many of you have read my blog tagline that goes like this: trends come and go but true style is ageless. this is an attitude i live by. oh sure, it’s fun to hop on the fashion trend train. it’s important to stay abreast of what’s current and keep our wardrobe looking modern and fresh. and there’s been more than one trend through the years that turned into closet staples. think skinny jeans. but when it comes to pulling an outfit together day after day there are several wardrobe must-have’s i reach for time and again. these items are the building blocks of my closet that never go out of style. that’s right. never. let’s take a look my top five.
there are so many colors to choose from these days it’s hard to make a decision. metallic, blue, red and pink never let me down.
a simple cashmere crewneck is perfect for winter and will last for years. but don’t forget to add a pattern or two to your collection. sometimes, a girl’s just gotta have fun.
there’s always one navy and one black blazer hanging in my closet. but an all-time favorite is the mighty tweed that instantly dresses up a pair of jeans or chinos. i also love velvet and a knit, and, well, the list goes on and on for me.
ballet flats have long been a perennial favorite of mine. look for textures like velvet or flannel for extra pizazz. loafers are next on my favorite list. but a sling-back is sexy and gives instant chic to any outfit. it looks as if mules are making a comeback this year. but don’t forget a cap toe is a classic that never goes out of style.
totes are the handbag of choice when i head out on a shopping spree. why? because you can stash your shopping bags inside. brown or black leather is a perfect choice. but for some summer fun, a canvas stripe can’t be beaten.
