Styles change depending on the season. A silhouette can be in for spring and totally over by summer. However, there are some staples that have been able to stand the test of time. These classic pieces compliment every shape and size and can be worn time and again in a variety of ways and for a variety of occasions.
Here are some classic pieces every woman should own:
The trench coat: Typically, the trench is a khaki color but that isn’t a steadfast rule. The only real thing to know is that a trench coat will keep you stylish through the crispiness of fall and the breeziness of spring. Completely versatile, the trench works with every piece of clothing.
Ballet Flats: They worked for Audrey all those years ago and they will work for you today. Ballet flats are one shoe that will never go out of style and can be worn with literally every piece of clothing—you will never have to worry whether the heel height or the shape is in season.
The White Shirt: Timeless, tailored and versatile, the white shirt can be worn with your favorite jeans or dressed up with pearls for a night out. No matter which silhouette you choose (ruffles, tee or men’s wear inspired) the white shirt exudes a clean look mixed with a bit of chic appeal.
Black Pumps: Since the beginning of time, or at least it feels that way, one shoe has maintained its reputation as a fashion icon. Worn by everyone from Marilyn to Carrie (Bradshaw, that is), the black pump has been made, sold and worn in every shape, heel height and fabric. But the fact remains that it is the shoe to have in your wardrobe. The black pump can be serious, stylish, sexy or professional and always, always timeless.
Keep your closet stocked with these classic pieces and your wardrobe will be anything but dated and boring. Here’s to being timeless and effortlessly chic!
