Apparently we’re all supposed to be investing for Spring/Summer 09. It’s all about spending on a key piece and building various looks around it using your existing wardrobe to create your own individual style. Yes, fashion just got frugal!

In these testing times we all want to get the most out of our clothes so we’re going back to the ABC’s of fashion – Always Buy Classics. Stick to the ABC rule and you’ll not only look ultra stylish but you’ll also save a fortune. So if you have the urge to splurge, here’s our heads up on the best pieces to buy now.

Clever styling can allow you to reinvent yourself. The dress is a wardrobe staple which you can make work for you by simply adding various accessories to achieve different looks.

Here we take our investment buy Burberry’s shirt dress (£315) perfect for work or weekend. It will carry you effortlessly through to Spring/Summer. For work keep things simple with a pair of killer heels and add another classic to your work wear wardrobe: the trench coat. This version by Topshop won’t break the bank at £70 and will keep you stylish (and warm) right up until summer. For a chic weekend look treat your feet with flats, and add tonal accessories to dress up your look and add a hint of colour.
