Being a woman can be difficult. We’re constantly assaulted by advertising telling us we need to buy this new thing, or that new thing, and it can be hard to know just what is going to improve our lives, and what will prove to be a waste of money. Luckily, this post has everything you need to know about what you should buy this year, and what you can afford to overlook.
Here are the accessories you need to buy this year:
A classic shoe
Whether you’re a high heel kinda girl, or you love a great flat, it’s crucial that your shoe is versatile, well-designed, and timeless. Let’s face it- we’ve all been guilty of buying too many cheap and fashionable shoes over the year, only to find that they give us huge blisters or go out of fashion before we’ve even worn them more than once. My advice? Pick up a go-to shoe like black Manolo Blaniks that are classic, timeless, and can be worn for job interviews, weddings, funerals, dates, and more.
If you’re looking for something that will actually be useful this year, iPhone accessories are the way to go. Top picks include an iPhone 7 wallet case, which will allow you to store your most important things (think credit cards and your phone) together and cut down on the number of things you need to take out with you. Another good option is an iPhone wallet, which is a great option for a night out, and a wooden phone case which is a stylish and simple way to keep your phone protected this year.
A good blazer
A tailored blazer is feminine, classic, and is one of the few pieces that look great on many different body types. A black blazer can be paired with a variety of different things, including skirts, trousers, little dresses jeans, and more, and you’ll also find a navy blue blazer will help you look both casual and stylish during the day.
A lifetime bag
If you’re like most women, you’ve probably bought a number of bags over the years. But it’s also likely that many of these bags have been cheaply made or have gone out of style quickly. The trick is to look for a lifetime bag- ideally made by your favourite designer and in a colour that can be worn with many different things, like black, camel, tan, or white. You also want to go for a classic shape and avoid choosing anything with too many frills or anything that has recently come into fashion. By choosing well, you may find that this bag is passed down to your daughter one day.
Most women hate jeans shopping, and if you have any parts of your body that feel a little out of proportion, a cheap pair of jeans can make this stand out. Choosing a more expensive pair that actually works with your body shape is one way to make jeans a staple in your closet again.
