Fashion changes all the time and trends come and go, but classic style is forever. If you’re looking to build up your wardrobe with pieces that will never go out of style, look no further than these timeless styles that have stood the test of time. From white button-up shirts to high-waisted trousers, these timeless fashion styles are sure to last you through the decades—and ensure that you always look good at any occasion.
Pick Up Clothes That Fit Well
Clothes that don’t fit well make you look sloppy and bring down your confidence. Before buying new clothing, try it on in person—you’ll be able to tell if something fits by paying attention to how it moves with your body as you try it on. If you can’t get to a store, consider ordering online but then returning what doesn’t work for free (or for a small fee).
And remember: If it doesn’t fit right off the rack, tailoring costs money but is often worth it. If you need help picking out clothes that will flatter your figure and last for years, consider visiting a personal stylist at a department store or an independent stylist who works one-on-one with clients.
Wear Pieces That Don’t Go Out of Style
Fashion is constantly changing, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to stay up-to-date. Buy pieces that don’t go out of style so you can always be in fashion, even when trends have changed. Leather jackets, shearling coats and trench coats will be a staple in your wardrobe for years to come.
If you want to keep up with current trends, buy classic items like skinny jeans or white tees. You can easily update these items by wearing them with different shoes or adding trendy accessories like scarves or jewelry. With all of that said, it’s important to note that there are many ways to make money online.
While blogging is a great way (and one I use myself) I wanted to point out an option for those who aren’t interested in writing content as part of their job or business. This short guide will give you step by step instructions on how to start a YouTube channel and get started making money from home doing something you love!
Look For Good Construction
To make sure you’re getting a quality piece, look for expertly sewn seams and good fabric construction. You should also check that all buttons are attached tightly. Clothes should have enough heft that they hang nicely, but not so much that they weigh you down. For example, skirts shouldn’t billow or flounce too much; blazers shouldn’t appear too stiff.
If you’re shopping online, use your phone to take pictures of any items that catch your eye—then compare them with pictures of similar items on other sites. If there are differences in style or quality, it will be easier to spot in photos than in person. And if something looks like it might run small or large (or if it has a lot of stretch), buy one size up and one size down so you can figure out which fits best.
Mix In Trends And New Items
Fashion is a tricky thing to get right, and there’s no single perfect way of doing it. One good tactic that works for some people is following traditional style rules—but mixing in new items here and there. For example, you could wear a classic white shirt with a pair of nice dress pants or your favorite jeans. This combination strikes a nice balance between classic and contemporary pieces, creating an overall look that stays trendy but never strays too far from tradition.
In addition, keep your accessories simple and don’t overdo it on rings or necklaces; those can add unnecessary flair to an outfit that already has enough going on. If you want more advice on how to stay fashionable without losing yourself in trends, consider asking friends what they think of your fashion sense (good news: they probably won’t be able to pinpoint what they like about it).
Choose Your Accessories Wisely
When it comes to timeless dressing, nothing beats a classic black pencil skirt and crisp white button-down shirt. The trick is knowing how—and when—to step out of that shell. For example, if you’re going for a more dressy look, try an on-trend structured clutch or cocktail ring. (Just make sure they fit your overall outfit aesthetic.) This might mean going against your personal style, but fashion has no set rules. Strive for balance by choosing one accessory from each category. Think of accessories as your extras.
Just like a carpenter uses nails and screws, you should use styling tricks—like scarves and jewelry—to give your outfit that special something that makes it stand out from others. If you invest in good-quality staples, a cheap accessory (such as a scarf) will add more flair than an expensive piece of clothing or shoe. It’s better to be interesting than it is to be fashionable.
Keep An Eye On What Other People Are Wearing
Once you’ve got a handle on how you want to look, take a minute and think about what other people are wearing. The fashion industry is always changing and sometimes it’s hard for people who don’t work in fashion or haven’t kept up with trends in years (such as myself) to keep track of everything. So how do you stay in touch?
Keep an eye on what other people are wearing. What’s trending? What looks good on them? What doesn’t? You can learn a lot by watching others.
