Forever Fashion

We have brought you The Fall Must Haves Before They Sell Out, and now we also wanted to help you build a forever fashion wardrobe. Because we all feel better about splurging on a classic item you know you will get years or decades of wear out of! Then you can mix in the of-the-moment trends of the season. Invest in elevated, staples that fit perfectly and are made from fabrics that have lasting quality, because classic will always be in style!

The Trench

The trench is a timeless topper that most stylish women have in their closet for good reason! It is a piece you can pair with jeans and flats for a weekend look, or hang over your shoulders to elevate a evening look. This piece will put a classic twist on just about anything you already have in your closet. Asos Classic Trench {$97.00} // J-Crew Icon Trench {$298} // Burberry Kensington Trench {$1895.00}

Striped Shirt

A forever favorite, this is the “neutral” of the prints, (see How to Mixing Prints here).  You can effortlessly pair a striped shirt with everything from denim to sequins. The striped shirt gives a classic french girl look I love! TopShop {$28.00} // J-Crew {39.50} // Reclaimed Vintage Breton {$46.00}

Cropped Straight Pants

A pair of tailored and cropped, straight pants will never go out of style. You can dress them up with a jacket, blouse, and heels or down with a vintage T-shirt and sneaks. Show just a hint of ankle for a lasting look. Topshop {$38.00} // James Jeans {$198.00} // Joseph {$375.00}

White shirt with black blazer

A White Button Down

Borrowed from the boys, this dateless piece is a basic to invest in!  You will want a soft to the touch fabric. Use it as a topper, tie around your waist, wear solo, and layer it under sweaters. Crisp and clean shirting will always stand the test of time. Mango {$39.00} // Sea {$235.00} // Milly {$250.00}

The Blazer

A good blazer is an essential piece that adds a polished look to most any outfit you put together. Buy one now and wear forever! Topshop {$100.00} // J-Crew {$198.00} // Rag n Bone {$495.00}

Givenchy bag

LBD

The little black dress is a staple you will wear again and again. Find one that perfectly fits you, is not to short or shows too much cleavage, and never let it go! Completely change the look up with trendy shoes and accessories. Mango {$79.99} // Alice + Olivia {$368.00} // Herve Leger {$995.00}

Structured Bag

Handbags are definitely my favorite accessory, and I have a closet full to show it!  If your daily uniform is more jeans and a t-shirt, like mine, a structured bag will elevate that look! The structured bag will take you from day-to-night and be a travel must-have with its roomy inside and lady-like vibe. Clare V {$336.00} // MCM {$920.00} // Givenchy {$1950.00}

white dress and moto jacket

Day Dress

Choose your favorite color and silhouette for a go-to day dress. I love a classic and crisp, white shirtdress! If you want it to be able to transition from day-to-night with a change up of your shoe, choose a sophisticated clean-cut. Splendid {$138.00} // Rebecca Taylor {$275.00} // Burberry Brit {$650.00}

Moto-Jacket

If you don’t have a moto-jacket yet, put one at the top of your list!  This jacket will instantly add an edgy, cool factor to lace dresses, jeans and shorts. Either draped over your shoulders or worn, this piece will complete so many of your outfits! BLANKNYC {$128.00} // All Saints {$650.00} // Veda {$990.00}

silk skirt

Booties

A daily staple for sure!  The ultimate cool weather bootie is not just for weekend style either. You can dress them up or down, year around with summer dresses, denim shorts and skirts. Choose a comfortable heel height and neutral brown or black to get the most wear. Steve Madden {$89.00} // Via Spiga {$250.00} // Aquatalia {$450.00}

pointy toe pumps

Black Turtleneck

Cool weather’s go-to for layering! You can wear alone, with denim, or white pants, and a great belt, or layer under sleeveless dresses and jumpers for a next-level look. One of Jackie-O’s favorites! Chelsea28 {$49.00} // FRAME {$155.00} // Rag & Bone {$425.00}

Black Pointed Toe Pump

The black pump is an oldie but a goody!  Nothing adds polish and to an outfit quicker than adding a sexy, classic shoe. The usual choice is a stiletto, but with the block heels being so much more comfortable, I’m betting they are not going anywhere. So pick one that fits your foot well and you want to wear walking around! Sam Edelman {$120.00} // Stuart Weitzman {$395.00} // Manolo Blahnik {$595.00} //
