You know that certain item in your closet where you think to yourself, “Wow, I look really good in this!” or “I should have bought two!” Those are the investment pieces that really transition you from season to season. For me it’s the jean jacket hanging in my closet that I’ve had since eighth grade (yes, I said eighth) or my favorite pair of ripped jeans that no matter the time of year I always seem to work into any outfit. It’s those season-less pieces that are really worth the money spent. For me building a stylish and functional wardrobe is all about give and take. Not all of us can afford YSL clutches or even JCrew jackets, but it’s taking the time to reevaluate what you use the most and focusing your budget on those items that will make the splurge well worth it. Here are some of my top picks that will carry you from season to season and add an effortless element of style in your wardrobe. ..
