In a (fashion) world of neon bracelet cuffs, over-sized denim, houndstooth manicures and elaborate earrings, it can be easy to forget that some fashion pieces and accessories will always be fitting. Keeping these trend-defying essentials in your closet and jewelry box will ensure that you always look your best, no matter where you’re headed.

 Pearl earrings. A pretty pair of pearls belongs in every woman’s jewelry box. Whether you’re getting ready for work in a corporate environment or preparing for a fancy dinner, pearls will go great with any dress or hairstyle you choose. Even though these classic pieces may have been passed down to you by your mother or grandmother, you’ll look anything but matronly in them. The accessories are also perfect if you’re going for an Old Hollywood glamour look.  Pearl earrings can even give casual outfits a bit more of  a polish. Here are some examples in the following photos:

Next Up: The Trench Coat

The trench coat. A tailored trench coat in a neutral shade definitely says “fashionable grown woman.” The coat is appropriate for the workplace, church, or a dinner date with friends. Whether you’re wearing a business suit or jeans and a t-shirt, you’ll always look well put-together in a trench coat. You can make it your own by finding a coat with a textured collar, a flared design, or wearing it with a patterned scarf. A standout pair of heels is also a fitting accessory for a trench coat.
