Fashion is completely transparent. It’s fun, it’s confusing, and it never dies off. If there is one thing that is constant, it is “change.” And change is exactly the one thing that is constant when it comes to fashion. Since the beginning of human civilization, there has been a constant effort to look better. The different styles in fashion have always gone through innumerable changes. With the increase in the amount of innovations, the change in trend and fashion, styles have also been rapid. With that in mind, here is the list of a few timeless fashion styles that we love:

1. Vintage

One of the most adorable fashion styles is a blast from the past. From flapper dresses to pinup clothing and from retro swimwear to indie clothing, the vintage look is a culmination of fashion from the 20’s to the 70’s. It is the one trend that has overcome the test of time.

2. Bohemian

The best way to describe bohemian would be to use the word non-traditional. It uses extravagant and wild patterns on exotic textures. It can also be characterized as an inspiration from gypsy and hippie looks. It is more commonly referred to as ‘Boho’.

3. Casual

Casual is a combination of elegance with comfort. This simple style has caught up well with the passage of time and is one of the most sought after fashion styles as of now. None of the exotic and bold items will be in the wardrobe of a woman who follows casual fashion. They would prefer to put on a white T-Shirt and black pants over tight and uncomfortable exotics any day. They tend to keep it simple and match the accessories with whatever the simple clothing they are wearing.

4. Sophisticated/Exotic

The people who prefer this are the ones who require everything at best quality. Nothing satisfies them if it is not worth the trouble. They often look for styles that make a statement on the quality, polished manner and culture. Most of them are the ones who are from higher status; culture and luxury mean the most to the people who choose this style of fashion.

5. Tomboy

This fashion style is basically for females who do not want be dress like a lady. They do not abide by the usual norms of what a woman should wear. To put it lightly, they’d rather wear black over pink. Most of their clothing are a bit baggy and focuses more on graphic T-shirts and shirts from the boys’ selection. They do not prefer light colors and frills or laces. It can also be described as simple and modern. A boyish look is what they prefer over the classy, elegant looks.

6. Rocker Style

Vintage T-Shirts, ripped jeans and leather jacket – three words that describe the rocker look. It is one of the most versatile styles of fashion, which keeps changing depending on the style of the person. There are no baggy apparels in this style. Most of the clothes chosen are a tad bit smaller in size. It all depends on the wearer and what music they love and support, which is most times Rock music.

7. Preppy style

The college look would be the tag most suitable for the preppy look. The collared T-Shirts are matched and A-line skirts are matched with girly blouses that are lined up in their wardrobe. A cute little headband and geeky glasses mostly do accompany with this style. The geeky look might seem to be an expensive style, but it is not required to shell out much to get this look, as it is not that luxurious.

8. Artsy Fashion style

Women who enjoy the artsy style tend to stay away from the traditional ‘trends’ of the fashion world and love to make a statement with their clothing. Often times they will be the creator of their own fashions, designing and creating their own blouses, hats, and jackets. Each artsy style will be different per woman, as everyone has his/her own idea of what ‘art’ truly is. That’s what makes this particular fashion style so unconventional and interesting.

9. Business/Corporate Fashion Style

The woman who dresses like a businesswoman is a smart, sophisticated lady who demands and deserves respect from everyone around her. She won’t settle for less and is an over-achiever who considers herself to be high up in society. Her wardrobe is incredibly smart and snazzy, with plenty of blazers and pencil skirts.

10. Sporty

It’s rather easy to describe the sporty fashion style: it’s sporty! Girls will typically wear clothes from some popular sport companies like Adidas or Nike and will always have runner shoes (or similar style shoes) on. They prefer a simple and subtle look that oozes ‘sports’, with plain colors like white, black, and gray being BIG hits. They won’t strive for anything fashionable or flashy and would prefer sweatpants, tight runner pants, and basic tees. Don’t forget the ponytail to finish it off!

11. Chic style

Chic is characterized by being trendy and fashionable. It is a type of statement to make oneself look smart and striking. Whoever follows this style makes sure to choose well-tailored stylish designs that are pretty classy. Strong colors which are not extravagant, comes as a part of the chic style. It is something that relates to being casual in a not-so-casual way. If you are part of this style, your wardrobe is a symbol of style.

The woman with this type of fashion style won’t step foot outside without looking her best, and pays close attention to creating a wardrobe filled head to toe with the most glamorous and classy pieces.
