Of course, everyone has their sense of fashion. Whether you prefer streetwear, bohemian or high fashion, you ought to make your style classy. And if you aren’t certain about your style, you should identify what works for you. It can help reduce the time you spend dressing up.

Trends come and go, but you can never go out of style with classic dressing. From the clothes, you wear to how you accessorize, and the shoes you put on to finish your look. Classic wear gives out the vibe of a sophisticated, serious woman. Besides, you can never go wrong with a classic look for any event.

Here are the top essential pieces to have in your wardrobe for a classic look.

* Blazers * 

Blazers are the best garments that can go with any look. A blazer is an item that will never go out of style. It is the perfect piece for an official look, to spice up a pair of relaxed shorts or jeans, or wear it with a dress.

You can wear an oversized or fitting blazer to achieve a classic look. Most people prefer black blazers; however, you can choose to have multiple colour blazers in your closet. A white blazer can look fantastic when you match it up with any dress. Other colours to help you achieve a classic look include brown, grey, pink, and orange.

* Black Dresses *

Black dresses are timeless outfits that never go out of style, and you can wear them to any occasion. Be it a dinner date, church, a funeral, graduation party, baby shower and many others. A little black dress is exactly what you need to nail a classic look.

Besides, if you want to balance and achieve an elegant look, you should consider accessorizing your black dress. And the process is far easier than you may think if you consider classic jewellery by trollbeads. They are great at creating elegant jewellery pieces you can wear for a lifetime.

* White Sneakers *

A pair of white sneakers can quickly elevate a dull outfit and help you achieve a classic look no matter what you decide to wear. Besides, white sneakers are quick-wear to get ready for an outdoor activity without sweating it.

If you decide to wear a striped tee, then throwing in a pair of white sneakers can help you rock your style. White shoes are an effortlessly perfect way for dressing up when it is sunny. You can choose to match them with an all-white outfit. However, if you want to strike your look, you can do it with an all-black or any other colour outfit you prefer.

* Trench Coats *

Lastly, having a trench coat in your wardrobe is a surefire way to help you achieve a sophisticated look at any time. Of course, trench coats are classic pieces. However, this clothing is also convenient and comes in handy when the weather is unfavourable.

You ought to also have lighter trench coats you can wear during hot summers. They can be a great way to achieve a classic look without feeling uncomfortable in the hot sun. You can leave them loose or button them up!

The above pieces may seem basic, but once you have them in your wardrobe, you can never go wrong with any outfit you decide to rock. Ultimately, the choice of what you have in your closet primarily depends on your style.

What staple is a must to you when creating a classic look?

    Such a great advice! There are two things I would add to this list and that’s a great white shirt and a pair of classic blue jeans. You look fabulous in both those outfits—I’m loving your shoes!

    You look amazingly attractive rocking that black and red striped yellow knit dress styled with the black blazer and the red and black striped high heels!!!!!!
    You also look fabulous rocking the black rib-knit dress accessorised with red earrings.
    The light trench coat also looks great styled with the white sneakers.

    These are great wardrobe staples! White sneakers and a black dress is a must for me. They are closet workhorses and I was shocked at how many times I reached for my sneakers. Another staple for me are jumpsuits. I love that they do not involve too much effort!
