It can be tempting to focus on constantly staying on top of the latest trends with fast fashion options, but there are certain pieces that are actually worth splurging on. You know, the kind that you will wear forever and never want to replace. Read on for our picks of the 10 items that you should invest in and why.
Burberry Trench, $1895: Few items have as iconic a status as the Burberry trench. Aside from the functional elements of its design, like rain flaps and its signature breathable Gabardine fabric, the trench is a perfectly tailored topper that makes any outfit look instantly pulled together.
The diamond stud
MDS Diamond Studs, $600: A pair of classic diamond studs truly is your jewelry box’s best friend. Now, when mismatched earrings and ear parties are basically the norm, you can wear these sparklers as a matching set or pull them apart and pair with another fave, since they go with anything and everything.
The black pump
Christian Louboutin Black Pumps, $675: A pointy-toe pump never goes out of style. In black nappa leather, these Louboutins are the perfect, with just-high-enough height to add a ladylike finishing touch to any look.
The cashmere sweater
M. Patmos Cashmere V Neck, $495: In an always flattering v-neck, a lightweight cashmere sweater plays well with denim, leather, silk and pretty much any other fabric. The ultimate desk-to-dinner piece, you can simply switch out a few key accessories to dress this up or down, sexy or staid.
The moto jacket
Alexander Wang Moto Jacket, $1,250: A rich, leather jacket is something you can literally keep for life. As the material only gets softer the more it’s worn in, you’ll have a piece that not only adds instant cool to your look but fits like a glove.
Manolo Blahnik Penny Loafer, $745: A pair of loafers might remind you of your dad, but they’re surprisingly versatile for a modern woman. Styled with a dress, cropped trousers or jeans, these are the shoes you can live in all week (and weekend) long.
Fendi Satchel, $3,950: Every woman should have a proper top handle bag. Not only is black leather (with a hit of leopard print) something that will stand the test of time, but the crossbody strap gives you options. Chic and professional, this is the quality bag you will carry with you for every grown up moment (think interviews and the like).
The collar necklace
Jennifer Fisher Collar Necklace, $775: A sleek, collar necklace works on its own for a minimal look, or layered with longer strands for an edgier vibe. The slight curve of this one is especially flattering and in 14k gold plate, you can be sure the color stays true no matter how many times you wear it (from the office to date night and back again).
The statement cuff
Vanessa Lianne Cuff, $999: A statement cuff is an instant outfit maker that upgrades any basic. If you’re someone who doesn’t like to think too much about accessorizing, this cuff in 18k gold plate is an instant showstopper – no other jewelry required.
The aviator shades
Tom Ford Aviator Sunglasses, $525: With all the fun, affordable sunnies out there now, it can be tempting to go cheap, but your eyes deserve better. With 100% UV protection, these classic aviators will protect you from the sun, last you forever, and always look chic.
