After many disagreements with my mom, in my younger years, over my outfit choices, I finally began dressing in a more classic style later during my teen years. Now, as a young woman, I endlessly admire women with classic style and a truly timeless wardrobe. Although, I might branch out a bit here, and there. For the most part, I aim to keep my closet stocked with classic staples that I can rely on being in style year, after year. 

Whether you are shopping for your wife, sister, mother, daughter, or even yourself, I thought that you would appreciate a gift guide specifically for the ladies in your life with classic style! These items are all products and clothing pieces that I adore and use season, after season. I will also include a list of stores that you I head to when searching for the perfect wardrobe staples. 

Gift Guide: Classic Style

Good Quality Jeans

Any girl with classic style knows the importance of investing in good quality jeans! Once you wear a good pair of jeans, there is no going back. I love anything by J.Brand!


Vests are a must for Fall. They keep you warm and stylish in the cool weather. J. Crew has so many classic options. If you want to splurge, I adore my Burberry vest!

Basic T-Shirt

As a girl who lives a t-shirt, I am partial to this essential. I can never have too many white, or black, or grey, t-shirts. They are the foundation of a good wardrobe and can be worn various ways!


I have several cardigans that are near, and dear, to my heart. My mom taught me at a young age that I should always carry one with me. Even in the summer! You just never know when you are going to get cold! This one is my favorite!


I recently added this coat to my wardrobe, after the J.Crew Black Friday sale! They have been running so many great deals lately and it’s the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping. I instantly fell in love with this coat and officially think every girl needs it in her closet!

Pencil Skirt

No matter the occasion, a classic style pencil skirt is sure to do the trick!


Not only do I have too many Little Black Dresses, and I’m now in love with this one. But, no matter the occasion, I am never left empty-handed or with nothing to wear. The LBD is a closet staple and any girl needs a few good ones in her closet. From work to party, the LBD does not disappoint! 

Riding Boots

Riding Boots are my go-to shoes during the colder months. You can find them in many different brands, however, Frye makes my favorite pair. 

Ballet Flats

Wear them to work, pair them with jeans, ballet flats can do no wrong in my book. My favorites are from Chanel and are completely worth the splurge. Runner-up is Tory Burch. She makes a beautiful flat and plenty of options and color combinations!

Classic Pumps

A pair of classic black and nude pumps are definitely a great gift idea. If you go with something simple is style, reasonable in height and a neutral color, you will be able to pair these beauties with anything from a date night dress or work attire to distressed denim and a t-shirt.


I have always been an accessories girl and there are so many amazing classic style accessories that you can find. I could probably write an entire post on just classic style accessories! If you would like to see that, let me know! This hat is one of my favorites and I wear these sunglasses everyday.


You probably already know that I love David Yurman jewelry. I love how classic, yet still very modern it is. Mostly, I love how they mix metals so frequently. I am definitely a mixed metals kind of gal! These earrings are my number one essential. I have been debating writing a post all about jewelry, my favorite local jewelry store and more. Let me know if that is something you would like to see!

Places to Shop 

I hope that you find this post helpful, whether you are shopping for yourself, your wife, your mom, sister or daughter. I hope that you find something that inspires you to find the perfect gift for a lucky lady in your life. Classic Style is a passion of mine, hence my blog name, Timeless Taste. I truly have looked back on many times in my life and regretted specific outfit choices. I strived daily to have fun with my wardrobe but to also invest in pieces that will last many years. 

What are your favorite classic pieces in your wardrobe?!
