Most trends are transient by nature, but some pieces have been in circulation for decades, making them a wise investment if you’re planning on updating your wardrobe in 2024. There’s no better time than the new year to evaluate the gaps in your closet and add clothing and accessories which will make getting dressed easier—and more satisfying. Prioritising versatility and honing in on the styles you already wear a tonne is one way to ensure you always feel like the chicest version of yourself. For me, this means pressing pause on trends (however hard this may be) and making sure the foundations are in place first.
With that, the following six categories are where I’ll be focusing my shopping energy this season. I know that each will be a worthwhile purchase that I’ll still wear in two, five and ten years’ time.
