One of GYPO’s golden rules is to always shop your closet first. If you have a solid base, then it’s easy to mix and match what you have to create endless possibilities. Another golden rule at GYPO is that there are certain pieces totally worth investing in. These are pieces that are classic and timeless, they will be worn year after year and it’s worth it to have something that will stand up to the challenge of being worn that much. But, as we all know, it takes time to build up a go-to closet and even longer to obtain all the investment pieces we long for. If you’re going to invest in one piece this spring, may we make a few suggestions? Below are some wonderful investment options to add to your closet and if you’re still not ready to make the plunge, I’ve included a budget-friendly option as well.
1. White Denim
White denim goes with everything and can be worn through multiple seasons. When selecting the perfect pair, opt for ones that are simple in design and don’t include a lot of trendy elements that may date them. We know the challenges of finding the right pair – too thick and you’re sweating all spring/summer long, too thin and they become see through and no one wants that! But I promise, don’t stop until you find the perfect pair, you’ll be happy you did and then you’ll be able to enjoy them with all the other staples in your closet!
2. Taupe Shoes
Whether you choose booties, sandals, wedges or flats, having a fabulous pair of taupe shoes is an essential closet staple. They go with everything and can easily elevate any outfit. Just make sure they satisfy your level of comfort or they’ll never make it out of your closet!
3. Denim Jacket
This is one of my favorite closet staples because it goes with EVERYTHING from your favorite dress, color bottoms and yes, even your jeans. Just be sure you are wearing a wash different from your jacket and it will work, I promise you! Plus, a great denim jacket can be worn at least two, maybe even three seasons out of the year depending on where you live. When choosing a denim jacket, pick one that has some stretch to it, that way it will move with you and you won’t feel so constricted.
