The Smart Investment Pieces To Buy & Wear Forever

After spending the past year in quarantine, I can’t think of a better time to invest in new pieces for your closet than now. We have a fresh season and month ahead of us, which sets the tone for a wardrobe upgrade. I love how a new It-bag or high-quality basics always make an outfit look more put-together and expensive.

One of my go-to spots for luxe, designer pieces has always been Saks Fifth Avenue. They never fail to have a well-edited assortment of brands and collections, so you can be sure what you’re purchasing is a smart buy. Not only that but they run great events from time to time, allowing you to score huge savings on great pieces. I’m so excited to share that one of those events is happening right now. Today through April 3, you can earn a Saks Gift Card up to $700 (including beauty – some exclusions apply). You just have to add the promo code “MAR21SF” during checkout. I’ve linked the full details of the sale below:

Spend $250, get a $35 gift card
Spend $500, get a $75 gift card
Spend $1,000, get a $150 gift card
Spend $2000, get a $450 gift card
Spend $3000+, get $700 gift card

Saks also has really amazing customer service as well as a flexible return policy, which is super important to me when purchasing high-ticket items. I find myself shopping for many of the investment pieces in my wardrobe here, especially when I can get a gift card to use on future wish list items or beauty purchases. Keep scrolling for my curated picks worth investing in this spring.

Outerwear & Blazers

I’m all for investment outerwear from timeless trench coats to structured blazers. They always add the ultimate luxe factor on top of any outfit. Straight from my wardrobe, I have to say that a Balmain blazer and Burberry trench are two of the best investments you can make. Another high-quality brand of blazers that I love (and that’s a better price point) is L’Agence. This tailored blazer that I’m wearing here is by L’Agence and it’s timeless. A blazer and a trench are wearable in the spring and fall – and because they’re such great quality, you can keep them in your wardrobe for years to come.

Since most of my warm weather outfits tend to be more casual, I’m an advocate of purchasing high-quality denim that won’t fade or stretch within a few wears. Distressed styles can easily go wrong, so I’ll typically spend on a little more on them. This pair by Moussy has been my latest obsession. The vintage wash is perfect along with the non-skinny fit and shredded details.

For spring, I always feel inspired by a stunning, resort-style dress. Even though I just got back from Miami, I’m always looking for my next piece. A statement option with intricate details is always a showstopper – and every girl needs at least one in her spring wardrobe.

You guys already know that bags and shoes are where I invest most in my wardrobe. This Stella McCartney bag is a modern and versatile bag that’s perfect for spring. It can be worn crossbody or as a shoulder bag. I always take advantage of the Saks event like this one to score a new designer bag. The best styles always sell fast though, so don’t wait to grab your favorite!

I’ve had these Alexandre Birman heels in my wardrobe forever. I started with the black ones and knew I’d eventually buy into the white and nude pairs. I just love how chic and feminine they look with denim and dresses. They’re a definite must-have in my book. I’m also crushing on these jeweled pumps from Manolo Blahnik – and was stoked to see that they’re included in this event.

Besides shoes and bags, one of the pieces I’ve been getting a ton of questions about are my favorite hats! So many of the ones I love and wear can be purchased at Saks right now. My go-to brands for fedoras and straw hats are Rag & Bone, Lack of Color and Eugenia Kim.
