There are many things we do as adults that we didn’t do as children and vice versa. One of those things is to change the way we think about clothing. As children and young people, we’re all about having fun with fashion and don’t really care about how long our clothes last. As we get older, even if we’re still all about fun fashion, we want to invest in clothes and accessories that will last for years. After all, you ‘get what you pay for.’
When thinking about investment pieces, it’s crucial to ignore trends. If you want to use it for years, you don’t want it to look dated after a season or two. Stick to classic colours, shapes, and materials, and think of the construction and craftsmanship that has gone into the item.
Keeping it classic and high-quality is very important when buying accessories, especially if it’s one of the things below. Think carefully about these essential purchases, and you’ll never go out of fashion.
Watches are one of the only things (apart from a wedding ring, perhaps, or prescription glasses) that we wear every single day. They can take a beating, so it’s essential to have a timepiece that goes with every outfit and is robust enough to withstand daily wear. Like all accessories, choosing a watch is very personal, but there are classic elements that are guaranteed to last. Leather or metal straps, a round face, and gold numbers or numerals are all great choices. Try Richard Mille Watches.
If you’re someone who’s always losing sunglasses, you might not want to invest a huge amount of money, but you can still invest in a classic shape such as aviators or cat eyes. If you manage to keep hold of your sunglasses a little longer, spending extra money on them will make a huge difference. They’ll be sturdier and last longer. Stick to classic gold, silver, or black frames to stay on-trend no matter what’s on the catwalks.
Many people have several pairs of earrings, but if you’re looking for investment pieces, two types of earrings will never, ever go out of style – studs and hoops. For studs, choose a simple diamond or plain gold pair. Choose square or other non-round shapes for something a little edgier. While cheap gold hoops are a dime a dozen, buying a pair that will last a lifetime will, in the end, prove greater value for money.
Like watches, handbags are an accessory often used daily, and are subject to being put down, picked up, placed on floors, and even stood on. For these reasons, it’s easy to be tempted to stick to cheaper bags. If they’re going to get damaged, why spend the money? However, more expensive, better-constructed bags actually have a better chance of surviving much longer. Don’t forget to keep it classic.
