A big part of good style is finding what works for you and sticking with it. Those items and outfits that suit you—they make you look great and thus you feel great when wearing them. Which is why it's easy to fall into a rut. That's not to say there aren't some upsides to developing a personal uniform. But if you're feeling like your style's become a bit stale, here are three ways to switch things up and inject some freshness into your wardrobe (without going overboard). Guaranteed to update your everyday looks and give you a boost of confidence too.
This is a simple twist that always works for those dapper European gentlemen. Dashing Brits and elegant Italians will dress in head-to-toe navy or black. Or perhaps pull on layers in various shades of grey or tan. There's no way to do it wrong and the finished outfit looks considered and cool.

If you're always pulling on a pair of sneakers, consider swapping them for a pair of boots. They could be of the rugged, lug-soled variety or something with a slimmer profile and rock 'n roll edge like these suede jodhpur boots. You can sport them in pretty much any casual situation where you'd typically wear your sneakers and they look a whole lot more grown up.
