We'd love to have a wardrobe full of the trendiest items and the easiest way for this to happen is to scour bargain outlets. While indulging in fashion bargains may be fun, you might want to spend a bit more on rather expensive but durable clothing that will stand the test of time. Here are five fashion pieces that every gal should invest in.
A Pair Of Low-Heeled Shoes
It's true what they say about good shoes — they will take you to good places (or rather, better places). And a good pair of shoes should make you feel confident and comfortable. Low-heeled shoes are the perfect compromise between comfort and style. These very versatile yet chic shoes can be paired with both a casual or a formal outfit.
A Functional Shoulder Bag
You can't skimp on investing in a functional shoulder bag, and by functional, we mean roomy and easy to carry. Your best bet would be a bag with a simple design that gives the vibe of elegance. Before you buy an investment bag though, the important thing to remember is to determine whether a particular bag can hold all of your everyday essentials.
A Little Black Dress
Speaking of timeless pieces, the little black dress is proven to never go out of style. There's a cut and fit for just about any woman's figure. Depending on the occasion, you can dress it up or down to suit the mood of the event. It's the perfect go-to dress anywhere, anytime!
A Pair Of Jeans
Like the pair of magical jeans in the movie The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, every gal's jeans should be dependable, durable and stylish. It's one of the few items in your closet that you can wear two times in a row (sometimes without even washing) and no one would blink an eye. You can easily style it by adding patches and belts and pairing it with almost any top. With a good pair of jeans, the possibilities are endless.
A Well-Fitted Blazer
A blazer can transform any outfit. Throw on a blazer and you can look like you put a lot of thought and effort into your outfit. It's especially handy when you have a sudden business meeting to attend and your basic outfit is not quite appropriate. With just a single blazer, you'll look corporate-ready in no time. Just a gentle reminder to pick a blazer that is well-fitted; you can even tailor it if you prefer.
