Your handbag is the essential and iconic part of your wardrobe. It is the piece that holds everything together. It can say so much about you and your style, but why have bags become such a good investment?
Whether you are rating your return on the profit of resale, the amount of times you wear it, how long it lasts or how many times it takes your outfit from a 1 to a 10. Here is why a designer bag is a good investment…
#1 Creating a forever wardrobe
Your handbag is the one part of your outfit that you will often wear on repeat. Whether you pick the same one for your going-out looks, office days or weekend outings, finding one that you love and will wear forever is key.
Depending on the material, many designer bags have the potential to last you a lifetime. This makes for a wise and ethical investment. Firstly because of the number of times you wear it but also moving away from fast fashion. It means contributing to a circular economy and not the rising climate crisis linked to the fashion industry.
#2 The fashion trend cycle
With the rise of Y2K trends and 90’s British subcultures, we are all aware that everything always comes back in fashion. If you are being swayed by bright colours and printed bags but have thought, “I worry this will go out of fashion”, think about the long-term investment you are making.
They say that roughly every 30 years, fashion makes a full cycle, so you can be assured that your bag if you keep hold of it, will be back in again.
