“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Coco Chanel, champion of the little black dress, said it best. Here are five timeless accessories that will always be classy and fabulous, no matter what trends come and go.
Every woman should own a set of pearls (or a set of pearl lookalikes). Jacqueline Kennedy made the three-strand pearl necklace a timeless fashion statement when she debuted as First Lady. Fifty-plus years later, the pearl necklace is still a declaration of class and vogue.
These multi-layered pearlescent beads from Forever 21 for less than $13 would look great with any LBD!
All of the great fashion icons look even better wearing a sleek pair of black sunglasses. Black sunglasses add an elegant and classy look to any summer outfit. Plus, they match almost anything!
The classic look of the original Ray-Bans can be found in cute and cheap knock-offs. We found these from Tilly’s for only $10.
The Hermes Scarf
With its debut in the late 1920s, the Hermes scarf has proven itself to be a timeless fashion accessory. Worn by many, including Queen Elizabeth and Princess Grace Kelly, the scarf can be purchased in a variety of colors to match any outfit. Tie it around the neck or wear it as a chic way to keep your ‘do free from wind-blown mussing, and you’ve got yourself instant chic!
A great knock-off at a great price comes from H&M at only $15.
The leather handbag
The go-to tote for women, the leather handbag can take you from day to night. Regardless of the brand, a leather handbag is a must for every woman. Choose a neutral to match every outfit, and it will carry you through the years.
This camel-colored bag can take you from work straight to the weekend. Another great H&M find for only $35!
Want to spruce up an outfit? Slip into a pair of classic pumps and you’ll be a walking fashion statement. Pumps have been a female fashion staple for years and have held their ground through times of flats, wedges and jellies and look great with any outfit!
We love these sleek black pumps from Target for only $30.
