When you flick through a fashion magazine or watch a runway show on TV, it might feel as though trends change so quickly that it can be hard to keep up. You save up for a fringed vest, only to find when you’ve bought it that it’s totally out of style and now everyone is all about pom pom embellishments. If you don’t have unlimited money to spend on keeping up to date on the latest fashion, here are some items that will never go out of style.
Jeans are such a perfect staple item, as they can be worn in so many ways. Although there will always be trends in the jean and denim world, from cuts to colors, a good pair of jeans will always be in style. The key to rocking jeans is to find a pair that perfectly suits your body shape. Different cuts will flatter wide hips, long legs, and curvy stomachs, so try a few pairs on before deciding. Jeans can be worn super casual with a simple tee and sneakers or dressed up with heels, a blouse, and a fitted blazer.
A favorite of Victoria Beckham and Burberry, a trench coat is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Super versatile, to be worn with casual jeans and a sweater, or more dressed up office wear and heels, a trench coat is as functional as it is stylish and looks good on pretty much anyone. Go for a neutral color and don’t be afraid to spend a bit of money investing in a good quality trench coat, as this will last you years.
The little black dress is one item that every woman should have in her closet. Black is flattering on everyone and appropriate for most occasions – whether you dress it up with bold accessories, or keep things classic and simple, it’s always a good look. Just like jeans, your own personal style is essential here. Find a fit and style that works with your body, from bodycon to floaty, and if you change up your shoes and jewelry, no one will even realize when you wear it again.
A plain white tee
An absolute must-have whether you are a total fashionista, or couldn’t care less about what is in Vogue. A plain white t-shirt looks effortlessly stylish tucked into jeans, or can bring balance to an outfit with patterned pants. Layer it under or over other items, add a blazer, or wear it with sweatpants to the gym. There is no wrong way to rock a white t-shirt.
There is something about heels that makes you feel more confident, and they can add an extra touch of class and sophistication to an outfit. Perfect for a date, girls’ night or just a big presentation at the office. Although fun, bright-colored heels can be a great statement, they can go out of style quite quickly, so be sure to invest in a classic pair of black heels. Look for a bit of detail to add some pizazz, such as an ankle tie or embellishment, and make sure they are comfy enough to wear regularly!
So while you might not make it into the pages of a fashion magazine wearing any of these outfits, you can be sure that you’ll never look dated and out of style!
