Investment dressing

It’s worth spending that little bit extra on timeless classics when revamping your wardrobe

Written by Beth Dadswell

Jaeger have gained a reputation for producing beautifully made clothes in fabrics that last, which is why they were asked to create the uniform for staff at the newly renovated Kensington Palace (unveiled on 26 March).

Their current ready-to-wear spring collections are a winning mix of bold colours, classic shapes and modern accessories that can be worn for work or play.

They’re on the pricey side, but think of them as ‘investment’ pieces – you’ll still be wearing them in 10 years’ time.
