HACK #1: ROLL UP YOUR TROUSER HEMS
This has to be the quickest, easiest hack out there – to give your jeans a fashion-week update, simply roll up the hem. Don’t whip out the ruler for the perfect crease; just roll ‘em up quickly and casually for a lived-in look. This has the added benefit of exposing the slimmest part of the leg and looks great with any kind of shoe.

HACK #2: MAXIMISE YOUR JACKET
Don’t just throw on a jacket as you head out the door because the office AC is set on permafrost – with a few easy tweaks your outerwear can become the style star. Bunch up the sleeves, tie it with a belt, or turn up the collar for instant savvy.

HACK #3: INVEST IN A BLACK BODYSUIT
Make a black bodysuit your new BFF and wear it under an open white shirt or blazer, with jeans or a skirt, or under a shirt you feel is too sheer. A true wardrobe hero for all seasons and a quick way to pull an outfit together.

HACK #4: GO BIG ON ACCESSORIES
If you can’t be bothered with thinking up a new outfit, pull on your trusty jeans and white button-down and go big with your accessories – statement earrings, embellished shoes, hair slides or a great belt will all bring your look together.
