10 Investment Pieces
You’ll Have Forever

Throwing down for season-specific trendy pieces is a gamble. There’s no way to really predict what will be a long-term relationship and what will be no more than a one-weekend stand. But playing it smart doesn’t have to mean playing it safe. The real classics are the pieces that make you fall a little bit in love every time you open your closet.
