Creating a wardrobe that looks great and functions for every day?becomes a lot easier once you’ve cemented your signature style. Here are six easy steps to discovering what works for you.

Wear classics

Certain garments have stood the test?of time – a well-cut white shirt, a single- breasted blazer – so invest in key pieces?that suit your shape, and build your wardrobe around them.

Don’t be a slave to trends

Be aware of what’s walking down the runway, but don’t be driven by it. Stick to shapes and styles that work for?you, then embrace seasonal trends?through accessories.

Vary your theme

A signature?look can easily?be freshened up by incorporating different fabrics and textures into your outfit. Adding tonal layers will add a point of difference and prevent your look becoming stale.

Find a favourite item

Whether it’s oversized sunglasses, – la Anna Wintour, or skinny pants like Emmanuelle Alt wears, find the item that works best for you and make it a cornerstone of your wardrobe.

Pick a colour

Choose clothes in shades that?will enhance your complexion. These should form the bedrock of your wardrobe, and can be complemented with other flattering accent colours.
