When youâ€™re young, it often feels like you canâ€™t splurge on everything, or nearly anything for that matter. That being said, there are a few great pieces that are worth spending a few extra bucks on. Timbercreek Communities has a few suggestions for the top investment pieces to buy in your 20â€™s.
Neutral Wool Coat
A neutral wool coat is an essential wardrobe staple that everyone should invest in. Itâ€™s classic, stylish and goes well with just about any outfit. Stick with colours like black, grey, navy or camel since they match with pretty much everything. You can also choose a style thatâ€™s form-fitting or oversized. If you plan on layering underneath, you might want to choose an oversized coat which will be more comfortable with all those extra pieces. Itâ€™s a wise investment because a wool coat will keep you warm and chic!
Professional Bag For Work
When it comes to a professional work bag, thereâ€™s a few things to consider. First of all, it should be practical. It should have enough space for everything you need without looking completely stuffed. A simple tote is often the best way to go. Second of all, look for a bag that has different compartments and a few extra pockets. This will come in very handy when you want to separate your laptop from your gym clothes. Ideally, the perfect work bag is versatile and can be worn in multiple ways -- as a tote, over-the-shoulder, etc. And if you can get your hands on a water-resistant bag, even better!
A rainy day trench coat
Invest in a good trench coat thatâ€™s useful and attractive. It will come in handy often --Â especially on rainy days. Is there anything worse than being stuck somewhere in a wet coat without an umbrella? Probably not. The next time you get caught in the rain, youâ€™ll be glad you chose to spend a few extra dollars on a trench coat thatâ€™s waterproof. Look for coats that fit well, are flattering, and ideally for something that has a hood. J.Crew and LolĂ« have some great, stylish and functional options. You also want the coat to be warm, so a fleece-lined coat might be a good option. This raincoat from Markâ€™s is another good choice. Not only does it look cute and feminine with the string around the waist, but it will keep you dry and looking chic as well.
A timeless watch
Whether youâ€™re male or female, a timeless watch is the perfect accessory. Itâ€™s worth paying a little more for a quality watch to get something that you absolutely love. Not only will you use it to tell time, but a watch makes a great fashion accessory. If you pick something neutral you can wear it with anything. For a minimal and classic design, Cluse or Fossil watches are perfect and they carry pieces for men and women.
An Understated Heel for Black-Tie events
Whether youâ€™re going to a wedding or a work event, having a classic pair of understated heals in your closet is crucial. Youâ€™ll be glad to have a pair on hand -- especially when a last-minute event comes up. A kitten heel is a great option if you really donâ€™t like anything high, plus they are comfortable enough for a casual outing or a fancy wedding. A sandal heel is another alternative. Think of them as a slightly dressier version of a regular sandal with a bit of a heel. They are also perfect for dressing up any outfit, like a t-shirt and jeans or a summer dress.
