Three Ultimate Style Tips:  How to Stay Classic Yet Current

Three Ultimate Style Tips: How to Stay Classic Yet Current

When it comes to fashion, styles come and go (and return) faster than we can keep up. Especially with social media shrinking the trend life cycle of almost everything, something new and shiny starts "trending" until it becomes "viral," only to become completely obsolete in a month or two.
So the question looms: How do we stay current while remaining classic? This is something I ask myself a lot. After all, just because something is trending doesn't mean we should blindly engage with it simply to avoid looking dated.  
To help with this style paradox, I'm sharing three helpful tips, two inspiring quotes, and a question to consider.
Three Tips To Keep Your Style Current Yet Classic
  1. Modernize Classic Silhouettes: Update classic silhouettes with modern touches to keep your style fresh. For example, pair a tailored garment with denim or casual footwear, or layer a timeless button-up with a crewneck bodysuit underneath to add texture and casual elegance.
  2. Mix Classic with Trendy Pieces: Mix wardrobe staples with more current pieces. Sure, you caved and bought the super wide-leg trousers. Now pair it with a crisp button-down shirt in a classic cut to keep the proportions balanced and the look updated yet timeless.
  3. Focus on Timeless Colors and Fabrics: You can effortlessly balance classic and modern by prioritizing timeless colors and materials. Neutral hues like black, white, navy, and camel offer versatility and longevity, while natural, classic fabrics like cotton, wool, silk, and cashmere exude timeless elegance.
