5 Classic items to Invest In Now and Use Forever


Working in a fashion industry most often means that we as "fashion-insiders" ought to be updated of the latest trends, be in the know consistently, and to keep up with our audience's wardrobes likes and dislikes. However, looking back, we realised that a classic item is the one that we will keep for the longest in our closet. And on your road to building a timeless wardrobe that will last at least over the next 10 years, we have here

5 classic items - the work dress, the sundress, the formal dress, the top, the jumpsuit. 





The Classic Work Dress

 Something of the dark colour palette is almost inevitable when it comes to dressing the office ladies! Since the office ladies work a 5 day work week (at minimum), they see their colleagues and clients regularly. This means that wearing something exceedingly conspicuous may not be a good idea for people will easily notice it.

Imagine being asked: Hey, isn't this dress the one you wore on Monday?

As such, donning on a dress that is less apparent, think the neutral colour palette of blacks and greys, beiges and whites, would be much more appropriate. Lilith Work Dress comes in a fitted silhouette of modest length for work, and also includes subtle overlap details for a chic touch. Complete your outfit with a pair of sleek heels! (▰˘◡˘▰)

The Classic Sundress

One for work down, the next for casual dates and weekends activities!

Living in a tropical country has us fawning over sundresses of all sorts. And to pick one classic sundress to accompany us through rain and shine and years and decades, it surely had to be the Faye Dress. Of a decent length, and decorated with crochet trimmings, this feminine number in white is so perfect for Summer. Furthermore, the A-line silhouette is an enduring one, making its way into even the hearts of millennials. Undoubtedly, this is going to stay in our wardrobe for a long long time. (◡‿◡✿)

The Classic Formal Dress 

 "One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress"
as quoted by Karl Lagerfeld. 

 The Little Black Dress (LBD) is the one true classic that is never just a need, but a must. One of the connotations of black is that of understated class and elegance. Dressing up for a formal event such as a wedding dinner or a company's dinner-and-dance requires something refined and decorous and a little black dress with intricate crochet details is one of the most muted yet polished dress one can wear to such events. A little black dress is usually worn to prevent clashes of outfits, saving one's grace in all subtlety. Francoise Dress is the one we will choose to keep in our closet for any cocktail parties or formal dinners. With its high-low hemline and a fitted silhouette, it almost reminds us of Audrey Hepburn; complete with a high bun and lots of pearls. (∪ ◡ ∪)

 The Classic Top

 Every wardrobe needs a classic top to go along with all your bottoms! That certainly includes yours too! From shift tops to trapeze tops, and to sleeved tops, there is a variety of silhouettes for us to pick from and it is indeed hard to just pick one to keep in our wardrobes. Yet, the one thing for sure is, no doubt, it has to be a solid-hued one – only with solid hues will it be less noticeable towards the general public. To make your everyday runway more interesting though, we would like to introduce a reversible top with a gathered hemline! Janica Top is one classic top that features solid hues and is ideal for pairing with all sorts of bottoms whether it is a pair of denim jeans, or a pair of capri pants. We love it that we can simply switch over to the other side for a totally different colour, and a totally different look! ≧◡≦

 The Classic Jumpsuit

 One jumpsuit to take on the world. Jumpsuits are longer versions of playsuits and rompers, and are definitely the more classy and sophisticated of them all. With a modish silhouette, a jumpsuit can make the wearer's presence significantly felt especially one of a contemporary cut and style. Albeit jumpsuits can be pretty inconvenient when you have to go to the ladies, they speak of exceptional poise. Instead of having just a plain jumpsuit, you may wish to opt for something with a more riveting detail such as tier design at the bodice like Elysia. 。◕ ‿ ◕。
