Certain fashions are timeless, always imparting a beauty that goes beyond ages or trends. This spring we want to focus on some of our favorite designs that highlight these classic looks that never go out of style with a fresh touch for the season. Whether you enjoy casual basics or need a new outfit for the office or fancy occasions, everyone can find something to love in these picks that can give you great mileage in your closet for years to come!
1. A Classic Cardigan
Cardigans are a classic sweater option that became popular as early as the 1920’s. Hal Rubenstein gives the cardigan a new name this season with The “Annie” Leather and Ponte Jacket. Offering cleaner cuts and angles with leather instead of wool or cotton, this cover up keeps the same shape but with a sleek, more refined grace. For a look that is always feminine and charming, pair this versatile jacket with dresses or jeans on the weekend.
2. Sweeping Skirts and Scarves
Long skirts and sheer wraps have appeared as demure and prim looks and in other decades as the expression of a bohemian generation. Today we want the best of both worlds with a twist. The Global Chic Runway Glamour Fit and Flattering Maxi Skirt by IMAN can be worn long or tied up on the side for a new impression on this classic style. The Global Chic Runway Glamour Convertible Vest to Scarf by IMAN is also a transformative look that goes from funky fringe to sophisticated scarf in a second.
3. Crisp Linens
Perfectly ironed button ups are a clean and classic look but for spring and summer in a few months we can afford to go with something a little more relaxed while still staying chic. Try linen garments like the “Rustica” Laundered Linen Cropped Pant and “Rustica” Laundered Linen Jacket by Sigrid Olsen Studio. They’re lightweight fabric and cool styles make them a dream for outdoor parties and picnics, but with the right accessories they can be elevated for polished looks.
4. A Fresh Fitted Dress
Contouring garments have transformed throughout fashion history to take, well, a lot of different shapes!, but finding the right balance between fit and flow is key. The “Aliza” Fitted Dress by Hal Rubenstein finds this balance really well with a fitted V-neck top that cinches just below the bust to gently flourish out accentuating a woman’s figure. The additions of pockets to this dress also helps keep it from being too formal and bonus now we have somewhere handy to stash our things!
5. Great-Fitting Denims
A good pair of denim jeans is a staple of every woman’s wardrobe starting from when we were young girls but today the colors, cuts, and fabric of our favorite jeans need to be so much more customizable! IMAN understands that the classics are where style lives forever with a few modern touches, like with the Global Chic Slip Into Slim Stretch Denim Zip Ankle Pant. With a medium rise and a comfortable fit these jeans come in a variety of fresh, fun colors and offer an ankle zipper for a super skinny style or a looser look. To style these jeans for a night out try pairing them with a sexy heel like the Patent Peep-Toe High Heel Slide by BCBGeneration.
