Want an instant update? Go head to toe monochromatic or tonal and you will have an instant modern update to your look. Of course you could pull this off with every inch of gray that you own, but bonus points will be given if you go for it with color, like say, Valentino red or icy blue. This works for both fall and spring dressing. The key here is to just go for it. Ideally, you want the tones to work together and perhaps have the same undertones, but it is not absolutely necessary to pull off a fierce look. Just go for it - life is short!

A Masculine Feminine Mashup
Throw on a pair of sneaks with your girliest frock for an instant update. Dresses with volume, color, ruffles, layers, basically anything ultra-feminine works well offset with this street style accessory. Plus, the comfort level is a built in bonus for this current styling trend.

Heavy and Delicate Jewels
Similarly, you can channel your inner Iris Apfel and throw on nearly every necklace you have. Don't discriminate between the heavy and delicate and be sure to throw on a few bracelets for good measure. Dip your toe in this maximalists look by pairing with a great white tee and jeans or a structured all black look.

Toss That Pony
If you are always seen with a top knot (guilty as charged), take it low at the nape of your neck or into a messy ball to one side. Change is good, and you'll give your hair and scalp a break from being tied up in the same spot.
