At the start of this year, I made the executive decision to seriously curb my impulsive purchases and actually save up for the worthwhile wardrobe investments that will outlast trends and outsmart seasons. It’s definitely easier said than done, but this year, I’m setting out to make my closet stronger and much longer lasting.
I know I’m not the only one feeling this way, either. We’re reaching a point in fashion where many of us are experiencing trend fatigue, and while I personally don’t foresee trends ever ceasing to exist, I think the answer to this exhaustion is twofold: narrowing in on a personal style that isn’t so easily swayed by fleeting trends and being a pickier shopper—a much pickier shopper. For me, that means I’m focused on building a wardrobe that’s timeless and trend-agnostic and, most importantly, feels like me.
When it comes to shopping, I’m navigating things with a “fewer, but better” mindset and now that spring’s new arrivals are finally hitting the market, I figured I’d share what I’m currently eyeing in case you, too, want to shop like me. With that, here are the 30 best investment buys I’m prioritizing for spring 2023. They’re cool, they’re classic, and they’re designed to last.
