Wardrobe Classics That Never Go Out Of Style
As a fashion designer and style blogger I always try to keep on top of trends, but this does not mean I incorporate every trend into my designs or my own style. When I was younger, I definitely tried more trendy items and even wore pieces that may have not been flattering just for the sake of it being the hot trend of the moment. Obviously as I have gotten older, I still pay attention to trends but I incorporate the ones that work for me and make sense to my customers and readers.
For fall and winter I have classic pieces in my wardrobe that I call the “bread and butter” of my closet. These are pieces like:
- White t shirts (short and long sleeve)
- Skinny jeans in blue and black
- Basic sweaters in neutrals and black
- Black faux leather leggings
- Black booties, loafers and sneakers
As you can see I didn’t mention any jackets or blazers, even though my closet is filled with them. The reason for that is I have so many classic jackets and blazers I have collected throughout the years that are still fashionable and I wear them on daily basis. This is one of the best things about purchasing classic jackets and blazers, you get a lot of use out of them.
For fall and winter, most days my outfit will consist of black skinny jeans, long sleeve white tee, a neutral sweater on top (if its cold) and one of my classic blazers that is either a solid color, houndstooth, herringbone or any classic pattern, black booties and I am good to go. To finish off the look, I either add a necklace or two or a scarf, or both. Personally I also love belts, but I know this is not for everyone.
Today I am showing you a look that I would call classic and timeless as all the pieces I am wearing can be worn for many years to come.
- A basic turtleneck (can be replaced with a crewneck)
- Black skinny pants (can be replaced with straight leg pants)
- Black pumps
- Our Blaire Houndstooth Blazer which is a classic cut and fabric
- Our Black/Cream geometric pattern wrap which can be worn for many years to come
- A few of our necklaces that will never go out of style
I believe most of our wardrobes should be filled with classic and timeless pieces that we can wear for a long time. Then you can add some trendy pieces in the mix to freshen them up each season.
