If you visit this site on regular basis, you probably already know that in my book, accessories make an outfit. Unlike anything else, the right accessory has the power to transform a look and take any outfit to the next level. Though there are always many statement making accessories to choose from, when it comes to investment pieces, longevity and wearability is what I look for. Basically, before buying I always ask myself: will this piece be on constant rotation, can I wear this in a multitude of ways and will it stand the test of time? If the answer to all 3 is yes, I know that the item is worth the splurge!
This post happens to feature two of my must-haves this season – Dior book tote and a pair of Chanel combat boots.
Love this tote because it is such a graphic piece which means that it has that wow factor that tends to elevate your everyday basics. But the reason why I haven’t been able to part with it since I got it is because is pairs equally well with casual and dressy items alike. Beautiful with casual separates and sneakers, it works just as well paired with midi dresses or skirts and boots. Another reason is – comfort! Great for everyday, travel and for the beach, it’s fits all of my necessities and more. Love that!
Combat boots are everywhere this season! The one shoe style you definitely need in your closet, what makes them particularly relevant this year is the fact that they are worn with everything: dressy and casual, jeans and lacy dresses, denim cut-offs, patent minis, tailored suits and anything else you can think of! Love this pair because it definitely has that combat boot look, yet there is a certain elegance about them which tends to work so well with the dressier pieces. The other day, I paired them with an ankle-length white lace dress and a simple top handle bag and they definitely added a perfect touch of edge to an otherwise very feminine look.
What about you guys, what are you splurging on this season?
