Trends come and go, but some pieces will never fade. Here are a few items that are worth the investment, no matter your age.
1. A Watch
Nobody wants to be known as the woman who is always running late. Being on time shows maturity and respect. We all have commitments, and a timepiece on your wrist will ensure you meet your appointments even when your phone dies.

4. Everyday bag
A tote bag is big enough to fit all your goods in style. As women, we carry our lives in handbags. So, choose one in a neutral or dark shade; this will work with any outfit to ensure the most mileage.

5. Leather bag
Although pricey, if well-taken care of, it will last you for years. This makes it a must in your accessory closet.

6. Classic sunnies
While it’s great to have a variety of styles to choose from, classic shapes such as cateye, oversized and aviators are an investment. This is because they are still popular.
