If we were all being honest with ourselves, we might actually admit that people who incorporate at least one classic element into their outfit look substantially better than those who don’t. Classics are classics. They just are. When Hollywood was still glamorous and clothing was made for the woman to wear and not to wear her, everyone just looked incredible.
My number one classic piece that I love to wear (and would like to mainstream) is a hat. Not just any hat though, think Breakfast at Tiffany’s style hats. Sometimes rather big, but always elegant. This summer, I’ve been wearing a big black sunhat!
This brings me to my next classic: the French Twist. For whatever reason, the elegant up-do has been reserved for the elite and special occasions. I’m willing to bet if Kate Middleton started wearing her long locks in this style, it would be reborn as a go-to hairstyle.
Being a tall girl, I’ve learned what size heel is reasonable for me to wear and I always go back to the kitten heel. Forget stilettos, I can barely walk in those anyway! This heel is about 1″ thick and super easy to walk in while reducing the stress on your feet. No more ballet flats in your purse girls!
Bringing us back to the 1950s, I’d really love to see “house dresses” make a come back! These super cute dresses were made for the average house wife who had to run errands and keep up with her home. Usually they buttoned up the front and hit just below the knee. I have a peach one from Ralph Lauren and it just looks adorable. There’s nothing better than looking cute while getting things checked off your to-do list.
Finally, I’d love to see furs come back into style. No, not actual animal fur, I don’t want to kill any little creatures just to look good. However, the look of the fur can remain the same. I remember walking into my grandma’s closet and trying on some of her heirloom furs and seeing how classy they looked on me as a little girl.
