When you go shopping, you’ll often see items that are well above your normal price range and many that are within a comfortable range.
But when should you splurge out on new gear?
Below, we’ll explore those must-have items that are worth spending more on because they’re an ongoing investment (unlike many trend items that’ll be here today and gone tomorrow):
When you invest in a high-quality pair of denim jeans, you’ll almost guarantee that they’ll be indestructible. And because they’re something you can wear every day without the risk of them going out of fashion, they’re always going to be a staple piece in your wardrobe.
So getting a pair that fit and fit well is imperative. Try to opt for classic cuts that will last for years, both in quality and style.
Jackets and Blazers
These wardrobe items can instantly create a smart outfit, whether it’s for a night out or work. What’s more, you can almost always tell how good a quality a blazer or jacket is, depending on how it fits, what the finish is like and what material it’s made of.
With companies like Belstaff offering top quality designs, investing in this wardrobe essential means you can throw it over nearly any get-up for an immediate style upgrade.
Just like the above, it’s clear when you’ve made an investment in this area. So when you next go suit shopping try to avoid any trend-led items, sticking to classic cuts that fit well and flatter your figure (e.g. pencil skirts or straight trousers). These items will effortlessly transform throughout the seasons and will last for many years to come.
To finish, buy more affordable tops, shirts and other accessories to complete the look and remain on-trend.
Because you wear these almost every day, it’s a good idea to splurge on shoes you know are going to be comfortable for long periods of time. Spending a bit more on this footwear won’t just keep your feet feeling happy but you won’t be finding holes in the soles every few weeks either!
To make sure you’re warm throughout the cooler winter months, try to find a winter coat that boasts luxurious quality. When you spend a bit more on this area of your wardrobe, you’re more likely to get high-quality fillings like down instead of cheaper (and colder) polyester fillings. Therefore, these coats will keep you comfortable and warm throughout the harsher winter months and won’t lose their style or shape for many years.
Overall, there are some items of clothing that are worth investing in. And because they’re such classic items, there’s no need to worry that they’ll fall out of trend in the next few years, giving you peace of mind that you’re getting the most bang for your buck (while looking pretty dapper, we might add!).
