There are a few classic items that should be in every woman’s closet as pieces that are timeless and look chic no matter what is trendy. And because these looks don’t have a fashion expiration date, it’s wise to invest in quality pieces even if they are a little more expensive. Here are the top 5 classic wardrobe items that deserve a place of honor in your closet.
5.) The Trench Coat- The classic trench coat has been stylish for decades and is a must-have especially for cool and rainy climates. Get one with a belt to give your waist definition and add a feminine touch. And don’t be afraid to get one in a non-traditional color like red, purple, or silver. If that’s too bold for your taste, add a decorative scarf to make the trench coat look uniquely your own.
4.) Knee High Boots- They happen to be really hot right now, but knee high boots always look good. They elongate your legs and if you get ones with high heels, they’ll give you a little height too. (And they also happen to look outstanding with a trench coat!) Leather and suede are classic fabrics that if you take proper care of your boots, they will last a lifetime.
3.) The Perfect Black Heels- Invest in a well made pair of black high heels and pick ones that flatter the shape of your foot. Shoe trends will come and go, but a quality pair of black pumps will always look sharp.
2.) Blue Blazer- It is a little preppy, but when worn with a good pair of jeans, it takes a look and moves it from casual to classy. Also, it will never go out of style. It looks sophisticated, but can actually be very comfortable. For the classic look, pair it with a white blouse. To give your look a modern update, wear it with a brightly colored tee or a black and white striped shirt.
1.) The Classic White Blouse- White blouses come in many varieties so get one that fits your style. It can be dressed up or dressed down but a crisp white blouse can make any woman look chic. Wear it with your best jeans for an easy way to look both modern and timeless.
