Looking good has little to do with the size and scope of your wardrobe. In fact, some of the most stylish people (the late Audrey Hepburn, for example) mixed and matched simple, classic pieces to create fashionable looks. So instead of always reaching for items that are “in,” fill your closet with classics like these.
A great blazer
More versatile than a jacket and more formal than a sweater, a great blazer can take you from the office to grocery store to soccer practice. Pair it with jeans for a look that's casual and comfortable. Match it with dress pants or a little black dress for those moments you have to be boardroom ready. Dark blazers always seem more formal than bright blazers, which have a more casual vibe.
