The Oldest Items In Our Wardrobes That We Still Wear (PHOTOS)

As style editors we are always anxious to see the upcoming trends for the season and start plotting our wishlists, but making way for the new does not necessarily mean getting rid of the old. Some of our most-loved items are the ones that we scored a long time ago, and they are also the pieces that never cease to transform an outfit from blah to brilliant.

Whether it's a skirt we got when we were 12, a pair of perfectly beat-up Converse, or threadbare cutoffs that are too comfy to toss, there are some items that we just wear and wear and wear, until they should probably be thrown away, donated or recycled.

Whether you're a clothes hoarder or you purge your closet regularly, everyone can agree that the oldies are often the goodies.
