5 Investment Pieces That Will Keep On Giving

4 months ago

When it comes to fashion, lots of what I buy is impulse or trend-related. I love it there and then but I probably won't be wearing it next season. However, there are certain items that are a guaranteed investment, because you know you'll be pulling it out of the wardrobe season after season. For me, it's these 5 things...

Classic Leather Biker

I've said it before and I'll say it again, a classic leather jacket is an essential for every girls wardrobe. Here is one area I tend to treat myself, not only because the more expensive jackets are just so damn good, but because they last longer, they are eternally stylish and I'll be wearing them still in 20 years. This YSL is perfection.

A Beautiful White Shirt

Shirts come in all shapes and cuts so you can always find the perfect one for YOUR figure. I wear white shirts with blue, black and white denim, left loose or tucked in. I wear it with high-waisted tailored trousers, or a high-waisted A-line or pencil midi. I wear it with denim shorts or open, over a sundress. The possibilities are limitless. Therefore, it's the ultimate investment.

Traditional Trench

Now, loads of brands design trenches but there's just something about a classic Burberry that polishes any look like nothing else. It's a jacket, but it's an all-season jacket and can be worn with so many outfits. When it comes to trenches you can really tell if someone has invested in an expensive one.

Don't think of trenches as just for winter. Imagine the above Burberry, open and with this dress and these slip-ons on a beaut summer evening.

The Perfect Blazer

I think every girl should have 1 (or more) perfectly tailored blazers ready at their whim. I wear a sharp blazer with a chic pair of leather trousers or any dressy evening look. I also wear it with ripped, boyfriend jeans and sneakers. It makes every outfit look 10x more expensive. This McQueen is simply fabulous.

For something a little more classic, I adore all 3 of these shapes.

THE Handbag

I really don't think you can get much more "classic" than these 2 picks. Gucci is having a serious moment in fashion right now but this shape is beautifully timeless. This YSL tote will forever be every fashionistas best friend.

Investment pieces, for me, are timeless, classic and still beautifully statement.

They tell a story of your style but one that can last you a lifetime. I love to curate inexpensive, trend-led items, but there will always be room for a little extravagant investment piece from time to time.
