Let’s be honest; trying to keep up with the numerous fashion ideas and trends in 2020 can be financially draining. You’ll find yourself buying expensive articles of clothing that would cease to be fashionable in a few months to come. And that’s not a smart move. 

So if you’ve been spending your money needlessly, I have a solution for you.

Do you know you can still be fashionable every season without having to give away an arm and a leg? Better still, you don’t even have to buy new clothes to look stylish.

The Holy Grail you’re looking for is in timeless fashionable pieces that don’t go out of style. Here are ten timeless pieces you should always have in your wardrobe.

When you hear the word blazer, what comes to mind? A type of jacket?… True. A classic fashion outfit?… True. A modest answer to office style?… Not anymore. Blazers are popping on the street fashion scene. No wonder it is a go-to fashion staple for most bloggers, celebrities, and fashion influencers. 

Indeed, a blazer is an indispensable, classic, and timeless fashionable piece of clothing. That’s right – the piece that complements and transforms other items of clothing.

You can pair a blazer with just anything. You can pair it with slouchy boots or pair it with a simple tee and jeans. Also pair a pastel blazer over a printed dress… you name it. It looks good on everything from work clothes to casual hangouts.

However, if you want your blazer to give you that desired body shape, you have to take note of the blazer’s length and the location of the button. An ill-fitting blazer won’t exactly help you to keep up with the seemingly ever-changing fashion trends in 2020.

For length

The perfect blazer ends at hip length. Other fashionable blazer designs end below the hip line, but not everyone can carry it perfectly. You also don’t want to buy a hit and miss blazer, do you?.

The button’s position and the blazer’s overall fitting are vital factors to consider as well. Curvier women look better in blazers with higher placed buttons, while women with streamlined bodies look better in blazers with lower buttons.

For size

The wrong sized blazer will make you look unflattering and uncomfortable. There are several blazer styles with flattering features for the right body shape. So make sure it fits before you buy it!

Trench Coat

I fell in love with Trench suits when the Olsen twins wore matching coats that one time they played detectives.

If you think really hard, you won’t find a time when trench coats were considered unfashionable. The trench is still a stylish piece of outerwear in a stylish wardrobe.

Representing a peculiar cool, simple, sexy feel with hints of manliness, the trench is a staple piece you want to have in your closet forever.

There is nothing like a trench coat to give you a look synonymous with style. Elegant and timeless, there isn’t any garment quite like the trench. Make sure you get comfortable ones that give you some arm space.

White T-shirt

What is a wardrobe without a white T-shirt? If you don’t have one, then you’ve made a gross fashion mistake. What makes a white T-shirt classic and timeless? Well, for one, white T-shirts have been around for a long time, and they’re still in fashion. It’s safe to guess that they would always be.

White tees are so versatile that you can wear them for different events. All you need for a fashion-forward look accessory – just a few, though. For instance, you can pair your white t-shirt with a jacket, leggings, tennis shoes, and sunglasses for a simple, comfortable, no-fuss outfit. It’s a great fashion idea and staple.

Little Black Dress (LBD)

Of all the fashion idea must-haves, the little black dress is the most versatile.Everything you’ve heard about the black dress is true – it does save the day. Who travels without a little black dress? Not me, and you shouldn’t.

But why does the little black dress have the wardrobe MVP status? It’s simple. The LBD potentials for reinvention are endless. For starters, it is an appropriate outfit for several situations — especially those unanticipated last-minute events. It will always come to your rescue every time.

With the right jewelry, heels, makeup, and other accessories, you’ll find various uses for this exclusive must-have.

Dark Wash Jeans

Yea sure, you have jeans. However, if they aren’t dark wash jeans, you don’t have a timeless fashion piece.

The wash adds the perfect amount of shine, and most people often mistake them for trousers. A skinny jean or cropped kick-flare will allow you to display your statement heels without hemming them.

In all, dark wash jeans will always be in vogue, so make sure you stock up this wardrobe staple. Boot-cut, skinny jeans or high rise straight Jean are all great pieces as long as they are in dark jeans.

Button-Up Shirts

Most people think that you either look good in a button-up shirt or you don’t. The simple yet elegant button-up shirt is a closet staple. No wonder celebrities wear them in white and in various colors. Even executives consider button-up shirts a part of their work uniform.

With skirts, jeans, or shorts, these shirts add a bit of elegance to even the most casual outfits. Match with bracelets and statement for a chic and smart look.

Riding Boots
