Navigating the ins and outs of style can be tricky, but with these simple stylist-recommend tips, you’ll be a certified fashionista in no time.

  1. Find out if a pair of jeans fits without a trip to the dressing room

Ready for a mind-blowing fashion hack? All you need to do to determine whether or not a pair of jeans will fit is to wrap the waist around your neck — if the ends meet without overlapping (or stretching), they’ll fit your waist.

“The neck trick is one I was skeptical about, but it really works!” — Lauren Edelstein.

  1. Test the waters of a bright color via lipstick or accessories first

Anyone can wear patterns and bright colors — but if you’re afraid of them, you can wear them as an accessory before you invest in a clothing item: Instead of trying on a bright citron-colored blouse, you can go for a cuff or bracelet, or even a lipstick.

  1. Maximize your shoe collection

Want a pair of shoes you can wear all year round, no matterm the occasion? A pair of pointed-toe black pumps are essential, they’re seasonless, crazy flattering, and you can where them with absolutely anything.

  1. Pop a belt on for a put-together look

Adding a textured, embellished, or a great colored belt is the fastest way to pull together the most basic pieces or quickly elevate a casual outfit.

  1. The key to making online shopping work for you: a tape measure

You need to know your measurements — not just your size. “I’m a big fan of online shopping,” says Nazarudin. “But I find that sizes vary across brands and even cuts, so memorize your shoulder, bust, waist, hip, and inseam measurements.”

  1. When trying prints, use the rule of 2

If you’re stressed about pairing patterns, stick by Yraola’s guideline: “Two is the max amount of prints or brights to mismatch, like stripes with florals or lavenders with greys,” she says. “Don’t add a third.”

  1. Add accessories to instantly look polished

You can get away with wearing a pair of nice jeans and a T-shirt nearly anywhere (yep, even work!) if you amp up to the look with accessories. Try throwing on a statement necklace, an intricate bracelet, or even some standout earrings.
