Fashion Items That Are Worth The Investment

What fashion items are worth spending your money on? In a world of affordable fast fashion, it’s so easy to buy the cheapest item to save money. But are you really saving money?

Most fast fashion items are made with cheap materials and won’t stand the test of time. Here are a list of fashion items that are worth the investment that will last and be in style for many years to come.

High Quality Jewellery

Theres nothing worse than seeing jewellery that has tarnished or jewellery that has made your skin turn green.

Now, I don’t mean investing thousands of dollars in diamonds and gold etc. I mean investing in high quality jewellery such as sterling silver, fresh water pearls, crystals, gold filled or gold vermeil from high quality brands that will last and get your price per wear.

Adding these higher quality jewellery pieces to your collection will add a high quality delicate detail to your outfit, and will stand the test of time in comparison to more affordable fashion jewellery.

Trench Coat

The trench coat is a timeless classic that every girl must have in her wardrobe. They can be worn throughout the year and styled many different ways. Classic Hollywood stars like Audrey Hepburn wore them in the 1950’s and they are still very relevant and in style now.

Trench coats come in many different colours, materials  and price points. Burberry is famous for the classic Burberry trench coat. However, there are many higher end fashion brands that have gorgeous trench coats at a fraction of the price. Just make sure you’re investing in one made of high quality material.

Leather Belt

A leather belt is another simple leather accessory that is worth the investment. Belts are a great way to add some shape to an outfit, cinching in your waist and showing off your curves, it is also a great way to add a contrast in colour to a solid coloured outfit.

Leather belts come in so many different colours, thicknesses and types of buckles. Make sure you stick to a neutral colour and a simple and delicate buckle.

Perfume

Investing in one or multiple high quality perfumes will allow you to have a few scents for specific days, seasons and occasions. Whether you’re going to work, a summer date or a winter dinner, you’ll be set with the perfect scent.

Lower quality perfumes although can be very affordable, some don’t last as long and/or have a very sweet scent. At the very least have one or two high quality perfumes in your collection.

Neutral Pumps

The neutral pump shoe is a classic staple that is needed in any girls wardrobe. Even though it may not be worn all the time, they will be there when the time is needed.

It is essential to invest in a neutral toned pump like nude, beige, tan, but black can be a neutral tone for some women.

Leather Summer Sandals

We all know the famous Oran sandals by Hermès are a very popular choice for a summer sandal.  Although they are a gorgeous style and look super comfortable, they are quite pricey for a leather slide in my opinion.

Many brands have adopted a similar style of a summer leather slide that is a fraction of the price of the Oran sandal. Whatever brand you invest in, this style shoe is very chic and timeless and comes in multiple colours. Linked below are some similar high quality styles.

Winter Coat

If you want your winter coat to last for decades, then you really should be investing in a high quality one made of natural fabrics. Making sure you stick to classic shapes, that fit you well, a natural warm fabric such as wool or cashmere, in a neutral tone such as camel, brown or tan.

As along as you care for your winter coat by getting is dry-cleaned regularly, it will last for years and stand the test of time.

A timeless and classic leather handbag in a neutral colour is also a great investment. You want to invest in a handbag that has superior craftsmanship, is durable and in a high quality leather.
