Fashion is a capricious beast, and we all have seen or indulged in flash-in-the-pan trends that are here today and gone tomorrow. As Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” The iconic designer, with some of the most timeless creations of her name, couldn’t have been more right. But, classic style truly does stand the test of time. When you’re cleaning your wardrobe of all of those “what was I thinking about?” moments, the surest way to solve a problem is to buy “eternal” things that will not lose their relevance after a season, two or even three.
- The White T-shirt
Everyone should have at least one amazing white tee in their closet that can pair with everything from jeans to suits.
- The Black Leather Jacket
There is something about a black leather jacket that really never gets old. A structured moto adds just the right touch of badass edginess to an outfit for those chilly nights when you need a cool way to stay warm. While you may think that the biker-inspired coat is too trendy, it really has become nothing short of a versatile classic that works with everything from a 9-to-5 look to weekend street style and even a cocktail dress. Just don’t go too overboard on the jacket’s bells and whistles; a few zippers and an asymmetrical silhouette are fine. Buckles, bling, and fringe may push it over the edge.
- The Trench Coat
Trench – the thing is always relevant. The main thing is that it should be monotonous and suitable for you hue. It can also be worn as a dress or as a jacket in combination with trousers. For this reason, do not be afraid to purchase it at a discount, because you can wear it all year round.
- The little black dress
The little black dress is really like a magic wand. Its iconic power cannot be underestimated, as it can take you from day to night, corporate office to cocktail party, sporty to sexy, and conservative to eye-catching — and everything in between — all in the blink of an eye (and a change of shoe, jacket, or accessory). A sleek, sophisticated silhouette that flatters your frame is the most important thing to consider when selecting your own black frock. Those three letters are, after all, some of the most important ones in the style alphabet.
- The perfect-fitting jeans
A pair of jeans that fit flawlessly is your best friend for life.
Denim trousers are for all seasons. The most classic version is Levi 501 Jeans.
- The Pumps

- The Wayfarer sunglasses
Perhaps one of the most recognizable sunglasses styles, the original Ray-Ban Wayfarers debuted in 1952 and have had it made in the shade ever since. Classic yet oh-so cool, the iconic frame shape always makes a statement that’s retro yet modern at the same time. Plus, the sunglasses really pair well with anything and can go from sleek to sporty in a flash. The black frames are the most traditional, but if you’re looking for a twist on tradition, change up the color palette or go for a different lens treatment like a gray gradient or crystal green.
- The white button-up
Even if you’re not required to wear business attire on the daily, a crisp button-up shirt can still be your best friend. It’s a foundation piece for many an ensemble and it never really loses its classic appeal — no matter if you’re layering it with a traditional suit or pairing it with a long, breezy skirt for a tailored contrast to that boho vibe.
- The cashmere sweater
The luxe nature of good cashmere is an enjoyment that’s always in style. The hair of the Kashmir goat is incredibly soft yet also lightweight and versatile, making it the perfect fit for that sweater that’s suited for a chilly day. Because cashmere is such a classic, it’s best to invest in a higher quality piece that will carry you through season after season. Sweaters in solid, neutral colors and designed in simple shapes, without any buttons, bells, or whistles will serve you best.
- The White Sneakers
Sneakers have long ceased to be shoes only for sports and everyday life. They are worn at social events and even being collected.
