1. Pair Navy with Black

Forget what you’ve heard: You can (and should) wear black and navy together. The combination is an unexpected twist…and is relatively low lift since you probably already own a lot of both colors.

2. Let Your Coat Do All the Talking

A statement coat allows you to put in almost no effort without looking sloppy or boring. Wearing sweats under there? We won’t tell.

3. Swap Your Work Shirt for a Thin Turtleneck

If your office is on the conservative side, stick to neutral-hued solids or classic stripes. However, if you have a bit more wiggle room, try a funky tie-dye tee or a virtual print turtleneck that lets your personality shine while still looking professional.

4. PAIR AN OVERSIZE SWEATER WITH SLIM-FIT BOOTS

When it comes to chunky knits, we say the bigger the better. Over-the-knee boots that fit like tights are the perfect way to balance out such a slouchy top.

5. Roll Your Hems Rather Than Tuck Them

Unless you’re rocking true skinny jeans, it can prove mighty difficult to comfortably tuck the hem of your pants into a pair of boots. So just skip that step altogether. Instead, roll the hems of your pants so that they hit just a quarter of an inch below the top of your boots for a much easier final result.

6. Match Your Coat to Your Shoes

Your coat and shoes don’t have to be red, but wearing both pieces in the same shade pulls your whole outfit together with minimal effort. This trick also works with trendy Cookie Monster blue, cool mint green or even delicate rose pink.

7. Pin a Brooch to Your Coat

It’s jewelry! For your clothes! (It might make a tiny hole in the fabric, so you’ve gotta be willing to commit to this one.)

8. Layer a Necklace Over Your Turtleneck

This may feel like an unconventional move, but a statement necklace worn with a chunky turtleneck can actually help break up all that fabric and prevent a weird uni-boob situation. While you can jump right in with colorful rhinestones or bold metallics, we also love the idea of a more subtle pairing, like an oatmeal knit and pearl lariat.

9. Sport the No. 1 Boot of 2020 Thus Far

12. Dress Up a Super Casual Ensemble with SLICK LACE-UP BOOTS

Boyfriend jeans and an oversize sweater don’t look particularly polished, but add high-heeled booties with a lace-up detail and suddenly we’ve got a horse of a different color.

14. BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN COMFY AND SEXY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

Yes, we like to ramp up the sex appeal on V-Day, but that doesn’t mean we relish the idea of squeezing into a skin-tight dress or struggling with sticky boobs in a backless top. This year, we’re embracing the idea that cozy can also be sexy with sumptuous fabrics like cashmere and silk that feel just as good as they look.

17. or Try a different vibrant shade

Brilliant blue gloves, scarves and bags pop just as well as white against the typical dark winter hues and are less likely to require a cleaning after every wear.

18. Belt an Oversize Coat

This is one of the easiest ways to shake up your winter wear without spending a dime (or more than 60 seconds of your precious morning) and an excellent way to return some semblance of shape to your body under that chunky wool topper.

19. TIE A FAUX-FUR STOLE AROUND YOUR NECK

Faux-fur scarves are often treated as more of an accent piece to be artfully draped over your shoulders (or just one shoulder, if you’re feeling fancy), but let’s not forget these furry accessories are also super warm. Wrap your fuzzy stole around your neck just as you would a regular wool scarf and you’ll learn to handle a 25°F forecast with grace (we hope).

20. Swap the laces on your boots

Switch the plain black, gray or beige laces your winter boots came with for a fun, contrasting hue, like cherry red or bright lilac, to give your old standbys a minimal tune-up.

21. Winterize a Silky Maxi Skirt

Maxis typically scream summer, but not when worn underneath an oversize turtleneck in the same color.

22. Pair an Old Favorite with a New One

While the rest of the world moved on to boyfriend, mom and cropped wide-leg jeans, you never really stopped loving your classic dark-wash skinnies. Update them with one of 2020’s biggest shoe trends, the combat boot, and a few other classics (hello, Knives Out–inspired knits and plaid overcoats) for a look that perfectly melds current styles with those we kind of wish would make a comeback already.

23. Give the Shacket a Whirl

Let us introduce you to the shacket. Half shirt, half jacket, this cozy topper is perfect for those weirdly warm springlike days that pop up in the middle of February. Offset the lumberjack vibes of a plaid version with crisp white booties, dark-wash skinnies and a classically femme handbag.

24. WEAR DENIM THAT ISN’T JEANS

It’s so easy to reach for your favorite skinnies day after day, but if you’re anything like us, you’re definitely bored of them. Try a different denim piece, like a wrap dress or jumpsuit, that’s just as easy to wear but doesn’t feel quite so repetitive.

Shop similar styles: Gap coat ($148; $100); Christian Wijnants dress ($455); Pretty Little Thing boots ($90)

25. Go Bold and Monochromatic

29. Bonus: Eschew Your Scarf for an Extra Large Turtleneck

Give your dearly loved (and probably super dirty) scarf a break and unroll a chunky knit to keep your neck warm in its place. Bonus points if you match it to your bag too.

Shop similar styles: MICHAEL Michael Kors sweater ($155; $64); Banana Republic coat ($160); See by Chloé bag ($425; $298); Gestuz pants ($160); Steve Madden boots ($110)
