However, there’s no denying that there’s something incredibly appealing and, dare we say, liberating about adopting a more classic style. One could argue that the collective fatigue surrounding fast fashion is why we’ve recently seen so specific minimal aesthetics take off in the cultural zeitgeist—e.g., the rise of quiet luxury or the obsession with “old money” fashion.

While that might seem impossible, we’re here to tell you otherwise. It’s incredibly easy to look timeless and trend-forward; you just need a few tricks up your sleeve.
