Every year, beautiful models parade down the catwalk sporting stylish new trends. Raised eyebrows and pleasant smiles are on the faces of the crowd as designers wait to see whether their latest fashionable creation will make it BIG in the marketplace.
When the hottest new trends hit the stores, many people run out to expand their wardrobe. However, others stick to the fashions they have grown to love. Although nobody wants to become the person who wears the fashions of the 80s when it’s actually 2016, there are some items which seem to never go out of style. We like to call these items “Fashion that is always in fashion.”
- Full Skirt and Basic Top
You can’t go wrong with this ensemble since it can be worn for just about any occasion. The full skirt creates a classic silhouette and can be paired with just about any top. These flowing skirts look great with a blouse, button-down shirt, a t-shirt or even a leather jacket. This trendy fashion choice has been around for decades.
- Large Sweater and Jeans
With the fall season just around the corner, you can expect to see large sweaters and jeans. You can bet this style isn’t going anywhere for those who live in areas of the country with colder weather. In fact, cold weather means a long sweater and your favorite jeans are just the ticket to staying warm. To bring a new look to this fashion choice, many people swap their usual jeans for high rise jeans, a different wash or a pair with a little wear and tear. Although boots or pumps can slightly change the style, this basic look is certainly a keeper.
- Animal Prints
Animal prints have been around since the 18th century. They are made up of neutral colors such as beige, brown and black so they can be worn with almost anything. Plus, they add a little wild kingdom to your look which can be very sexy. For instance, a throw-over on a black dress is a nice touch. However, animal print should be worn in small doses such as shoes, scarf, accessories or one clothing item per ensemble. Otherwise, it can look like the jungle devoured your style and that is not a good look.
- Floral Prints
Since flowers are seen as a symbol of a woman, floral prints have been popular with ladies for years. In fact, blossoms on printed clothing date back to the year 794 when it was found on Japanese kimonos. Floral prints make their way into fashion through scarves, tight knit leggings and tops. Want to mix and match floral patterns on your outfit? Go ahead! Just be sure there is one color, such as black or navy, which links both floral prints together.
During World War II, it wasn’t just the military that wore camouflage. Even civilians, including the ladies, began to wear government-issued trench coats. This style soon spread into various types of camouflage attire including army jackets, camouflage prints and cargo pants. However, if you are not in the military, camouflage is best worn as an outfit and not as a uniform. Therefore, a cute olive colored camouflage top with black slacks is a nice touch. You could also turn a casual outfit into a powerful statement with a camouflage accessory or two. Remember to keep it subtle or you will look like you are going to war with yourself.
