Start a new style slate with a salute to simplicity, says Annmarie O'Connor.
With the party season behind us and a new year in tow, there's no better time to cleanse the sartorial palette.
Adopting the minimalist mantra of clean lines, neutral hues and a utility bias may appear basic but their combined magic makes for something basically amazing.
Think military-inspired pieces like boiler suits, cargo pants and cleat-soled shoes with tie-waists toggles and naval buttons creating a uniform you'll want to wear every day.
