5 Timeless Items To Splurge On

fashion investment pieces
Stop: Hold the press! A piece on The Daily Luxe that is not about bargains?! Ladies: You all know I am addicted to bargains and this ain't gonna change! (Just try and hold me back from those sales! I dare you!). But as I get further and further into my twenties, the more I understand the importance of investing in quality and timeless pieces. After all, we need to treat ourselves sometimes.

Speaking of treats, the other half and I had a stupid  totally valid argument the other day about whether buying a Chanel handbag is an investment:

Him- 'It's not a diamond ring, which will go up in value.'

Me- 'But it's a Chanel bag. They are timeless; I can pass it on to my daughters and granddaughters and it will go up in price because it will eventually acquire a vintage status.'

Ah babe... you will never understand fashion.

Unlike my boyfriend, the crew at Hiphunters have their hand firmly on the fashion pulse. Thanks to this a premium and luxury shopping platform, finding those investment pieces is now easier than ever!

Let's take a look at five timeless designer items that are totally worth the splurge...

1. Louboutin Black Pumps

The slightest flicker of that red sole is enough to drive any fashionista into a lust-filled frenzy! For a pair that will transcend any trends, opt for a plain leather pair with a round toe. As beautiful, and on-trend, as patent and pointed toe Louboutin's are, these babies will never go out of fashion.

2. The Classic White Shirt

White tops in various shapes will come and go, but a classic white shirt is forever. Just be careful with the red wine and this basic piece could last you a lifetime. It's just like a husband, with less whining!

 
If you're looking for quality without breaking the bank, 'The Queen' shirt by up-and-coming designer 'I'm Your Shirt' is a great buy.

If you're after an investment piece, this Mason Margiela piece is the one for you!


3. Burberry Trench Coat

This British icon was born in the trenches (get it!) of World War One and has gone on to be a timeless style statement. Weatherproof and style-proof, it's safe to say that this piece of outerwear is worth investing in!

4. Chanel 2.55 Bag

5. The Little Black Dress

Ah... the little black dress! Where to start? Hiphunters have a plethora of beauties here to suit every shape and size. Perhaps the hardest thing about this classic is choosing one that will transcend fashion trends. Opt for a classic, A-line shape and a knee-length hem and you can't go wrong.

  27. Louboutins have been my dream shoes for years! I can remember being obsessed with them at 12 years old haha

    ReplyDelete
  28. Honestly, Louboutins are so uncomfortable and impossible to walk in that I would never splurge on them. If I'd ever get some as a present, that's cool, but I'd never cash out myself :) They are absolutely beautiful, but the fact that you can barely walk on them is such a no no for me!

    Fashionably,

  45. Couldn't agree with you more on these items to splurge on! Although I think I have about 5 different black pumps in my closet that are pretty identical LOL. Definitely getting into those investment pieces I have realized also as I've gotten older and how much of a difference they really make to your wardrobe. Great post Rachel!

  47. One can never go wrong with a pair of Louboutin heels, Chanel bags never go out of style, White shirts are the simplest but the best trend fashion has ever had and the LBD is simply an everlasting trend and who wouldn't love a Burberry trench coat??

  64. Such a great post, Rachel, and I definitely take your side on this discussion :) Tell him that a Chanel bag is like a Lamborghini Aventador and he'll totally get it! I only know about cars because my husband is in the business, it comes with the territory and every dinner discussion, lol! Back to your suggestions! You are so spot on with your list here. Each item is practical for every day wear, completely justifying a splurge on them. It makes more financial sense to purchase something that may be pricer than your average, but when you do the math, it makes more sense, if you're going to have to keep replacing the pieces because the price is affordable, but the quality is horrible. Again, great post, beauty, and thanks so much for sharing; have a wonderful week ahead!
