We all know having a beautiful bag completes an outfit. However, designer bags are huge investments and there are so many choices out there. I want to share my personal experience and tips, hopefully they equip you to choose your first one, or your next one.
There are so many type of designer bags out there, understand what kind of bags you normally wear when it comes to style, shape and colour will be the first steps towards making the big decision.
Buying designers is an interesting process as you will learn about yourself even more when it comes to your personality. Are you a fun girlie girl? Miu Miu might be your brand. Do you like something understated and practical? Prada might have your favourite pieces. Looking for something sophisticated and timeless? Chanel and Dior perhaps.
Set A Budget
This is the first thing you should do – knowing how much you are willing to spend. Make sure your budget is your spare money (aka savings), not your essential costs (rent money, food money).
Buy something small and see if you like the designer’s style and craftsmanship. Think wallet, clutch or a bag with entry level price point.
Trend vs Classic
There are so many type of designer bags out there, understand what kind of bags you normally wear when it comes to style, shape and colour will help you make the big decision. Make sure whatever you choose fits your daily essentials.
Don’t be afraid to buy pre-loved / secondhand.
