A reliable coat, hard-wearing boots, classic jewels and a bag to last the distance — investing in items that go beyond seasonal trends adds elegance to your day-to-day hustle. Shajal Singh runs a few errands in key investment pieces for today and beyond

Fuel For Thought
Record fuel prices have shone a light on to our day-to-day spending. Investing in items that last the distance is the way to go. A coat to be worn multiple times, for years to come, passed down through the generations, is one such item. This one is updated with a jolt of green trousers to add style currency and a much-needed boost of optimism. Gucci coat (POA). Toteme T-shirt, $179, from Fabric. Ruby jeans $239. Mi Piaci boots $360. Brie Leon earrings $179.
