Aussie Investments for Winter

Clothes

We read Kirsten Galliott’s Editor’s Note in the April edition of InStyle Magazine and couldn’t agree more with her approach to fashion, shopping and spending.

We all shop for fashion in different ways.

Maybe you like to stretch your budget over lots of lower priced items, or perhaps you prefer to buy fewer, higher-end pieces, or maybe you do a bit of both?

Regardless of your spending habits, there will most likely come a time (each season/year/millennia) when you are in the market for a solid investment piece. It could be for a special occasion, or maybe you just got your tax return back, or you just feel like treating yourself.

The good news is, if you’re looking to invest right now then we’ve found some gorgeous pieces from Australian designers that will pay immediate dividends and keep the returns coming year after year. These are high-quality, high-impact garments, and all from our local talent.

Personally, when it comes to high-end investments for our wardrobe, it’s all about the jackets and the boots…

What and who do you like to invest in?

Apart from separating with your hard-earned money, the hardest part of ‘investment’ shopping is settling on just one piece… but then it’s never wise to put all your eggs in one basket, much better to diversify!
