What clothing will always be in style?

I get asked this question a lot. So I came up with a minimal list of timeless clothing items to guide you. Once you own these pieces then you can begin to add a few trendy accessories to update your look. I believe that your shoe choice is #1 in updating your look, #2 your hairstyle is really important in keeping your look modern, #3 your eyeglasses are a key factor in keeping your look fresh, that is if you wear glasses and #4 your jewelry choices keep you looking cool and current as well. You may be asking yourself why I choose to wear vintage jewelry if I am going for a "current & modern" look? I believe in styling yourself in modern timeless clothing pieces and by adding vintage jewelry it makes your look way more interesting than adding a piece of jewelry that has no meaning. Dress and accessorize with meaning. That is my mantra.

Below is my list of a timeless wardrobe. Get these pieces in your closet first then go shoe shopping, visit your hair stylist, get some updated specs and then shop for jewelry with meaning.
