“Shopping smart” isn’t just about holding back from buying those trendy shoes. It’s also about knowing what pieces are worth the investment.

Not sure what’s actually worth the splurge? Below, we share our top five fashion staples below. Trust us, you’ll save money in the long run.

No, we’re not talking about the tiny sunglasses you’ve seen all over Instagram. Find frames that complement your face shape and invest in sunnies that you know you can wear for years to come.

Large tote
Whether you’re running errands or enjoying a romantic date, there are a million and one uses for a large tote, like the Vince Camuto Luck Tote. The pebbled leather makes it look extra luxe while the neutral color scheme is timeless and work-appropriate.

Nude pumps
Ditch the cheap pair that’s giving you blisters and invest in a quality pair that you actually want to wear. Whatever the season, whatever the outfit, a pair of nude pumps will seamlessly match all your ensembles.

Yes, an umbrella is a fashion accessory, too! Instead of purchasing a plain, dingy one, try one that speaks more to your personal style. The Catherine Malandrino Umbrella comes in two gorgeous prints and features an ergonomically-shaped, rubberized handle for a firm grip.

Watches have been and always will be the ultimate arm candy. Splurge on a high-quality watch and stick with more timeless styles, like a leather band, so you get the most bang for your buck.
