The clothing we choose to wear says so much about who we are as individuals, what we have been through, and where we see ourselves going. Whether you’re just starting to develop your personal style or you’ve always loved putting outfits together, the fashion industry can be overwhelming.
In recent years, fast fashion has become increasingly popular, making it challenging to keep up with the trends unless you are always paying attention. You can follow influencers and style accounts, but keeping up with the newest trends tends to be both time-consuming and costly.
Though fashion changes and evolves all the time, there are some quintessential, timeless fashion trends that will never go out of style. These make the perfect staples for any closet and are great investment pieces! Looking for trends that never go out of style? You’re in the right place.
Animal print is a hot style that will always have a place in the fashion world. Think (faux) pieces like snakeskin print, leopard, cheetah, zebra, or tiger prints. While the look is undoubtedly current, animal print is virtually seasonless. Despite its trendiness, it’s a closet classic and fun piece that packs a punch. Go ahead and walk on the wild side, whether you do a small pop of print or wear it as a statement piece.
Florals have always been a spring staple, but now you’ll find more modern floral prints that work all year round. Floral prints have existed for ages; they add a feminine touch to any look. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about your grandmother’s cardigan here, luckily the look has changed with the times. From dainty daisies to punchy peonies, you can find the perfect floral print to suit your style. Consider giving a boost your basic blouse or blazer. If you’re feeling flirty, there’s nothing more timeless than a sundress in a fresh, floral print.
A Trench Coat
The trench coat: It’s chic, it’s universally flattering, and it’s a great investment piece for the fall and winter months. The beloved fashion staple is equal parts practical and pretty. Look to classic fashion brands for a well-made trench in a silhouette that flatters your body type. This is an investment piece, but you can save at end-of-season sales, and they last for many, many years.
From fashion to home decor, neutrals have taken over the design industry and have become almost a lifestyle choice. Neutrals are notoriously timeless and give an air of effortless style. Plus, neutrals pair with just about everything in your closet! They tone down loud prints, mix easily, and keep your closet current. Think of pieces across the spectrum of muted tones like cream, tan, white, and navy.
This boardroom babe style is a must-have for your closet. The blazer isn’t only considered office attire; a chic blazer works after hours too. Pair it with a great pair of jeans to dress up a casual look, or throw one over a silky cami for cocktail hour. Play with cuts, prints, and colors for your unique look. From oversized tweed to sleek and cropped, a blazer elevates any closet.
A Denim Jacket
No matter what is trending, denim jackets always hold their place as the most essential item in one’s closet. Denim jackets come in so many different styles ranging from oversized to distressed – and even dyed denim depending on the season. Throw this timeless piece over a cami or sundress to extend your summer wardrobe. Toss an oversized denim jacket over a long-sleeved turtleneck during winter months. The point is, you can never go wrong with a quality denim jacket.
A Leather Jacket
Every fashionista knows that the key to any simple nighttime look is an amazing (faux) leather jacket. Faux leather jackets are the perfect way to level up any look by adding a touch of edge.
White sneakers take the prize for the most versatile, timeless shoe that pretty much goes with everything. A clean sneaker finishes off any look. Pair them with your dresses, skinny jeans, or shorts; the options are endless.
Sunglass trends can be shortlived. You may look back and laugh at your old looks, from oversized fly-like glasses to the round John Lennon style glasses. Don’t forget about the tiny glasses from the 1990s. Yet, aviators remain popular. They look great on everyone, and they also add an undeniable sense of coolness to any look.
