1. Start with polished basics.
Closet staples like white button-down blouses, trousers, and pencil skirts can be remixed and reworn many times. They serve as a blank canvas for unconventional sartorial picks. For example, a velvet blazer—something you don't see every day—will look seamless with an LBD.

2. Do not take trends seriously.
Trends are trends—they come fast and and fade away just as swiftly. If you're curious to try on a trend, pick one that closely relates to the clothes you currently own.

3. Stock up on neutrals.
When you have a good inventory of clothing in palettes of beige, grey, black, navy, and white, it will be easy to mix and match outfits. If you're afraid that your wardrobe will be boring, pick pieces with interesting tailoring.

4. Wear a signature shoe.
Similar to the concept of wardrobe basics, owning pairs in timeless styles will deliver extra fashion mileage. Although we dream of an Imeldific shoe collection, women can actually live with just five styles: black pumps, heeled sandals, flat sandals, white sneakers, and ballet flats.

5. Add a menswear element to your outfit.
Toughen up your basic look by playing around with menswear items like oversized coats, tweed trousers, and oxford shoes. The androgynous volume and cut of these pieces spice up your wardrobe while keeping your timeless style intact.
