We don't have to tell you that trends come and go. By now you've already invested in (and regretted buying) "must-have" items. You know those pieces you've probably only ever dared to wear in public once -- if at all. Just ask your light-up sneakers and woven ponchos.
It's an unfortunate side effect of fast fashion. The common misconception is that being in style means you have to abide by what's coming down the catwalk. Instead, there are a number of timeless classics that can keep you looking chic year after year.
Wardrobe essentials all have one common denominator: they're basic. No, not that "
". Instead the major focus is on shapes and styles that are simple, but wholly sophisticated.
From white lace-up sneaks, dark wash denim, and of course, the LBD, these are the pieces you should be dishing out on.
Your wardrobes will thank you.
