Timeless vs. Trendy: Building a Sustainable Wardrobe



In the past few years, there has been a lot of talk about creating a capsule wardrobe. If you don’t know what that is, it basically means intentionally purchasing pieces for your closet that will stay in fashion longer and can be worn in many different ways. This post is here to help you understand what is timeless and what's just a trend so you can build a sustainable wardrobe.


Here are 5 timeless clothing items that never go out of style:


1. Classic white button-down shirt - It's versatile and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

2. Little black dress - A must-have for every woman's wardrobe, it's perfect for both formal events and casual outings.

3. Tailored blazer - It adds a touch of sophistication to any outfit and can instantly elevate your look.

4. Dark-wash jeans - They're flattering, versatile, and can be styled in countless ways.

5. Leather jacket - It's edgy, timeless, and adds a cool factor to any outfit.


A lot of people are not a fan of the “timeless” look because it is usually in neutral colors but remember that you can take any of these items and tailor it to your own style! Adding some different colors or textures in there won’t mess anything up as long as it fits you well. But remember that the whole point is that we don't want to restart our whole closet in 5 years!


Here are 5 clothing items that are more fleeting trends:


1. Neon-colored clothing - While it may be trendy now, it can quickly become outdated.

2. Chunky platform sneakers - They're popular now, but will likely not stand the test of time.

3. Logo-heavy clothing - Logos come and go, so it's better to invest in more classic pieces.

4. Ultra-distressed denim - While ripped jeans can be stylish, excessive distressing can look dated.

5. Crop tops - They can be cute, but their popularity is likely to fade over time.


Remember, fashion is all about expressing yourself and having fun, so feel free to experiment with both timeless and trendy pieces! The idea is to build your wardrobe around more timeless pieces and then find ways to incorporate today's trends. Doing this allows your closet to grow with you and your style!
