Trends will always come and go, but there are certain items that you will be able to use season after season, year after year. OROGOLD brings you the timeless fashion buys that every woman should invest in.
A Pair of Chanel Cap Toe Flats
The iconic Chanel cap toe flats need no introduction, as they have taken the world by storm, spawning many lookalikes from other brands. These classic flats can be worn with almost any outfit, be it a casual look, with shorts or jeans, or a more elegant look paired with a dress. Not only do they come in a variety of colors, but many styles also feature an adjustable leather tie, that alters how snugly the flats fit around your feet.
An Hermès Bag
An Hermès bag, a Birkin or a Kelly bag in particular, is the ultimate status symbol, and is sought after by women all over the world. Each bag is handmade in the finest leather, and sells for anywhere between $9000 to $150,000, depending on the exact materials used. Although there are usually long waiting lists to endure before you can purchase one of the bags, the wait is worth it as you will then own an investment piece that will last you a lifetime. Once your bag starts to show signs of wear and tear, you can take it in for a Birkin spa treatment, where it will be refurbished and will look as good as new.
Classic Louboutin Pumps
Over the last two decades, Christian Louboutin’s trademarked red soles have become iconic when it comes to classy and stylish shoes. Louboutin pumps come in all shapes and colors, with many styles adorned with crystals or spikes, but a classic pair, such as the Pigalle or So Kate styles, are what OROGOLD believes to be a truly timeless pair of shoes. The shape and cut of each shoe accentuates the leg and urges women to stand up straight, improving their posture, and the splash of red underneath is a confidence booster to anyone who wears them.
Coco Chanel launched her first line of costume jewelery in 1924, and it was a huge success, being described by Harper’s Bazaar as ‘one of the most revolutionary designs of our time’. The beauty of pearls transcends age and culture, and can be worn in so many ways, whether you are heading to work in the middle of London or dining out on sushi in downtown Tokyo. Pearls are also extremely versatile, and look great either worn on their own, layered with other pieces of jewelery, or worn tighter like a cuff or a chunky choker. Many styles of Chanel peals are often interspersed with glass or crystal beads, adding texture, interest and a modern yet timeless quality.
Investing in timeless pieces is always worth it, as it is something that you will love all through your life, whether you’re in your 20s or your 60s. Although you may end up spending more than you usually would, don’t forget that the items will be of the highest quality and made with the finest materials, and will give you a huge boost of style and confidence no matter what you wear them with.
