The black and white combo has always stood the test of time, no matter the decade or design style. Black and white is a sophisticated and timeless color combination but sometimes, I punch up the combo with accent colors such as red (like my dress in photo number 2). These are probably my two of the most timeless looks.

Tips on How to Keep your Timeless Fashion Pieces Looking Vibrant
Fashion trends may come and go but those who have a good eye for fashion can easily spot classic pieces that can stand the test of time. My mom is one such person, she has always been a fashionista with impeccable taste and is still careful in choosing her clothes until now. But that’s not all, she is also very particular in handling her timeless fashion pieces.
This is my mommy Annette! Ganda noh? Her beauty is timeless, want to know her secret?
The video you’ve just seen is based on a true story ? ?
My mom has high standards for washing her clothes. If the laundry woman’s job doesn’t meet her standards, she would wash it again to ensure efficient clean.
As such, you would often find my mom re-washing her own clothes. She is now 58 years old and she still prefers to wash her timeless fashion pieces. This is prompted me to try my luck and join the Electrolux Contest some time ago. There were 3 Electrolux Washing Machine to be won by sharing FASHIONCARE tips.
It turns out luck was in my favor because I won first prize. We now have a brand new Electrolux Front Load Washing Machine.
Since my mom taught me a lot about fashion care, I decided to reward her with the prize I won. Aside from being confident that the machine will meet her wash standards, it’s also my way of showing that my love for her is as timeless as her taste in fashion. Speaking of timeless, wouldn’t you want to know how to care for good fashion finds and maintain their timeless style? Aside from FASHIONCARE tips I shared before, here are some maintenance tips to keep your timeless fashion pieces looking vibrant and new for a long, long time.
- Look at Care Labels Carefully. Most clothing pieces today come with care labels. These small tags usually have washing, drying and ironing instructions on them. Read and follow these instructions carefully to preserve the look of your clothes. You can take this step a bit further by looking up care instructions for special fabrics like leather, silk, or embroidered fabrics.
- Use Different Strokes for Different Clothes. Don’t wash all your clothes in the same manner. Some clothes require gentle care while other need tough cleaning. This is also the reason why you need a washing machine with settings for your different fashion care needs.
- Know your Fabrics. This is essential in determining how to wash your clothes properly. Thick fabrics that are heavily stained may need some soaking while delicates require quick gentle wash only. Delicates include fabrics like linen, silk, wool, and embellished fabrics. Soft cotton and thin linen is also considered as delicate fabric as they may get easily frayed during main wash. Handwashing is usually recommended for delicate fabrics. As for thick and sturdy fabrics, they can withstand thorough and vigorous washing. There is little to worry about when it comes to these tough cloths but it is recommended to turn jeans inside out before washing.
- Check detergent and bleach warnings for delicate clothing. Your timeless fashion pieces can also be damaged by strong detergents or improper use of bleach. So be on a look out for these warnings in your care labels.
- Sort, Sort, and Sort. Just like mining for gold, your laundry needs to be sorted several times to make sure that your clothes get the best care. It’s not simply sorting light from coloured or dark clothing pieces, you also have to consider the type of fabric used. A properly segregated laundry pile should have separate piles for each of these: underwear, delicates, cotton and light fabrics, denims, towels, beddings, and special care fabrics. Once these items are segregated, you can separate the whites and light colored fabrics from dark colored ones.
- Make Sure You Have the Right Settings for Your Piles. If you are hand washing your clothes then the settings pertain to your water, detergent, bleach ratio. Use delicate soap for delicate fabrics and stronger ones with longer soaking period for thick and dirt prone fabrics. For those who are using washing machines, check your washer and dryer settings. As for Electrolux Washing Machine users, well good news for you as your machine has more that wash and dry settings. You can tailor fit your settings to your fashion care needs with just a push of a button or a spin of a dial.
