You’re in your 20s – what now? In a decade full of exciting firsts and daunting uncertainties, one thing is for sure: you’re in the process of building a life (and wardrobe) that you’ll love. For many young women, this means career-catapulting jobs, leaving the family home, or making new best friends. And while you’re busy establishing exactly who you are and what you like, your wardrobe is finding its feet, too.

Gone are the days of frivolous teenage fashion choices because now is the time to invest your well-earned paychecks on a portfolio of pieces that have real style longevity. To get you started, Savoir Flair rounds up the ten key items that will see you through this decade (and all those new ventures) in timeless fashion.

1

The Black Leather Bag

A classic black handbag will never lose its magic. Opt for a shape that can take you through day and night for real cost-per-wear points.

The Effortlessly Chic Button-Down

There’s a reason the button-down shirt is one of the most worn pieces at Fashion Week every season. A classic fit and soft-touch fabric will work just as well for the weekend as it will for your 9 to 5.

Costume jewellery can be fun, but you should always own one quality piece that you’re never seen without and you’ll want to pass on in the years to come.

The Dream-Fit Blazer

Blazers are not just for job interviews. Oversized or nipped-in, the right jacket will work with statement heels and playful pops of color.

The Never-Out-of-Style Heels

A classic pair of patent or leather pumps is the true secret to dressing like a Parisian. Slip them on for evening events or pair with denim for daytime je ne sais quoi.
