In an age of new arrivals and limited-edition collaborations, it’s refreshing to see the , the biggest trends are barely noticeable. Forget logos and statement makers; classic-inspired staples are all the rage without anyone knowing about them. We call them non-trends—pieces that don’t pin down to a particular season, don’t call out a particular designer’s name, and most importantly, have a timeless appeal.
Fashion has gone down the minimalist path, where something as simple as a plain shirt or a pair of classic straight-leg jeans reigns supreme. From Bottega Veneta’s deceptively chic leather silhouettes to The Row’s effortlessly polished finish, both wardrobe staples reached new heights on last season’s runway. If there was ever a time to adopt the old adage “less is more,” it sure feels like it is now.
Of course, there are so many brands redefining modern simplicity, which means it can be hard to spot the best. But — as we always do — we’re making it easy to shop all the curtailed trends. Next, you’ll find classic styles, as well as a variety of ways to incorporate each “trend” into your wardrobe. Read on to discover and shop the need-to-know non-trends.
