I have been posting recently about my desire to have fewer, better items in my closet. My clothing search has veered away from fast fashion and has moved towards hardworking staple items that I know will live in my wardrobe for years to come. Shopbop is where I find a ton of my investment pieces from designers I know and love. I wanted to share three categories I will be shopping for and items that are great investments and additions to your long term wardrobe!
I am a firm believer that you should invest in pieces that you will wear all the time. There is just something different about the construction and material in a great pair of designer denim and this is why I choose to invest in my denim. This pair of Paige Hoxton jeans is ALWAYS packed in my suitcase when I travel and they are my go-to when I want to look and feel my best.
Check your schedule and see what you have coming up in terms of special occasions over the spring and summer. If you know that you will want a new outfit for any of these occasions, take this opportunity to snag a great deal. I know that my sister is getting married this fall, so I will be looking for a few items to wear to those events. I wore this Alice + Olivia dress to fashion week and received a ton of compliments.
Y'all I live for a good blazer. I mean pair it with black pants, jeans, a skirt, the list could go on FOREVER. Like I said before, it's important to invest in quality hardworking pieces that you will wear day in and day out. Since I travel for my job several times a month, I have to incorporate travel and work week style. One of my favorite travel style tips is to always pack with one anchor accessory color. In this case, I chose black. For a trip all of my shoes and accessories are the same color so that I know I can mix and match my looks.
