Fashion: Secrets of timeless style

Simple, elegant lines

Simple and elegant lines flatter your body like this off-shoulder tunic top that skims the body.

Neckline focus

V necklines, portrait necklines are cuts that emphasize femininity and décolletage. One of the first steps to building a timeless wardrobe is to choose clothes that look great on you; flattering necklines are key because they bring attention to your face and décolletage.



Monochromatic looks

Head-to-toe black or monochromatic looks are universally flattering. You don’t necessarily have to wear black to get the chic effect, although darker colors are the most slimming. For maximum flattery you should go monochromatic from the neck down.

Illusion of fit

Instead of baggy, shapeless clothing to hide in women with curvy figures should always go for great-fitting dresses that would flatter your curves. This could be achieved with the versatile Gigi wrap (as in the picture), sashes or obis.

Movement in clothes

Layered looks are more than just about covering up. Instead, three-piece dressing (tank/jacket/pant, tank/skirt/shawl, etc.) is all about creating movement in clothing, an essential component of timeless style. Women should find their own unique look instead of just following trends.

Modern comfort

The most important part of personal style is your personality. Designs should emphasise on personal comfort by utilizing fabrics stretch, like this cowl-neck top. You should be able to look great and be comfortable at the same time.

Stop worrying about what you used to look like. Dressing for the woman you are today may mean cleaning out your closet and re-building your wardrobe from almost scratch. Keep what fits you today, what’s in good condition. Everything else has to go. Hide items in another part of your home you can’t bear to part with, but no longer fit.

Trendy accessories

Just because you are trying to build a timeless wardrobe that withstands the fads, it doesn’t mean you can’t try out new trends. The key is to put your money into trendy accessories. 90% of women today shouldn’t follow trends. Although everybody wants to wear trendy, most of these only work on very young women.

Flattering silhouettes

Finding the right bottoms are the most difficult. Once you get it, everything falls into place. The trumpet skirt and bootleg pant are universally flattering pieces. Garments with princess seams create a waistline and a bust.

Break the rules

It’s all about style, not size, age or economic status. Pieces like basic black which, with a switch of shoes and accessories – sneakers for daytime or slingbacks and pearls for evening – can fit into any crowd. You can even pair a denim jacket with a silk skirt!

No-fail chic extras

The building blocks of a timeless wardrobe may be flattering basics, but it’s the extras that will polish your total look, for example red lipstick, sunglasses and pearls.
