Find out the secret to filling your wardrobe with accessories that will benefit you for years.

One lesson that we’ve learnt in adulthood is the art of accessorising. Something we’ve all got wrong many times as a youth, because, unfortunately, those oversized faux pearls and giant flower headbands didn’t do much for an outfit – shockingly. The secret to accessorising lies in buying statement, timeless pieces that will sit in your wardrobe for years to come.

This is about quality over quantity, and investing in items that will live beyond trends and become a classic. Ask yourself: will I wear this in 25 years’ time? If the answer is yes, it’s worth buying and spending that extra money for the craftsmanship and design.

Here are five reasons why it’s worth investing in your accessories…

They complete an outfit

Your accessories can either make or break an outfit and investing in luxury, well-made bags, jewellery and watches can take your look to the next level. Invest in the finest materials and luxury design that can make even the simplest of jeans and tee shirts look chic and stylish. Add a beautiful designer watch to your plain white shirt and jeans and you have yourself pure, understated elegance.

It’s shopping sustainably

Our shopping habits have a huge impact on the environment, and with the current concerns of climate change, it’s time to make a change. You may not think your clothing hauls have any correlation with freak weather, but it’s time to look at the bigger impact fast fashion has on our planet. By investing in key accessories that will last for years, you’re already helping to create a more sustainable wardrobe. Instead of buying throwaway, cheap accessories, invest in classics. They’ll serve both your style and the earth, it’s a win-win.

You can hand them down

View your accessories not only as clothing but as heirlooms that you can one day hand down to your children and your grandchildren. Just imagine how thankful your daughter will be when she can raid the collection of vintage designer bags or when your son is gifted one of dad’s Rolex watches. These are fabulous gifts to pass down the generations, along with all the stories that they may hold!

They will endure the trends

Fashion fades, style doesn’t! When investing in luxury accessories, steer away from the trend-led pieces, and instead, invest your hard-earned cash in the classics that have been loved, and will be loved, for many more years to come.

You deserve it

We all deserve a treat in life, otherwise, what’s the point? Whether you’re celebrating a big birthday, the festive season, or job promotion, self-gifting should never be something you feel guilty over. Not only will it make you feel great, it can give you the motivation to reach your goals and succeed.
