Timeless Fashion Items that Never Go Out of Style
Fast fashion has become a key characteristic of the fashion industry we know today, stimulating a short clothing lifecycle and a short lived customer-garment relationship. It can be very challenging to find something invest-worthy in a load of new arrivals, something that you can wear over and over again without it getting out of fashion.
This is why we have made a list for all you fashionistas of classic items that will stand the test of time and in which you can safely invest in to make them a lasting part of your wardrobe. Trends change every season, but there are certain wardrobe items that every woman needs. So, if you happen to declutter your closet, make sure you run through our list first and don’t get rid of any of these timeless pieces.
The trench coat
Chic and casual, modest and immodest, office and evening style. The trench coat has it all. This classic item has never intended to become a worldwide style icon. Originally worn by British soldiers during World War I as a powerful weapon against rain drops, designed by Thomas Burberry, this piece of clothing has become a signature look of Burberry and a permanent resident of many celebrities’ closets. Celebs like Victoria Beckham, Rihanna and Miranda Kerr have been spotted with the trench coat.
While the trenchcoat is recognisable for its sleek and chic design, it comes with many functional features. It keeps you warm and protects you from the rain and wind, allowing ease of movement.
Aside from its functionality, they look good on pretty much everyone and are great to combine. The different looks you can achieve with a single trench coat are endless. Throw a trench over a t-shirt and jeans or a cute dress. Wear it open or buttoned up. Match them with sneakers or heels. It literally goes with just about everything in your closet.
A white tee
It might sounds dramatic, but honestly, every woman needs a good, plain white t-shirt in their life. Of all classics, there’s no doubt that this is the most simple and fresh item. Due to its versatility it never goes out of style. This piece can be worn for every occasion and has many styling options. Whether layered under a lace top, tucked into a shirt, combined with a blazer, or even with sweatpants while working out, under and over clothes as well as on their own with a pair of jeans or a skirt, this indispensable piece of clothing is compatible with literally anything. Have it fitted or loose and flowy, it’s up to you. You’ll be surprised how much wear you get out of this simple item.
Feminine, sexy, classic and black. You probably expected this one coming. Black shoes are a wardrobe must have for every woman. You can never go wrong with a classic pair of black heels and there’s no limit to what you can wear this essential with. These shoes will take you from the office and dinner to a night out. They are the safe solution when you want to go for a classy and elegant look. You have a chance of looking a bit dull with these black heels, though. Pick a pair with an interesting detail like an ankle strap, tie, flower or diamonds to perk it up a little. Black heels are definitely a worthy investment and they will serve you for a decade.
No need to mention them, but this essential is surely the hardest worker in your wardrobe. No matter what new trends are introduced on the runway, jeans will never, ever go out of style. Denim trousers are for all seasons. They can take you from work to a casual party, and from casual daytime to a dressier evening with a simple swap of accessories and a pair of heels. A pair of jeans that fit flawlessly is your best friend for life. The perfect pair, however, is hard to find. Once you find the perfect fit, buy a couple of them, maybe even in different washes. That way you will have plenty of wear out of them before you have to go shopping for jeans again.
Another wardrobe essential. The blazer is an extremely versatile garment. The outfit possibilities of a blazer are endless. It is considered a suitable piece for any situation, both formal and informal occasions. It’s an easy way to make your outfit look proper. If you get a neutral color, you can pair it with all of the items you already own. It can be worn with a wide variety of other clothes: over a blouse, with a pair of jeans, you name it! Blazers come in a wide range of styles. You can achieve an elegant look with matching trousers and heels, go for a casual style with jeans and sneakers, get a boyish vibe with baggy jeans, and much more. Plus, a blazer looks great on all body types. Find a tailored one that accentuates your waist. You don’t want to look like Snow White’s dwarf Dopey, drowning in your clothes. A blazer is one of the higher priced must haves, but it’s an investment you’ll be happy you made.
A little black dress
Well, you can never have too much black in your wardrobe. A nice little black dress is always useful. The little black dress is a classic for a reason. It comes in many styles, from the fitted one to the flowy one, and the plain one to the embellished one. You can keep it toned down or make it more lively with some accessories. And, when you wear it for the second time, nobody immediately notices it’s not new.
