Guilt Free Investment Pieces


There’s so much fashion choice out there these days, isn’t there? Whether designer or High Street, trendy seasonal pieces are so easy to find, the clothing equivalent of a one night stand.  Here at Rosie On Fire, we use them to supplement a timeless capsule wardrobe, key pieces that carry us through the year regardless of season – our long-term loving relationships.  

We really believe in investing as much as you’re able for quality, they’ll give you the best cost-per-wear of any item in your wardrobe as well as giving the finishing touch to any outfit.  That doesn’t mean you have to play safe; the real classics are the ones that make you fall a little more in love every time you open the wardrobe. 

Here’s a shortlist of the items we think it’s worth splashing the cash for.

As a starter, you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of Levi 501s and a plain white shirt – cotton is best to give a really crisp look and can be paired with an easy-fit pair of plain black trousers and finished with a black Gucci belt and a neck scarf (check out our shop for styling ideas).  Top them with a classic overcoat – think Burberry trench or a flattering Max Mara camel cover-up – or one of our kimonos to give a more bohemian edge.

If you’re feeling in a more feminine mood, try an LBD.  A wrap dress suits all shapes: the go-to is Diane von Furstenberg’s iconic design which channels elegance and style as well as being supremely flattering and zip-free!

Now on to accessories.  First, a classic handbag– if your budget doesn’t stretch to a dreamy Birkin or Chanel don’t fear, the High Street does some great catwalk inspired versions to get the same vibe.  Pair it with a pair of go-with-anything nude heels as regularly worn by the Duchess of Cambridge or a pair of comfortable flats such as a Gucci loafer or a pair of ballet slippers (ASOS do a great pair that look just like Chanel’s two-tone toe-cap version).

For the final touch,  a statement watch will do the trick, with a pair of cool sunglasses and a stunning necklace and earrings duo – we’re obviously bias to our own creations but there are a lot of beautiful choices out there! 

And that’s it! Combos to take you from the office to a party, or from a shopping trip to a dinner à deux.  They don’t have to cost an arm and a leg but get them right and you’ll feel a million dollars every time you step out of the door.

Happy shopping!
