Defying the Decades with Style

Timeless pieces that are a must have for your wardrobe! 
By Melissa Williams Netherton

When it comes to beauty and fashion there are really two ways to go.  You can either get in on the latest trends as they come out…scouring your favorite magazines and constantly rearranging your closet, or you can opt for those timeless treasures which look great no matter what year you’re living in!  If you are ready to start defying the decades with style then read ahead and discover the secrets that the fashion experts already know!

First of all, you simply must get some classic dresses in your closet! It is unanimously agreed upon from top designers and store-owners that dresses are the “it” item if you are looking to defy the decades.  If you look back through the ages and find some pictures of your favorite starlets past and present, you will see that they certainly have a taste for beautiful, stylish dresses.  Some things to look for when choosing a dress worthy of keeping forever is of course a quality item like what you can find at the stores mentioned later in this article.  Also, simple, classic cuts will always be in style and anything that has elegance written all over it is sure to be a hit no matter what year you put it on! 

According to Jeanette Chivvis, the owner of Sugar on La Brea www.sugaronlabrea.com (a great place to shop for timeless gems) “Dresses defy decades as being the best…they might be short or long, big or fitted, but truly never go out of style.” Stop Staring Clothing’s designer, Alicia, agreed with Jeanette Chivvis when it comes to dresses.  Their Hollywood dress was featured in Lucky magazine and is a classic beauty, which has a simple A-line cut and vintage details.

Another important fact to keep in mind is that fashion trends usually come full circle. No well-made, good-looking piece from your wardrobe should ever be considered completely “out of style.”  You can always dress a piece up or down as needed or add in some trendy jewelry and accessories to update the items you have in your closet!

Porridge Clothing designer/owner Laura Stang had this to say about the styles that defy the decades, “Right now I see a HUGE 90's revival making a come back with a sixties mod twist.  It's like Brenda Walsh meets Twiggy.  In the 90's a lot of what was in fashion was taken from 60's trends i.e. wide belts worn high on the waist, high-waisted pants and skirts, mini dresses and cropped pants.  Bold color and prints were also big and they are definitely making a strong comeback.”  Be sure to check out www.porridgeclothing.com for some great timeless pieces that are a must have for your wardrobe! 

Doe-San Francisco is another great place to check for clothes and accessories that will last a lifetime.  Whether you are looking for a simple gold accent necklace for your ensemble or a great leather bag, Doe-San Francisco has you covered.  Their California necklace would make a great addition to any collection and it comes in both sterling silver and 14K gold!

With all the amazing options out there it should be really easy to find styles that defy the decades and that you love!  Remember that the best styles are the ones that make you feel great about yourself, so if you don’t love it, don’t wear it!  There are plenty of great looks out there and with a little time and effort you are sure to find the right look for you!
