These iconic designer handbags never go out of style!


These iconic designer handbags never go out of style!

Invest in a good pair of shoes and a bag‘, my grandma always said. I think very highly of my grandmother, and certainly when it comes to fashion. She is 76 years old, but still looks very stylish and on trend. She still wears heels every day and never leaves the house without a beautiful coat and bag! I probably inherited my bag-addiction from her. From fun bags, to vintage jewels and from seasonal ones to iconic designer handbags: they are all on my wish list. But when you want to invest in an expensive handbag, it could be a major decision. And to help you I give you my style tips that will make it easier for you to find your perfect investment bag:

  1. Invest in an iconic handbag, a timeless piece that never go out of style;
  2. Ask yourself the question: would I still want to buy it if the label was cut out?;
  3. Keep it plain so avoid big logos and a lot of hardware;
  4. Choose leather as the material of your new bag as it will look better as it grows older;
  5. Pick a neutral colour that matches any look and style;
  6. Go for a structured handbag as it will better retain its shape after normal wear and tear; and
  7. Make sure that you don’t have a similar bag in your collection.

I hope these tips and questions will help you to find the iconic designer bag of your dreams. And to get inspired, make sure you check out the beautiful investment bags below:

    I’m obsessed with this Celine bag!

    • I know right?!?!? So so beautiful!! Perfect for a Parisian like you;)! Xx

  • I find that great classic designer bags are just timeless and I agree with your tips. The monogram is fine for huge brands like LV and Gucci, if you can find a classic shape, but even if the shape goes out for awhile, they seem to always come back in style, which is a relief sometimes haha.

    I think a good thing to take notice is if a type of bag has been in for 2-3 years you’ll probably find it’ll be in for much longer right? ❤ Great post Suzanne!

    Have a great weekend!
