Recently I have begun to see the importance of timeless and classic pieces more than ever. There’s something so alluring about garments that remain iconic, chic, and effortlessly constructed to withstand the test of time through trends and wear. Channel your most fashion-forward self for fall by incorporating these timeless pieces into your wardrobe.
Forever style appeared at many fall runaways in both clothing and accessories. Timeless fashion pieces have value now and for years to come. Below are ways to identify those pieces and put them into use for fall this season (and possibly for seasons ahead).
Getting Timeless Pieces
- If the item is a staple, then it’s probably a safe bet.
- Key pieces are only as good as their details. Modern details keep timeless pieces updated. This is possible because of the strong base that a timeless garment provides.
- Capturing the essence of timeless fashion is all about elevated staples that build right off core pieces already in your wardrobe.
- Timeless pieces work with a wide range of other garments, so if you find a piece you’re reaching for often, then you’re likely right on track.
Pieces to Own
A blazer with structure is perfect when paired with matching trousers. In a truly timeless set, the two pieces are just as strong when worn separately. If a matching work-wear set doesn’t scream timeless, then I’m convinced timeless wardrobes don’t exist.
A key staple in any wardrobe is denim. The trick to timeless denim is finding the perfect fit for your body and lifestyle. A modern style especially popular for fall is a wide-leg fit. As designers channeled timeless fashion for fall 22/23′ wide-leg denim paired well with trendy pieces and staples. A versatile piece speaks for itself—It’s timeless.
Don’t underestimate a good button-up. Like the other pieces mentioned, a button-up is versatile and extremely easy to adapt into a wardrobe season after season. Right now, oversized silhouettes are supreme. A relaxed fit will keep the look current and cool for years without looking dated.
Finding the perfect white tee isn’t an easy feat. When you find it, you’ll reach for it often. A boyfriend tee is perfect for this fall since it fits with the relaxed silhouettes on trend and it can be manipulated to different lengths and worn with literally anything regardless of the occasion.
A cardigan for fall makes perfect sense. One crucial note is the more neutral and well-constructed a cardigan is, the better. Different knits will work depending on preference and climate. A timeless cardigan will work alone and pair well when layered and worn with a wide variety of clothing styles.
Moto style for fall is trending, so let’s make this leather jacket one that goes further than a single season. The perfect leather jacket seems to change from one year to the next, but a timeless leather jacket is made with quality and a general fit that isn’t going to age. Yes, a relaxed fit with a very subtle crop is both timeless and modern.
Both timeless and staple pieces almost work together interchangeably. Creating a wardrobe you feel confident in means adding pieces that serve as a steady foundation, much like a staple wardrobe. Finding the perfect pieces while still staying stylish can be a challenge, but it’s possible and takes the guesswork out of dressing and shopping. I don’t know about you, but I love the sound of that.
