The fashion investment pieces I’ve got my eye on this year

24th January, 2018

I’m on the hunt for a new black clutch

Every year I map out what I’m planning to add to my wardrobe in terms of investment pieces. These are the big ticket items that I know will have longevity in my wardrobe and will be used constantly so I’m willing to spend a little more on them. As they often require a little forward planning due to their cost I always like to check out my wardrobe to identify any gaps or what may need replacing so I know exactly what I need to add to my list. This year, I’ll be looking to add the following to my collection…


Statement earrings

I’m keeping my eye out for some great statement earrings as I think they can really make an outfit. I like the fact that they’re an easy accessory to add to a look and the range of designs available at the moment is incredible. I like to mix it up as far as jewellery brands go so I will always go to big shopping destinations like Net-a-Porter which have an extensive line-up and a great roster of small and big brands to choose from.

Quality jeans

I need a new pair of good jeans that I can dress up. I’m looking for one in a lighter denim, that’s high waisted and in a skinny leg style. Denim is always on high rotation in my wardrobe so I can justify spending a little more on jeans if I know it’s the kind of piece that I will wear constantly and that can be styled in various ways.

Statement heels


For me, the statement heel is the kind of thing that will always get a workout throughout the year. With the sheer number of functions I have to attend, a great pair of striking heels will always be value for money as I will wear them so often. My go-to brands are usually Gucci, Balenciaga, Gianvito Rossi, Aquazzura and Alaïa as they always have interesting designs that aren’t so run of the mill. I usually like to choose neutral colours but with bold finishes so it’s easy to work back with numerous outfits without compromising on wow factor.

Black clutch

I’m on the hunt for a new little black clutch. The Chanel one I’m carrying in the above shot has been with me for years and I’m after one in a similar size and in the same classic style. I love bags that can be used on multiple ways, so for example, I favour styles that have a strap allowing me to wear it as a crossbody bag but then if I tuck the strap in I can use it as a clutch. I definitely think you get more value for money that way.

Showstopper belt

I’ve had my eye on this belt for ages. Belts have had a bit of a resurgence as far as accessories go and I’ve been on the look out for one that I know will last more than a season. This belt by Gucci is perfect. It’s classic black, features the iconic interlocking Gs and the addition of pearl studs  elevates it into a true outfit centrepiece.
