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.
This Burberry bag is a newer style on the scene, and it's the perfect size, in my opinion. It's one of those bags that you can carry every day and you never have to swap for another one (unless you want to) because it complements everything.
Wandler's latest handbag release instantly became an It bag after debuting just a few weeks ago. I think that the subtle '90s shape and holds-everything-without-being-too-big size make it an excellent contender for your new go-to investment bag.
First of all, those buttons. Second of all, Kate Middleton has worn a similar Alessandra Rich dress on repeat occasions. Third of all, it looks amazing with red shoes (always a good thing, if you ask me).
I can't stress enough how comfortable and walkable By Far boots are. I love the heel height and square toe on these and that they work with every pair of jeans I own (since they're slim around the ankles).
I love this mini wallet because so many bags are mini these days (which doesn't seem to be likely to change anytime soon), and the idea of going sans wallet doesn't mesh well with my hyper-organized side.
