The Investment


This season, make your investment piece Chanel’s gold sequined jacket (which I am completely in love with). Seen everywhere this month, including American and British Vogue. Wouldn’t you want the jacket all the editors love? Make it casual with a pair of jeans for day and throw it over a ball gown at night. You can’t go wrong. It may be a little pricey (£23,800), but it is guaranteed to be a show stopper, so don’t be afraid to go CRAZY!
