So, just as I was about calling it a night last night I stumbled on a movie shot in the 80's, ordinarily I will never be drawn to its old picture production but it being centred around the fashion scene and being a true lover of style, my eyes became fixated. It was a move about the chaos surrounding fashion week sometime tat year, the fashion, style, glitz and glam was so intriguing to me. My curiosity ran wild.

After this movie, back in the days when the A lines, the Pleats and the Puff skirts were so in, it hit me- there were some style now that were worn proudly back then. Only goes to show how even over decades past some styles aren't ever going to be extinct. Yes now you go shopping for the skinny jeans, the wedges and the cropped tops and so on but these timeless trends are still and should be found in your closets.

So here are timeless trends every woman shouldn't be without. Basically the BASICS of style. And for you that already know, there's always room for reminding...winks

1. The LBD
if you remember when I blogged about the LWDs being the new LBDs, well I also clarified that has much has the white dresses are in now the LBD will always be a classic. Not only is it timeless its appropriated for all functions and any time of the year. What takes it from one era to another is what you throw on it and what you pair with it that might be trending at any moment.

2. The White Shirt
its is what it is, its white allowing you to work whatever style you want on it. There isn't anything your white shirts cant work with, it has the ability to go from an official look to a classy sophisticated look, paring them with pearls to a laid back look when you team it up with denim.

3.The Classy Handbag
Your handbag speaks a lot about you, its being said to give a woman a powerful look...depending on how structured it is. As a woman myself, I know when we chicks are sizing each other up, we tend to never miss accessing that bag. so it counts, get a neutral colour that will go with anything you throw on, amidst all the colours we have to choose from a black and brown bag is a must.

4. Chic Wallet
oh yes even the wallet. We always have to pay for one thing or the other and you cant be all glitz on the outside and the inside don't meet the same standard. keep it clean, simple and classy.

5. Timepiece
when it comes to wristwatches its advised, forget the trend and invest in a timeless classic timepiece. look for what matches your personality

6. Scarves
its soooo ladylike, get a wide range of this, you'll never regret it. it also gives that vintage look.

7. Classic black heels
you should own that one black heels or two that gives you that comfort. A classic heel that you could walk in all day long and looks great.

8. Denim that fits...PERFECTLY
i'll go into it straight, a perfect jeans lifts and supports. if the back pockets ends just above the top of your tight, then it fits. once you find one that fits, try sitting down, if your butt crack is peeking out, please it don't fit.

9. Black Pants Suit
This is a classic cause you can wear it as a one piece together or apart, its a versatile ensemble. pick whatever time of the day and its one number that fits ...any occasion. what you pair it with determines where you wear it to. Play wit it, pants worn on its own as well as throwing the jacket over a dress, denim or skirts.

10. The Wrap Dress
its it ability to flatter the softness of a woman and how it slims the waist that puts this on the list. Dress it up with heels or dress it down with sandals or flats, this is why its timeless,

11. The Breton stripe Shirt
Now with this, its got to be top quality goes when you are looking to project a strong sophisticated look or with denim for a more relaxed look.

So there you have it...TIMELESS Trends.
