In my opinion, there are 3 fashion pieces that you should be able to invest in.
Coats, Shoes and Bags.
These are the 3 key pieces of your wardrobe that can make a statement while being really practical too. These pieces can be a little more expensive in my opinion because, to be honest, if you buy cheap you buy twice right? So invest in some key pieces that will last you years and you can really get your wear out of them. You can find some really accessible luxury pieces now with the likes of ASOS, Net a Porter, Zara whatever your budget.
How to Choose?
My choice of Material is always a faux leather. I don’t know why you would get real leather if you can get a good faux leather. It’s pretty sustainable it doesn’t show wear and tear quite as easily as other materials and it looks expensive. I like a firm sturdy bag that can hold up, not one that’s flopping about.
If it’s a luxury piece I tend to go for classic styles. Black or white timeless pieces, I find that spending a fair amount of money on a trendy bag doesn’t seem to pay off that well and you don’t really get too much wear out of it once the season changes. I have a couple of trend bags for around £60 pound which is pretty good, I didn’t have to spend a lot so I will easily get my wear out of it but I definitely try and go for more simple classic styles if they are more expensive.
If you do however have a fair amount of classic bags or once you have collected a few classic items then you can always treat yourself to a bold statement trendy handbag of course!
How practical is the bag you are eyeing up? We all have different types of bags for certain occasions, clutch bags are perfect for events or weddings where you only need your phone and credit card and you’re good to go. Luxury pieces need to be practical too If it’s an everyday bag I want to fit all my daily essentials inside. Camera, purse, phone and maybe some doggy essentials for Louie too!
Although it needs to fit everything in I personally don’t like huge bulky bags, this is where the Versace Jeans comes in to play.
I absolutely love backpacks! and this one is by Versace Jeans. They are cute, stylish and soooo practical. I have bought a couple of bags from the high street before but because I use them a lot for all my essentials they tend to kinda fall apart
I carry my camera around most of the time so I don’t want a cheap or flimsy bag that is going to break on me and I found the cutest one.
Versace Jeans is basically the more casual range from Versace. I love how cute and compact this bag is but it is SO chunky so it really fits everything in without looking bulky or big which is what I love about it.
It is sooooo roomy inside and has a zip up pouch at the front which can also hold quite a lot. It also comes with a removable chain strap so you can wear it as a backpack with the normal straps or change it up for an over the shoulder chain strap which I think is super sleek!
It fits everything in while still looking effortlessly stylish. It’s a black faux leather backpack/shoulder bag hybrid with signature logo details.
I consider this an accessible luxury item it’s not exactly cheap but it definitely isn’t Chanel pricing but still really good quality, what do you think?
Do you like accessible luxury? Or do you prefer things more budget-friendly or even more luxe?
