3 Style Investments for every Woman + Man

FASHION PASSES. STYLE REMAINS.

I am so exited to welcome, Kyle Duncan, as my contributing author on this post. We both believe that certain pieces of your wardrobe should be key investments that are a part of your personal style. I will grace you with investments from the perspective of a lady, and then Kyle will take it away with style investments for all the swanky gentlemen.

Find YOUR style. Not trend, not “fast fashion”…find your style, and invest. Here are my three key pieces of investments that define my style and hopefully inspire you to invest in your style, rather than fashion. Remember, it’s quality, not quantity, people.

1. Pearl Earrings

Classy. Fabulous. Style.

Pearls are a definite part of my style. I wear pearl earrings literally everyday. They are simple, classy as can be, and I just wouldn’t be me without these pearls. AKOYA CULTURED PEARL EARRINGS IN 14K YELLOW GOLD, 6-6.5MM from Helzberg Diamonds are the pearls I wear everyday. CHECK THIS OUT. These pearls are normally $200 and they are on sale for $100. That’s bad for me because I already have them, but good for you if you’re in the market! (:

…and invest

My style is playful but serious when it comes to key style investments.

1. Loafers

The oldest silhouette in the shoe game

My pick is the Gucci snake loafers because the loafer is the oldest shoe silhouette in the shoe game. But the embroidered snake adds a current and fresh outlook while still remaining classic or timeless. To be Gucci, or no to be Gucci, a classic leather loafer is a key style investment for any man.

2. Backpack

KEY piece for the man on the go

Louis Vuitton is a name that carries style and taste. The Backpack in coated canvas has a roomy interior paired with the classic Louis Vuitton look. The flap, drawstring closing, and metal buckle make this the perfect backpack for the man on the go. Photo Creds: Louis Vuitton

3. Travel Bag

Carry-all. No fuss. TSA compliant. Made for the Modern Man.


The Metropolitan Duffel by Coach is a no-fuss carryall made for the modern man.
