By Eliminating the invaluable garments that take up space and cause mental clutter, you can focus on the pieces you want to wear and love to wear. Once you have a solid foundation of versatile and interchangeable items, you can add additional elements that bring your classic wardrobe up to speed with the current trends. I’ve found the following ten items are the most valuable pieces for building a classic style wardrobe, and my investment in them has paid off repeatedly. Get ready for Winter and start building the perfect timeless wardrobe. Summer Essentials are covered in this blog post.
Of course, everyone needs a jacket for Winter, but there’s something about a long coat that brings elegance to any outfit. Long jackets come in many different styles and materials, and regardless of whether it’s wool, leather, fur, or even a long wrap, you can’t go wrong with a full-length coat. They are a perfect example of classic style for your classic wardrobe.
There are many reasons to associate cashmere with wealth. We know they are a piece of classic style clothing for your classic wardrobe, but are they worth the expense?
Cashmere, Are They Worth The
First, most cashmere sweaters are timeless styles that instantaneously put them into the classic wardrobe category. Secondly, cashmere is incredibly soft and feels luxurious. It is very warm yet breathable. It adjusts to your body’s temperature and won’t make you feel like you will overheat, like some other fabrics we tend to wear in the winter months. Cashmere is also very durable; it travels well and doesn’t wrinkle. Lastly, according to codgirl.com, cashmere is made from a few different breeds of goats. These particular goats have two layers of coats, one for warmth and protection from the elements and the second which is cut to make up the material, cashmere or pashminas. Harvesting these materials is much more labor-intensive than your average wool. Therefore the cost reflects this specialty fabric. Cashmere sweaters are a great addition to your classic wardrobe.
Tall boots are a must-have for Winter. They pair great with any winter outfit. Thigh-high, over-the-knee, or knee-high is the perfect investment piece when it comes to footwear. I recommend tall boots because most outfits look proportionate with taller boots. Simply speaking, tall boots are the ish because they can go with any outfit and not make you look like a stump. Some outfits don’t look proportionate with booties or ankle boots. An excellent tall boot, flat or with a heel, can be paired with any outfit. Tall boots are a classic style of footwear that will go great with your classic wardrobe.
A leather skirt is another wardrobe staple that is a classic style of clothing that you can wear repeatedly. With the help of our friend, the tight, no weather can stop us from wearing a skirt on a cold day.
Regarding this section, this is a must-have if you haven’t invested in a pair of illusion fleece-lined tights. These tights, which I’m sure you’ve seen on social media, are incredible. They give the illusion of tights but are The warmest piece of clothing you could own. Here are a few that I have bought.

Mine are the softest, warmest, cozy leggings I have ever worn. They are hands down a must-have for your winter wardrobe. These tights, which I’m sure you’ve seen on social media, are incredible.

Denim styles differ from year to year. Trends in denim are forever evolving, and styles fade in and out of fashion. Straight-leg jeans are one of the oldest styles that remain popular. Straight-leg jeans have a classic silhouette that never goes out of style and always looks classy.
Who says button-downs have to be boring? That is the biggest stereotype against a button-down. Your favorite button-down is the exact opposite of snooze. It’s the canvas for any look you want to achieve and is a parable with practically any piece of clothing. Button downs can take us through every season without question. They go perfectly under a sweater or vest or complete an outfit with jeans. It’s the perfect staple for every wardrobe.
Oh, the most fabulous bag on earth. No one can resist a good tote, even if you’re not a “bag” person. Talk about an investment piece; this bag can repay you time and time again when you grab it on the go to a meeting, on date night, to the movies, to brunch, to church, or cocktails at happy hour. Invest in a tote if you don’t have one; you’ll never regret a dime of your purchase.
Sweater dresses are easy to style, comfortable, and effortless.
