If you are looking to invest in quality, well-made clothing that will stand the test of time, you might also be worried about purchasing clothes that will not be in fashion three to five years from now. This, however, should not stop you from avoiding fast fashion. We have compiled a list of three fashion trends that are classic, timeless and will always be in style so that you can update your wardrobe with ethically-made items.
Knee-high boots used to be the norm in men’s fashion and then they became more à la mode in women’s fashion too. And since, they stood the test of time. Throughout the past seven decades they can be found in high-fashion magazines. Synonymous with equestrian style, knee-high boots are versatile and sturdy. Buying yourself a nice pair of leather or vegan leather knee-highs will help you complete outfits for years to come.
In the winter you can wear them with tights and a long or short dress or skirt and in the summer, simply lose the tights and pair them with a light-weight dress. If you’re worried about styling these boots with certain outfits, don’t be! Anyone who knows how to tune a guitar or to change a flat tire can find trendy looks to accompany these timeless shoes.
The black on black combination is perhaps the oldest one in the book. It is not only a fail-safe look that will always help slim your figure and give you a more refined look, it is also never not in style! Think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s or of iconic red carpet looks, what do they all have in common? An unabashed layering of black on black.
This timeless color works for all seasons. The advantage of wearing black outfits in the summertime is this color’s ability to hide any sweat stains you might have. It is perfect for winter as well because you can add layers underneath it for extra warmth and it will naturally hide any creases or bumps the extra fabric might have created. Black on black will never let you down or go out of style!
Light-weight, fast drying and soft, linen is one of the oldest materials known to mankind and is a textile that is made from flax. It’s quite a sought-after material, especially in hotter climates thanks to its breathable qualities. What’s more, linen is a renewable and eco-responsible fabric which means that not only will it not go out of style, but you’re not harming the environment by wearing it. Adding a linen button-down or a pair of linen slacks to your wardrobe will allow you to dress up your outfit while not compromising comfort or style.
