Fashions and trends are ever-changing and trying to keep up with them can be absolutely exhausting. Fortunately, there are some things that never change. They may differ slightly year on year. Embellishments added, colours varied and bits cut out of the middle, but, they remain. Ever fashionable, always in style. Here’s a look at 10 of the fashion staples that you need in your wardrobe, year in, year out.
Jeans, such as dickies jeans, simply had to be the first thing on a list of fashion staples. While the cut may change, have skinny had their day? Jeans themselves will always be in style. They can be dressed up with heels and a nice top, or worn casually with pumps and a tee. You can cut them off to shorts in the summer and tuck them into boots in autumn/winter. Whatever the season, you need a good pair of jeans.
Scarves are an inexpensive way to completely change an outfit. There are so many different ways to wear a scarf, which can add glamour to an outfit, or tone it down. It’s worth having a few in principal colours to add something to your wardrobe without needing to replace critical pieces.
The Classic White Tee
Like jeans, the white tee works with everything. Wear it with your jeans and pumps for a day out around town. Or style it up by wearing under a slip dress for a hot night out. The simple white tee will never go out of fashion; it’s an essential.
Whether you prefer heels or flats, you need a simple pair of smart, black shoes. Keep them plain and uncomplicated so they can be teamed with jeans, smart trousers skirts and dresses. The everyday black shoe could take you from the office to a night on the town quite comfortably.
A button down white shirt is another thing that goes through the changes. Some years tailored is in, others it’s oversized. But there’s always a white shirt.
The cross-body bag is great because it gives you a little safety. You can run around the park with the kids, or keep your work files close, without worrying that your bag could slide down your arm. Cross-bodies come in a huge range of styles, colours and sizes.
A black leather jacket is iconic. They look great over sexy dresses, with casual jeans and everything in-between. Too stylish and cool to ever go out of fashion, so invest in a good one.
The wrap dress is one of the few outfits that flatter any size and shape. It’ll never go out of fashion because it’s one of the few things anyone looks good in.
How would we cope without ankle boots? It doesn’t bear thinking about.
The trench coat is another iconic jacket that’s a must have, any time of year. Team with jeans and jumpers in the winter and over dresses in the spring. It’ll always look great while protecting you from the elements.
