In your 20s: De­signer Jeans. Yeah, yeah, I know it’s hard work, but put in the long hours to find the per­fect pair now and you’ll thank me for the rest of your life. Ev­ery cloth­ing la­bel has a dif­fer­ent-shaped fit model, so once you’ve found the brand of jeans that suits your body, stick with it. A per­fect-fit­ting pair of jeans that makes you feel fan­tas­tic (and your bot­tom look good) is the best ac­ces­sory for any girl’s wardrobe.

Jew­ellery for lay­er­ing. Fine jew­ellery is great for lay­er­ing, can live on your body and goes with prac­ti­cally ev­ery­thing. Pick gold or sil­ver and start col­lect­ing. In your 30s: A great coat. A fan­tas­tic coat fin­ishes an out­fit. Pick a clas­sic style like a swing, trench or duster coat and it’ll last you years.

Fancy heels: Your ca­reer has prob­a­bly well be­gun, and it’s about time you got into some proper shoes. Drop a bit of hard-earned dosh on de­signer shoes and you’ll not only ap­pre­ci­ate the craft­man­ship, they’ll be more com­fort­able as well. Choose a clas­sic nude or black pump to take you to the of­fice, and a fancier pair for spe­cial oc­ca­sions. In your 40s: A cash­mere sweater. They say once you go cash­mere you’ll never go back, and be­lieve me, it’s true. The lux­u­ri­ously soft knit keeps you cool in sum­mer and warm in win­ter. It’s per­fect for plane rides and time­lessly el­e­gant. Start with cash­mere socks and I prom­ise you’ll be hooked.

Pick a clas­sic shape and you’ll never tire of it.
