As exciting as it might be to think that come January 1, your closet will be color-coordinated, you’ll wake up at 6 a.m. every day to do Pilates, and your taxes will be as good as filed, that’s not exactly how resolutions work. They’re hard and take some time to see the final payoff. But not all changes have to require heavy lifting. In order to bring you more immediate and noticeable results when it comes to being stylish next year, we’ve outlined nine very doable steps as seen on style stars you already know and love.

Check out the simple but high effective tips below.
Expand your definition of “matching”
Does Caroline Issa's plaid jacket go with a quirky paisley-like print? Sure, why not? Especially in a perfectly coordinated color palette.
Use color to work magic
Margaret Zhang's elongating trick simply consists of pairing shoes and pants in the same exact color. Et voilà! Instantly longer legs.
Make more use of your “fancy” clothes
Don't wear items the way they're intended
Establish your foolproof silhouette
Make a commitment to the classics
Don't wear a statement outfit; wear an outfit with a statement
Get out of your skinny-jean rut
It should go without saying by now, but there are so many other denim options out there instead of skinny jeans. Don't toss away the ones you love, but also don't be afraid to embrace a new silhouette—Julia Sarr-Jamois's relaxed-fit pairs, for instance.
Be alluring in the least expected way
A low-cut neckline and a micro hem are just a couple ways to try out a racier trend. But who's to say a little flash of side-thigh, as demonstrated by Veronika Heilbrunner, is not as flirty?
