Trends come and go (and come back again), but some things will truly stand the test of time. Why is it that I look at my outfits from 2010 and cringe, but I see 60-year-old photos of Jackie Kennedy's style and want to dress just like her? Because she stuck to the classics. Experimenting with trends is definitely fun, but certain pieces have much more staying power.
For all of you classic dressers out there, I've rounded up a handful of my favorite trends that I believe will still look chic in 10 years (and beyond). For instance, monochrome dressing is such an easy way to look put-together without really trying. Just grab a few pieces in the same color, and you're good to go. Scroll down to shop the other classic summer clothing trends I love, along with outfit ideas courtesy of IG's coolest ladies.
A light, breezy skirt is great to have on-hand during sweltering summer months.
These $30 slide sandals will go with everything in your closet. The best part? Nordstrom reviewers confirm that they're super comfortable.
To be honest, yellow hasn't always been a color I sought out, but Grece's outfit above has convinced me to start trying it.
2. Frilly White Blouses
This adorable Mango collared top is a cute option if you love the IG-famous Miu Miu version.
This is bound to be a top seller at Nordstrom thanks to its cute ruffles and on-trend square neckline.
3. Matching Sets
The beauty of buying a matching set is that the pieces can easily be mixed-and-matched with other things in your closet.
4. Oversize T-Shirts
5. One-Piece Swimsuits
I love the '90s-inspired thin straps on this perfect suit.
Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
