I can't stress this enough: investment pieces are a must in any wardrobe - but they don't necessarily need to break the bank. The best finds, for me, are the ones that are great quality, a classic style, with a small unique feature. I also aim to keep my budget within what I can realistically afford. There's no point in going broke for something because there will always be something else you want.
