Evaluate your style
Evaluate your present style. Decide what’s working (your hair? your career clothes?) and what has room for improvement (your makeup? your casual wardrobe?).
Pick someone whose looks you love and see what style lessons you can learn from them. For example, crisp white tees may be the foundation of a chic yet unfussy look.
Develop a trademark
Develop a trademark. It could be anything from signature stilettos (think Carrie Bradshaw) to interesting pins to hair ornaments.
Update your hairstyle
Update your hairstyle. It’s an easy way to make a dramatic change--and to make sure your look isn’t stuck in a time warp.
Accessorize. A scarf instantly makes an outfit look smart--especially if it’s tied correctly in a classic style, like an ascot.
Get new frames
If you wear glasses, update your look with new frames that flatter. If not, invest in a pair of good sunglasses that suit the shape of your face.
Get an eyebrow shaping
Go for a professional eyebrow shaping. It’s an inexpensive way to instantly look more polished.
Consider a color change
Consider changing your hair color. A good colorist can tell you what best complements your complexion.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with several styles until you find one that suits you.
