Parts of a Whole: Building a Timeless Wardrobe

The secret to a refined and timeless wardrobe is to select truly special pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways, not by filling your closet with every trend that each new season brings. Purchase pieces that have decisive cuts, neutral tones and great fabrications to ensure each item’s versatility. If you keep your closet stocked with modern classics then you won’t need to periodically purge it, rather, you can infuse your wardrobe each season with a few current items (be it a trendy style or the “it” color of the season) and you will always have some fresh options.

Here are our picks for some core pieces that are seasonless, timeless and utterly necessary building blocks for a great wardrobe.
