Anyone can make bad purchases. Whether clothes, shoes, or bags, bad purchases lead to frustration, cost money, and put you in a bad mood. When purchasing bags, women can make mistakes if they don’t do their homework beforehand. Knowing these mistakes can help avoid bad purchases in the future. The following are some of the mistakes make when buying a bag:
Joining Every Trend
It’s nice to be trendy but not all trends are worth following. The only trend you must follow is one that suits you and you feel comfortable with. When trying to be trendy with your bags collections, ensure you have a collection of timeless bags and bags with a short trend duration. As trend bags are often only modern for a season or two, you need to have classics at hand as a backup.
Using a Bag for the Wrong Occasion
Women like small clutches with sequins because of their beauty. But, if you tend to carry many documents, books, snacks, and laptops with you every day, you simply cannot count on an evening bag. The bag you must buy should fit the occasion and be chosen based on it.
For daily use, invest in a practical messenger bag or spacious leather handbags. For clubbing or dinner, go for a chic clutch and a practical travel bag for travelling.
Choosing Quantity Over Quality
Bags displayed in shop windows are eye-catching and you may be tempted to buy any bags you can find and afford. However, should you purchase ten fake leather bags with cheap seams and stuck zipper because they are on sale? You will only waste money on items you may only use for a while or not use at all.
Instead, always invest in quality bags. Sturdy leather bags guarantee durability. Their zippers don’t wear out even after years and the seams can withstand heavy loads.
Getting What Your Friends Have
When picking an outfit, it is always best to be true to yourself. Create your style and establish it instead of copying your friend’s. You can always play around with colours, styles, and shapes until you can find your direction and feel at ease.
Not Taking Time to Buy a Bag
Shopping in a hurry can end up in bad purchases. When shopping for a bag, go calmly to find one you truly love. Find out about the current offers before you purchase a bag. Browse through the collections of your favorite designers and make a rough choice.
