Like a lot of people, it’s safe to say that I have a complicated relationship with some fashion pieces. What we are looking into are fashion pieces with staying power - top picks, which is an interesting concept for the fashion addict such as myself - I adore collecting different clothing items which pair well together to create a cute and fashionable look. However, at the same time, it can become a little exasperating to try and juggle all of the different fashion elements together sometimes.
Thankfully, there are some fashion pieces which have a little more staying power than others. These are the clothing items that will still be chic and stunning even after the season has ended. So, let’s take a look, shall we?
Starting off the list is something that I own and wear quite a bit - a slouchy suit. You’ll know them by the baggy lines and emphasis on comfort that makes them feel beautiful. I find that when it comes to the summertime, and I want to look both professional and not like I’m about to roast, these are a great idea. Plus, when the autumn comes around, you can add a jumper and keep wearing them. A good cream or beige colour is best because it pairs well with a lot of things. But you can't go wrong with a dark staple.
Nothing beats a straight relaxed pair of pants that's cut low and designed to sit casually below the waist. Its the ultra modern, slouchy, cool power suit that oozes style and class for any time of the day.
Floral Pattern Dresses
The beautiful thing about a floral pattern dress is that you can wear it in autumn and it still looks great. Naturally, you can mix the rest of the outfit as the weather changes - I find that knee-high boots, tights and a cardigan are excellent choices for a more mild day. Right now, they’re a good pick when you think about the blazing heat - time for a sunhat and sandals, methinks!
What I personally love about floral dresses is that they’re so light and easy to wear. In the summer, you’re going to want something dignified and lightweight, whereas the autumn calls for something a little heavier. Thankfully, getting both is easy.

Overall, there’s a lot to take advantage of when it comes to those fashion trends that will go on to be exceptional even after the season is done. You don’t have to worry about having to replace a lot of these items - they’re good for multiple uses. It’s a little bit more practical, born from having to buy endless dresses and tops and other items over the years for one season. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, but I’m after a different style sometimes. There’s often a spot for a piece that you’re used to wearing, because you seem comfortable and relaxed in it. Isn’t that the most fashionable look of all?
Yes! As a mother with three children, finding fashionable pieces with staying power is essential! I need my clothes to stand out and be able to be worn multiple times! Thanks you for the great advice!
I have been considering a “slouchy suit” for some time, this blog post has encouraged me to dive in. I love that they can be worn both in summer and in autumn!
Thank you for this great advice, definitely helps me when picking out products! It can get overwhelming, but this article helped guide me in the right direction. I love the floral patterns!
