5 Investment Pieces Your Wardrobe Needs

As a woman, one of the hardest fashion decisions to make is the age-old battle between investment and trends. It’s easy to be swept up in the world of fast fashion and want as many items of clothing for as little money. But it’s time to look at the 5 pieces that are worth investing in.

1. The perfect pair of jeans

Every woman knows jean shopping can be described as a form of light torture. From badly lit changing rooms to sizes never being the same across different brand names, it’s enough to bring you to tears. But it’s something to persevere with because the perfect pair of jeans can be a true staple in your wardrobe. The key is to try on as many pairs as you can, research has shown that most women will try on at least four pairs or more before finding a pair that fits.

Once you’ve found the perfect fit, it’s time to think about what colour wash will integrate into your existing wardrobe easily. Most women go for black denim as it is always seen as a flattering wash and is likely to be paired with most items you currently own or will buy in the future.

2. A feelgood dress

It’s also worth investing in a dress that makes you feel like a million dollars when you put it on. The key is to find a dress that feels like it was made specifically for you, this is easily achieved by embracing your body type and showing off your favourite features. Feeling comfortable in a dress will make you ooze confidence

There are so many women’s dresses to choose from both instore and online, so it is worth trying on as many as you can and learning what works for your body shape. You can use this as your excuse to go shopping!

3. Tailored blazer

A woman’s wardrobe is not complete without a classic tailored blazer. They are a great addition to most pieces and can easily be worn both day and night. During the day a blazer looks great thrown on over a casual t-shirt, jeans and flat shoes, but can easily be worn over your favourite dress for an evening out with friends.

4. Classic white shirt

It might seem like a boring piece and nothing to get too excited about, but you would be wrong. A classic white shirt is such a versatile piece to have in any wardrobe. Playing around with different fabrics can drastically change the look of an outfit. Try investing in silk and think about teaming it with tailored trousers for a twist on a classic office outfit. The more traditional crisp white shirt can be worn with a few buttons undone tucked into your favourite skirt for dinner out, just remember to not spill anything down yourself!

5. Comfortable flat shoes

It is important to have a beautiful but most importantly comfortable pair of flat shoes that you can turn to again and again. Although it’s tempting to buy cheaper shoes, so you have more pairs and in turn more choice, they simply won’t last, and you’ll be left frustrated. The best thing you can do is invest in a leather pair. A classic black loafer is always a safe bet to ensure your shoes can be paired with almost everything already in your wardrobe. There is nothing worse than investing in an expensive pair of shoes if you can only wear them occasionally.

  1. Yes, I completely agree and own all five!

  2. Apart from the black dress, which is gorgeous, this list is quite ideal for me, a guy as well. A good fitting pair of jean has a certain amount of feel good factor:)
    Quite interesting actually, a women tries on four pairs, compared to a guy, I wonder what the difference is:) me, one pair. hehe

  3. I am quite sure I have everything on this list in my wardrobe. I would actually add a checked shirt. They can be worn over a vest top like a jacket in summer or with layers in the winter and they go with pretty much everything and come in colours that suit everyone! I agree with jean shopping being horrific but like you say it is so worth it when you have that fave pair of jeans!

  4. Jeans are the most important clothing in my cupboard. I just feel they’re extremely comfortable and something that I can wear everyday.


  5. You're so right. I think as I get older I'm realising the value of having a few good pieces in my wardrobe that I can dress up or down, or mix and match, rather than just having everything.

  6. I've got all of these but I still manage to end up in my leggings every day. I do find I need a reason to dress up these days.

  7. Great list! the perfect pair of jeans is so important! When I discover the perfect pair I buy them in at least 3 colours just so I will always have them!

  8. I need to buy a new pair of jeans actually! My old favourites are a bit worn out now! Haha. But yes, I definitely agree with all these pieces. It's such a shame, but I really feel so uncomfortable in shirts or blazers.

  9. I love blazers and feel good dresses. I wear dresses 99% of the time so I have lots that make me feel good and confident.

  10. We all have that one pair of jeans that are a MUST. I have a pair that I've had since high school and I'll never get rid of them!
