Last month I wrote about wearable trends to try this season, and as many of you know, I am a firm believer in being wise when it comes to spending money on trends. It's best to try out something lower-end before investing if you're not sure the style will be something you'll want to wear forever. However, there are a few things that are probably here to stay, and are worth shelling out a little more for if you know you'll wear the heck out of them.
The pieces listed below are ones that can easily pair with other less-expensive pieces, and can be mixed with trendier items for years to come. When you spend a little more on these items, you'll end up elevating the rest of your outfit, too. Creating a wardrobe concotion like this is how a personal style is born!
