Many of us that love fashion will likely enjoy a timeless wardrobe full of timeless fashion pieces. However, this can be difficult to achieve with seasons, new trends, and a change in style.
Should you wish to achieve a timeless wardrobe that can suit you for all seasons, moods, occasions, and style preferences, here’s how.
Choose timeless jewelry
Jewelry is one of those things that is personal. Each person will have their jewelry preference, from metal types to colors and styles. However, choosing timeless pieces that suit every occasion and style will ensure you invest your money wisely and wear the piece repeatedly.
For instance, you could ask for and invest in a hexagon engagement ring instead of a traditional square or oval ring to attain something unique and special. Although all engagement rings are special, there is something personable about a different shape diamond. A timeless and unique piece will never feel old or uninspiring to wear.
Choose pieces to suit your shape
For example, a long draping dress might hang too much if you have a petite frame with a tiny waist. A petite midi figure-hugging dress might make you look and feel your best. Choosing the right pieces will ensure you get the most wear from them.
Quality over quantity
Like most things in life, when trying to create a timeless wardrobe, investing in quality over quantity is always beneficial.
Investing in quality pieces will mean they will last longer and feel nicer to wear. Instead of buying four tops, buy one for the same price and notice how good it feels and looks when you wear it.
Unless you are adamant about wearing bright colors year-round, it can be safer to opt for neutral colors as these will match easily.
White shirts, beige trousers, black skirts, and grey jumpers are all things you can wear with multiple items. If you purchase a bright red jumper, you might find it more seasonal and/or difficult to match with other garments and colors. You can always add color to your outfits with colorful shoes or accessories.
If you want to maximize the timelessness and efficiency of your wardrobe, it is smart to buy lighter layers. This will allow your wardrobe to be trans-seasonal. Instead of putting away your summer tops and switching them for jumpers, you can wear more layers to keep warm in the cold weather.
This doesn’t mean you can’t buy summer tops and jumpers. Investing in neutral pieces will ensure you get the most wear.
As well as layers, you will want to invest in underlayers for when it does turn cold. Instead of putting away your short skirts and dresses, you can style them with tights and keep warm.
There are certain shoes that will work wonders for a timeless wardrobe. Winter boots and summer sandals are a must in every wardrobe, so don’t skimp on those. You will want to keep your feet cool or warm depending on the weather.
Yet, investing in flat shoes and trainers will ensure you have shoes you can wear year-round, no matter the weather.
Care for your clothes the right way
When you invest in high-quality clothes, you will want to learn how to care for them. A lack of care might result in you ripping the material in a tumble drier (if it isn’t tumble drier friendly) or losing the color of the garment.
For expensive pieces, it can be worthwhile to find an expert laundrette so that you know your pieces are in good hands.
Stop following the trends and buying unnecessary things
The biggest mistake to avoid is following the trends. If you follow trends, you will forever be purchasing new items to align with the current style. Therefore, if you avoid following trends and stick with the pieces in your wardrobe, you will avoid overspending and cramming too much into your wardrobe.
If you love some trends and find them timeless (that you will wear repeatedly), go for them. There is no harm in buying new things. But, when you do buy new things, ensure to make it an investment and ensure you will wear it repeatedly.
