While we're all pinching pennies where we can and trying (as tempting as it may be) not to sink down the rabbit hole of online shopping, there are a few times where spending money on clothing isn't something to feel guilty about. Having staple items in your wardrobe which will transcend trends and form essential pieces that you can dress up or down for any occasion will be worth the investment. 

So while you're surfing through your favourite store and adding to your shopping cart you might want to invest in these pieces that will prove to be worth their weight in gold.
 

1. The Leather Jacket

Very few pieces work with any and everything in your closet and a leather jacket is one of those pieces. It's a true essential for any closet and will help recreate just about any look. Whether you want to tap into your inner rockstar and create outfits that are both edgy and chic, or just looking to own a piece that will really stand the test of time this is something every woman needs to own. For maximum mileage opt for one that's genuine leather.

2. Nude Heels

Now we all know that any time a woman wears heels she gets an instant confidence boost. They elongate your legs, make you stand tall as you tackle the day and always result in a polished finish. The nude variant is the ultimate investment however as the colour literally complements any shade and will not drown out your overall outfit. A pointy or even open toe style will really exude feminine finesse.
 

3. A White Shirt

The colour white should not be taken lightly as a shade that only symbolizes purity and ethereal qualities. It's sophisticated, classy, fresh and mature. A white shirt in any form will come in handy for days when the occasion calls for smart casual or even formal wear. You can never go wrong with having a variety of these pieces in your wardrobe. The starting point of this would be the simple button-down version and from there you can build by purchasing different styles such as a blouse, shirts with statement sleeves and collars and even wraps style shirts. The options for this one are endless and all worthwhile.

4. The Wrap Dress

What's great about a wrap dress is that it creates a silhouette that flatters any and every shape by cinching and highlighting your waist. It also has the dual effect of concealing an untoned stomach if the aim is to hide any unwanted "lumps and bumps".

The fact that it has stood the test of time when it comes to fashion and has become an item that keeps evolving through different ways of re-creating the actual wrap from oversized bow detailing to ruching and barely-there fastening proves that we all need this as part of our capsule collection.

5. Denim Denim Denim!!

We can't express enough how much you need this fabric in your wardrobe. Jeans are honestly like a second skin. It's a multitask fabric that looks great worn both on and off duty. Pegleg, high-waisted, mid-rise and skinny jeans should be your first fits to invest in depending on your shape and then you can allow yourself to expand from there. The different shades, washes and cuts cater to any mood you are going for and allow for an endless amount of outfit options. We could go on and on about how owning the right pair of jeans will change your life but we all can attest to the fact that once you find your perfect fit you will never want to step out of them again. 
 

6. The Blazer

Heading to a corporate gig, attending a formal affair or just wanting to spruce up a casual or sport-inspired look ( think biker shorts and blazer trend) well a blazer is just the item to achieve all that. Go the androgynous route by investing in an oversized version for a really fashion-forward meets classic feel. Be it a dress, jeans, fitted pants or even a cute pair of tailored shorts adding a blazing will automatically sharpen up any outfit.

7. Brogues And Loafers

Long gone are the days where you could only look smart in a pair of heels. Brogues and loafers are the clever girl's alternative to dressing up. These are the perfect substitute for heels on long days at the office where the aim is to look like a powerhouse, minus killing your feet. It's also been proven that wearing heels every day over a long period of time does real damage to your legs and feet in the long run so it's not a good idea. Nowadays brands have made it so easy to find fashionable pairs of brogues that still carry a feminine quality through different colourways and designs so if you all about being a girly girl you need not worry.

8. The Bag

A structured satchel bag is fashionable, safe, as it sits close to your body, and also convenient in size. Carrying huge totes is so outdated and bag trends have become more focused on a sleek aesthetic which is still spacious enough to fit the essential goods. We are no longer travelling with heavy add ons that are filled with clutter and unnecessary items so a satchel bag will prevent you from being that person. It's stylish enough for both the workspace and a day/night on the town. Ones in muted shades such as black, beige or grey will give you the most mileage.
