Although trends come and go, some items in your closet never stop being stylish.
These are the staples you can invest in, knowing that you’ll be able to bring them out year after year and they’ll suit a multitude of uses and occasions.
Although it seems counter-intuitive, you’ll also save money in the long run by investing in a few key capsule pieces, rather than replacing trend-led clothing every year. Buying fewer items that last longer is also better for the environment and reduces waste.
Plus, with the addition of a few basics and accessories, you’ll never have the problem of having a massive closet but nothing to wear.
Here’s a list of the best investment pieces that every stylish woman needs to own.
- A black leather bag
A classic purse doesn’t have to come with a designer price tag. A timeless style made from good quality leather will last a lifetime if it’s well-kept.
- A trench coat
The classic trench coat design hasn’t changed in a hundred years, it’s the only cover-up you’ll need in spring and fall.
- A cashmere sweater
A good cashmere sweater will look luxurious and feel amazing on your skin, just be extra careful when washing it to avoid shrinking wool.
- Black pumps
Black flats are fantastic for those times when you want to look smart but don’t want the hassle of heels. If you choose well and look after the leather, they’ll last for years.
- Tailored black trousers
Black trousers really do go with everything! Invest in a good quality, classic pair and have them tailored to fit you and you’ll upgrade your entire look.
