Mixing high and low like a pro is an art, period. It’s hands down one of the biggest trends of the last few seasons, and luckily we’re obsessed because it’s a trend with serious staying power. The trend starts with an investment piece and is completed by the affordable finds that complement it. But which investment pieces and which affordable picks are sartorial soulmates? What to team up with your killer splurges, like a Gentle Fawn coat, a Karen Kell leather bag, and ankle boots by Modern Vice, and a Line & Dot sequin dress? Cue the wheel. We’re taking the guesswork out of mixing investment pieces with their affordable counterparts. Spin your way to high and low haute-ness.
Fashion truth #263: an investment piece makes the entire outfit look utterly amazing. Duh. But we’re just as crazy about the perfectly matched affordable pieces that let us put some cash away in our piggy bank for shows. What’s an investment piece exactly you ask? Investment pieces are the covet-worthy must-haves that are on-trend but versatile, so you’ll wear them constantly. And a true investment piece is awesome this season, but sure to be awesome the next, making it worth every damn penny. We’re not even gonna lie…just the thought of a pair of ankle booties we’re saving up for can be the light at the end the daily grind tunnel.
