8 Investment Pieces Every Lady Should Own

The key to achieving that classic, effortless style is to invest in good quality, versatile pieces. This ensures that you get the most wear out of your clothing.  I cannot explain how many things in my wardrobe I had to constantly change because I would rather spend my money on a cheaper item with lower quality. Here are a few pieces I believe every lady should invest in.  

1. Little Black Dress

This piece was introduced to the world by Coco Chanel in the 1920's, and has been a women's wardrobe staple ever since because it gives a woman a sense of effortless elegance. When choosing your little black dress, ensure that the design is versatile so that you can get the most out of it. You can do this by choosing conservative necklines such as a scoop or high neck because these designs are easy to transition from day to night. 

2. Nude and Black Patent Pumps

Once you have a black and nude heel, you can pretty much pair them with anything. From your hectic schedule at work straight to happy hour with your friends. It's best to ensure that you have good quality shoes; otherwise you will forever be replacing them. My personal choice would be a heel with a pointed toe; however the almond toe can also work. 

3. A Black Pants Suit

Everyone needs a black suit. You never know when you will need to go to a meeting, job interview, or any other professional setting. 
4. A Leather Jacket
Add a touch off edge to your ensemble with one of these. Whether you prefer black, brown, or another color; the choice is yours. As mentioned before, good quality always lasts longer.  

5. An Everyday Handbag
Finding the right handbag takes some research. What is it that you want in an everyday handbag? If you are used to carrying a lot of things with you every day, obviously you may want to choose a bigger handbag. The Berkin bag by Hermes would be a nice choice for you.  If you would prefer a smaller bag, Chanel's quilted chain purse would be perfect for you. It all depends on your personal style and what you require in a handbag. 

6. Jeans
Like a good man, a good pair of jeans is almost impossible to find. Whether you prefer skinny or boot cut, a dark wash goes with almost anything. I personally think that everyone should have at least one skinny jean and one boot cut to switch the style up every now and then.

7. White Buttoned Down Shirt
A white buttoned down shirt is perfect for those days when you are running late and have no time to put together an outfit. This makes your look seem effortless, yet put together. Pair with a black trouser, jeans, or skirt. The possibilities are limitless! This is why versatility is key.

8. Pencil Skirt

When styled the right way, this skirt can be appropriate for any occasion. It hugs your curves and is super sophisticated and sexy.  I think every lady should I least own a black pencil skirt like the one worn by Khloe Kardashian. (Far Right)

Are you unsure of where to find items like these? Stores like New York and Company, Nordstrom, and many others are filled with deals on good quality pieces. It will not be the same prices as Forever21 and H&M, but the prices are still fairly reasonable. You do not have to break your wallet to find good quality clothing.
