Classic getups that will never go out of style
Nothing moves quite so fast as fashion and what was hot last year is most certainly not this year. Trends change with the seasons and every stylist, designer and influencer has to keep up to scratch with the latest buzz or they risk being yesterday’s news.
We all have that moment when we look at an old outfit in a photo and ask ourselves, “What was I thinking?!” Some people argue that we need to reconsider entire decades and ask ourselves collectively, “What were we thinking?!” But while fashion faux pas is an inevitable thing as we grow and find our own style, there are some combinations that are timelessly cool; some trends that have long passed the test of time. In this article, we are going to look at three classic getups that will never go out of style.
A great-fitting pair of jeans and fresh-out-the-box sneakers
The first timeless getup, which is loved by men and ladies alike, is the jeans-sneaker combo. Everybody has a favourite pair of jeans that fit just right, that flatter from every angle and hugs all the right places. No matter what your style, whether you are a classic straight leg connoisseur, or like baggy styles to let you move, a great fitting pair of jeans is a wardrobe essential that never goes out of style.
Every major fashion designer on the planet has its own range of denim, but for a vintage look, nothing compares to Levis. Considered by many as the father of jeans, Levis has been supplying quality denim since way back in 1853, and let’s face it, if they were cool enough for cowboys, they are cool enough for us. To finish the look, there is nothing better than a brand new pair of sneakers fresh out of the box. The right colour will depend on the colour of your jeans and your own style preferences, but the jeans-sneaker combo is the peanut butter and jam of casual fashion.
A quality winter coat and scarf
Another getup for both the ladies and the gents is the winter-winner: the coat-scarf combo. There is no better feeling than when you get your winter coat out of the closet for the first time that year. A quality winter coat will feel just as good in its fifth winter as it did in its first. It is important to spend a bit of money on a coat because it can last a long time if cared for properly. Winter coats never go out of style, especially if you buy a classic like a peacoat or a smart full-length trench coat. Winter coats are so versatile that you can wear them over a suit during the week and then over a thick cable knit on the weekend. Plus, if you’re lucky, you may find a bit of loose change in the pocket from last winter.
Whatever day it is, matching your coat with a warm, stylish wool scarf is a great way to add colour and patterns to your outfit, especially as most winter coats are dark grey, navy or black. A good scarf not only keeps your neck warm but will keep you looking cool until springtime.
A little black dress and killer heels
The ultimate in glamour and sex appeal, the LBD-heels combo has been the getup of choice for ladies for decades. A staple of every woman’s closet, a little black dress is the iconic outfit for a night out. Versatile, sexy and glamorous, the little black dress is one fashion item that will never go out of style. There are as many cuts and styles as there are ladies in the world.
Killer heels are guaranteed to complete any drop-dead outfit and are another item that simply does not go out of fashion. Whether you are off to a fancy restaurant opening or hitting the dance floor with your girlfriends, your favorite LBD is guaranteed to have you feeling your sexiest and most confident all night long. Complete the look with a stylish purse and some killer heels and you are good to go!
Incredibly adaptable, heels can be worn with your favourite jeans or with a business suit, but the hands-down best getup is to pair them with a little black dress. The price of a pair ranges from your reliable everyday high street classics to the unicorn mythical unicorns of high heels, a pair of Jimmy Choos or Louboutins. Classic heels not only raise your height but they are guaranteed to raise your confidence, and leave you feeling fabulous every time you squeeze into them.
While fashion trends come and go like the seasons, there are some getups that will simply never go out of style. Check out the list above and if there is anything on there that isn’t your closet, it might be time to hit the shops.
