A personal investment
Building a personally curated timeless wardrobe needs both time and effort. This is also the best way to go against fast fashion and trends. Rather than creating a new wardrobe every season at every trend, a timeless closet serves to showcase what’s most important: yourself!
Set aside some time and a budget to achieve your dream closet. Shopping, thrifting, and doing research to find your items will take some time, and whilst it may seem like a tedious task, the result is worth every second of anticipation. While shopping and doing your research, keep in mind that to achieve a timeless wardrobe, you need quality items that will last a long time. Think of investing into natural fibers that outlive their artificial counterparts, fabrics that, with proper care, look brand new even after years of wear. Silk, cotton, wool, linen, leather, etc. While these fabrics might be slightly more expensive, they truly are an investment. Bonus: they feel great on your skin and can be adjusted depending on weather!
Creating your brand
It all boils down to figuring out how you want your timeless closet to look, with items you see yourself wearing today and tomorrow. Also, putting emphasis on quality items that will be able to last through years with proper care. The goal of a timeless wardrobe is to create your brand through your fashion sense. In a world where trends come and go, a true fashion sense remains unbeatable. A style that will be able to inspire kids of today and the next generation.
