6 Classic Designer Items Worth the Splurge
Unless you’re rolling in dough, deciding which designer pieces to invest in can be a challenging task. Some may look so trendy that you can’t picture yourself wearing them for years to come, while others you just can’t justify spending a months salary on. So which items are actually worth the splurge? Read on to find out our top 6 picks below.
- CHANEL WALLET ON A CHAIN
A Chanel wallet on a chain is a great investment piece for many reasons. You can wear it multiple ways, it’s much roomier than it looks, and because it’s Chanel, you know you’ll use it forever. And for $2,725, it’s $3,825 cheaper than the classic quilted Chanel bag – aka a steal (well not really, but you know what we mean).
Buy it: Chanel Wallet on a Chain (Lambskin & Silver-Tone Metal), $2,725, at Chanel
- CHANEL EARRINGS
Another Chanel item that’s definitely worth investing in is their earrings. The earrings in their costume jewellery collection look much more expensive than they actually are, and wear just as well with a pair of jeans as they do an LBD.
Buy it: Chanel Metal, Glass Pearls & Glass Earrings, $870, at Chanel
- BURBERRY TRENCH COAT
A Burberry trench coat is probably one of the most timeless investment purchases you can make. This type of coat has been in style forever, and that does not appear to be changing any time soon. Also, if you live in a climate that has cold and rainy seasons, you’re guaranteed to get a ton of use out of it year after year.
Buy it: Burberry Kensington Heritage Trench Coat, $2,550, at Burberry
- CARTIER LOVE BRACELET
The Cartier love bracelet may have only become mainstream in recent years (thanks in part to Kylie Jenner who’s a huge fan), however, it’s actually been around since 1969. Famous for the unique way it’s put on (you have to lock it up with a mini screwdriver), this is a bracelet you can wear for the rest of your life – literally.
Buy it: Cartier Love Bracelet (Yellow Gold), $7,950, at Cartier
- GUCCI LOAFERS
Yes they cost a pretty penny, but a pair of Gucci loafers is a buy you’ll never regret. Whether you splurge on a pair of the backless mules or the classic closed-heel style, your feet will be so comfy (and look so good) you’ll never want to take them off.
Buy it: Gucci Princetown Embroidered Leather Slippers, $975, at Gucci
- TOM FORD SUNGLASSES
Every girl needs a pair of classic black, Jackie-O style sunnies her collection. We love how these Tom Ford ones have a timeless look, but with a modern twist.
Buy it: Tom Ford Alistair 56mm Gradient Sunglasses, $567.12, at Nordstrom
