When it comes to fashion, trends and fads come and go like a gentle breeze passing through or fleeting shadows jumping from one place to another in the night. What is cool and hip for the younger generation of trendsetters today may very well be old news and stale bread tomorrow. And that is why designers are always busy scrambling in their workshops as they keep racking their brains to come up with top shelf ideas that will satisfy the insatiable thirst and desire of their fickle and delicate clients. The millennials have fostered a culture that gives so much emphasis on looks and “likes” on social media therefore brand promotion, capitalism and consumerism is at an all-time high because people are very conscious of how they look and how the world sees them.
But just like timeless movies and songs that stay relevant despite the passage of time, there are classic outfits and looks that will never go out of style. And that is why more and more people are looking for used watches in thrift stores and pawn shops not just in Singapore but in other countries as well because a tasteful and appropriate timepiece is a great accessory that will complete your look for sure. Here are other classic ensembles that will never go out of style.
Black will Always be Back
Whether it is an all-black ensemble or just a plain black shirt paired with pants and casual shoes, the timelessness of black outfits can never be denied. It is simple yet elegant and very easy to pair with other colour combinations and that is why this is the go-to outfit of busy people who have little time to decide and even less clothes to choose from. Even black make-up and lipsticks are all the rage right now and we are not talking about the goth and emo kids who overdo it like it’s still Halloween.
Load Up on Leather
From vests to pants and from bracelets to boots, leather is still smoking hot and sexy as hell provided that those who wear them do not push it too much over the edge because moderation is the key in pulling off this sleek and saucy look. And that means staying away from cow-punk leather jeans paired with leopard skin vests. And for those who are crying foul because they are advocates of animal cruelty prevention, there are shops that specialize in guilt-free faux leather that provide the great look without the gore and bloodshed.
Geek is Chic
Some people say that the hipster style is just a trend and it will fade out in time but it is a neo-classic look that will definitely stay for good. Eye glasses, suspenders and bowties paired with skinny jeans and simple kicks is a clean, fresh and classic look that is not reserved for nerds and bookworms in the schoolyard anymore. Just remember to visit a second-hand watch shop around your neighbourhood or while on vacation in countries like Singapore because a great timepiece can tie your whole look together and earn the stamp of approval of fashion critics around you.
