Blogger and lifestyle influencer Caroline Joy Rector of Un-Fancy.com says to create a simple fashion experience each quarter, choose a few core items and accessorize according to need:

Unfancy was born in March 2014, out of a desire to simplify my life. It’s a mash up of two of my favorite things: personal style + minimalism.
