Great investment pieces are like fine wines—they just keep getting better with age.

Timeless enough to wear for many years and then pass down to your daughter, these gorgeous pieces are worth the splurge!
Keep reading to see which five wardrobe staples you'll be able to mix and match for decades to come.
A sophisticated watch in your favorite metal makes the perfect complement to any outfit, whether it be professional, formal, or casual. Although rather expensive, the right watch could become an heirloom thanks to durability and a classic look.
Simple diamond or pearl studs are effortless boosts to every look. You really could wear them every single day for the next 40 years and never miss a stylish beat.
A warm, luxurious fur or faux-fur coat makes the perfect staple for layering over your looks when the weather gets cold. Because winter only lasts for a few months, it makes sense to invest in a classic coat that will stay wearable for many years.
A sophisticated pair of flats will add a glamorous touch to your dressier looks, even after heels stop being worth the sacrifice of comfort.
Perhaps the penultimate investment in all of fashion, quilted Chanel bags have already proven that they stand the test of time. If you're looking to invest in arm candy for the ages, look no further than this instantly recognizable and completely memorable piece.
