24 Investment-Worthy Staples I Can Promise Have Major Longevity

As I've gotten older, it's become increasingly important to me to save up for wardrobe investments as opposed to just buying every bright, shiny object that strikes my fancy. I finally acknowledged that said bright, shiny objects were keeping me from buying the quality things I had been wanting for a long time, and lately, I've been making it a point to diligently save my funds for items that are actually worth the splurge.

So what makes an item worth the splurge, you ask? In a word, longevity. If it's something that you can wear for years (and multiple times within each year), the cost per wear is low, which justifies the splurge. With this longevity factor in mind, I curated a selection of some of my favorite bags, shoes, clothing items, and accessories that will truly improve your style (or at least a lot of your outfits). So if you're ready to make an investment, or at least start saving up, keep scrolling to find out why these 24 items are so special.
