Over the years, we’ve seen dozens of fabulous trends come and go. Think: designer sweatshirts, leather leggings, and a recent resurfacing of classic overalls (okay Dad, now is your opportunity to say, “I told you so.”). But we also know that style is forever – certain sartorial favorites will never be just a passing phase, nor will they lose their positions at the forefront of our closets. They’re easy to layer, mix-and-match, and they pass the all-day comfort test. We’ll grab them for everything from a day at the office to a day at the beach! Check out our Timeless Top Ten, and leave us a comment about which pieces you can’t do without (or, alternatively, which looks you think should’ve made the list).

Black Skinny Jeans: Finding the perfect pair of blue jeans is rewarding enough, but finding the perfect pair of black skinnies is an achievement youâ€™ll truly hold dear. That joy eventually turns to sorrow when you realize youâ€™ve worn them to death.

Textured or Printed Scarves: Color preference is going to vary by personal style, but a printed or textured scarf adds a layered accent to every outfitâ€¦not to mention that what functions as a daytime accessory moonlights as a summer night shawl.

The Little Black Dress: Dress it up or down; wear it to work, happy hour, or date night; pair with flip-flops or stilettos; accessorize with animal prints or classic diamonds. Whatever you're looking for...the LBD won't let you down.

Rainbow Sandals: Youâ€™re lying if you say you donâ€™t own a pair of sandals in this style. Rainbows are particularly popular since they conform to your arch, match virtually everything, and boast an impressive lifetime warranty.

Cutoff Shorts: Vintage, high waisted, â€œdestroyed,â€ or all of the aboveâ€"cutoff shorts are a summertime (or equatorial) staple. Every girl should have at least one pair that provides added confidence and legs for days.

Sunglasses: Aviators are an era-spanning, iconic accessory. They can fit any face shape, style, or gender, since they come in a million different sizes and colors. Donâ€™t even get us started on Tom Cruise in Top Gunâ€¦

The Cotton V-Neck: Itâ€™s similar to The Little Black Dress (LBD for short) in versatility, but unique as a unisex must-have. Theyâ€™re lightweight, loose, and easy to layer! They also boast a finance-friendly price tag and insane softness of cotton.
8 of 10
Beige Trench Coat: More chic than a sweatshirt and warmer than a cardigan, a tan trench falls flatteringly over dresses and button-ups alike...no matter the color. It's also a perfect fit for both long and petite frames!
9 of 10
Funky Statement Clutch: An unconventional patterned clutch can add a bold splash of personality to even the most basic getup. Itâ€™s perfect for running errands, weekend outings, and always as a conversation starter ("where'd you get that bag?").

Loafers are always on-trend for a number of reasons: a classic shape thatâ€™s in-between pointed and curved toe, availability in both patent and matte leather (suede), and theyâ€™re uniquely comfortable while still being incredibly stylish.
