It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of relying on the same outfits on a weekly basis: the work attire, the off-duty looks, and the one suit that comes out for every occasion. With the nature of fast fashion and the fickle tastes of a consumerist society, trends come and go in rapid succession, which results in clothes being tossed aside after a few wears and a wardrobe lacking in decent, long-lasting staples.

Knowing your own style and what suits you is all well and good, but it can also mean you have become stuck in a rut. However, with just a few simple tricks you can reinvent your style while still acknowledging that modus operandi that’s carried you through the last few years. Keep reading to find out how.

1. Opt for versatile tailoring

 

Are you greeted by stale navy and black suits or that dated statement two-piece you bought a couple years back when you open your wardrobe? If the answer is yes, it’s time to reconsider your tailored aesthetic. Invest in a versatile suit that can be stripped back for smart-casual by pairing with a knit or crew neck or dressed up for the office – crisp white shirt – or a formal occasion (think waistcoat and monk-strap shoes). A subtle print pattern captures that interest that works across different settings while the modern fit keeps things appropriately sleek and sophisticated.

 


2. Refresh your staples

 

It’s a mistake everyone regularly repeats, recycling the same coats, jumpers, shirts et al on a regular basis, and let’s be honest: those basic pieces can get boring. There comes a time when you’ve got to take a hard look at your tried and trusted and know when their time has passed. Now’s the time to break out a new, lightweight jacket (khaki is a strong colour option that works with myriad outfits); update those classic crewnecks; swap out jeans for chinos; and breathe new life into your shirts.


3. Add a splaSh of colour

 

You don’t need to play it safe when it comes to your mainstays and dressed-down essentials. Avoid imbuing your new wardrobe with too many greys, blacks and whites and embrace a hint of colour – especially as the spring/summer season draws near. Soft, tonal blues and pinks and rich bordeauxs and greens will hit all the right notes without losing appeal as the season continues. Keep your bottom layers muted – think indigo and dark denim – and allow the colours to dictate your top layers.
