Have you been saving yourself some money in Lockdown? Have you not got yourself in to Belfast yet for a long over due treat? In Rio Brazil we have the most perfect investment pieces for you. All in the summer sale as well!

Why buy an investment piece?

Well firstly, buy it because you love it, and because you deserve it! An investment piece is not about how much money something costs, or even cost per wear, it’s more about longevity and having something timeless. A forever piece that you will wear a million times with pleasure and pride, and that you will be excited to wear each time!

Here are some of our top investment picks that we have in store at Rio Brazil..


Jackets and blazers at are one of the key pillars of our wardrobes every season. It doesn’t get cooler than this snakeskin print beautiful soft leather jacket from Munthe. Nothing beats that real leather smell either!

There are so many reasons to make the leap to invest in a real leather jacket and here are our top 5!

1.  It will go with EVERYTHING! From daytime looks with jeans or joggers to teaming it with your fave little black dress you’ll be able to chuck this on with anything.

2.  Its perfect for layering. From adding to an outfit on a chilly summer night or layering it under your Winter coat the leather jacket will serve you the whole year through.

3.  It will never go out of style.

4.  It will get better with age unlike so many other pieces that date.

5.  It adds some edge to any outfit. A leather jacket will toughen up any outfit and give you that rock vibe even if your wearing it with cute florals. It can also dress down any outfit too.

Grenson Boots

In 2018, the ever so stylish Holly Willoughby wore a few pairs of these beauties on T.V and they became the most sought after items on the internet, even customers having a waiting list to get their hands on a pair. They took Instagram by storm.

Grenson, a British name, has been making shoes since 1866, so they know a thing or two about making robust and stylish footwear. They require virtually no wearing in! They might be chunky, but they work surprisingly well with any sort of outfit—whether that’s with a skirt, a dress or a pair of jeans!

The best part about them is the weight, they are SO light, and the Nanette range are perfect for both summer and winter. These are a perfect everyday boot, pull them on with anything and they look great!

Paul Smith Tote Bag

Every woman needs an iconic striped Paul Smith item in their collection.. Receiving a knighthood in honour of his work, Sir Paul Smiths striped print was only intended to be around for one season, however due to its popularity has become a staple in its designs. It has been reinvented a number of times in different colours but is most recognisable in the original bright and beautiful rainbow shades.

A Paul Smith bag is the finishing touch to any outfit, with the tote bag season after season proving to be a best seller. It is the perfect size for every day essentials, and has a cross body strap for comfort and style. All of the Paul Smith bags come with a duster bag to keep your pride and joy as good as the day you invested in it!

Harris Wharf Coat

The Harris Wharf collection is sleek, classic and screams luxury. The British contemporary brand re imagines classic formal wear and outerwear while looking effortless. We have a handpicked collection of beautiful coats that can be worn every season, whether it rains or shines. With the return of the ‘mac’ over the last few years, it is an outfit essential especially with this unpredictable Belfast weather! A mac coat is timeless, and matches pretty much any outfit whether its to layer up over a jumper or to dress up jeans and a tee.

The double faced wool coat is also a lifetime staple piece for your wardrobe. Designed to feel lightweight whilst still keeping you warm. Perfect investment for Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, that’s the luxury of owning a piece of clothing like this.. It really is versatile and you will love it that much you will want to wear it as much as you can!

J Brand Denim

If you are forever on the hunt for the holy grail of jeans, we think J Brand.

These denims are an investment but seriously we would 100% recommend them if you can stretch to a pair. I’m sure you find yourself in recent years spending 40 quid here and 40 quid there on jeans that ended up not ticking the right boxes, stretching out after a couple of washes, gaping & bagging, stretching after one wear. So if you add up a few jean mistakes it’s worth clumping your cash together for a pair you’ll wear practically every day with everything. Especially if comfort and durability is your priority. If J Brands are good enough for Rihanna, JLo and Reese Witherspoon they are most definitely good enough for you!

Trends come and go, but the classics like denim last forever. Jeans have a home in every part of a wardrobe from casual weekend-wear to office-appropriate ensembles.

All of these in store picks are part of the summer sale.. selected lines are up to 50% off! Perfect time to treat yourself to that long awaited investment piece, or maybe even two!
