Over 40 fashion blogger wearing veronica beard blazer as one of 5 wardrobe investment pieces.

Happy September Ladies! It may still feel like summer outside but as far as I’m concerned fall has arrived and I am HERE for it! In my latest YouTube video 8 STYLE TIPS CLASSY WOMEN ALWAYS FOLLOW one of my top tips was to make a list of investment pieces I wanted to add to my wardrobe at the beginning of each season. I had so much great feedback I thought I should share a list of my top 5 investment pieces for the fall season! As always, I’ll be sharing a more affordable option where I can. So, if you’re looking to invest in some quality pieces that will last for years in your closet, keep scrolling! Whether you opt to splurge or go for the steal, I guarantee you’ll LOOK and FEEL like the best version of yourself!

INVESTMENT PIECE: VERONICA BEARD BLAZER

First on my list of 5 wardrobe investment pieces is a really good structured blazer. It’s common knowledge that Veronica Beard sets the benchmark for quality blazers, so it’s no surprise that the Balmain blazer is my most recommended investment piece. I’ve linked it in this gorgeous navy shade as an alternative to a classic black, but whatever shade you choose, I guarantee this will be your most reached for jacket in your closet. I’m wearing a SIZE 0 and it fits true to size.

BETTER FOR BUDGET:

If the designer blazer is out of budget, this one from Madewell is a great option! I’m wearing it in look #5 and with a price tag under $200 it’s a much more affordable option. It has the same double-breasted design and the material is not only wrinkle-free but also better for the planet since it’s recycled.

INVESTMENT PIECE #2: YSL HANDBAG

If you’ve been around for a hot minute then you know that this YSL bag is one of my most worn accessories! The croc-embossed leather gives a luxe vibe and if I’m going to display a designer label I will opt for my accessories or my shoes, so this is the perfect option. It’s definitely an investment but I’ve had mine for years so believe me when I say this bag will stand the test of time.

SHOP NOW

BETTER FOR BUDGET:

If you’re looking for a quality handbag without the designer price tag, look no further than this option from Kurt Geiger! It has the same croc-embossed leather and luxe gold hardware, making it a fantastic dupe for the YSL handbag. Splurge or steal, I guarantee you’ll be thrilled with either of these choices!

INVESTMENT PIECE #3: TRENCH COAT

Next on my list of 5 wardrobe investment pieces is a fabulous trench coat. Whether were talking about full-length or an updated cropped version, a trench coat is a must-have staple in any wardrobe. I recently found this one at Revolve and I immediately knew it was coming home with me. It’s the best of both worlds with classic trench elements combined with an updated hemline and the price point that’s just over $100 is amazing! I’m wearing an XS and find it fits true to size.

INVESTMENT PIECE #4: YSL CHAIN NECKLACE

Next on my list of 5 wardrobe investment pieces is another piece I literally wear on repeat! I consider this YSL necklace one of my “signature” pieces which means it’s something that I can wear with almost any look and it pulls my whole look together. The fact that it’s two-toned gold allows for endless complimentary combinations and it’s bold enough to easily catch the eye. These are just a few reasons why this is probably my favorite investment piece in my entire wardrobe!

SHOP NOW

BETTER FOR BUDGET:

While my YSL necklace is absolutely stunning, it’s also a significant investment. If you want the look for less, I recommend considering this beautiful option from SHYMI. It features the same two-toned gold shades and choker style but with a price tag of around $150 instead of $1150! The most notable difference would probably be the thickness of the chain, but beyond that, it’s a fantastic affordable alternative.

INVESTMENT PIECE #5: KNEE-HIGH BOOTS

Last but not least on my list of wardrobe investment pieces is a fabulous pair of knee-high boots! I would normally consider this pair from Vince Camuto an investment piece but they are currently on sale for under $150 making them quite a bit more budget-friendly. I adore the slouch effect around the calf and the pointed toe combined with the stiletto heel will make your legs look miles long! If you’re fall wardrobe is lacking a fabulous pair of boots, this is your sign to snatch this pair up at a great price point.
