Some things never go out of style and when it comes to choosing these pieces, it’s definitely worth the splurge. These are the five fashion investments we think you need to make.

A tailored blazer is the ultimate fashion investment

A well-tailored, wool blazer in navy or black is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. It can be worn all year-round and works well with just about anything. It’s definitely worth spending a little more on, because, not only will it give you loads of outfit options, a precisely tailored piece is always more flattering. Opt for a single-breasted style that sits just at your hip and includes slightly padded shoulders to keep its shape.

A structured leather handbag

Let’s face it, there’s something undeniably attractive about a designer bag. More so, in fact, when it’s a structured shape (such as a tote) that boasts genuine leather fabric. Go for a tan or basic black hue with minimal detailing for a look that will never date.

Statement earrings

Treat yourself to some classic bling with a pair of inimitable stud earrings featuring a precious stone. Pearls and diamonds are the most versatile choices as they go with anything and can be worn on various occasions too.

A gorgeous silk blouse

There’s nothing quite like the feel of silk on your skin, which is why a beautiful silk blouse is a fashion must-have. Look for one in white or cream, then pair it with everything from jeans and trousers to pencil skirts and even under tunics. Choose a style that nips in at the waist for a figure-flattering look.

The perfect pair of jeans

Denim is a perennial favourite. A dark-washed designer pair that hugs your curves is a definite fashion investment. Avoid distressing, rips and embellishments that can date the look. Go for a style that sits comfortably on your waist, is fitted at the thigh and boasts a slightly flared bottom. A fashion investment that’s definitely worth it!
