Think you have to spend a fortune every year to look chic? Think again. Our top five wardrobe investments will work for you season after season.

Luxe leather
A fitted leather jacket has biker-chick sex appeal, but it also adds edge to a floral tunic. Look for one that’s light enough to layer in both fall and spring.

Decadent denim
A quality pair of jeans that fit you like a glove will be your uniform for dressy or casual occasions. Don them with heels to have drinks with friends or add riding boots for the perfect weekend look.

Beautiful blazer
Whether it tops off a power suit or acts as a cover-up over a shift dress, you can’t go wrong with a timeless black blazer. But before investing your hard-earned dollars, make sure you find one that’s tailored to your body type. Opt for a one-button number if you’re busty and steer clear of oversized boyfriend styles if you’re petite.

Cute cardie
Sweet and demure, a cashmere sweater is made to flatter. Plus, it’s lightweight enough to layer year-round so it works for any occasion. Combine it with a contrasting texture or tone and cinch it with a belt.

Haute handbag
Buy one in black, brown or grey, with minimal hardware, for an accessory you can wear with any outfit. Leather ages well, so if you take proper care, you’ll have this investment for life.
