Adding accessories to an outfit can be a great way to add some spice to your look looks. With a bunch of accessories you can find on local stores, high streets, and designer boutiques, most of them are trendy and fashion forward that will only last for a season. On the other hand, there are also some classic accessories, worthy of investing in, that you will be able to wear forever because they will never go out of style. Check out our list to get some clues on what to look for.
- Pearl Jewelry
Pearl jewelry is often handed down from generation to generation as they never go out of style. If pearls are your thing, you can’t go wrong investing in a strand that you can wear all sorts of ways. Whether it’s a necklace, a pair of earrings, or stack of bracelets, pearls can add a classic touch to whatever outfit you’re wearing. For a modern way of wearing your pearls, copy fashion blogger Blair Eadie’s style of wearing her pear; necklace with her silver and gold bangles that broke the so-called accessorizing rule and made her fashion style personalized and stylish.
- Diamond Jewelry
While haute couture earrings along with a bold necklace can be a bit much, diamond jewelry is not because it’s classic and versatile enough. Whether you’re wearing a real diamond or crystal stone, you can wear them to add some luxurious touch to your dressy or casual outfit as they make a statement without stealing the show. For times when you want to wear a bold necklace, try going easy on the earrings with your diamond studs. But, be careful not to go too big or else they won’t look classic.
- Leather Gloves
Everyone needs at least one pair of leather gloves in their wardrobe as basic colors like black, cognac, white, or brown, will always look classic and perfect for chilly seasons of fall and winter. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, feel free to wear your leather gloves with classic coats, structured jackets and tweed blazers, as well as brightly colored bags to show the elegance of your accessories.
- Classic Scarf
A classic silk scarf, fur scarf, and even knit scarf may be expensive but you will have the style in your wardrobe forever. Like Kristina Bazan, you may use your fur scarf to add some texture and dimension to your monochromatic outfits. If you’re not comfortable wearing silk scarves on your neck, then simply wear it on your bag to add some pop of color perfect for your neutral colored bags without prints and patterns.
- Classic Sunglasses
Classic sunglasses with flattering frame shape and size for your face can also last for a lifetime. You don’t have to splurge on many designer sunglasses. If you have one pair of sunglasses that perfectly flatter your face shape, then it’s a great thing than having a bunch of trendy sunglasses that you’ll only wear for some seasons. Oversized, aviator, retro, and even cat-eyes tend to look outdated after sometime so stick to the classic one that you’ll wear forever.
- Classic Watch
You can have fun with watches, but having a style that is classic and timeless will never fail you. Like Kristina Bazan, go for a classic timepiece with leather or a metal strap that won’t tarnish or fade easily. If you already know that you’re an acidic person, then go for watches with all solid stainless, gold, or silver metal. This way, you’ll keep your watch stylish and fashionable even for decades as it won’t go out of style. A style like a chronograph will always be fashionable and elegant.
- Classic Bag
You can have lots of fun with your handbags by choosing fun and trendy styles. However, if you are looking to invest in a bag that will work with any outfits in your wardrobe, consider a structured bag or a classic satchel in neutral shades. Flashy colors of neon yellow, bright red, lime green, as well as loud prints like abstract and geometric will likely to fade after some seasons. On the other hand, neutral shades of black, white, camel, gray, as well as animal prints, checks, houndstooth and such will never go out of style.
- Nude Pumps
Though a pair of classic black pumps is considered as the most timeless footwear investment, a classic pair of nude pumps can be a means of adding some inches to your stature visually at the same time timeless and classic like a pair of black pumps. Try wearing them a little black dress, brightly colored outfit, trendy outfit, as well as monochromatic outfit that looks much more elegant and chic.
- Classic Hat
Whether it’s a fedora, wide-brimmed, or a floppy, your hat can be your perfect pick when it gets sunny outside. Just go for the classic shades of black, white, camel, burgundy, navy, and such colors that look timeless. However, be careful wearing white and black especially if you have a pale complexion as it may look unflattering for you. Instead, pick the shade that will bring out the best on you and stay classic with timeless accessories with your classic outfits.
