Five women swear off the too-tight, too-loose, too-young, too-frumpy outfits of the past to start 2011 on the right foot.

The rescue: Pucciarello gives DeBernardis a shorter, more flattering cut, bringing her hair off her face to highlight her cheekbones. Glassman replaces her sweats ("After a certain age, you should not be wearing Barbie pink") with slimming, neutral corduroys and a T-shirt in stand-out citrus green. A leather trench is a grown-up, well-priced staple DeBernardis can wear for years, to the grocery store or out to dinner.
To graduate from sweats:
Corduroys, J.Crew, $80. T-shirt, Lilla P., $58. Trench, Banana Republic Heritage, $398. Earrings, Julie Collection. Bracelets, Bounkit. Belt, LAI. Watch, Tag Heuer. Shoes, Musette.
