10 timeless fashion buys
An injection of freshness courtesy of the latest trending item might be hard to resist, but unless your wardrobe is built on steady foundations it's easy to find yourself with nothing to wear it with and no true style of your own.
And while adding an of-the-moment 'it item' to your basket provides a thrilling little rush, tracking down the perfect white T-shirt or figuring out the best blazer to wear everywhere usually takes a bit more effort.
But as more of us are shopping with longevity – and sustainability – in mind the desire for those key pieces is only getting stronger.
It's something the buying team at MATCHESFASHION has taken note of as it announces a new shortcut to style with the Wardrobe Foundations edit, a dedicated curation of everyday essentials that will be the building blocks of a timeless wardrobe.
Building blocks they may be, but don't call these buys basic: these pieces have been carefully chosen from over 60 new and established designers for their own point of difference, be that cut, fabric or silhouette.
And while the edit is built around a dozen key items there's nothing overly prescriptive about the selection – there is no 'the one', only a great selection so you can find the one that's right for you. Take, for example, jeans, which come in a wide choice of cut, colour and crop so you can meet your perfect match.
Alongside the key pieces there are also the accessories, finishing touches and layers that you need to ensure your wardrobe is built on the firmest foundations.
Read on for the MATCHESFASHION edit of 10 timeless fashion pieces to buy now and wear forever.
