10 Timeless Fashion Essentials Every Classy Woman Must Own
While the fashion weeks may bring new and exciting trends, it can be difficult to keep up sometimes, so we thought we’d take a look at some of the timeless classics that will have you in looking amazing, year after year. These are the items that are worth investing in, because they will always look fashionable and they can be paired with so many other things. These are the ten timeless fashion classics that every classy woman should own.
1. White button up shirts
A good quality white button up shirt will see you through a job interview as well as it will work for a dinner date and a white shirt can be paired with just about anything. This is one of the items in our list that will really be worth spending a little bit extra on, because the more expensive button up shirts will hold their shape better and it will stay looking crisp and white for much longer.
2. Ballet flats
In total contrast to white button up shirts, ballet flats are an item of clothing that you don’t need to spend a ton of money on, because even the most expensive ones will probably need replacing after a year or two. In fact, if you buy the cheaper brands of ballet flats, you can have a whole collection of different colours and styles and then you’ll have something comfortable and stylish to wear any day that you want to.
3. Little black dress
The classics of all classics; the little black dress is an absolute must for any style conscious girl. To make an LBD one that you can wear anywhere, which is exactly what an LBD is supposed to be, choose a dress that doesn’t show off too much cleavage and is not too short. That way, you’ll have a smart dress that you can wear at work with a blazer, as well a as a classy dress you can wear with heels on a night out.
4. A pair of quality blue jeans
The great thing about jeans is that are now made in so many different styles that you can always find a style that will flatter your body shape. Dark jeans are usually more slimming, but really, go for the jeans that make you feel great and you’ll have a friend in your wardrobe for all kinds of occasions.
5. A collection of lightweight scarves
Lightweight scarves can be used for so many different things that you really should have a good collection all kinds of different shapes and sizes in your wardrobe. You can tie a scarf in your hair, you could wear it as a belt, tie it around the handle of your bag and much, much more besides. When you wear a scarf around your neck, you can twist it first, wear it loose, or pin it with your favourite brooch. Scarves are also a great way to add a splash of colour to an otherwise fairly plain outfit.
6. A pair of black pumps
Black pumps are so practical and they look so classy too. If you choose a stylish pair of back black pumps, they will look dressy enough to wear on a special evening out and they will work great as a way of dressing up a casual look without looking out of place. One thing to always watch out for when you are buying any shoes is make sure that they fit well from day one. While people say that shoes will “wear in”, they rarely ever do properly.
7. A classic trench coat
Trench coats are not everyone’s favourite, but there is no denying they look classy. A good trench coat will last for years and years and it will go with your classic blue jeans or your little black dress. For the best look, go for a trench coat that ends just above the knees and is loose enough around the shoulders and sleeves so that you can layer underneath. Invest in a trench coat and you’ll never have to wear boring winter-wear again.
8. A black blazer
A black blazer is one of those adaptable pieces that will go with virtually everything and you can change the look completely by accessorising. It’s well worth taking your time choosing a black blazer and making sure that you get a well fitted one. You don’t have to spend crazy money to get a good blazer, but the better the cut; the more fabulous it will look.
9. Brown knee-high boots
For a classy, casual look, you can’t beat a pair of knee-high, riding style boots. Wear them with skinny jeans, a solid coloured dress, or leggings; the choice is all yours. If you want to wear them for any length time, go for boots that have no more than a two inch heel and then you’ll be able to wear them all day long without feeling the pinch.
Cardigans are great for those times when you can’t be quite sure what the weather will be like. You can wear them open or closed and, if it gets a bit too warm, you can throw them over your shoulder or tie them around your waist. They also come in a wide variety of styles and fabrics, so pick several and you’ll always have a good selection to choose from.
