5 fashion investments every woman should splurge on

It's okay to spend money on these things

When you start inching closer to your thirties, your style begins to change and you find yourself dropping the short dresses for more sophisticated and lady-like outfits. At this point, you also start mingling with important people, going for meetings since you're more focused on your career and going on dates to meet your potential future bae. It's important to have a few luxury items that you can mix with lower end basics. For the majority of us, we do not own any item worth over 10,000 sh in our wardrobes and that's fine. But as a fashion-forward lady, you need to make a few fashion investments. Not only will they go a long way, but also level up your style.

Here are fashion investments you need to make:

One that you can wear to different occasions, be it when sealing a deal, or an upscale event. The beauty of a tailored suit is not only will you look like a badass boss babe but you will also have a blazer and pants which you can style as separates every now and then. While you can always buy a ready-made suit, the best option is to have one tailor made for you so that you choose the right fabric and the measurements are perfect.

2. A good handbag.

If you were to meet Michelle Obama today for a cup of tea, what handbag would you carry? Yeah if you have none, it's time you made that investment. You could get a designer handbag such as an original Michael Kors which will not only make you look sophisticated but also add flair to your look.

At the end of the day, this is not going to be your everyday bag, but a once in a while kind of bag for when you need to steal the show.

3. Statement Jewelry.

Think of something completely outstanding such as a Swarovski earrings or a beaded body accessory that you can wear to an occasion. Spend money on it and take care of it. Trust me when I say that sometimes, to make an ensemble look complete, all you need is that statement jewelry.

4. The perfect pair of jeans.

No acid wash, no patchwork, no distressing, no unfinished hems, just a nice perfect pair of plain colored denims. The kind that you don't have to yank up when you bend. Always remember to do the squat test before buying the jeans so that you get one that fits perfectly.

5. Sophisticated shoes.

We all need a pair of designer shoes or even just a sophisticated heel or pump. The beauty of designer shoes is that they're really good quality and will go a long way if you take good care of them. After all, they're not your everyday shoes but a pair that you will grab when you feel the need to steal the show, so go ahead and splurge on that Zanotti heel.
