People always say quality over quantity, and although it seems to be true, it’s often difficult to convince yourself to spend so much on a single item rather than distributing the same amount on several things that you would like to purchase. For some items, such as t-shirts, quantity is essential. But the same does not go for everything in your closet. Here are the five wardrobe investment pieces that are worth splurging on and making sure you choose quality over anything else.
By the time she is an adult, every woman should have a nice watch. Both functional and stylish, an elegant watch can accessorize your outfit while maintaing an air of professionalism – and it can even keep you from always running late, or maybe not. There are plenty of designs and colors to choose from, like a beautiful silver watch with a few diamonds or a simple rose gold colored one. No matter your personal style, there is a sophisticated watch worth investing in that’s right for you.
2. Quality Bag
It is easy to differentiate nice quality bags from cheaper made ones. Though many women like to have several bag options depending on their outfits, it is important to have a staple bag that you splurged on and whose quality is obvious. You may not have to go for a top designer name like Givenchy or Balenciaga, but it is essential that your purse is made with nice leather and other high quality materials. It should also reflect your personal style and be able to fit all of your essential items without any issue.
3. Leather Jacket
Same goes for a leather jacket as with a purse – quality is key! Black is always a good idea if you are investing in an expensive jacket, as it goes with absolutely everything and is also quite slimming and elegant.
When it comes to shoes, more expensive ones are usually slightly more comfortable and definitely last longer – a worthy investment. Stick to neutral colors that you will be able to wear with anything: nude, black or even grey. Avoid trends that may soon be going out of style like snakeskin or glitter, because you want to be able to wear these as long as possible.
It may seem crazy, but perfect fitting jeans are hard to come by. Usually most pairs of jeans fit well, but could be altered slightly. Try brands such as Rag and Bone or J-Brand which in my experience can make me feel and look better than the average pair of jeans. And think about how often you find yourself wearing jeans… At parties, for restaurant dinners, even when you’re relaxing, it’s definitely worth the investment.
Now go out and find the perfect match for your investment pieces – but make sure to save up for it!
