When cleaning up my closet, my rule of thumb is to focus on quality and do more with less. I tend to preserve a lot of neutrals like black, navy, beige and whites done in clean, sharp lines. Trends come and go, but there’re good reasons I always look to these timeless, classic styles – they’re easy to match with, and create an elegant look. Though at times I combine them with other fashion personas for a little drama, I still mainly stick with the following:
We all know too well that you can’t go wrong with an LBD on date nights. Topped off with feminine details like the subtly sexy wrap front and accordion pleats, this style goes with the most dramatic of statement accessories and still manages to pull your look together.
Sexy yet sophisticated, well made and fitting like a glove, this bodycon dress can go from day (with a blazer or jacket) to night (with the topper off and more makeup on). I absolutely love the bateau neckline that effortlessly transcends the whole look.
This monochrome number fits well at the waist area and is a relaxed, fuss-free but still chic choice for winter. The ruffled hem and mid-thigh length match the flat heels that I most love.
Comprising a bodycon black skirt and a check bodice, this classy knit dress gives a slim appearance and fits any body type perfectly. The lightweight fabrication allows it to go from season to season, while long sleeves make it great for winter.
If I had to wear only one blouse this season, this would be my option. The neutral hue gives a refreshing mood through these darker months, while the delicate see-through detail makes me feel fabulous on dressed down days.
There isn’t a lot going on in this double-breasted coat, but the sharp tailoring brings some military styling to everyday wear. Again, simplicity is key to styles that last for years!
This ladylike pencil skirt is cleverly winterized with a sleek construction and flap pocket accents, which give it a dressier look. The accentuated waist and popping hue mean it’s great for complementing neutral separates.
A discussion on classic elegance can’t happen without a Coco Chanel-inspired tweed jacket. I’d pair it with skinny pants tucked into tall boots to easily elevate a casual day look.
I’m into ballet flats for essentially any occasion. This pair shall become my new necessity for the office and weekends, thanks to the sharp square toe and sleek woven look.
This sturdy pair of riding boots fits the mold of fashionable and functional perfectly. I’ve always been a big fan of quality equestrian boots. This edition fits just fine with skinny jeans and a tailored blazer for the weekend.
