Fashion is a creative, booming industry with an endless amount of designs and ideas that can inspire the way you dress. Sometimes, however, the choice is simply overwhelming and trends end up changing in the blink of an eye, with one season rolling over before the last one is even done. But don’t panic, here are four timeless trends that will definitely never go out of style (well at least they haven’t so far) so you can be rest assured to invest in them as staples for your wardrobe.
All Black Anything
Black is the pinnacle of minimalism. It’s is universally appealing and makes a sophisticated statement as any part of your outfit. For a work-safe look, invest in a great black office dress or pencil skirt. Black leather jackets and structured blazers will always give an edgy effect or opt for black accessories like nails, stilettoes or bags for an eye-catching essential feature all year round.
The types of prints may vary with the seasons or with different designers but two styles that will always comeback around are floral and animal prints. Depending on how daring you are, you can choose a bold or subtle way to incorporate these into your look. Animal prints are best suited for evenings and beachwear and patterns such as leopard print on pumps or lingerie give a seductive touch.
From the times of Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn, pearl jewellery is a timeless classic and often a valuable vintage heirloom item. Pearls are perfect for daytime in earrings and simple necklaces and can often be teamed with black dresses or formal blouses. For a glamorous evening out, pearls are almost a must and will add timeless elegance to almost any outfit.
Fresh, White Shirt
Fitting for all year round and versatile for any occasion, the fresh white shirt is an essential wardrobe staple. You can dress it down for a casual lunch or shopping trip with your favourite pair of jeans or keep it formal for important work meetings. In fact, it’s often a good idea to have a couple of white shirts to choose from as they can be hard to keep clean – especially around some lovely red wine and scrumptious food!
It’s important to keep flexible when it comes to fashion as you never know where your mood will take you each day and with a couple of essential pieces, you can be prepared for any occasion that comes your way.
