The 20/30-Something Guide to Luxury Shopping

While our 20/30-Something guides typically give you the inside scoop on where to eat, visit, and stay in our favorite destinations, today we're looking at how to approach luxury shopping depending on your age.

From the super-luxe scented candles that will elevate your entire home to the Prada investment piece that will last for years, Tayor and Pujah walked us through their go-to luxury gifts in the fashion, accessory, and home space below. 

Taylor's 20-Something Guide to Luxury Shopping

Luxury Fashion for the 20-Something

IRO Blazer: Investing in a super chic blazer is a milestone moment. I have my eye on this white style by IRO. It’s a classic style so I can wear it to work, but can also dress it up with a pair of leather pants for post-work events as well!

Johanna Ortiz Skirt: When thinking about luxury shopping, I always try to think about products and pieces that can be multi-purpose. This cotton wrap skirt by Johanna Ortiz can be worn in a range of ways, from work to a night out and even as a beach coverup.

Luxury Accessories for the 20-Something

Fendi Small Wallet: High-end is the only way to go when shopping for a new wallet. This beige small wallet by Fendi is beautifully made and such a statement piece–which makes it the perfect luxury gift to splurge on.

The Row Barely There Sandal: These sandals have turned into a classic and I think that every girl needs a clean but low heel in their closet. This style is a must-have!

Dior Saddle Bag: The one thing you can always count on in the fashion industry is for old styles to make a comeback and the Dior saddle bag did just that. They’re definitely on the pricier side but this bag is the kind of investment piece that would have forever and then possibly pass on to your daughter down the line!

Luxury Home Ideas for the 20-Something

Cartier Small Pocket Diary: I love the idea of having a super-luxurious journal or diary in my home. This sleek black version from Cartier is on my wish list.

Jonathan Adler Backgammon Set: If you’re looking to purchase games for your home, why not go for a super-luxe option? I love Jonathan Adler, and this bright backgammon set is the perfect way to add some style to your home.

Diptyque Candle: Not only do these candles smell amazing but they also last forever. Plus the black on black is super chic on a coffee table. A candle that doubles as a home decor accent piece? Sign me up.

Pujah's 30-Something Guide to Luxury Shopping

Luxury Fashion for the 30-Something

SAINT LAURENT Sandals: Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury prêt-à-porter, synonymous with youth and freedom–which is clear whenever you see this brand’s shoes! I recently bought my first pair of YSL’s and already know I’ll be wearing them for years and years and years to come.

Prada Galleria Tote: This was my first luxury handbag purchase straight from Milan, and let me tell you–I’ve never been happier. One of the key things to remember when purchasing a lux handbag is always viewing it as an investment. Finding a bag with a clean, minimal design and roomy interior will go a long, long way. This bag stands the test of time. Chic and elegant–I’ve had it for about 6 years and it’s still a staple in my closet. 

Tom Ford Blazer: A classic black blazer should be a staple in every closet. There is something about its ability to blur the line between strictly masculine and feminine dressing. Finding one that fits perfectly with a sexy silhouette and the right amount of shoulder padding feels like Christmas morning.

Luxury Accessories for the 30-Something

Hermès Timepiece: I love a minimal style watch combined with a statement color. It brings the perfect amount of trendy elegance and is also super easy to style. This one from Hermes is the perfect example. It makes a statement but the simple architecture makes it a style you can wear every day.

Oliver Peoples Sunglasses: I love this brand of sunglasses! I can’t get enough of their chic, vintage frames. All of their frames are handcrafted and have this laid-back, Old Hollywood feel. I especially love their aviator collection!

Luxury Home Ideas for the 30-Something

Axel Vervoordt: Portraits of Interiors and John Galliano for Dior: I have always loved coffee table books. Part informative, part photographic ode. There are a number of books that will spruce up your living area and pique your curiosity. These two titles are my favorite at the moment!

Jo Malone London Candles: These candles are my most prized possession in my home right now. The velvet rose and oud scent is my current favorite–one sniff provides this magnetic air of luxury that I just can’t get enough of!

Anderson-Leather Upholstered Bench: If you’re looking to refresh and zhuzh up your home or apartment, it’s easy to add a little bit of luxury by incorporating a new seating accent. This one from Anthropologie compliments my entryway so well! Crazy how one piece of furniture can transform your entire home!
