Timeless Style Trends – Style Staples
As promised, here is the list of the ‘TOP 40 Timeless Style Trends‘, the ‘wardrobe essentials list’. This list of timeless style staples is in no particular order. And it isn’t carved in stone. It is meant to be adapted to your own particular body shape and personal clothes style…
High quality style staples make a perfect wardrobe canvas year after year. Shop for quality not quantity. So, what constitutes quality in a staple besides the material(s)? Check out the stitching, the inside lining, the zippers, and all those hidden details that aren’t obvious to most people at a glance. It’s craftsmanship that gives timeless style staples longevity and which lets them weather fashion trends.
Invest in a classic cut and color and your staples will be stylish for decades to come. You’ll have an interchangeable wardrobe of style staples that will be a no-brainer and a morning time-saver. It will also save you costly fashion mistakes because nothing is more expensive than an item that you never wear and it’s sitting in your closet!
Points to remember
- Quality, not quantity is what ensures you look and feel great – A stylish woman does not need to wear something different every day of the week, but she will want to wear it differently.
- It’s craftsmanship that gives timeless style staples longevity. The quality of the fabric and the simplicity of cut.
- It’s false that if you hang on to your clothes long enough, they’ll come around again and be fashionable. The truth is, they never come back identically, which will give away the age of your old clothes.
- Even if the clothes haven’t aged, you have. Wearing clothes that you wore 15-20 years ago actually ages you more.
So, use this list of timeless style trends as a guide to forming or reinforcing your own style identity.
