When I say 'invest', I mean finding great pieces and still working with a budget. Usually when you hear the term 'investment piece,' it's designer, which I do love.

But the reality for most of us twenty (& thirty)-somethings is not designer. (unless it's thrifted, which I'm getting back into & might do a post on eventually) But for now, we're talking good budget pieces.

Call this an updated version of last year's style staples post? Maybe?


Wardrobe Pieces to Invest In: The BlazerWardrobe Pieces to Invest In: The Blazer
A good, fitted blazer is key to taking an outfit from okay to business chic in a pinch. I love things like a pinstripe detail on the cuffs for an added oomph! 

PRO TIP: Wanna turn a graphic tee into work ready? Throw on a blazer. BAM.

The thing about little back dresses is there are about a thousand you can choose from. Right now, my pick is a black t shirt dress that can be worn super casual or super dressed up. (especially in autumn, can I get a boots & scarf hey oh)

Another versatile piece, this one is a wardrobe must have. A textured button down is a modern take on the white oxford that I'm loving! If invested in, this piece can be worn for ages. Timeless, no?

Cardigans are always one of the top ten wardrobe essentials, in my opinion. Investing in at least two neutral cardis will change the way you look at your wardrobe. Seriously. Sounds dramatic, but the amount you can do with a simple layering piece is crazy! Throw it on top of a simple dress, tank, or even with a denim top. 

Wardrobe Pieces to Invest In: Designer Bag

This is the only INVESTMENT investment piece on the list, as I believe every girl should own at least one designer bag in her lifetime. The key to this one is research: first decide which designer you want, then from there research the best bags from that designer, & the marketplaces to get the best bang for your buck.
& THERE IT IS, all my essentials to invest in (on a budget, of course) 

What are the pieces worth investing in to you?
