As we know - style is more than trends, or this season's 'it' piece. With each coming year our style, while distinctive, changes. We're frequently approaching fashion differently by developing new ways of expressing ourselves. Investing in the new year's trends can be tricky & should be approached with care. Let's just take a brief moment of pause to pay tribute to all of those fallen items we purchased & quickly binned (Um, hi harem pants - you did NOTHING but make me look like an extra in a TLC music video).
So, dear readers - I thought I would save you from the same fate & edit 5 key pieces that I think could be an investment to your wardrobe. Not only do they fall on trend for 2016, but they have longevity. That is what I love about Cherie's selection on Shrimpton Couture is the longevity of the pieces. They are timeless!

Slip dresses, yes! Slip dresses!
Thanks to Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein & my personal fav, Saint Laurent - the slip dress has made a resurgence. Pair the sexy James Galanos slip dress with a pair of your sleekest heels. Add the Fine Czech Crystal Tiara for the ultimate Saint Laurent vibe.
1970s Fine Lace Sexy James Galanos Couture Slip Dress & c.1950 Fine Czech Crystal Tiara Headpiece — both available now at Shrimpton Couture
Inject some bold red hues & some romantic ruffles into your wardrobe. The perfect dress for a warm getaway or worn layered on a special date night.
Swinging fringe is here to stay! This 70s Lord & Taylor Poncho will add glamour to any outfit. Pair with some cropped denim & some soaring heels. It's really the ultimate addition to your wardrobe!
4. Vivid Colour
Just because it's gloomy outside, doesn't mean your outfit needs to be. Inject some colour, like the bold brights shown at Christopher Kane & Dries Van Noten. My pick: This incredible Pucci Velvet Dress. You will definitely turn some heads!
5. Graphic Stripes
Stripes were seen all over the Spring'16 runway in so many varieties. I absolutely love this 70s Givenchy Striped Set, which gives you the option to pair it together or wear as separates. It's such a showstopper!
