How To Choose Investment Pieces Wisely

In the shopping/style world, there is a lot of talk about “investment pieces.” My definition of an “investment piece” is an article of clothing or an accessory that you spend a decent chunk of change on, but it’s something that will work in your wardrobe for a very long time. An excellent example of this is a classic Chanel bag. That bag might set you back a few thousand dollars, but it will never go out of style, and you can even pass it down to your kids, or you can consign it and make some of your money back.

A Chanel bag, Christian Louboutin pumps, a Burberry trench coat – those are old standbys that we’ve all heard about a thousand times. But what do you invest in when your budget doesn’t allow that level of spending? Which brings us to today’s fashion question:

Hey, Lauren!

I was wondering if you could do a video on your YouTube channel about the best investment pieces! Like most people in their early 20’s, I am balling on a budget, and I’m noticing a lot of wear on my cheaper, fast-fashion pieces that are very recent purchases. What would you say are the best pieces to invest a little more money into?



Excellent question, if you are balling on a budget I recommend investing in pieces that you will wear for a very long time and don’t necessarily need top name brands to be considered an investment.

Here are my top choices and be sure to watch today’s video to learn even more!
