THE FIVE FASHION INVESTMENT PIECES THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL
Is there such a thing as fashion investment? Umm, hell yeah! Did you know that some vintage Chanel bags have been sold for ten times the amount they were actually bought for?! Yes, you get the picture now, don't you? But that's not the only investment we're talking about here, sure it doesn't hurt to be involved in the business of luxury buying and selling yet there are some pieces that all women should consider investing in. If you're curious about why you need to invest in fashion pieces, boy oh boy, you CANNOT miss reading this right here! Investing in these essential pieces is like building the foundation for your wardrobe, the stronger the better!
1. STUNNING SHOES
Having a good pair of shoes that's both high on style and comfort is a primary need in the fashion pyramid. Good shoes make a good statement and often either the first or the last thing that people notice in an outfit which means that they spend the most amount of time looking at that particular item aka shoes. So the next time you think you can just wear your flip-flops or sneakers with all your outfits, think again! Now, why is having a good pair of shoes a good fashion investment? Let me break it down for you: firstly I don't see a reason in not investing in something good for your feet that carry the entire weight of your body! Really, are you going to take that risk? Secondly, good quality shoes will last you a long way and there's really no point in buying new shoes every two months. Instead, save up on that money and a buy a pair of shoes that's a) of amazing quality b) a good brand c) chic and classy. Look for a pair that you can wear with most outfits, like black ballet flats/loafers or nude medium heels. Here are some great options for you:
2. AN AMAZING HANDBAG
This is the only accessory that you really need to make an investment in, forget it all about the scarves and the belts and the brooches. Start with a great handbag first, a utilitarian item that actually deserves some big money. Invest in a medium size bag that can be both hand-held and strapped shouldered. Look for a versatile option that's classic and elegant, save your fancy whimsies some other piece. Going for a scratch-resistant fabric and colors like black, gray, tan, red will be an even better investment. Explore our favorite picks here:
3. A WHITE SHIRT
In my opinion, white shirts should share the same status as an LBD. You can wear a white shirt to any occasion, pair it up with anything and still look good. So why not spend on an item that is such a timeless classic? Invest in a crisp white shirt that fits you well on the shoulders and doesn't slouch up near the waist or the stomach. A well-fitted white shirt can transform any outfit, whether you wear it with your denims or skirts or shorts. Here are some of our best picks:
4. A GOOD PAIR OF JEANS
There is nothing worse than wearing an ill-fitted denim jeans! You wear jeans everywhere, when you go to work, or shopping, or meetings or dinner and frankly, nobody gives two shits if you repeat your pair of jeans every now and then. In fact, that's the whole point of jeans, to be worn over and over again. This is not really an item that you should be cost-cutting on, spend a little extra if needed to find the best fit for your body. Look for a denim that's soft, comfortable and fits you well. My advice would be to not go for a super-skinny or a super-flared denim, but to settle for a more straight cut denim style that suits your body in the best way possible. Check out these styles
5. ONE PIECE OF JEWELRY
Not everyone's big on jewelry and that's completely okay. We are not advocating wearing big jewels as a necessity, not at all. But having one simple piece that you can wear daily or most of the times is a good idea. It could be something as simple as a dainty chain or a ring or stud earrings. Make your investment even more special and significant by buying a meaningful piece of jewelry. Attach a memory or an emotion with the piece you buy and make your investment worth it, here's how you can do it.
