5 New Season Investment Pieces We’re Wishlisting Now

As we head into the new season, we may think we need to switch our puff-sleeved sundresses, linen shorts and plateau slides for hardworking pieces that’ll get us through autumn and the friendlier parts of winter... coats, scarves, hats, yikes. But do we really? No! One way of shopping and dressing more sustainably is ignoring the season your clothes were actually made for, and finding smart combos that make them work all year round. Whether it’s boots that extend the shelf life of your go-to summer frock or a jacket that transports your vacay look from sunscreen to computer screen, the key to a long-lasting wardrobe are a few well-thought-out investment pieces that transcend seasons. Easy. Which leaves us with only one question: What do we really need? We — that’s some of the most seasoned dressers we could find in our team — went first:

FARFETCH

Ganni

€442.00
1Alice, Lead Brand Collabs

“I am going for tall, chunky boots with recycled rubber — because who doesn't want to be a Ganni girl? But when I’m spending this much, it needs to be practical as well. These rubber boots are taller than the trend last season but they mean I can remix with my favourite summer dresses, keeping my legs away from jeans as long as possible whilst being completely puddle proof.”

SSENSE

Blue Denim Organic Jacket

€325.00
2Hayley, Senior Fashion Editor

“It’s been 15 years since my body has been wrapped in the perfect denim jacket, and now that I say it outloud I am mortified. Sorry, me! In my memory, this piece should be a seasonally adaptable mid-wash, made from organic or recycled cotton, be big enough to fit a hoodie under, and rigid enough for me to reap the reward of molding it to my body for the next decade. Which brings me to its investment calibre — it doesn't HAVE to be an expensive buy, but it should be a wardrobe classic that you get right the first time so you can hang on to it a long time. More of an emotional investment.”

ALEX MILL

Boy Linen-Twill Vest

€160.28
3Sungyoen, People Experience Coordinator

“I’ve been looking for a nice beige or brown short-sleeved linen suit for some time. I love the unisex fit, the airy material and the timeless design which you could easily turn into a casual outfit or an elevated look for a special occasion like a wedding — either as bride for city hall or as guest. For me, it’s an investment because linen is a long-lasting material if washed and taken care of in the right way. Plus: You can combine it with other pieces or just wear it by itself.”

MAJE

Leather Jacket Maje

€145.00€795.00
4Selin, Visual Content Coordinator

“I have been searching for the perfect fitted biker leather jacket for ages (as my team knows!). I would love to finally find one and just started considering buying a pre-owned one — I’m new to the secondhand game. I am a big fan of leather in general: I feel like you can combine a leather jacket to literally anything: jeans + blouse, romantic dress + boots, wrap skirt + top... It literally turns any outfit into a statement look. The long-lasting material and the versatility make it investment-worthy for me.”

COLD LAUNDRY

Lilac Track Set

€144.00
5Kim, Fashion Editor

“I don’t think I need to explain to anyone why I’m definitely investing in a supersoft, organic sweat suit this time around — I slept on them back in March (figuratively, not literally) and will not make the same mistake again! I can’t wait to snuggle up in bed with it but also just wear it out on chilly (and chill!) days. Plus, both pieces work individually: The oversized sweatshirt can dress down a feminine midi skirt, while the track pants can be elevated with a blouse or tank top and blazer.”
