Clothes are an investment. And if we’re smart and savvy with purchases, the items we buy today will last for years to come. To help decipher which items deserve the splurge, WY? asked one of our contact contributors, Fenella ‘Fenji’ McCall, the face behind ’My Dress Up Box’ and all round fashion fanatic for five pieces she believes are worth investing in this winter…


1. Every girl should own a beautiful designer handbag. After all, we carry so much with us all the time so why wouldn’t we invest in something beautiful to carry everything in? My top picks are Celine or Givenchy – not necessarily affordable but definitely worth saving for!

2. Where would I be without my leather jacket…? A definite must-have! End of discussion! Head to HUSKand choose between a range of beautiful styles in all different colours.

3. To add to the list, my next investment piece is a quality pair of sunglasses. Karen Walker is my designer of choice with fab designs that are fun, quirky, and super cool! You won’t regret spending up big for these shades…I can assure you! Check out her beautiful range here.

4. Last but certainly not least would be a great pair of
J Brand jeans. They make me feel so good and the soft denim is absolute heaven! I have a few pairs in different shades and colours – my go-to label for the perfect pair of jeans.

WY?’s Top Pick!
I absolutely live in my ankle boots and these should be a staple in every girl’s closet. My booties of choice are the studded buckle Chloe boots, known as the ‘Susan’ or ‘Susanna,’ which I just love! Released a few years ago but always on trend.
