We live in a world of fast fashion, short lived trends, and "instagramable pieces" that are designed to be one and done. A loud look—feathers! ruffles! prints!—from time to time is fine. But fashion isn't always about making a spectacle. A great outfit is meant to empower and showcase your inner beauty, not compete for the spotlight. Updated classics—like a sweater dress featuring slits or a one shoulder neckline and a fabulous trench in leather—will leave you looking and feeling like a million bucks.

A Little Black Sweater Dress

You can't go wrong with a classic black sweater dress; opt for a version with buttons and slits to give your simple look an edge.

Sleek Black Boots

This simple shoe is super versatile. Choose a pair with a comfortable square heel that gives you a bit of height, but can be worn all day long.

A Trench with a Twist

This style of coat is timeless. Try bold shoulders, interesting hardware, or a sleek material to spice things up.

The Perfect White Shirt

A white button down can be styled with jeans, trousers, leather pants...the options are endless. Go for a relaxed boyfriend fit.
