They are on every girl’s wish list! Designer handbags are the most sought-after women’s high-end accessories. Designer handbags represent personality and lifestyle. Splurging on your first high-end designer bag is a major moment in your sartorial life.
Once you dive into research online, you will soon realize that buying a designer handbag can be more than a mere accessory. It is an investment piece that dramatically increases in value, depending on its future demand and scarcity. We advise a first time buyer to always go with a passion investment. Always choose a bag you really love, not one that only looks promising on paper.
However, it is best to avoid one-season-only bags that are trending at the moment. Instead, we recommend choosing one that is a little more universal and classic. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t opt for and colorful, exciting, mood-boosting piece – rather, imagine yourself wearing it five, ten, twenty, or more years from now.
Once you have a dream bag in mind, ask yourself the following:
- Does it suit my budget?
- Do I see myself wearing it decades from now?
- How many occasions do I have to carry it?
- Can I identify myself with the brand?
- Does it fit everything that I need?
- Does it combine well with my wardrobe?

Here is a guide to help you feel more confident when you are ready to purchase the handbag that is right for you. It’s hard, after all, to go wrong with any designer handbag!
- Choose a brand
It can be tough to find exactly what you are looking for with hundreds of luxury brands on the market. Have in mind that quality always wins when it comes to handbags. Excellent craftsmanship and long-lasting materials are key to ensure you can wear it for a lifetime. Brands like Hermès, Prada, Chloe, Givenchy, Dior, Chanel or Bottega Veneta are well-established and coveted manufacturers of leather goods.
- Choose a model
Once you’ve chosen and fallen in love with a brand, choosing the right model to invest in is a thrilling process. There are three things you should be aware of at all times: the bag’s size, care requirements, and occasions. It’s a personal choice when choosing between a classic piece or a more fashion-forward staple. If you plan to grow your collection over time, it may be best to choose a trendy fashion staple so that you can stand out.
- Define your Budget
This is the least fun but most important step when shopping for your first luxury handbag. By determining a budget, you can narrow down your options and save time by not looking at handbags that may be way above, or too far below your budget. It is best to come up with a price range of what you would like to spend. The prices of a designer handbag can vary wildly depending on the designer, materials used, and whether the bag is part of a limited collection. Although the price of luxury is one that many are willing to pay, it’s important to consult your budget before making large impulsive purchases.
if you wish to have a bag that can last a lifetime and maybe even one that you could pass down to generations after you, longevity may be of great importance to you. Choosing a timeless design from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Chanel, or Hermes would probably be the best. These designs have stood the test of time and will continue to do so for many decades to come, this is due to their high-quality manufacturing processes.
If you want your designer bag to last you’ll need to take good care of it.
Here are some tips on how to care for your designer bag and keep it in top condition.
- Always store your bag in its dust cover when you’re not using it.
- Be careful where you place your handbag at home or work. Don’t put it in on the floor or on surfaces that might scratch the hardware.
- Store your bag away from direct sunlight and away from places that attract moisture.
- Buy a leather conditioner and put it on the bag before you use it. You don’t want rain ruining your beautiful new purchase.
- Regularly clean the inside of your bag to avoid smells or stains.
- Buy pre-loved
We recommend browsing the luxury secondhand market if you’re on the hunt for your first-ever luxury handbag. Buying pre-loved you will find great, budget-friendly options and unique models that are no longer in store. Plus: If a bag is pre-loved, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s heavily used, it can be just as new. To check out all our handbags click here
