1. The straw hat
A little rattan doesn’t hurt anybody; so don’t be afraid of this classic straw hat. An ultimate timeless wardrobe essential if you ask us. It gives you that instant summer feeling and is ideal for lazy beach days or spying on people while sitting on a terrace. It works well with every outfit and prevents you from sunburns. Do we need to say more?
2. The maxi floral dress
The maxi floral dress is an instant mood booster. Whether you’re at the French Rivièra or at safari in South Africa: this dress does it job very, very well. Multifunctional as it is, you can also wear it both during winter and summer. Make sure you buy a darker color if you want to wear it in winter as well. Dark dresses look better with tights, believe us.
3. The high boot
A pair of boots is always a good idea ánd a true timeless wardrobe essential. If you want to invest your money in one pair great boots, go for a high model, just underneath your knees. They look gorgeous with everything. Wear wide palazzo pants on top of it and you keep warm legs during winter, or combine them with a cute, short dress during warmer days. We bet you never want to take them off anymore.
4. The souvenir blouse
A little gemstone, mixed with a little pattern spices up every simple outfit. Wear it with culottes to work or with jeans and cowboy boots during your weekend. We assure you this is a good investment.
5. The hair accessory
Hair accessories are back! From bold hairpins to hair bands and funny elastics: everything is possible. They form the perfect detail to every look. Whether your look is over the top or you rather prefer to keep it simple: finish it with a cute hair accessory.
6. The trench coat
There’s no such classic as the trench coat. Whether it was Burberry or Aquascutum who invented it: it is a brilliant coat everyone should own. We are happy it is not reserved to soldiers anymore, since we couldn’t image our lives without it. Trench coats are perfect for rainy days, summer nights and cold winters, when paired with a great scarf. Just go get ‘em.
7. The leather skirt
Pieces made from leather always look better. A leather skirt is undisputed a classic. Wear it in camel, grey or black: all timeless colors. A leather skirt looks good on a party as well as in a business environment. Note to self: very short leather skirts look only good when you’re Madonna or under 16.
8. The boot cut jeans
A dark and boot cut jeans is the ultimate essential for every wardrobe. Despite it might not sound very exciting, finding the right one for your body type actually is. So go shopping and try on a shit load of them and find your true match for the rest of you life and live happily ever after.

Go big or go home, seems to be the credo concerning sneakers these days. However, it is more than just a trend: it is the revival of the 90ies and here to stay. Opt for nude colors and you will find your timeless pair.

11. The top-handle bag
This bag used to be stiff, until it became adopted by the fashion in-crowd. It reminds us of the “it’s ugly until Rihanna wears it”-effect. However, this bag meanwhile evolved to the status of “classic” and therefore belongs to this list. Buy it in croc-style or smooth leather, dependent on your style. remember: you can never go wrong with this one.
