If you're like most people, you probably want to look your best every day, but life can get in the way. You might be running late or feel like you have nothing in your wardrobe that looks good on you. Fortunately, if you spend a little time curating a stylish wardrobe, you'll always have something fashionable at your fingertips.

Add some classics to your wardrobe that you can mix and match. You might have heard this referred to as a capsule wardrobe. Basically, you want to stock up on classic pieces like T-shirts, blouses or polos, sweaters, a black suit, cardigans and jeans. Then, you can mix and match them quickly when you're getting dressed.

Fit can make a big difference when it comes to looking polished. Sort through your wardrobe and get rid of things that are too big or small. If something doesn't fit right, it won't look right either.

Don't hold onto items that feel shapeless, outdated, or unflattering. You know what we're talking about—the sweater or pair of pants that's always in your closet, but you don't really like wearing. Clear them out to make room for pieces that you truly like wearing. Aim for quality over quantity when it comes to garments.

Pair warm tones with warm or cool tones with cool to look polished. Your outfit should look harmonious and colour choice is a big part of that. If you're wearing a top that has cool colours like blue, green, or purple, pair it with pants that's also cool-toned so they don't clash. Black, white, and grey pieces are neutral so they can work with warm or cool shades.

Identify your body shape and choose clothes that complement you. The idea with any of the body shapes is to create balance and stylish symmetry. For instance, If you have an apple-shaped body, you have a rounded silhouette so belts can really help to define your waist.

Come up with a day-to-day look that you can easily customize. You might not have lots of time to plan your outfit every day, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style! This is where a basic uniform really helps. For instance, you might feel great wearing jeans, a fitted shirt, and a blazer.

Add a belt, watch, or jewellery to make your outfit look put together. You've spent time creating a fashionable outfit, but you can really take it to the next level with some key accent pieces. Wear a nice hat with a colour that really pops or complete your look with an eye-catching belt. Don't forget jewellery!
