Fashion trends come and go - we all remember leg warmers, colour-tinted sunglasses and micro handbags - yet some looks are truly timeless. If you want to create a capsule closet that will never go out of style, then these eight wardrobe staples are sure to do the trick. From the classic trench coat to a really great pair of designer sunglasses, shop these enduring looks to ensure your style is always on point.
1. The Little Black Dress
It goes without saying that the Little Black Dress has become an icon in its own right. The style was introduced by Coco Chanel back in 1926, when black was becoming a symbol of power and strength. Then, the LBD grew to new heights when Audrey Hepburn made the garment famous in "Breakfast at Tiffany's". All these decades later, no matter what the season, or the latest fashion trends, every retail store will have a LBD in stock. Get the look with one of our gorgeous designer LBDs.
2. Statement blazers
Versatile, sophisticated and always on-trend, blazers are perfect for the in-between months of the year, when the weather is mild. Suitable for dressing up or down, blazers are easy to wear and flattering for all shapes and sizes. Don't just reserve yours for your next job interview - grab your blazer and wear it with pride! Go big or go home, with this stunning blazer from Armani Jeans.
No winter season would be complete without a pair of designer boots. From the classic Chelsea to knee-highs and heeled numbers, there's a pair of boots to suit all women, seasons and occasions. Wear yours with a dress for evening cocktails, or go casual with your favourite pair of jeans - no matter how you choose to style your look, your boots will keep you warm and dry, and bang on-trend! Shop our ankle boots and knee-high boots to get the look!
4. The Trench Coat
Another item that simply never goes out of style is the classic trench coat. Perfect for spring and autumn, this annual staple is extremely versatile and looks great with both smart and casual attire.

5. Designer sunglasses
Since they were invented in the 18th century, sunglasses have been part of our lives, and they aren't showing any signs of disappearing. Perfect for the beach, the street and the park, a good pair of designer sunglasses will stay in fashion and last you for years to come. Get the look with our designer shades.
While certain washes and cuts fall in and out of favour, one thing's for sure; denim will never be unfashionable.
