In the fickle world of fashion, keeping with the 'in' and the 'now' can seem like a constant plight. Pieces that are right on the mark this season, soon becomes stale and dated by the next season. With fashion's ever-changing trends and adding an anemic bank balance into the equation, how on earth is a girl supposed to keep up with appearances?
Before you think this is turning into a pity party that will leave you mourning in your Manolos, help is at hand! It comes in the form of two words. Investment pieces.
Timeless, classic greats have the power to withstand vacillating runway looks. Investment pieces don't come with a style expiration date as they are perennial favourites, loved by all and cherished forever.
Now we all know about the LBDs, the quilted Chanels, and the diamond studs but Dolls, we're all about the New Classics. New, they may be, but we're convinced these beauties will stand the test of time and have your grandkids grappling for your closet.
The New LBDs
Why stick to black when you can exude timelessness with fail-safe neutrals in the form of a monochromatic print, blush and navy.
