These Classic Fashion Brands Will Never Go Out of Style

When it comes to our wardrobes, there tend to be two types of clothes: the trendy current pieces from fast-fashion retailers and the classics—those timeless pieces that cost a pretty penny, are most likely designer, and will never go out of style. These classic designer brands serve up the foundation pieces to your closet (think a Saint Laurent leather jacket, Gucci loafers, and a Chloé bag) that combine high-quality design, functionality, efficiency and always feel of the moment. Splurge a little now but save a lot later with these classic designer brands that survive the fast-fashion cycle and never go out of style.
