I have remained pretty loyal to the same aesthetic since I was a teenager. When it comes to my personal style, one might label it classic meets minimalist with a fashion-forward twist. That said, I don't see myself veering much from this lane as I get older. It's for that very reason that I like to make mindful purchases knowing that I am likely to wear the pieces for many years to come.

Now, this doesn't mean that I don't like to indulge in trendy picks from time to time. I just like to stick to my comfort zone, which is full of elevated basics like button-downs, T-shirts, and jeans; perennial layers like trench coats and neutral blazers; and comfy yet chic shoes like ballet flats and slingback heels. When it comes to investment pieces, I like to splurge primarily on sweaters and bags. With that in mind, keep scrolling to see 31 timeless picks that I will be loving just as much in my 60s as I do now.
