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!
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
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.
