Someone might ask – Sisi, what do you mean by an ageless wardrobe? An ageless wardrobe in this regard is having a collection of clothing items that can never go out of style in the fashion world. Most times, we buy clothing items or fashion accessories that are in vogue, but the reality of this is that they may not stand the test of time. Then once the trend for that particular clothing is over, we dump them in the wardrobe and scream – I don’t have anything to wear! What happens next? We deep the cute hands in our pockets again to buy new trendy wears and that becomes a cycle.
So in this post, I will teach you how to build an ageless wardrobe, stay stylish and save some cash for yourself. Here are the 3 main tips:
#1. Buy more neutral colours
Buying and wearing neutrals like beige, white, brown, black, grey etc saves the day. No matter the place you are in the world, these colours are trendy in every season and suit every occasion. I will let you in on a secret, ever since I started buying neutrals, my expenses on clothing and other fashion accessories have been cut down. Also, having neutrals in your wardrobe reduces the thought-process around mixing and matching colours because every neutral colour blends well with one another, and you can easily repeat an outfit severally without anyone noticing the outfit repetition. Like Coco Chanel said
“Women think of all colours except the absence of colour. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is perfect harmony.”
On that note, having the ‘absence of colour’ in your wardrobe creates the perfect ageless wardrobe.
#2. Buy monochrome basics
Basics like plain t-shirts, bodycon dresses, kimonos, vests and denim can never go out of style. This is why basics are termed ‘essentials.’ Having them will always keep you stylish, chic and put together.

#3. Invest in classic patterns
Building an ageless wardrobe is never complete without having a touch of floral-printed, checkered patterns or polka-dotted dresses or blouses. These classic patterns give off vintage and ageless vibes.
#4. Invest in timeless pieces of jewellery
Pearls, gold and silver-plated pieces of jewellery are timeless. Studs, hoops, pearl earrings and necklaces will always be in vogue.
Pro-tip: Always have black sandal heels, brown slides and a brown/black tote bag in your wardrobe
