1. SUMMARY IT
Try to avoid being taken off guard by your mornings, even if you are unable to plan for everything. Just as you would if you were trying to save time by organizing a week's worth of meals on a Sunday, try outfit planning to produce stress-free mornings and outfit regret-free days.
2. FIND FASHIONABLE LADIES TO FOLLOW
Whether they are your sister's best friend's cousin or your preferred Instagram style icon. 2. SEEK OUT (FASHIONABLE) INSPIRATION Find fashionistas whose sense of style you appreciate and use their photos as inspiration to help you organize your outfits (see tip #1). Unsure of where to start?

3. (OVER)DRESS IF IN DOUBT
"If you're ever unsure about how to dress, consider where you're going and who you'll be seeing. Always err on the side of overdressing. If you're worried about seeming overly done-up, bring a casual layer, like a jean or cargo jacket, to ensure your outfit has that carefree, elegant vibe.
4. PUSH YOURSELF TO THE EDGE.
"Trying something new never hurts. The cornerstone of excellent fashion is attempting new things, whether it's a vivid new color that stands out from your regular neutral palette or switching from narrow jeans to a boyfriend design. Who knows what fashions you might fall in love with!
5. EVER ACCESSORIZE
Try to wear at least one piece, such as a stunning necklace, a standout pair of earrings, or a pop-color bag (or all of the above). An unremarkable outfit can be swiftly transformed into something different by adding a powerful statement piece.
6. CREATE A CAPSULE WARDROBE
The not-so-secret weapon of a stylist is a capsule wardrobe. If you have a closet filled with diverse clothing, your morning ritual might be made easier. Invest in classic pieces that will last a lifetime, such as jewelry, a stylish LBD, and a great pair of jeans.
7. TRY A STATEMENT SHOE
"When it comes to shoes, color, print, and style carry a powerful visual punch—and they don't have to be super-high heels, either (flats can make the same statement and your feet will thank you). Even if your ensemble is put together informally, adding a pair of printed flats or a wedge with a pop of color can give it a more professional appearance.
8. OWN AT LEAST ONE PIECE OF CONVERSATIONAL ART.
Sometimes you just need the pure "wow" factor. It doesn't matter if it's a fantastic pair of over-the-knee boots, a vintage dress you stole from your mother's closet, or an exceptional purse, keep something in your arsenal for the days you need to really show up spectacular.
9. Recognize your physical constitution
"What is the first style guideline? Fit first. Understanding your body shape is key in this aspect. Do you like to attract emphasis to your shoulders and consider yourself to be a little pear-shaped person? Create a wardrobe with pieces that emphasize your shape and greatest features.
10. "Age is just a number.
Don't let that number stop you from experimenting with new fashions or wearing something that catches your eye. At 62 years old, do you want to wear a pair of boyfriend jeans? Try it! Trying to enter a business-first closet at the age of 22? "Put a button on!"
