Tips ~ What Dates and What Becomes Timeless

If you want to find pieces that will be more timeless and have longevity in your wardrobe, here are my tips to making your wardrobe timeless. The first is to purchase great quality fabrics such as fine wool, cashmere, silk and suede. Second, look for well constructed garments that are simple in their lines. Next, look for colors that are more subdued or neutral in color. Anything too bright will date more quickly. Always remember nothing extreme in the cut, such as large shoulder pads or exaggerated shapes. Lastly, garments that show off the body in a flattering manner without being extreme, not too boxy or baggy, but not too tight are the best. Here are some examples.
