We’re all aware of the negativity surrounding fast fashion. But not only is it bad for the environment, but it’s also bad for our wallet. With tonnes of clothing being thrown away each year due to items being of poor quality or them simply falling out of fashion, it’s no wonder that we’re looking at a clothing crisis.
Deciding to spend a little more money on high-quality essential wardrobe items is a much better solution. It’ll keep you looking stylish for years to come and help you save money in the long term. Want to know more? Here we’ll look at 5 fashion items that will stand the test of time and that are certainly worth the investment.
A good pair of boots
A good pair of boots will take you from Autumn, through the Winter months and right then right into Spring. Investing in a good pair of ankle or over the knee boots means you’ll also have countless ways to style them with other items that reflect the season. Think jumper dresses and ankle boots in Autumn or your favourite pair of jeans teamed with a pair of over the knee boots in Winter – effortless, chic!
A fitted blazer
This little gem can take you from desk to drinks in a heartbeat. They also look great with a white t-shirt, jeans and a pair of sneakers. Blazers never go out of style, but don’t be tempted by something cheap, if you want to get your money’s worth (and you’ll certainly wear it more than once) invest in one made of high-quality fabric.
From work to weekends, a well-fitted midi-skirt looks great with everything from cropped tees, to blouses and formal shirts. Again, footwear is flexible so your boots, flats, sandals or sneakers will look great too.
A pair of high waisted skinny jeans
Jeans are a staple in any wardrobe; however, a pair of high waisted skinny jeans look good on anyone. Not only will they smooth your silhouette, but if they fit correctly then they’re incredibly comfortable, making them the perfect choice for nights out with the girls or afternoons in the park with the kids. Try to find a pair that won’t fade or lose their shape after washing.
A jersey t-shirt style dress
The ultimate in comfort and style, a jersey t-shirt dress is a perfect balance between comfort and effortless style. From flats to heels, these timeless pieces work with anything and come in a variety of styles, patterns and colours.
