5 Fashion Items That Are Worth The Investment

We get it: life is expensive and shopping for clothes is no exception. With new styles and designs coming out almost daily it can be difficult to rationalize spending hundreds of dollars on trends that will die in a few seasons. But there are some pieces that every woman should spend a little bit more money on with the expectation that they will be staples that will be the backbone of your wardrobe for years.

1/ Little Black Dress: As cliche as it may sound, the little black dress is one of the most important items in a woman’s closet and worth the investment. Simple and chic is always the way to go when spending the money on your dream LBD—like this Rag & Bone open-back slip dress that can be styled year round.

2/ The Perfect Pump: Whether you prefer heels or flats on the daily, every woman needs a go-to pair of pumps for special occasions. We love snakeskin because it acts as a neutral that can be paired with almost anything and is a great alternative to a basic black. We love the Manolo Blahnik BB Watersnake Pump.

3/ Everyday Leather Bag: It is no secret that for women the key to success is a big bag that can hold all their stuff. An accessory that is so essential in everyday life deserves the investment. Try the Prada Soft Leather Shopper Tote for an option that takes you from work to the weekend.

4/ Daily Accessory: A classic piece of jewelry that you can wear every day is a must in any woman’s closet. The Tiffany & Co. Infinity Cuff in sterling silver and rose gold is a simple piece that can pair perfectly with a watch. Or stack alongside other bangles for the perfect arm party addition.

5/ That “Thing you Can’t Stop Thinking About”: Have you ever walked by some item that you just had to have and then you look at the price tag and it is way out of your budget? Here’s a tip: If it is really special and you cannot stop thinking about it, buy it. You’ll find a way to afford it and you get a great unique piece for the rest of your life. We are personally lusting over these red Jimmy Choo Kaytrin suede platform sandals that we would wear yearround as the statement heel of our dreams.
