RealSimple.com: Fashion Trends That Never Go Out of Style

Timeless Fashion Trends

Fashion is fickle…except when it’s not. For every flash-in-the-pan crop-top moment, there is a chic and timeless animal print. Take a glimpse back to see why these looks keep moving forward.

Ladylike

Where it began: In 1947 French designer Christian Dior ushered in the lavishly feminine New Look with a nipped-in waist and a full skirt. Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy gave it mass appeal in the 1950s, making it the silhouette of choice for well-dressed women.

Why it keeps coming back: It complements curves and looks polished but never over-the-top, says Patricia Mears, the deputy director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York City.

How to wear it now: Sophistication lies in the details. Bow-tie kitten heels or vintagey jewelry can effortlessly class up your jeans.

To buy: Bettye Muller pumps, $355, 212-246-3298. R.J. Graziano earrings, $95, 212-685-3737. Sequin bracelet, $88, sequin-nyc.com for info.
