Classic clothes never go out of style. When you think of classic fashion, think of the clothes worn by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Nicole Kidman, and Tyra Banks.

What is it about certain articles of clothing that make them classic? It's all about the cut, design, and fit.
When considering what to wear for Easter, think of classic designs using lighter colors, textures, and prints. Most people think of pastels at Easter, but pastels can be aging when worn incorrectly.

The general rule of thumb for Easter wear is to leave the pale pastels to the very young, or to the elderly.
