The art of investment shopping
Trends may come and go, but fashion is forever. As the world embraces slow fashion – eschewing inexpensively-made on-trend pieces that last just one season – we’re turning to those high-quality staples that never go out of style. Like the classic little black dress, there will always be an occasion to wear these investment pieces we’re lusting after.
The consummate classic, there will always be a reason to keep a little black dress in your wardrobe. Channel Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s with a simple sheath, or inspire envy a la Princess Diana and her “revenge dress” with a sexy off-the-shoulder number.
Less archetypal than the LBD perhaps, but no less essential in your wardrobe: you need a little black bag. Pair the LBB flawlessly with your little black dress, or use it to lend an air of timeless sophistication to any casual outfit.
The timeless trench
Navigate the transitional season in a classic trench that will carry you through anything from autumn fog to spring showers. From its origins in the 19th century Scottish military to the streets of Paris Fashion Week, the trench coat presents a harmonious partnership between form and function.
The tailored shirt
From the boardroom to the barre studio to the cocktail bar, you can never go wrong with a menswear-inspired tailored shirt. Whether it’s androgynous or feminine, oversized or fitted, paired with a blazer or thrown over a pair of leggings, the white button down is an eternal wardrobe staple.
The perfect pump
You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of neutral pumps. Make them pointy-toed, black or nude-hued, and sky high – and enjoy the kind of quiet glamour that pairs with any outfit and lasts a lifetime.
