Invest in These Trend-Proof Fashion Pieces
Fashion trends come and go, but there are a few tried and true pieces that have lasted throughout the years and have thus cemented themselves as trend-proof. Since these classic fashion pieces are bound to be around for quite some more time, they are worth investing in to ensure you get a high quality piece that will last for many wears. Here are a few trend-proof fashion pieces to invest in right now.
A blazer is without a doubt one of the most trend-proof pieces of clothing worth investing in. Perhaps one of the best attributes of the blazer is its versatility: blazers can be dressed down with a T-shirt and jeans, or dressed up with formal pants and skirts. While a well-fitted and tailored blazer is flattering on any occasion, a loose and oversized blazer (or even a blazer dress) can be a major fashion statement. Choosing a neutral color will ensure your blazer will match a variety of outfits, but you can’t go wrong with black.
The trench coat dates way back to the 1850’s and was invented by British luxury clothing manufacturers Burberry and Aquascutum. The trench not only is sophisticated and aesthetic, but also is a functional layer to protect from the elements in the spring and fall. A trench is traditionally found in a camel color, but other neutral colors, such as black and white, are a great option to match any outfit.
High quality denim in pant or jacket form is an investment piece that can get even better with age and wear. We don’t need to tell you how useful and versatile denim is, but it’s worth mentioning that you should invest in a piece that has a simple style so it will last through the trends. For example, avoid holes or unique patchwork and stick with a basic style and cut.
A white blouse, whether tailored or loose, is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe, and if you invest in a high quality piece you can be wearing it for years to come. Perhaps the best part about a simple white blouse is that it can be truly transformed by the rest of the outfit. You could wear it every week in a different style and no one would be the wiser. When selecting your white blouse pay attention to the fabric: linen and cotton poplin are both high quality fabric options.
A classic pair of black heels can be used in so many occasions, from attending a wedding to nailing a job interview. Go for a simple pair with a pointed toe and thin heel to elongate the leg and match nearly everything. Remember that comfort is important, so aim for practicality and don’t overdo it on the heel height. A material like faux leather or patent leather is easy to keep clean, as opposed to a suede.
Spending money on fashion can be done in a strategic way if you invest in trend-proof pieces that will be used often and will remain fashionable for a long time. Not only are these pieces smart investments, but also they are a great way to elevate your wardrobe and class up your overall look. Who knows, they could still be in style a hundred years from now!
