Following an intense closet clean-out, I'm planning to only add pieces to my wardrobe if they feel timeless. To me, this means pared-down items that have longevity and staying power over years to come. These classic pieces not only are a way better investment but also work together seamlessly to create a more minimal, elevated wardrobe.
Another benefit when it comes to shopping for timeless pieces is quality control, as you're essentially looking for pieces that maintain their value over time. I turned to trusted retailer Nordstrom for a mixture of evergreen staples that look refined and luxurious. For me, this aesthetic includes traditional denim, little black dresses, layering basics, and tailored pieces. Of course, they all mix and match to create looks across occasions.
Below, find my curated list of timeless, high-quality pieces that you'll have in your wardrobe for seasons upon seasons. Keep scrolling for some timeless shopping.
