Girls, it’s tempting to want to buy new clothes and fashion accessories with every passing trend, but that will only give you those nothing-to-wear blues once you get over the fad. A closet filled with staples rather than once-hot items will always help you look well put together no matter what! We give you the fashion items worth saving for. To get the most out of your fashion buck, invest in these essentials that you can wear with confidence every single time!
1. It’s In The Bag
A bag is something that you use every day, so splurging on a roomy, structured bag in a neutral colour is a great fashion decision. It will last you for years and the number of times you use it will basically help it pay for itself.
A beautiful pair of flats will always come to your rescue, especially when you’re going to be on your feet all day or just don’t feel like wearing heels. Slip into these and still be dressed up as well as totally comfy! POPxo Recommends: Zara Frill Detail Ballerinas (Rs 2,890)
3. A Fabulous Statement Jewellery Piece
Well, a piece or two or three. A good quality piece of statement jewellery like pretty danglers, a sparkly necklace or a cocktail ring can add a dash of wow to any outfit. A pretty statement piece is seriously worth saving up for as it can glam up anything you wear from a plain white shirt to a simple anarkali.

4. A Dress That Makes You Feel Fabulous
It’s okay to spend a little extra on a classy dress without any guilt. We’re talking about a number that flatters you, is super sophisticated and makes you feel fabulous. It can be an LBD or any other pretty alternative to it. You can wear a dress like this for a big date, a party or even a big work event.

5. The Wondrous Anarkali
A gorgeous anarkali that is ethereal and elegant is something that you should consider spending a bit extra on. It’s great for weddings, functions and festivals when you don’t feel like wearing a sari. Every girl needs some desi staples in her wardrobe and this is one that will always be there for you. Plus, anarkalis are every girl’s fav as they flatter all body types.
A beautiful pair of party heels that goes with anything is worth spending some dough on. Choose a pair that you seriously love and you’ll definitely find a way to wear them with any dressy outfit. These are a must to have around for Saturday night parties or for just about any formal occasion you attend. POPxo Recommends: Qupid Peep Toe Booties (Rs 2,999)
7. Bras Baby!
There’s a great difference in the quality between bras that you get at department and specialty stores and the ones at your neighborhood store. They need to be made from good fabrics and constructed to provide great support. Better quality bras also offer better fit, which is super important not just for the health of your breasts but also for your overall appearance. A good bra that fits you perfectly can help you look polished and even slimmer. Good innerwear is something that you really shouldn’t compromise on.POPxo Recommends: Zivame Priority Wired Graduated Cups Bra (Rs 795)
8. A Jacket That Screams Chic
Be it a tailored blazer or a super stylish boxy jacket, you need one that you can throw on over anything for some instant style. A jacket like this is sophisticated and stylish at the same time and can bring an entire outfit together. A neutral colour like black, navy blue or even tan will go with anything. When you come across a blazer or jacket that is dressy and instantly makes you feel chic, don’t think twice about buying it. It can bring a classy shot of edgy elegance to even the most casual outfit.
A pair of great quality blue denims that hug you in all the right places will be worth every penny. Whether you prefer skinny, bootcut or straight - invest in a pair that makes you feel good and you’ll be able to wear them everyday.POPxo Recommends: Levi’s Blue Washed Mid Rise Skinny Jeans (Rs 2,240)
10. Sturdy Sunnies
Sunglasses are for so much more than protecting our eyes from the sun - though that is super important too! A super chic pair of great quality that you can wear everywhere and will last you for years is important to save for. They will last you much longer than a pair of trendy plastic frames that you’ll only wear for a season.
