The following compilation is a list of items that I believe to be of a ‘credible cool’ nature… in other words labels, details and styles that will look good now and just as fabulous in 5 years time!
The Shirt: A quality luxurious shirt with trans-seasonal appeal that can be worn day or night. I am such an advocate of the Equipment shirt… owning three myself, they are truly exquisite purchases.
The Dress: Flattering to all body shapes this iconic dress has been a favourite wardrobe staple to those in the know since the 70’s… may I present the Diane Von Furstenberg Wrap Dress:
The Knitwear: The signature quality and design of Missoni knitwear suggests why these yarns are such a classic choice.
The Jeans: Opt for Bootcut indigo denim with no gimmicks to achieve good longevity and a sophisticated appeal.
The Jacket/Coat: There are of course many appealing designs of the Barbour jacket… probably why this country classic company has remained at the forefront of fashion.
The Hem-Length: Hem lengths practically change every season but the perfect ageless and most flattering length is ‘on’ or ‘just below’ the knee.
The Detail: A man’s chunky watch on a female wrist… this juxtaposed detail is still standing the test of time(excuse the pun)!
The Print: Leopard never ceases the sass factor… but always remember a little goes along way!
The Accessory: My sunnies of choice are Ray-Bans and of course with many shapes such as the Aviator, Wayfarer or Cat-eye (shown below) they should suit your face shape?
The Shoes: It is a close call between Tod’s loafers and Converse… both are very much existent within my wardrobe, not only for their comfort-ability factor but also for their credit cool!
So what about you? Is there anything you wish to add to the list? As always would love to hear your comments?
