So, you’ve got some cash to splash and you’re wondering what to spend it on.
Instead of going on a big shop, why not go for a single piece that will last you for life?
People often baulk at the idea of spending a lot of money on one big-ticket item, but sometimes you have to take a step back and say: what’s better value? The £500 coat you wore 400 times or the £20 blouse that never saw the light of day?
If you’re thinking about taking the plunge, here are a few recommendations.
Diamonds are a Pearls Best Friend
Jewellery was always going to be on this list. More specifically, let’s talk diamonds and pearls.
Diamonds are timeless and will never go out of style, and you don’t have to break the bank to find a long-lasting keepsake. F. Hinds offer a beautiful range of diamond bracelets and bangles, and why not team with a matching diamond necklace to complete the set?
Speaking of necklaces, have you considered pearls? Pearls have true elegance and class and a simple pearl pendant is a timeless look.
A Good Coat
A good coat can go a long way. But it needs to be a good coat.
If you find the right coat it really can last you for a very long time but there are a few basic guidelines to follow. Material needs to be high quality and durable. Style needs to be classic. Colour needs to be a safe staple.
You know your style best – there is a coat out there for you.
A designer handbag can keep its head above the water for many years. However, for a bag to be a long-term fixture, it does need to have some brand power.
We’re talking Hermès, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry and so on and so forth. A classic design in with a big brand behind it will never go out of style.
If you regularly wear a timepiece then a beautiful new watch could be a good investment.
You could opt for a Rolex, a Tag Heuer or a Longines variety, which tend to retain their value strongly, but a good watch doesn’t have to cost the earth.
A stylish watch with longevity is perhaps easier to find than a coat or a handbag, so definitely worth your consideration.
