There are certain fashion items that will forever be considered classics. The little black dress, for example, or a pair of figure-hugging skinny jeans. No wardrobe is complete without a selection of timeless designs that work for any occasion, season or location. But versatility needn’t be plain and boring. The above style staples all feature distinctive design details that set them apart from their simplistic equivalents.
Take the scallop edging on Topshop’s lightweight summer jacket, for instance. It gives the item a strong fashion focus, but could still be worn for years to come. The same can be said for Russell & Bromley’s dress flats (they feature just the right amount of bling) and Preen’s figure-hugging LBD. Invest in these items and you’ll be set for almost any event!
