Investing In Your Wardrobe: Top Tips To Getting It Right
Every now and then we all make a purchase that even we can’t quite believe. But we had to have it. So why do we do this and what makes these purchases acceptable?! Here are our top 34STYLE tips as to why you should invest in your wardrobe if you want to, so you can sleep soundly at night knowing you’ve made the right decision!
First rule of thumb: Think of these purchases as investments, not just frivolous buys.
When it comes to buying fashion, more often than not, we’re lured into the dazzling lights of high street shops and the items we purchase are just simply not investment pieces, they’re trend based and set us back anything from £20 – £200.
Yes, they look great and have a few good outings. You may even get a few years wear out of them if you’re lucky, but the difference with investment pieces is that for the most part, they don’t necessarily fade in and out with seasonal trends. They have the potential with the right care, to last a life time.
We find, thinking of these pieces like great partners in life really helps! 34STYLE was created on the premise that you only need three to four investment pieces to look and feel amazing, whilst also saving time on thinking about what to throw on and also saving money because the pieces will take you from day to night and stand the test of time. Bonus! With that, here are our three tips of what you need to ask yourself when making any investment decision:
Will I genuinely use it?
If you’re not sure if it really suits you, fits properly or waiting for that new hair cut or to lose weight until to take it on its debut outing, then don’t buy it. Here’s where you need to be practical and also truly both LOVE it and need it in your capsule wardrobe.
Will it stand the test of time?
Can you really see yourself wearing it in ten year’s time or saving it as a hand-me-down so as to not really let it leave the family? If the answer is yes to either of these, it sounds like you’re onto a winner!
Is it of the highest quality?
When making a big purchase, there is simply no point unless you know the quality of the fabric and can see the detail in the stitching to know it will be seriously durable and last you a lifetime. If it is of the highest quality then you can be rest assured the piece will be worth much more than the price tag after a few years.
