Depending on budget or preferences, there are great items that I believe are worth investing in at some point in your life. As you get older, you realize you don't need 7 pairs of black flats, one or two pairs of really great black flats is actually a better use of my money AND space!
It’s more of an upfront investment (sure!), but the benefits are tenfold when you really think about it. Quality over quantity should be the focus.You should try investing in more quality pieces and paring down all the clutter and excess.
Slowly growing a wardrobe that you LOVE by investing in great QUALITY is way smarter than acquiring a bunch of crap you only halfway-kind-like. Don’t you think? No matter what anyone tells you, the satisfaction of buying one great piece will far surpass all the impulsive, random smaller-price point things that junk up your closet.
I'll be outlining a few pieces I think are worth a splurge you could invest in and why
A Great Bag
Every woman needs one classic bag that she absolutely loves. I know some bags can get a little outrageous (money-wise) so I’m not talking about a Chanel or anything – just a well-made, good-looking bag that makes you excited to wear. You know? Or one that makes you want to keep your stuff organized if you know what I mean? Plus, a good-looking classic bag (assuming it’s not super trendy or embellished) will never go out of style. Not only will it last you years and still look fab, but I think it goes without saying (well at least to me) that a good-looking bag (even if it’s not designer) can make an outfit. The simplest bag can be the perfect finishing touch to elevate an otherwise basic look!
No wardrobe goes without a knockout pair of pumps. They go with just about everything and are so flattering too!
Classic good-fitting blazer
Whether you work in an office or home, a good-looking, well-fitted blazer is a wardrobe must-have! You can choose whichever color best compliments your closet, but either way you’ll get tons of use. The fun thing is that you can also wear them for a sassy night out too.
Meaningful Jewelry/Classic pieces
I’m not talking anything extravagant here, like a Cartier bracelet. I’m talking about simple pieces that no matter the time of day or the year will be feminine and classic. A nice pair of pearl earrings, diamond studs, or gold studs! That’s all you really need to complete an outfit. Something delicate and dainty like a nice gold necklace will be an item that you will cherish.
Everyone, I mean everyone needs a little black dress. No excuses or argument there, right? I mean, a little black dress is just so easy, simple and always stylish. It doesn’t matter if your go-to LBD is dressy, casual or both; a good-looking (and well made) LBD will serve you well. They’re easy to dress up and down to fit the occasion. And can easily be worn with simple neutrals or with pops of color too for something more wow! It’s literally an outfit with infinite possibilities! My biggest suggestion here is to make sure it fits you perfectly.
This isn’t at the top of my priority list for investment pieces, but I do believe it deserves a little spotlight. A nice evening clutch that goes with everything is a great item to have in your wardrobe for those special occasions. Instead of buying 50 million clutches to match each individual dress, spend your money better on one clutch that goes with it all.
Denim/Good pair of Jeans
Jeans are absolutely my favorite thing to wear – no matter what the occasion. But when you wear jeans all the time you start to value them a little more and don’t mind spending a bit more to get higher quality and better fit.
Nice Button down Shirt
A nicer button down shirt will not only look better on you, but it will certainly feel better too. A simple button down is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own and you would always find new ways to style it. You can wear it to work for a super profesh look (like under a blazer or something). But you could also wear it buttoned up with a cute little neck-tie and a high-waisted skirt for something more sassy and cute.
