It’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed with all the choices out there where your wardrobe is concerned. But if you’re starting to feel the pressure of always trying to keep up with the latest trends in the fashion world, it might be time to slow down and rethink your wardrobe.
With the fashion industry’s impact on the environment in the spotlight more than ever before, there’s never been a better time to stop following short-lived trends and invest in wardrobe staples that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
We’ve whittled down our wardrobes to round-up the fashion items that are always in style below.
A timeless handbag
As much as we love the teeny-tiny, pintsized handbags that have dominated handbag trends for the last couple of seasons, they’re more of a fashion statement than a piece that will never go out of style.
Our handbags arguably get more wear than any other item in our wardrobe, therefore it pays to invest in arm candy that you’re going to be able to wear no matter what trends the season brings with it.
Opting for a classic colour palette – think rich caramels, soft neutrals shades and inky blacks – is the safest bet if you want a handbag that you can reach for regardless of the rest of your outfit.
A coat you’ll wear winter after winter
If there is one piece that we reach for time and time again once the temperature plummets, it has to be our coat.
To ensure your coat stands the test of time, look to invest in high-quality materials – a wool blend is guaranteed to keep you warm – a classic silhouette that flatters your body shape, and a colour that you’re happy to throw over the top of almost whatever you’re wearing.
While understated colours are a safe option, there’s no shortage of bold and beautiful coloured coats on offer these days – get inspired right here.
Comfy sneakers you can dress up or down
While we love a great pair of heels, if there’s one item of footwear that you should be investing in right now it’s a great pair of sneakers.
Fortunately long gone are the days where opting for comfort meant sacrificing style: today many sneakers combine the best of both worlds.
Make the most of what’s sure to become a favourite in your footwear repertoire by investing in a pair that you can dress up or down. While sneakers are the obvious choice when wearing jeans, these days a great pair of fashion-forward sneakers can be paired with everything from sleek midi skirts and floaty floral dresses.
A well-tailored blazer
When it comes to fashion items that are always in style, a well-tailored blazer is right near the top of the list.
A blazer is also the one fashion item that tends to quickly solve the conundrum of being underdressed for an occasion. Pop a blazer on over the top of your go-to jeans and white tee combo to immediately elevate your look. Keeping a well-tailored blazer at the office is also a quick way to ensure you’re always ready for impromptu meetings.
Denim that fits perfectly
Much to our delight rock ‘n’ roll-inspired, ripped-up denim has finally made way for more refined silhouettes that are easy to dress up.
When looking to invest in a great pair of jeans don’t be afraid to spend a little more on jeans that are sure to stand the test of time. Spend time looking for a cut that you love and that flatters your figure and do your research and work out which brands are known for their durability.
