Trends come and go; some even cycle back around a few years later. But as much fun as it is to keep up with fashion trends, a well-rounded wardrobe always needs a few classic foundation pieces that never go out of style.
When it comes to these trend-proof essentials, it’s perfectly appropriate to splurge on quality over quantity! Investing in pieces that will take you through multiple outfits and seasons is just a smart way to stay stylish through fleeting trends.
Below are some classic pieces that are destined to be on heavy rotation in any closet:
This piece never goes out of style and can be worn for all seasons. Team with a crisp white shirt and then finish off with some black penny loafers or ankle boots for a smart-casual look that takes just seconds to put together.
You’re going to need a bag to carry all your daily essentials. One in black or brown (or both colors) is ideal so that you can easily coordinate with the rest of your wardrobe. Get a bag that it’s well-made so that you can store everything without having to worry about it breaking in the middle of your commute.
A pair of flats go pretty much with everything. They can be thrown in your bag for those days when you want to switch out your heels for something more comfortable. The beauty of flats is that you can buy them in every color and style for all kinds of occasions.
Always on trend, distressed jeans should be part of your wardrobe essentials. In the fall, wear them with ankle booties or sneakers and in warmer months with cute wedge sandals.
Easy to wear boots that you can take from the office to cocktails after. Search for a pair of ankle boots that are made out of leather for a chic yet edgy look.
