There’s nothing wrong with adding a trendy item to your wardrobe from time to time. After all, this is a great way to spice things up a little bit and create a unique style. However, if you want to look your best and very fashion-conscious every time you go out, regardless of the occasion, the best course of action would be to embrace the classic and timeless pieces. These should make up the majority of your style, with trendy bits and pieces only a passing fancy that serves the purpose of oomphed-up creative expression. In case you’re looking to create your own timeless fashion style, keep in mind the following staples.
Top-quality high-waisted jeans
Well, everybody has jeans, right? That may be true, but if you want to create a true classic wardrobe style, you don’t really need a bunch of different jeans designs that aren’t the most flattering on you, or are simply poorly made. Classic and timeless pieces are worth the investment.
With that in mind, you really can’t go wrong with a top-quality pair of high-waisted denim jeans. You can choose a skinny or straight leg, depending on what you prefer and what suits you better. In general, darker denim is ideal for the classic look, but if you really enjoy the vibe of washed-out denim, it’s fine to go with it, too. The point is that you can always rely on your jeans when you need comfort, stylishness, and versatility. The right pair of good jeans is ideal for moments when you hang out with your friends on weekends as well as some more business casual situations. Choose them wisely.
Classic tops that match with everything
Basic tees will always be a necessity. They’re great for layering but on their own, too. In that respect, you can’t go wrong with getting a couple of basic tees with long and short sleeves that fit you nicely. Again, stick to quality as there’s no point in getting them ruined in the wash every couple of months. White and black are a must, but you can also spice things up with other solid colours.
Aside from the basic tees, every classic wardrobe should have a tailored white button-down shirt that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. You can easily let your personality shine through by choosing interesting cufflinks, collars, or collar jewellery.
Finally, when tops are concerned, you can never go wrong with a fitted blazer. A good quality blazer is effective for more formal occasions, but it can also be a fun layering piece when you’re feeling casual – all you have to do is add more accessories and roll up the sleeves.
No accessory can beat a classic watch
If you’re looking for a way to curate your accessory and jewellery collection, keep in mind that less is more. You don’t need a bunch of little bits and bobs to effectively elevate your look. What’s more, you can do that just fine with one accessory only – a nice watch. Of course, you can have more than one watch, but if you truly want to invest in your timeless and classic look, you should definitely pick one watch to rule them all.
A top-quality watch that looks amazing is bound to make your every outfit more put-together and high-end. And it’s always possible to add more personality to a classic design with delicate details or gorgeous engraved watches that will only up the accessory’s value in your eyes.
From black stilettos to white sneakers
Footwear is a big part of your classic look, but it can also be difficult to avoid the trends when looking for new heels or sneakers. You don’t have to stress over having more than just a couple of pairs of footwear, especially if you’re just at the beginning of curating your own classic wardrobe.
But, keep in mind that the two options you should never compromise on are sleek and elegant stiletto shoes in black with a bit of a heel (or high heel if you prefer that) and simple white sneakers such as Converse or classic Adidas. These pair well with a bunch of different outfits and work for many occasions.
The classics that never go out of style will also make your life easier every time you have to get ready in a rush. Still, you’ll get to look fashionable and like a million bucks without a fault.
