Classic: adjective; of the first or highest quality, class, or rank; of enduring interest, quality or style; basic; fundamental.
A woman’s best bet is always a classic, whether it’s a little black dress and pearls à la Coco Chanel or a 1955 Chevy Bel Air in candy apple red and white. When we look at classical art we see the appreciation artists of the era had for curvaceous woman who were anything but shy about flaunting her curves. Today, millions of dollars are made by trying to reshape or eliminate them, when in antiquity thick hips, broad shoulders and fabulous décolletage were celebrated as evidence of a woman’s femininity and desirability.
While today it doesn’t make good fashion sense for most of us to ride around in giant shells while being attended by cherubs, we can sport much more comfortable looks that get us through our days and nights in timeless elegance and style. So flaunt those curves and celebrate them in pieces by classic American designers, such as Calvin Klein. I promise it is all much more flattering and comfortable than seashells.
Peasant tops and classic white can never go wrong; classics can be reimagined with fabulous details, keeping them as a part of your staples.
A little black dress and a navy A-line: two basic pieces that can be dressed up or down a million ways — it all just depends on how you accessorize!
Audrey Hepburn once said, “I wore pants when they weren’t fashionable; I sat down on the curb if I was tired; I did what I wanted and what I thought was reasonable so long as I didn’t hurt anyone.” Now who are we to argue with an icon of style when it comes to classic pants and skirts?
Classic sweaters never go out of style and can be layered with seasonal trends to keep your look on point. Great details and soft pieces make all the difference.
