Don’t you just hate when a publication or fashion house has announced a new trend and you are looking at them with a side-eye because you’ve already seen it or perhaps already have it in your closet? Yes it has happened and will continue to happen, so when you are doing your Spring cleaning, think again about throwing certain clothing items away. The fashion industry tends to bring back old “trends” with an added twist (much like a lot of other industries, but in the words of Sweet Brown “Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That” well at least not right now anyway).
A lot of times, classic (or timeless) pieces or patterns are labeled as trends such as color blocking, high waisted jeans, floral print, and many others. If your favorite dress, shirt, etc. is not considered “in,” chances are you can still rock it (unless of course it is absolutely hideous, but you can exercise your better judgment on this one) and let your individuality shine through. Let’s explore a few of the classics that you should keep in your closet.
Animal print is definitely a mainstay that has stood the test of time and can add flare to any look. It’s also considered a neutral hence why it pretty much goes with anything. The options are endless from leopard to zebra print. If you tend to be the daring type, you can also mix prints for a bolder look but just be careful in how you do it!
Military wear is practical, so it’s no wonder why it consistently is a winner amongst many. It is also versatile, and with a few accessories can easily go from casual to chic like the options above. You don’t necessarily have to include camouflage to complete a military look. You can always opt for a minimalistic look in simply wearing military green from head to toe.
