Classic, athletic, comfortable style: The 1 item you need to complete your look

As we look to add items into our recently edited wardrobes (after the new year cleanse), it's easy to go overboard and make it a mess all over again. There are so many cute trends to try, but sometimes it's really about owning your personal style.

Instead of shopping like crazy, add just one superstar item that'll transform your entire look.

Below are four items you need in your closet, stat, to give your wardrobe a revamp at the right price!

If your style is ... classic elegance.

Revamp your look with ... a statement belt.

Lulus.com

The statement belt has been having a moment! If you’re known for gravitating toward a classic style and resort to feminine dresses for just about every occasion, revamp your wardrobe by slipping a belt over your evening or everyday dress.

Lulus.com offers fabulous statement belts that are so affordable, you can even switch up your belt from day to night! A proper statement belt creates an instant flattering and body-hugging silhouette — where were those hips before?

Light Grey Shift dress, $42, Lulus.com; Southern Drawl Black Tassel Belt, $11, Lulus.com; Rupees on Reserve Gold Coin Belt, $27, Lulus.com

If your style is ... comfortable chic.

Revamp your look with ... a colorful trench coat.

Eloquii.com

Moms get it: When you’re running around doing errands with a potential plan in the evening, it’s easy to resort to a basic black-on-black outfit. I know it’s my personal fashion staple when I can’t find anything to wear.

Take your style game up a notch with a bold trench coat for winter-to-spring transition. I love Eloquii’s Vin Rouge trench coat; It's ideal for women of every shape and size (they go up to Size 24). Picking bold outerwear like this will flatter your shape (with its gently flared peplum and waist-cinching tie belt) while showing off your good taste. The best part: You won’t compromise your comfort factor, while still appearing chic and polished.

Peplum Trench Coat, $89.99, Eloquii.com

If your style is ... athletic.

Revamp your look with ... statement prints.

OldNavy.com

If you would describe yourself as an athleisure addict (Who doesn’t feel most comfortable running around in workout clothes all day?), it’s easy to resort to buying workout gear in all black. I, too, like to “hide” in workout gear.

Revamp your gym attire by embracing a bold print that pops. Old Navy recently released their active wear line this past year with tons of styles and prints to choose from at amazing price points!

Keep your accessories simple with Lokai bracelets and try a high-top sneaker, such as the Nike Dunk Sky-Hi women’s shoes from Six02.com.

Nylon Running Jacket, $26, OldNavy.com; Go-Dry Racerback Tank, $11.50, OldNavy.com; Mesh-Panel Compression Leggings, $32.94, OldNavy.com, Lokai bracelets, $18, MyLokai.com; Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakers, $124.99, Six02.com

If your style is ... world-traveler cool.

Revamp your look with ... a moto jacket.

CottonOn.com

Let’s face it: it’s hard to look put together when traveling. I’m a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston’s sleek style and try to emulate her look when on the road as much as possible!

A great way to revamp a comfy travel look is to add a layering piece in the form of a faux-leather moto jacket. I live in mine ... maybe too much! Add a colorful wrap scarf (loving the Anthropologie pieces) and comfortable booties for added effect.

Leighton Biker Jacket, $59.95, CottonOn.com; Low Rise Skinny Jeans, $85, DSTLDjeans.com; Darjeeling Infinity Scarf, $49.50, Anthropologie.com

If your style is ... fashion-forward.

Revamp your look with ... a statement necklace.

BaubleBar.com

The simplest way to take a normal dress, jumpsuit or plain blouse to the next level, is to add a bright statement necklace. BaubleBar offers a ton of fabulous, reasonably priced statement necklaces in a variety of hues and dimensions. I also am loving the jewels from Lesli Dale and Sinners & Saints

A few tips: When wearing one color (i.e. navy blue), pick a statement necklace in similar color shades to really bring out your outfit.

Mosaic Collar, $68, BaubleBar.com
