Fashion Investments

After my latest street style post of me wearing my essentials, I thought it would be a good idea to put together a Fashion Investments post. All the things I think are worth saving for, and put your money into, not something you're going to save for and only wear one season.

Handbag - Saint Laurent Monogramme Cabas Medium Leather Tote, £1435.
If you're going to invest in a designer handbag, make sure you go for a classic shape and colour. If you wear a lot of black, that's always a good call. But stick to neutral colours and designs, some other designers that do the perfect classic shapes: Givenchy, Fendi and Phillip Lim.

T-Shirt - T by Alexander Wang White Crew T Embroidery T-Shirt, £91.00.
Finding a good quality and nice fitting plain tee can seriously change your wardrobe. You may think it's expensive for a plain t-shrit, but you'll get more than enough wear out of it. I recently bought mine from Acne in the sale, it was a steal! So if you don't want to spend that much, wait till sale time.

Watch - Nixon Kensington, £170.00.
Having a classic watch is a basic essential and Nixon are great quality, without a really steep price. They're an investment worth making. Other designers to try for classic watches: Larsson & Jennings.

Jeans - J Brand Maria High Rise Skinny Jeans, £200.00.
I don't know how many pairs of black high street jeans I've had to buy over the years, but they mount up to way over £200.00. Having a pair of good quality and nice fitting jeans seems expensive, but when you think of how much you've spent on poor quality ones, it only seems sensible. Not only that, but during sale time, if you're quick, you're almost guaranteed to find a good black pair. If you're not a lover of black jeans, go for a denim, but always a classic shape whether that's straight or skinny. Other designers I would try for jeans: Acne, AG Jeans and True Religion.

Leather Jacket - Givenchy Black Leather Jacket, £3450.
A leather jacket is something I haven't yet crossed off my list of investments. The leather jacket has been around for years, and it's definitely not going anywhere. With the shape and style rarely changing, it's a jacket you can wear season after season and it always looks as if it's brand new. The perfect way to style up any outfit too. Other designers to look at for leather jackets: Acne, Saint Laurent and The Row.

Sunglasses - Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Sunglasses, £180.00
I've been lusting over these glasses for a while and still haven't managed to get my hands on them! They're a classic black frame that won't date or go out of fashion that can take you from Summer, all the way through to Spring. Always stick to a black or tortoise frame for an investment pair. Other designers that do classic sunglasses: Celine.

Trainers - Saint Laurent Court Classic Sneakers, £295.00
The classic sneaker isn't going out of fashion anytime soon, and it's something that goes with all outfits for pretty much any occasion. Saint Laurent do the perfect classic pair, and just alter them slightly each season so you can't tell if you're wearing the old seasons pair. Other designer sneakers to check out: Sandro Paris.
