2. Clean Out Your Closet
After you hone in on the looks you like most, make a list of your preferences to help define your style succinctly (for example, "ladylike luxe" or "laid-back hippie chic"). Now comes the hard part: sticking to this defined style. Edit out pieces that don't fit the criteria. Anything borderline gets the cut, including pieces you only feel brave enough to wear once in a while. Why so harsh? Because style icons know what works for them and they stick to their formula no matter what.
