Investment pieces: defined as anything that isn’t season-specific or tied to one of-the-moment trend. More broadly, investment pieces are high-quality items that you see yourself wearing for the indefinite future. Typically the word “investment” suggests that these pieces need to be high-priced, and thus you have to carefully think through the purchase and take care of the item for it to last a long time — another way to phrase that is “sustainable” shopping. Buying investment pieces forces us to shop consciously. But, if sustainability isn’t enough of a reason to invest in high-quality clothing, then consider the ease of putting together your daily wardrobe. Typically, investment pieces are items that you can match with multiple outfits, getting the most wear out of your clothes and fine-tuning your style in the process.
To help you kickstart your capsule wardrobe or just inspire you to make more conscious shopping decisions, FH Edit has curated a list of brands that are making the best investment pieces sustainably.
