My personal approach to shopping is centered around the concept of building a wardrobe of items I can wear now but also far into the future. Instead of spending $100 on a fast-fashion piece that I’ll wear just once, I prefer to pool my dollars for bigger items that I can wear on repeat—not just for a season, but for years down the road.
That’s where the idea of investment pieces comes into play. I believe in quality over quantity and prefer to have a tight edit of clothes and accessories. Although the items may have a high price tag, they inevitably have a low cost per wear because they get so much mileage.
Curious to find out the investment pieces all the stylish fashion girls are buying right now, I reached out to find out what’s sitting in their closets and in their shopping carts. And their selects are sure to inspire some of your future purchases. From an iconic take on fall’s biggest boot trend and Phoebe Philo–era Celine to modern takes on heritage brands and the classic bag they’ll be mixing into their outfits for years to come, these are the pieces you’ll be seeing on our favorite fashion girls. Shop their picks ahead, and scroll to the end to see what’s on this editor’s list.
