Take a page from the less-is-more playbook and choose a few fabulous outfits to wear again and again. It will make your life simpler when you're busy. It will make you look great more often (unless you have a unfailing preternatural knack for outfit composition). It will make you more like my Norwegian grandmother. It will make you memorable. And it will give you permission to wear that amazing red velvet dress more often.

(1) There's absolutely nothing wrong with pairing a gold necklace with silver earrings.
(2) Wear all the jewelry you own at once.
(3) Strap up slightly oversized dresses with multiple belts or swaths of fabric wrapped around your torso.
(4) Excessive elegance of dress should be offset by humble footwear.
