Yes I totally agree. I think it’s important to invest in a few classic designer pieces that you’ll get at least ten years wear out of like a wool winter coat, leather knee high boots. Buy the winter pieces during the summer sales & vice versa. It’s also a good idea to buy these items in block colors like beige, black, white, navy etc as these will make them look more expensive. You can wear your beige coat with all the high street trends like animal print, stripes, check to update them each season.
