High-end fashion doesn’t have to be for Park Avenue princesses or high-profile celebrities. Even having a few key pieces can elevate your closet without breaking the bank. This fall is all about luxe living and investing in one or two items that will keep your wardrobe working hard year after year. Check out our top picks that will never go out of style and keep you looking sophisticated each season.
Some Classic Cashmere
Cashmere is a fabric that feels and looks ultra-high-end but doesn’t have to cost the earth. It will last a long time so long as you look after it correctly and keep it away from any dust or moths. Opt for a gorgeous scarf in neutral colors for the colder months or a stunning cashmere set for two hardworking wardrobe items that you can mix and match into other outfits.
A Logo Brand Belt
Accessories are a great way to splash a little cash without needing to re-mortgage your home. a high-quality logo branded belt will keep you looking lavish and can be worn multiple times, so you don’t have to worry about the double-outfit dread. Designers such as Gucci, Fendi, and Dior all do awesome leather belts that will stay in style forever and can be worn to the office, for a weekend brunch, or just simply running errands in jeans.
A Well-Fitting Trench Coat
Trenches are timeless and you can wear them in most weathers (except the burning heat). You don’t need to buy designer, just ensure yours fits you well, can be belted up, and is good quality so it will last you season after season.
The Perfect Denim Jeans
Jeans are a staple in any closet, but can be thrown of day in and day out in the winter to keep warm. You can pair with almost anything and they’ll work but add a pair of black biker boots and an oversized neutral knit and you’ll nail the cool-girl aesthetic taking over Instagram this winter. Make sure they fit you perfectly by buying the best fitting pair you can find and then taking them to a tailor to have them suited just to you.
Black, beige, or brown, any neutral color will work, just ensure they’re nice and chunky. The biker boot trend has been back with a bang the last couple of years and it is set to stay so invest in a pair that are good quality so they can withstand the rain and cold winters. Pick a leather or vegan leather pair rather than fabrics like canvas or suede as they will be easy to clean and can be tidied but with some show polish. More delicate fabrics won’t last more than one season so you’ll need to repurchase quicker.
A Thick Scarf
Not everyone’s budget stretches to Hermes but you can buy some gorgeous high-quality scarves from high street stores that will see you through plenty of seasons. Look for mostly wool, cashmere, and cotton blends, and stay away from cheaper polyester versions that will be scratchy and can get holes quickly.
