TRENDS THAT NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE

Fashion is something constantly evolving, however fashion trends are something that has a tendency to come back around. I’ve picked out some trends that are absolute timeless classics that will never go out of style. When it comes to purchasing items, I personally think investing in classic pieces rather than fad items. Investing means different things to different people – to one person, it may mean spending £45 on jeans in Topshop and to another person it may mean spending £200 in Diesel.  As with anything, you’re not necessarily going to like everything, just because it’s a timeless piece, for example I’m not a fan of animal print, but I guess we take everything with a pinch of salt!

| THE WHITE SHIRT & TROUSER
An easy to wear outfit is the classic white shirt and trousers. You can determine how formal or informal it is depending on how you style and incorporate different elements into it. For a more casual look, you could swap the fitted trousers for a pair of jeans – swap the large bag for a clutch and chuck on a statement necklace and you’re ready to go! It’s so versatile and is one that I’ve personally worn for nights out and even a job interview (and I got the job btw). It’s a basic essential wardrobe outfit, but one that can be adapted to various different styles and preferences.


| THE ANIMAL PRINT
This isn’t one I have personally jumped on the bandwagon with, but it’s most definitely one I can appreciate, particularly when subtly incorporated. Leopard print is one of the most renowned forms of animal print, although one that is often downplayed is zebra print. Incorporating animal print doesn’t have to be garish enough to make you looking like Kat Slater, but by injecting pops of it in a relatively neutral outfit makes it the focal point whilst not being in your face and overbearing.

| THE OVERSIZED ACCESSORY
When it comes to accessories, oversized sunglasses are one of those that will always be in style whether it was 20 years ago or in 20 years to come. There’s nothing better than throwing on a pair of huge shades when you can’t be bothered to do a full face of makeup and want to let your skin breathe. This is one of my favourite timeless trends and there’s something chic about an oversized accessory – very Victoria Beckham esque! My current favourite pair of sunglasses is from Miu Miu and I’ve also been a huge fan over sized prescription glasses too! On the subject of oversized accessories, adding an oversized bag to the equation is not only trendy, but also practical. If you’re someone who wants to appear smaller, this is a perfect way to do that as it’s said that having an oversized bag can make you appear smaller than you are!

| THE TAILORED FIT
There’s nothing worse than have ill-fitting clothes and the tailored fit is another one of those pieces that would fit in everyone’s outfit. The bare skeleton of this is a fitted blazer. This is another versatile piece that can be transformed depending on the occasion albeit with a plain crew or V-neck tee for a casual vibe or a fitted shirt. The second part to this fit is tailored trousers of which there are many variations starting off with the pinstripe trouser suit and the cigarette trousers etc. Pairing such an outfit with a simple pair of court heels or smart ballerina flats, a smart top and smart bag really finishes off this outfit.


| THE ‘DO
There are many hair do’s that will never go out of style, however one of my favourites has got to be the short bob. Ever since Rihanna’s signature look back in ’07 I’ve always loved this hairstyle! This is another trend that can be switched up depending on your preference whether it be a change in parting, straight or curly, the cut and much more (at the end of the day, I’m not a hairdresser by any means).

What’s your favourite trend?
