Forget fast fashion brands if you want to dress classically. While these brands may have classic style clothing items in their inventory, they simply will not stand up to the test of time. The fabric may be thin and pill quickly and are often prone to holes.
Great classic style womenswear don’t follow the trends of the moment but still remain current and modern. Look to brands, like Frank & Eileen (seen here), that use natural fibers like 100% cotton, linen, cashmere and silks. Also consider sticking to a tight color palette and understated timeless prints. Good classic style clothing should be versatile enough to carry you from day to night with a simple change to an elevated shoe.
