The New Classics: Update your wardrobe with these staples
Posted on April 08 2021
We like to stick to the classics- shapes, fabrics, things we know work and flatter our body. Every season or so, a new style will become trendy or “in”, then it will phase out. But some of those styles stick around because they are that good.
Today, I’m sharing 4 styles that have been very “in” the past few seasons, and we don’t see them going anywhere.
The Wide Leg Pant. The wide leg pant is here to stay! We can’t get enough of the fitted waist, wide leg silhouette. We love the Ryland Camo Pants for a more casual vibe. They hit just above the ankle so are super flattering and make it fun to show off a shoe. The Fairfax Trouser is another favorite for it’s silky, slinky feel and gorgeous coral blush color. Pair either style with a cami and blazer or tee shirt to tone it down.
Petite, Gold Hoops. We’ve long been a fan of Bent by Courtney’s creations, and her latest collection is our very favorite. She hits the nail on the head with her gold hoop collections- The Millie, Flora & Nora in three sizes. Our go-to for everyday is the smallest size. A small, gold hoop is a forever classic, but she gives a fun twist to each style with details such as milgrain, floral etching, and gold dots along the hoop. We wear these petite hoops with anything and everything! They compliment workout gear just as well as a cocktail dress.
The Crop Top. Before you roll your eyes, we don’t mean stomach-showing crop. We’re crazy about a top that hits just below the ribs with a high-waisted pant- i.e. our Crop Top with Fairfax Trouser. We also love something a little longer, but still considered crop, that hits at the top of the hip bone. I personally love this length because it’s long enough to cover my belly, but short enough to show a defined silhouette. (Longer tops that hit right at the hips tend to be unflattering.) The Neon Lip Teeis my favorite to pair with jeans or shorts.
A Small, Structured Bag. A structured bag has been a classic and a wardrobe staple since the beginning of fashion. This season, we’re into a mini version, and it’s definitely here to stay. The Mini William bag by J.Lowery is absolutely adorable, but still fits all your necessities. It has a shoulder strap for versatility, and we love the dove blue python for a fun take on a great mini classic!
