A classic fashion style is one that never changes with time. It truly is time proof. It’s all about having the right staple pieces for each category (tops, pants, handbags, etc). One item that fits into the classic fashion style is the almighty trench coat. For as long as trench coats have been in existence, they A.) Never change in appearance, and B.) Never go out of style. They are timeless, and most importantly, a classical staple piece for any wardrobe.
The classical style is mainly known for its simplicity. There’s no embellishments in the clothing, accessories are kept minimalistic, and jewelry is kept small and subtle. For the most part, the color choices for this style are not many: Black, White, Red, Navy, Creams/Khaki. Some may say this style is boring, but that is not true. What it is, is tasteful. Although simple and sleek in style, it is chic, elegant, and many times, even regal.
