While specific fashion trends come and go, some wardrobe staples always stay in style. Having classic fashion in your closet is the best way to ensure you always look polished and put together.
So, what defines classic fashion? It is any garment or accessory traditionally flattering and has been in style for a long time.
The Little Black Dress
Depending on the situation, it may be dressed up or down and is a classic wardrobe staple. The LBD is the ideal piece for every fashionista’s wardrobe.
While women have worn black clothing since the Victorian and Georgian eras, Coco Chanel brought it into the mainstream with her elegant designs. She designed dresses for day, cocktail hour, and evening wear with simple silhouettes that could be paired with jewelry.
The LBD has continued to evolve, from long-sleeved lace to mini skirts in the 1960s and 1980s. It was also popular in the grunge culture of the 1990s when designers created dresses with flutter sleeves and elbow cutouts. The current trends of bare shoulders and one-shoulder silhouettes show this classic style is here to stay.
The Leather Jacket
The leather jacket is one of the most classic pieces of clothing that will never go out of style. Military personnel, rock stars, and other celebrities have worn it. It has become a symbol of American culture and a sign of masculinity.
Leather is a rigid, durable material that holds up well over time. It is also wrinkle-resistant and resists stains. It is easy to clean and maintain.
Many leather jackets or clothes at Janie & Jack are available for men and women. The most popular styles include the bomber leather jacket, moto jacket, and oversized jacket. There are also many colors, including black, brown, and tan.
There is likely a style ideal for you, whether you want a leather jacket to spruce up a casual outfit or go with jeans. Finding a high-quality leather jacket that will serve you well is essential.
Blazers defy time and fashion trends. They look just as elegant when worn over a T-shirt or shirt dress as they do with tailored trousers and a tie.
A blazer is meant to bridge the gap between sports coats and suit jackets in terms of informality, but it still has enough structure to be appropriate at work. That’s why it’s essential to find one that fits well and is made from a fabric that looks and feels premium.
It’s also worth investing in a high-quality cashmere sweater, as quality cashmere lasts forever and is versatile. It can be dressed up for a special occasion, travel, weekends, or hot chocolate by the fire.
Jeans are an essential wardrobe item that can be worn with almost anything. They go well with casual tops like T-shirts, cardigans, and formal blazers. Jeans come in a variety of styles to suit any body shape. For example, flared jeans look great on pear shapes, while slim-fit jeans will flatter hourglass and petite figures.
Historians are still determining the exact origin of jeans, but it is widely believed that they resulted from serendipity. During the mid-1800s, dungarees (waist overalls) were all the rage, but they were more sturdy and durable than jeans. Tailor Jacob Davis suggested adding copper rivets to the trousers, which helped them stand up to challenging gold mining work.
