Old habits die hard, but a wardrobe facelift never hurt nobody. This summer garb yourself with fresh fashion pieces and take these little style notes to heart—there’s never been a better way to purge messy 2016.
Level up on your little black dress.
It’s 2017, and it’s about time your little black dress dropped a remix version. Set your black bodycon to sleep mode and hit play on noir numbers with stealthy changes that make all the difference: exaggerated bell sleeves, splices of sheer, and old-is-new florals.

Reimagine boyish classics.
Bask in the irony of wearing girlified borrowed-from-the-boys pieces. Leave your predictable style choices to from last year and keep people guessing with a look that’s half dainty, half tomboy. Prime examples: a classic varsity bomber jacket with cheeky patchwork, or a structured button-down done in Valentino-like lace.

Feign fashionable effort on casual days.
Okay, it’s casual Friday, you’re allowed to slob around, right? Wrong. It’s summer and the new year, and your off days should project stylish nonchalance instead of downright laziness. Pretend you put in effort by wearing updated basics, like walking shorts in culotte-like proportions and on-trend details.

Go full on girly.
Be the girl in florals and frills amidst the sea of chicks in sneakers—unapologetically feminine is fashion’s new rebel look, so give your 100 percent before the trend catches on. Start with: a pastel off-shoulder piece decked in springtime florals. Now that’s girly on girly on girly.

Embrace the crazy!
You’ve always wanted to let your little fashion freak go free, but never got the chance to do it—well, if you’re looking for a sign, this is it. Throw fears out the window and welcome the new season like a wrecking ball: wear leather, bare your skin, use stuff toys as clutch bags—as the saying goes, There Are Seasons in Life.
