Do you ever look at something and think “I’m going to wear this so many times,” and end up wearing it once or twice (or never)?  It’s worse if you’ve spent a lot of money on it, only to have it be a decorative (if even that) piece of your closet.  We’re all aware of a classic LBD, so here a few more things that may last longer than the cropped top trend (which is so cute, but will probably die out soon).  These things have been in fashion for a while now, and are likely to stay that way for at least the foreseeable future.

  1. 7 For All Mankind Dark Skinny Jeans: Besides being an essential in the ‘off-duty’ model look, these are fabulous for any event during the day or at night.  Rajidesigns 7 for all mankind jeans
  2. Madewell Chambray Shirt: This soft shirt is great for a casual look when you want to not care about wrinkles, but still look put together. Rajidesigns Madewell Chambray Shirt
  3. Prada’s Saffiano Tote: I’ve seen so many people with this bag and thought I would just get sick of it.  But I haven’t and I won’t. Rajidesigns Prada Saffiano Bag
  4. Alexandar McQueen Knuckle Clutch:  Even if you’ve outgrown your punk stage (or are like me and never even had one), this clutch can still be a versatile addition to your bag collection. Rajidesigns Alexandar Mcqueen Clutch
  5. Rachel Comey Mars Bootie:  I love bootie shoes. It’s actually part of the reason I think I can tolerate winters.  They’re so easy to walk in and look good with almost everything (I say this because I’m almost certain they’re not fancy party appropriate). Rajidesigns Rachel Comey Mars Bootie
  6. Equipment  Silk Blouse:  Among the synthetic imitations, these shirts are the real deal. Rajidesigns Equipment Blouses
  7. Salvatore Ferragamo’s Vara Pump:  These shoes are not only cute, sophisticated, easy to walk in, day-to-night material, and gorgeous, they’re also customizable!Rajidesigns Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Pump
  8. MaxMara’s Camel Coat: This is as iconic as coats get. The neutral color is perfect for anything you choose to wear underneath. Rajidesigns Maxmara Camel Coat
  9. Christian Louboutin Black Pumps:  These don’t need anything said about them.Rajidesigns Christian Louboutin Heels
  10. Hermes’ Silk Scarf:  I love scarves because they instantly make you look chic.  You can wear one on your head, around your neck, as a belt, or around your bag in many, many variations. Rajidesigns Silk Scarf
