INVESTMENT plan by Sarah Joynt
SIX S&E* pieces worth investing in.
When buying a pair of statement shoes such as Finsk’s pony hair wooden-heeled wedges, you must consider a number of important factors. Beyond comfort and walk-ability, the materials in the shoe are a great indicator of how well they will weather the wear and tear of long-term use. The beauty of a wedged platform is its stability; you get all the height of a traditional heel without the worry of toppling over and you don’t have to worry about grinding your stiletto into a sharp point. The sustainable nature of the wooden heel paired with Finsk’s award-winning design makes this shoe a sure investment and a classic that you’ll wear season after season.

A quality leather jacket is a musthave investment piece. This draped and zipper embellished version by Danish designer Barbara i Gongini pairs elements of practical function with undeniable style. The beauty of a jacket like this is that it is as chic with a pair of jeans and boots as it is with a floral dress. This is the type of jacket that not only lasts for years, but can also become an integral piece in the development of your signature look. Don’t be afraid to take risks with your investment pieces because they almost always pay off in style. BARBARA I GONGINI Leather Jacket Price: £750.00 www.sixtynineb.com
