The key word here is “timeless.” When you opt for something that is on-trend, you may end up spending money on something that you can only wear once. Timeless style is classic and therefore stays in style for more than one year or season. This means you should avoid the obvious trend setters such as pattern and colour. Instead look to the classic colours such as black, white, grey and beige tones. In other words, think neutral. Even stripes can be a tell-tale style faux pas, so go for solid neutrals.
Sleeve length is important as well. Go for sleeveless or short sleeves as you can wear these to most occasions in all seasons. Look to classic Holiday style which might fall in the dead of winter, but sleeveless and short sleeve dresses are always in style.
The little black dress is a classic and always will be. Black dresses can be easily accessorized to make them a little more fashion forward and the addition of a wrap, jacket or scarf that is more on-trend can liven them up in an instant!
Classic lines will keep you classic. Pleats, peplums and other overt details will date your outfit quicker than you might care to admit!
Accessories may give you away even more than an out of style outfit, so if you want to accessorize, do it per occasion and bring your outfit along when shopping. A good clothing shop will be able to assist you in selecting the perfect items to complement your outfit whether it’s a clutch purse, earrings or hair clip!
