Once you've picked out your ideal outfit, take it up a notch by finishing it off with a belt. It can add a waist to an oversize coat or help keep your layers in place.  

4. Give the classics a changeup.

Take a tried-and-true staple like overalls, and give it a new spin. Play with new shapes, fabrics, and prints, and an old silhouette will feel new again.

5. Make the most of texture.

Instead of leaving your coat entirely open, button the top half and let a hint of your look peek through.

Suits are the new matching sets! Instead of sticking to black or gray two-pieces, embrace the colors and prints of the season. Just keep your accessories simple, and you're good to go. 

12. Learn to layer like a pro.

The key to successful layering is proportion. Make sure longer layers go underneath, allowing them to peek out. 

13. Swap your signature black for all-white instead.

While there will alway be a place for black, try switching things up by wearing head-to-toe white.
