5 Timeless Pieces to Buy Now

Guest Post: Samantha BraddyHigh Style Life

We live in a world of fast fashion where trends change from one week to the next, and people are reluctant to wear a piece that is so last season. This, however, has some advantages: We get to experiment with all the different styles and trends, but the question is – has it gone too far? No matter what the current trends are, there will always be timeless pieces that deserve a bigger investment and a special place in your wardrobe.

Shoes

Ladies, let’s be real: We don’t need nearly as many shoes as we have. A good everyday shoe, a classic high heel, a pair of sandals and something comfortable for casual sporty days – that’s all we actually need. When shopping for shoes, the most important things you should be on a lookout for are comfort and quality. The best pair of shoes won’t do you any good if you can’t wear them for more than an hour, and comfort isn’t worth much if the shoe is going to fall apart after the first rain. Of course, make sure you like them and would love to wear them often.

Coats

Imagine the situation: You are getting ready for an important event, you have your entire outfit put together, perfect hair and makeup, all of the accessories in place – and then you put a ski jacket on top of it all. Not a situation you would want to find yourself in, right? Get a good coat in a neutral color that will go with any outfit and don’t be afraid to wear it. Even if you have a casual everyday outfit underneath, a good coat will elevate your look to new heights.

A Little Black Dress

Perfect for any occasion and guaranteed to stay in style for many years to come, a little black dress is the one thing that every woman should have in her closet. Depending on your body shape and comfort level, you can go with a midi or a mini dress, bodycon, shift or skater style. Try to keep the print (if there is any) plain, and add some flavor through the cut: one-strap, off-the-shoulder, halter-neck or similar cuts will add some style while still keeping the dress appropriate for all occasions.

Bags

If you ask any woman on the street which is the most expensive part of her outfit, the majority of them will reply the bag. There is a very good reason for that: A good bag will last you for decades. Getting classic, timeless pieces, like the ones made of vegan leather by Urban Originals, is a smart investment because they can complete every outfit and be your go-to piece for so many occasions. Really all you need is a good bag for every day and a clutch to go along with fancier outfits and special occasions.

Jewelry

No outfit is ever complete without accessories. And all the different, cheap, rhinestone-bedazzled pieces will never be able to stand up to a single silver or gold bracelet, a simple, high-quality pendant on a thin chain and a good ring. There is a time when every woman should turn away from the various childish, sparkly pieces and commit to high-quality jewelry which will elevate her outfit in an instant.

These pieces are something that should be the core of your wardrobe, and everything should be built around them. If you are lacking any of these pieces, put shopping for other things on hold until you check these off the list and add them to your collection. You will find yourself feeling more confident in your outfits and always having the right thing to complement any combination will make you feel carefree.
