We often wonder what makes something ‘classic’ – when does something going from being ‘trendy’ and ‘in’ for now – to being ‘in’ forever! The trouble with this…is that there isn’t really a formula that we can follow or look to…to make that distinction – but I usually notice a few things…that help me decide when something makes the ‘cut’ 😉
Trench coats are one of those things that are always in – always a classic! The reason why I think trenches are true winter classics…is because they usually have very clean lines, and simple in overall look. They tend to be easy on the eyes!
High Boots are always a great winter classic – they have always been ‘in’ – the ones that I think are much more ‘classic’ in look are again clean – usually something that doesn’t have a lot of buckles on it – and is either lose or tight around the leg. This is look always works and is one way to look ‘put-together’.
Low boots are always ‘in’ as well – they are a good way to stay stylish and warm in the winter – but to not feel overwhelmed by the size of the boot. The most classic ones will likely be flat, as they are the easiest go-to boot – one that is most likely comfortable and still stylish…but low boots can also be heeled and still look classic. I usually like to go with straight leather ones or suede boots – in a classic colour/shade – grey, black, brown.
Scarves are always in – they can dress up or dress down an outfit – depending on what look you are going for! If you want the upscale look – you can go with one of those smaller silk scarves and tie it closely to your neck…but if you want to keep it more casual…usually best to go with a plain and simple cashmere scarf – something that is again classic in colour as well – black, grey, brown.
Stylish hats have been ‘in’ forever – hats really have the ability to pull together a whole outfit. They definitely make a statement and would catch the eye of everyone in the room! For women especially – they really have the ability to give her a bit of masculinity…while also maintaining her femininity.
