Designer Handbags: Five Keys to Finding the Perfect Bag

Aug 5, 2008
Looking into investing in a nice, stylish handbag? As a fashion lover, you know how nice a well matched handbag can be for completing your look. The right handbag can help you look fashionable, confident, and radiant.

But, how do you make the right decision about which handbag to buy? After all, there are many designers and labels to choose from, how do you find the right look for you? To help out, I've written up five tips to help you find the perfect handbag for your needs.

1. Be Yourself

This is really key. Many people, when shopping for fashion accessories such as handbags, will look to celebrities for cues on what to purchase. Others will look to the latest trends listed in fashion magazines. There's nothing wrong with looking for tips for working out your look, but just because a certain design is trendy doesn't mean it will work for you. Know your look, and pick a bag that will complement it. Don't just blindly follow trends,

2. Know Your Colors

Unless you're rich enough to afford a handbag in every possible color and pattern, you'll need to choose your colors carefully. Take a close look at your wardrobe, and see what colors work well for you. Those flashy colors may look cool in the store, but if they don't with your clothes, you'll never wear it. This is the place to be honest with yourself.

3. Know Your Price Range

Even the snazziest handbag out there isn't worth going into debt for. Know your price range, stick with it, and you'll be much happier in the long run.

4. Know Your Designers

As you shop for bags, you'll begin to learn the differences between different designers and styles. Find which looks work for you. If you're looking for a more classic look, Coach bags might be for you. If you're looking to get a little edgier, Dolce and Gabbana might work for you. Just shop around, and once again, be honest with yourself about your needs.

5. Shop Smart

Once you've picked out the bag you want, don't just walk straight into the designer's store, or a department store, and shell out the big bucks for a retail priced bag. Instead, try looking online for discounted handbags. You might worry about authenticity, but if you do your homework, and read up on the sellers, you'll be able to get a great handbag at a much lower price than you might pay in the store.

So, I hope this helps you out with understanding how you can go about finding yourself a stylish handbag. If you buy well for your look, your bag should last quite a while, surviving the eternal ebb and flow of fashion trends, and providing a brilliant fixture in your ensemble for years to come. Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
