Whether you like to create your own style or you like to follow current trends, you’ll want to invest in a few timeless pieces that either never go out of style or just keep coming back. Even if you always purchase something from the latest style that comes out, here are a few things you want to make sure your wardrobe includes.
Denim Pants or Jeans
Whether you go with blue or any other color, jeans have been around for a long time and aren’t going anywhere soon. They basically go with anything and everything, whether you’re sporting your new Air Jordan Bordeaux 6s or spiked heels. Jeans can be dressed up with a leather jacket or dressed down with a casual T-shirt.
Whether you prefer a T-shirt, a V-neck, or a button-down with a collar, a white shirt is a requirement for every wardrobe. White is very versatile and works especially well with layers of all types. It can be the lowest layer or the top layer equally well.
Jacket or Coat
Whatever the weather presents, changing up your look with a top layer can really make your look pop. Go with a faux leather blazer if you don’t have the real thing – you can find these in thrift stores year-round. You may want to invest in several different styles or colors.
If you’re not into leather, fall back on a classic denim jacket. Depending on what you wear it with, it can dress up your outfit or keep things more casual.
A trench coat is another option that can show your fashion sense. Pick a length that you like and go with it. You will find that you have many options of texture and color to choose from.
Florals and Plaids
Don’t stick to solid colors, except for that white shirt. Floral prints have been popular forever and don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Whether you prefer a small vintage print or large colorful flowers, you should have something floral in your closet. The fun thing is that you can go with bold or neutral flowers of any size and shape.
Plaid has been one style that has true staying power. From kilts in the British Isles to farmhands during the dust bowl, plaid is timeless. The fun thing about it is that you can go with a plaid shirt for men or women, skirts, scarves, and even trousers! You may want to go with throw-back flared plaid pants for a 70s look.
Even though you want to fill your closet with plenty of colorful items, you will also want to be sure that you have several items that are neutral colors. Beige, gray, tan and even black are colors that can go with whatever else you have. Keep a variety of both casual and dressy pieces in several neutral colors.
Mixing up your wardrobe choices with colors, patterns and textures will keep you trendy whether or not you like to buy into the latest fads.
