Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up, today we’re talking about how to have classic style. I was feeling a little sentimental this week and decided to look back through the early days of my blog… oh my gosh! It’s quite a funny experience to see where you started and the journey that’s been. I noticed the clothes I wore a few years ago and it made me smile, because I actually still own and wear most of them today! I was also in H&M a month ago and we all know how ‘trend’ based that chain can be… well, as I was walking around my jaw dropped when I saw one of their ‘hot new arrivals’ for the season. It was a grey sweater with a cream crochet overlay on the front… the thing is, I actually bought an identical sweater about a year and a half ago from a small boutique!

I laughed because the thing about great style is, it’s always timeless. If you’ve been reading Style Elixir for a while, you’ll probably know I don’t do major trends – I actually hate wearing the ‘hot item’ every second girl is spotted in (you won’t catch me in a pair of Valentino Rockstuds. By the time it’s reached saturation status, it’s done). I prefer to invest in classic pieces that stand the test of time and you can wear for years to come (I must warn you though, the problem with this is your wardrobe is eternally overflowing – I have things in there from 10 years ago that I’d still happily wear, so why would I throw them out!).

One of the things I’m often asked in emails from readers is how to have classic style. In looking back through old blog posts, I wanted to share a flashback with you today – this is an outfit I wore almost two and a half years ago in June 2013 and I still wear the pieces today!

These Prada sunglasses will never go out of style and this Marc by Marc Jacobs Handbag (which you’ve all seen a billion times) is still the handbag I use every day and it’s currently on sale, which never happens! It’s 30% off – seriously girls, snap it up! I’ve bought a second back-up because I want to use this bag forever! A classic black blazer is eternally chic, timeless black patent heels will go with everything in your closet forever and a print shift dress is a must-have you can dress up or down.

So you want to know how to have classic style? There is a lot of truth to one of my favorite quotes and this really sums it up… simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.
