Fashion trends come and go, and if you’re too busy to follow them all, it might be a bit confusing once you decide to revamp your wardrobe or catch up. Besides, some people don’t have enough energy or interest to keep track of every Instagram post or hashtag which, in today’s age of social media, makes the following trends a bit tiring and sometimes difficult. Luckily, there are certain fashion elements and trends that never go out of style, so if you’re looking to spruce up your clothes, these are the safe choices that will make you look stylish in all circumstances:
1. Jeans, always jeans
Jeans are a staple clothing item that’s been part of our wardrobes for almost 70 years now. The only thing that keeps changing is the types of jeans we wear, so nowadays we’re more into wearing high-waist jeans that can be great when you need to cover some extra tummy fat and accentuate your waist and butt. This is actually great, especially since it aligns well current body positivity trend, as not all body types are equally capable of wearing low-rise jeans and looking good while doing so. The easiest way to keep yourself up to date is to simply pay attention to what people around you wear since nowadays almost everyone prefers to wear high and mid-waist rise jeans, and in case you don’t have time to pay attention, simply google the latest jeans trends so you’ll know what to buy next time. Jeans are versatile piece of clothing, therefore it makes sense why they never go out of style.
2. Converse Chuck Taylors
Back in the day, these were exclusively tailored towards alternative subcultures, but nowadays they’re favored and worn by pretty much anyone. Their long-lasting popularity is mainly due to the neutral design that allows you to wear them with jeans, tracksuits, skirts, dresses, and shorts. Even though sneakers have become increasingly popular among fashion influencers, Chuck Taylors have earned their top place thanks to their unique design that makes them distinguishable among different types of sports shoes.
3. Retro pieces, mostly glasses
One thing that certainly never goes out of style are retro pieces. We’re all a bit nostalgic by nature, and fashion brands know that which is why they keep resurrecting trends of the past. Ten years ago, classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses came back in all their glory, and they haven’t left since. Retro pieces are a sure way to remind ourselves of the fashion of the past, and of course, introduce younger generations to things that used to be popular back when their parents were young. Another reason why retro pieces, a lot of them being glasses, are getting more and more well-known is, of course, their sustainability and exceptional design. Additionally, vintage clothes and accessories have become more and more prominent, so it’s not uncommon to see low-end brands making their lookalike versions of unique pieces that were iconic in the past.
4. Simple and elegant pieces
A simple white shirt and an elegant tweed jacket will definitely never go out of style as they’re classic and can be worn on different occasions, which is why they’re so favorable among people of different ages and occupations. Similarly, wearing a chic patterned jumpsuit can be a great replacement for a dress, especially if you need to attend a special event that requires a more elegant attire. Years ago, jumpsuits were reserved for androgynous music legends such as Freddie Mercury and David Bowie, but nowadays they’re mostly worn by almost anyone who loves fashionable pieces that can be worn as dresses but are quite different at the same time.
5. A little black dress
Invented by one and only Coco Chanel, and popularized by lovely Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” this gorgeous piece of clothing has earned its fame for a great reason. It’s elegant, simple and so amazingly timeless. In addition, it can be worn in various occasions, from fancy dinner parties to formal meetings. Since it’s so versatile, it can be matched with different clothes and accessories, so for example, if you need to attend a formal event you match your LBD with a tailored blazer, and if you’re going to dinner, then it’s best to add a statement necklace or a silk scarf to achieve an ultimate classic and stylish look.
Some fashion trends never go out of a style for a reason: they’re easy to combine with trendy pieces, which makes them perfect staple clothing pieces. Investing in a quality pair of jeans and a white shirt will make sure you always have something to wear, that will surely help you look effortlessly chic no matter what.
