With new styles circulating the fashion life cycle every few weeks, trends are changing faster than we can keep up with. Fast fashion retailers often cause more harm than good, due to the negative effects it has on the environment. That's why here at DoubleTake we are proud to help the environment by circulating loved pieces that never go out of style. Trends can be hard to assimilate into your everyday wardrobe, and usually have a short lived lifespan. A smart shopper is one that purchases items that will last them a lifetime, and can be worn many different ways. Here are our favorite timeless outfit combinations straight from the DoubleTake website. If you’re a timeless, classic dresser then these foolproof outfits are for you.
1. Blouse And Midi Skirt

Spring is knocking at your door and DoubleTake is here to answer. This is the perfect outfit for a warm Spring day, it incorporates floral patterns with sophisticated colors. Army green and navy may not traditionally go together, but when paired with this Purple Palm Print Midi Skirt, it creates a mature and stylish outfit.
2. Puff Sleeves And A Tiered Skirt
You can never go wrong with a puffed sleeve top, they are elegant and automatically make your outfit look more expensive. To tie in all the Spring colors, we paired the Pink Floral Top with the Olive Twill Skirt, the Chloe Olive Bag and the Fuschia Pumps.
3. Wrap Sweater and Trousers

Here is an upscale alternative to your usual “going out” look. Leave the skinny jeans and bodysuits in the past and step into a new and improved wardrobe with chic outfits like this one. The gold accents throughout the outfit make for a glamorous yet classy statement. We can promise that this look will never go out of style.
4. Classic Blouse And Tailored Pants

Does this blouse look familiar? One best kept secret that women with beautiful style don’t want you to know is that they often repurpose pieces for another outfit. The best way to elevate your personal style is to invest in high quality pieces over high quantity pieces. That means wearing the same top with different trousers, and voila a brand new outfit.
5. Puff Sleeves And Tailored Pants
You’re probably thinking, “I've seen all of these items before” and now you’re finally getting the hang of it. While we are fans of being outfit repeaters, that doesn’t mean your peers will be outfit rememberers. If anything, they’ll be praising you for your brilliant styling tricks, so get ready to receive all the compliments. If you love a piece that you invested in, why not wear it again and again? Not to mention we just made packing for vacation so much easier for you.
6. Blazer And Trousers
Blazer: Weekend Max Mara Navy Linen Blazer Jacket Pants: Roland Mouret Black Slit Front Pants Shoes: Michael Kors Collection Gabrielle Navy Leather Knot Sandals Bag: Miu Miu Black Textured Leather Small Shoulder Bag
7. Blouse And Trousers
Top: Givenchy Cream Silk Gold Studded Collar Blouse Pants: Roland Mouret Black Slit Front Pants Shoes: Tory Burch Eddie Gold Leather Ballet Flats Bag: Tom Ford x Carine Roitfeld Carine Ivory Leather Shoulder Bag Bracelet: Jenny Bird Gold Groove Cuff Bracelet
This look is the holy grail of non trendy outfits, with a neutral blouse and black pants, and simple gold accents sprinkled throughout. You can wear this outfit all year round, add a pair of sunglasses in the Summer, and an overcoat in the Winter.
