Fashion trends come and go faster than ever these days, but classic wardrobe staples have remained the same for decades. By incorporating interesting colours and unique pieces into your wardrobe, you can showcase your personal style while still looking stylish and chic, and ensuring your clothes stand the test of time.

  1. The white shirt

A white shirt is a classic and essential wardrobe item for any age group. It can be dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with jeans. Older women can opt for a slightly oversized fit and a crisp, high-quality cotton fabric to add sophistication to their outfits.

  1. A trench coat

A timeless piece that’s perfect for transitional weather. Choose a style that flatters your figure and fits well, and opt for a neutral colour like beige or black.

  1. Scarf

A versatile accessory that can be worn in many creative ways, from wrapped around your head, knotted at your neck, draped across your shoulders, or tied onto a handbag. Choose a high-quality silk or cashmere scarf in a classic print or colour.

  1. High-waisted jeans

A flattering choice for women over 50, as they can help to smooth out the stomach area a lot of us struggle with. Look for a straight or bootcut style in a dark wash.

  1. Silk blouse

This sophisticated wardrobe staple can be paired with jeans or a skirt for a polished look. Choose a bright colour like fuchsia, jade or electric blue to add some interest to your outfit.
