UP­DATE YOUR WARDROBE

ELLE (Canada) - - Special -

1. BUY A SUIT. It’s the one piece you need this Jan­uary. Why? Be­cause it’s like four out­fits in one. Be­cause you can wear it from work to cock­tail hour to black tie. Be­cause Katharine Hep­burn. Be­cause Mar­lene Di­et­rich. Be­cause An­thony Vac­carello for Saint Lau­rent.

2. BREAK FREE FROM THE CAP

SULE WARDROBE. Here’s why you don’t need to whit­tle down your closet to a tight edit of neu­tral-coloured sta­ples: 1. Wear­ing said sta­ples more of­ten will speed up wear and tear. 2. Some clothes—like the “lucky” LBD you were wear­ing when you met your BF—are sar­to­rial mem­o­ries. 3. Marie Kondo-ing your life is so 2016. (Woman can­not live on Acne Stu­dios linen T-shirts alone.) In­stead, adopt the one-in, one-out rule this year. It’s an ap­proach that is mind­ful but not mil­i­tant.

3. GO FOR THE MID­DLE

GROUND. Your re­ply to the ques­tion “Heels or flats?” can re­veal as much about your per­son­al­ity as the Proust Ques­tion­naire. Keep ’em guess­ing with the chunky mid-heel. It’s the per­fect com­pro­mise be­tween sneaks and stilet­tos.
