Star style

1. Neckline focus
One of the first steps to building a timeless wardrobe is to choose clothes that look great on you; flattering necklines are key because they bring attention to your face and d├ęcolletage.

2. Monochromatic look
Why do so many fashion industry types wear head-to-toe black? Because monochromatic looks are universally flattering. You don't necessarily have to wear black to get the chic effect, although darker colors are the most slimming. Go monochromatic from the neck down" for maximum flattery.

3. Simple, elegant
Simple is simply more… just don't over do it.

4. Movement in clothes
Layered looks are more than just about covering up. Instead, three-piece dressing (tank/jacket/pant, tank/skirt/shawl, etc.) is all about creating movement in clothing, an essential component of timeless style.

5. Modern comfort
Stop worrying about what you used to look like.
Dressing for the woman you are today may mean cleaning out your closet and re-building your wardrobe from almost-scratch. Keep what fits you today, what's in good condition.

6. Break the rules
It's all about style, not size, age or economic status. He points to pieces like basic black which, with a switch of shoes and accessories -- say, Chanel sneakers for daytime or slingbacks and pearls for evening -- can fit into any crowd.

7. Flattering sillhouettes
Finding the right bottoms are the most difficult. Once you get it, everything falls into place.

8. No-fail chic accents
The building blocks of a timeless wardrobe may be flattering basics, but it's the extras that will polish your total look.

9. Trendy accessories
Just because you are trying to build a timeless wardrobe that withstands the fads, it doesn't mean you can't try out new trends. The key is to put your money into trendy accessories.
