No! its not about who can spend the most, its about who can spend it right. There are pieces that we call investment pieces, these items are either always in trend or style classics. Then there are items that either go in and out of fashion real quick or are used rarely ... no point in spending a fortune on them.
But the ultimate budget style tip is to spend on things that 'look' expensive ... Style Stripped brings you 8 bags that look super expensive but will cost you just a fraction!
The tan leather Bucket by Zara is a very elegant option, its understated elegance is very 'Prada'; the leather quality, color along with the uncomfortable shape of the bag screams luxury.
The top handle Asos has a very vintage shape and a very 'MIU MIU' color palette, its just too cute to pass.
The Aldo is well - very 'Kelly' but in a non pretentious way, the tassel is a very chic feature and the bag doubles as an across the body bag.
The crimson top handle with the golden hardware is a very yummy accessory by Dune, which surprisingly are making better bags every successive collection.
The crocodile bag by ZARA, is an absolutely gorgeous vintage-esq bag, this box creature is as good as an IT bag. The Mandarin beauty by Mango is a small but intensive dose of trend. Lately coral, orange, mandarin have been the rage. New look can never be trusted for quality, however if your looking for a budget buy to follow the neutral trend or/and the top handle than this is it.
My favorite of the bunch is hands down this gorgeous top handle by River Island. The gorgeous two tone leather plays extremely well with the bamboo handle and the vintage hardware... TO DIE FOR!
