As a woman ages, she grows to realize the importance of classic style. She’s no longer interested in items that can be worn for no longer than six months or so and is prepared to pay a little bit extra to ensure that she not only looks good, but also manages to maintain that look well into the years to come. So which items should you invest in when it comes to classic pieces?

Shift Dress


The art to creating a great style with few items is to stick to well-made, well fitting classic items that you can dress up or down, depending on the occasion. And the simple shift dress is one such item. Pick the right dress and you will feel comfortable wearing it to a ritzy do, or to watch your kids perform in their school play.


All that’s needed to dress the shift dress up are the right accessories including a silk scarf, clutch purse, jewelry, and a pair of heels. Dress it down with a wool cardigan or light sweater, messenger bag, and pumps. The shift dress is a versatile item that every well-dressed woman has in her closet.

Cotton Blazer

A well fitting (notice the term well fitting again) blazer can add real panache to an outfit. It elevates a basic jeans and T-shirt look into the realms of elegant, and when worn with the simple shift dress (see above) can give a professional look for work. A dark colored blazer will be more versatile than a light colored one as it can be worn all year round.



No woman is ever too old to wear a pair of jeans. Again, provided the fit is flattering, this can be a timeless look. A pair of jeans can be integral to a casual, haven’t-really-bothered look, or when dressed up can look as smart as any pair of pants. Stick to low heels for a casual look, or tuck your jeans into a pair of knee-high boots, and opt for a pair of heels when you want a more sophisticated look.

The classic white shirt has a place in many looks. Wear it in the boardroom with a suit, or a simple skirt and wool tank top. While it’s never out of place in the office, this item shouldn’t be kept solely for the working week. Wear it with a pair of jeans, and you’ve got a great casual weekend look. If you want something a little snazzier, add a colorful cotton scarf or a piece of statement jewelry.

Pencil Skirt

The pencil skirt is a very flattering cut for a woman, regardless of her size. Providing the skirt is well fitting and not too tight, it can enhance a woman’s shape and give her an alluring look. Again, it’s a timeless piece as it’s just as at home in the office as it is at the theater. A pair of stiletto heels and a fitted blouse can create a sexy look that isn’t too obvious, while a more modest pair of heels and a casual top can give a woman an elegant look that manages to be a little more practical.


Any woman who sticks to these classic pieces can’t go wrong. Choose colors that won’t date, such as black and navy, spend as much as you can afford, and you will be able to create a style that will last. Furthermore, by investing in well-made, well fitting pieces, you will feel comfortable and at ease when wearing your clothes – something that will only enhance your overall look.
