One of the great ongoing battles of a fashionista is what you should spend real money on versus what you should buy on the cheap. We all live in this struggle of buying fashion items that at some point in life we realize we don’t like or need them anymore.
In a world more and more saturated with fast-fashion brands, it seems that spending as little money as possible is always the goal—but is that really smart?
The secret is not spending all your savings on seasonal items because, we all know that trends are easy coming and easy going but, at the same time, we also know that every woman must own at least few items worth the splurge.
Of course, I’m talking about not so cheap items but you’ll have the guarantee you’ll be wearing them all over again until they really go out of fashion or you simply can’t wear them anymore because they got irreversible damages.
To find out just what they are, I’ve prepared you a list with the pieces I think every woman should invest in. Here’s a list of six essentials which merit your hard-earned cash.
#1 A great handbag
I would definitely invest in a wonderful bag because it’s a day to day item. Be it a satchel, a frame bag, a tote, a messenger or a duffel bag, it’s really your personal choice with whatever gives you the utility you need and makes you feel comfortable.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be a designer’s bag but it should be that wonderful that you should never get bored of it. I strongly recommend you a qualitative material like leather or suede in a neutral color like black, nude, or brown. It will go with absolutely everything in your dressing.
#2 Beautiful shoes for every season
Remember it’s all about comfort! So you need is a beautiful pair of flats and a classic pair of heels. Select pairs that give a bit of personality to any outfit, but at the same time can be paired with almost anything. I also like to make sure I have a great pair of flats that I can wear on the days I know I’ll be on my feet all day, but still need to look dressed.
#3 A trench coat
The perfect trench coat will never go out of style and can be easily matched to many looks. Color and material doesn’t really matter this time, all you must take into account is to be suitable for a really really cold weather.
#4 A well-fitting blazer
Another investment piece is a great-fitting blazer that easily suits everything in your wardrobe, from dresses and skirts to trousers and jeans. There are just so many ways to wear it!
#5 The little black dress
An investment in a perfectly tailored little black dress or more is not at all a bad investment. You never know when you’ll need to make a quick change, and this fashion statement is always appropriate.
That was my advice in spending big money on the items that really, really deserve your savings. Don’t forget to subscribe to our free newsletter for more online deals and fashion trends.
