HOW TO CREATE A TIMELESS LOOK

HOW TO CREATE A TIMELESS LOOK

Whether you’re dressing up or dressing casually, the right pieces will always help you to create a timeless look. Firstly, having all the wardrobe staples every woman needs, will help you considerably when creating classic style.

AVOID COMPLICATED LOOKS

The essence of timeless style is that it transcends time and trends and is made up of pieces that never look dated. We’ve all had those “what were we thinking?” moments, when looking at old photos and seeing what we once wore. But it is a great feeling when you can look at an old photo, smile and not only love your look but be inspired to wear it again in the present day. A general rule of thumb is that, unless it’s for a special occasion, if you would struggle to wear it at least one a week with various other items in your wardrobe to create a different look, it’s most likely not a timeless piece.

CHOOSING WARDROBE STAPLES

This effortless outfit is a fabulous fashion flashback from wearing flares for spring and it still provides current day style inspiration. It features a classic ivory shirt that you can transition between casual and workwear, flattering blue high-waisted jeans with a classic bootcut leg and a black cropped leather jacket that is universally flattering, comfortable and safe. The way clothing hangs on you makes a difference. While a figure-hugging bandage dress might be a trend, it isn’t likely to be a classic. Clothing that fits you naturally and flatters your figure elegantly without revealing too much, is a timeless option.

COLOUR CHOICE & PICKING PRINTS

Colours and prints make an enormous difference when it comes to creating timeless style, but that shouldn’t always mean playing it safe. You’re more likely to reach for pieces that make you feel great every time you wear them. But pieces in zebra print are unlikely to work all the time and you’ll be forced to bypass it. Stick to more solid colours than wild prints. Ultimately, it’s about making some amazing fashion investments that will keep you elegant through the ages.

ACCESSORIES MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Whether you use a faux fur scarf and nude tote bag to dress up your look or a necklace and bracelet, keep your accessories minimal. It’s ok to have gold overload on occasion but for timeless classic looks, less is more.
