“Fashion may come and go, but style is forever”-Yves Saint Laurent once said. These words couldn't be more true when it comes to shopping for timeless classics for our wardrobe. As much as we love the metamorphosis of the ever changing fashion industry, it is absolutely essential to include items which are ageless and will continue to look stylish, regardless of what’s in fashion at the time. We've compiled a dozen must have items in any women’s closet for autumn/winter, no matter how old you are.
Fitted blazers with a nipped in waist in your best colour- This is a must have staple in everyone's wardrobe. Versatile and practical, you can dress it up or down, and it will never go out of style. Wear it for work with a skirt, or with jeans for play.
Pencil skirts in neutrals-Slimming and elongating, pencil skirts look good on any body type. Wear them in colours which complement your skin tone.
A tailor fitted suit ensemble- It is worth getting a custom made suit tailored made exactly to fit your height and body type. If it makes you feel confident and professional, it would last you a good many years to come.
A lightweight belted trench coat - Your best friend for winter. This classic cut will never be out of fashion. The trench will help you stay warm, and you can wear it over absolutely anything!
A bright coloured woolen short or knee length coat- If you purchase a style you absolutely love, in a colour which flatters your hair, eye and skin colour, this will last you for many more winters to come.
Good quality elegant straight leg trousers- This cut flatters all body shapes, and goes with almost anything. Purchase a pair in a fabric which is easy to move in and flows nicely with your shape.
Multi-coloured cashmere, merino or cotton cardigans- These wrap ups can add a pop of colour to any outfit, whilst keeping you warm and cosy at the same time.
Simple clean line silk blouses- This soft, luscious fabric will keep you feeling comfortable the whole day. It's a great way to add colour and looks so good with a pencil skirt or under a blazer.
A lightweight wrap dress- A woman's best friend. Shows off your womanly curves in all the right places. The beauty of this design is its room for those few extra pounds you may have gained during the cold months.
A chic cocktail dress- Be it red, black or blue, invest in a cut which flatters your own body shape, highlighting your assets, concealing your flaws.
A pair of stretchy dark coloured slim cut jeans - Always make sure you own a pair of jeans with a little bit of spandex to show off your figure whilst remaining comfortable at the same time. Dark coloured denim can instantly make you look 5 pounds lighter too.
A pair of classic pointy toed pumps- This design will always remain in style due to its ability to lengthen a woman's leg, creating the illusion of a slimmer, elongated silhouette. Who could say no to that?
