If there’s anything more embarrassing than wearing a midriff-bearing cashmere tube top and sweater combo, it’s having paid way, way, way too much for it as well.

Fortunately we live and learn, and while I still make fashion mistakes here and there, I’ve streamlined most of my spending into classic items that I know I’ll get at least 5 years out of. Spending money on a quality product actually feels good, especially when you know it will serve your lifestyle well. Take it from someone who’s learned it the hard way — these are 15 items you won’t regret.
