The fascinating world of fashion, however creative and design oriented it is, is chasing after the same thing as any other business in the world – our cash.
So how do we know when is the right time to part with our hard earned cash and when is the time to keep it stashed safely under the mattress?
Here is SWK guide to for good and bad fashion investments:
Lets start with the most coveted item – status bag. An item that is most sought after and unless it is inherited, will probably cost you the most out of everything’s on the list.
Every girls needs a status bag. That is a fact. It is not a matter of life and death, more a matter of “life or a better life”. The degree to which your life will be better depends not on the price tag of the bag but on how well you can flaunt it. So choose a bag that is your one true love, and don’t just go for the one with most zeros at the end of a number. Nothing will boost your confidence and give your look everyones approval and admiration more than that treasured status bag.
And if the love is gone change the bag!! Nothing is forever.
Black leather or suede pumps
As basic as this item sounds, it does not mean that that you should not care much about it. Cheaper shoes are likely to give you blisters, feel terrible and not last. So spending a little extra on your black suede or leather pumps will definitely pay off in the long run. It is likely to be your go-to pair and it would be wise to make sure it is comfortable. So try on several pair and do not buy it unless your feet love it.
Dark blue jeans
OK if you are feeling nervous about your savings after reading about the status bag, here is some relief for you. This item shouldn’t cost you much, is easily found and easily replaced. But there is a “but” here too. Your dark blue jeans must be a perfect fit for your figure. Period. No exceptions. Try on as many pairs as you need until you get the one that feels like it was tailor made for your figure. When it comes to dark blue jeans compromise is not an option.
For those of us who spend a good deal of time in cold climate a camel wool coat is item number one on the list. A true style staple, seen on every autumn winter catwalk, the camel coat is as versatile as a 3D printer. Not only does it look good on absolutely everyone and matches to all kinds of clothes without exception, it works for spring, autumn and even winter seasons. Just change whatever is underneath to fit the weather. Priceless.
Oh yes, the infamous LBD. This item definitely deserves extra attention because LBD doesn’t mean just any dress that is little and black, and I can’t stress this enough, it means only the type that suits your figure. It is a very simple item (most of the time) and that is why there is no room for imperfections. Simple has to equal perfect and thats is it. Same as with your dark denim jeans.
A classic black suit should be a permanent resident in every woman’s wardrobe. I’m sure there is no need to comment on its role in office wear, but its role in evening wear requires more detail. A suit is a great alternative to an LBD or any other dress or gown you might want to wear to an important event. Without anything underneath it is nothing short of a stunner. And a great way to stand out from the crowd, even when we are talking about a red carpet event. Timeless, sexy and very powerful.
