Fashion trends come and go, but the truth is that just because a certain fashion goes out of style, does not mean that good fashion becomes outdated. If something eventually goes out of style, chances are it was never that great to begin with. Yet another one of the dime a dozen trends set arbitrarily by big corporations and celebrities. True fashion stays true forever, and some pieces of clothing age like fine wine, rather than milk left on the windowsill. No matter where you are in the world, regardless of time period, some clothes stay as good looking as ever. Let’s talk about some classic items which everyone has come to know and love over the years, managing to turn heads even now.
It is probably safe to assume that Jeans are the most popular choice of legwear in the world. While it may seem like a rather bold statement, just take a look around you the next time you are out in about in the city. Maybe you don’t even need to leave the house, just look back and try to visualise the kind of thing you see being worn by most people on an everyday basis. If jeans were not at least somewhere up there in the top spot, you might just be on a different planet. Nobody is referring to the somewhat-silly looking wide-leg jeans popularised by the hip-hop culture in the mid-90s, but some of the more regular and traditional designs. Be it skinny jeans, slim fit, regular, loose or relaxed, all types stood the test of time, time and time again, making them possibly one of the most long-standing fashionable clothing items in history. Due to their universal nature, jeans can give off any sort of vibe depending on the rest of your attire. Ranging from informal, to smart casual, you can pull off any style with a good pair of jeans. Truly God’s gift to the fashion world.
KEEP IT CLASSY
Class never goes out of style, for a very good reason. To say the least, it is definitely classy. No matter the occasion, if you went out right now in a classic polka dot silk blouse and a skirt, easy on the eyes is the least which could describe you. It is simply yet another timeless style that just keeps on giving. Want to keep it more casual? The same blouse but with any sort of trousers and some flats would do the trick, perfect for a day out with friends. While they may not be as common as the average blouse, ensembles from 1950s America are essentially timeless. Masterfully crafted, with a perfected form which accentuates just every little bit that it needs to, while still maintaining an air of refinement and subtlety. The classic dress, heel and handbag combo will never go out of style, and thank god for that. Looking for a classy yet casual look? A retro tea dress might be just the thing you are after. Going out to dinner after work? A short-sleeve blouse and pencil skirt can bring that office-lady attire out into the wide world, just to have everyone gawk in amazement. In the era of hooded jumpers and sweatpants, genuinely refined and feminine attire is much appreciated by anyone with some half-decent taste. Highly recommended to leave long-lasting impressions.
