Whether it is for you or a loved one, buying a luxury handbag can feel complicated at the best of times. I have put together a guide to choosing your very first luxury bag. You will find all the essential points and questions to ask yourself before making the purchase.
One of the first steps to selecting your new accessory is identifying your style and likes. Each brand has its unique style, colours and details. We do this step unknowingly, as certain bags will be more attractive to us than others. Every brand has a certain work ethic and uses different materials. Digging deeper into the brands you like can reveal a whole new world. Select three of your favourite brands and review their collections to keep your options open.
What Options Does It Offer?
When buying a luxury bag, you want to ensure it will fit your lifestyle and needs. To do so, you can compare models of bags by how versatile they are. By doing this, you will be able to identify the most practical bag. Look for options such as different lengths of straps, small pockets inside, a closable zip, a purse included with the bag, etc. We all want to get the most out of our money, so checking this before committing will save you regret later.
What Do You Need The Bag For?
The most essential questions you can ask yourself when buying a luxury handbag/ bag are. Why?
If you know what you will use the bag for, you will be able to check if the bag's size, shape, depth and height correspond to your use. There is nothing worse than buying a gorgeous bag for it to sit at home unused. Think of what you will put inside of it, in which kind of environment you would use (work/ city/sports), or will it be a multi-purpose bag?
Is it a fashion statement or an accessory that brings together your outfit?
By answering these questions, you will narrow the range of bags to a specific bag type.
Time To Think Of The Budget
We all know that luxury items such as bags can cost money. This is why budgeting such a purchase can save you a lot of time and energy. Whether shopping online or in-store, you can set a maximum budget in your head. If you communicate this to vendors, they will guide you around your options and present you with the collections available. The price of an item is generally defined based on a couple of factors such as brand, materials, designer and how rare the product is.
