Trends change season to season, but you don’t have to buy into all of them to update your look. Instead of hitting “add to cart,” file these styling hacks away to reinvent your wardrobe and take the pieces you already own through 2018. With a switch as simple as the way you drape your sweater (hint: tie it across your chest), you can transform something tired into the fresh new look you love; sometimes, it just requires rewearing it with a fresh set of eyes. Ahead, find this styling tips to offer you a little perspective on the clothes already hanging out in your closet.

It seems like a small thing, but showing off contrasting sleeves under a blazer or sweater has a stylized look that screams fashion girl.
