged up and excited to face life's obstacles.

For this look, start with a simple long sleeve crop top and a maxi skirt. From there, add edgy pieces for contrast. Stand tall in some heeled booties, and sport a leather motorcycle jacket that exudes toughness. Finish the outfit with silver hoop earrings and a confident red lip.

"Better Place"

This song is about a person who brings you positivity and good vibes. As such, it's hard to feel bad about anything while listening to this track. The calming melody makes you feel warm inside. It fills you up with wonderful feelings and makes the world outside look beautiful.

This outfit is great for a walk in the park, where you can appreciate nature and soak up some sunlight. Pair leggings with a long-sleeve shirt for comfort, then wrap yourself up in an open-front cardigan and a blanket scarf for warmth. Gold bracelets add shine to the outfit, while practical sneakers finish the look.

"Wildfire" by Rachel Platten is available now. Listen to it on Spotify here.
