Timeless Fashions: 15 Clothing Styles With Staying Power


From tweed and trench coats to bold prints and bright colours — there are some styles that just can't be snuffed. These are what we like to call timeless fashions. Not only are these pieces versatile, their allure and tenacity can be attributed to their ability to flatter almost any figure.

We don't usually personify clothing, but these stylish pieces possess strength in character and that's precisely why they endure (let's be serious — there's a reason why tie-dye, er, died). Whether it's an animal print dress or perfectly painted red lips, we continue to see the resurgence of these classics on the runway and red carpet. These styles will forever have a place in our sartorial hall of fame — and our closets.

Here are 15 clothing styles that have ultimate staying power.
