Living In Luxury: 10 Best Designer Bags To Invest In

Pamper yourself! High-end brands are constantly creating beautiful purses and if you’re looking to splurge, check out our list of the best designer bags to invest in.

I’m not sure how you feel on the matter, but purses are forever. If you treat your handbags well, they’ll last a very long time. When it comes to the styles that you love and covet, you might be lusting after a particular brand with a very high price tag.

Although you may not be able to afford all of them on the list, these are some of the hottest and wanted bags to hit the markets. Check out which brands and bags made it onto our best designer bags to invest in.

Celine – Belt ($2400)


When we said designer, we meant it. High fashion comes with very high price tags, and this Celine “Belt” handbag is no different. Seen on celebrities like model Rosie Huntington-Whitely and singer Jessie J., this purse is a classic.

The belted detail on this purse is one you won’t see on many other pieces and this is what helps set the Celine “Belt” bag a part from the rest.

This style comes in a variety of pleasing colors, but the one that stands out is the black and white belt bag that features black belted details along the white body of the purse.

Givenchy – Antigona ($2435)


Although we’re going alphabetically, the Givenchy “Antigona” might be number one on the “Best Designer Bags to Invest In” list. This purse has been a craze over the past two years, and I don’t see it dying down.

The structure of this bag is what causes it to be so loved. This style of bag is almost hexagonal in shape and gives the purse a unique look. This purse also features a folded envelope detail along the top with a “Givenchy” logo.

Everyone and their mother have been seen rocking this purse from Miranda Kerr, Chrissy Teigen, and Candace Swanepoel to Zoe Saldana, Sofia Vergara, and Kourtney Kardashian.

Kate Spade – Perri Lane Romy ($398)


This is one bag that we haven’t seen on many celebrities, but we’re not bothered by it! The design of this bag precedes any influence we could possibly need from an outside source. The unique features earn its place on our list of “Best Designer Bags to Invest In.”

First, when compared to the price of the previous Celine and Givenchy bag, I’m sure you can already note that this Kate Spade purse is a sixth of their price.

This bag features two inside compartments separated by a center zipper, but that’s not what draws our attention. As seen in this picture, this bag features a stunning side detail of a doily while some of her other designs feature a jacquard print. The nice structuring of this bag and the style make it a purse we wouldn’t mind investing in!

Louis Vuitton – Neverfull ($1260)


If you’re in the market for an amazing travel or hoarder bag, this Louis Vuitton “Neverfull” is definitely a bag you need to know about. If you need a huge purse that seems like a bottomless pit, this is the one for you.

This bag features the classic dark brown Louis Vuitton logos across the body, but the bag is also available in their checkered design set against beige details.

Unlike the other purses on our list, this bag also comes with a removable clutch that matches the design of the bag. If you won’t take my word for it, you might’ve noticed the celebrities who wear them like Paris Hilton and Hilary Duff!

Marc Jacobs – Gotham Saddle ($450)


This is another purse that is on the growing list of best designer bags to invest in. Not only is the price point a bonus, but its distinct shape will definitely get you noticed!

First, this lightweight bag is the best choice for a crossbody, but we’re also here for its design. The rounded shape of the Marc Jacobs “Gotham Saddle” bag breaks away from the classic square or rectangular crossbodies we’re used to seeing.

In another form of style and flair, the straps of this bag help liven up with already fun choice.

Michael Kors – Hamilton ($179)


If you’re looking for a designer bag that definitely won’t break the bank, you won’t lose any sleep over caving in for the Michael Kors “Hamilton” bag.

While purchasing a bag like the Givenchy “Antigona” might something you gift yourself for a successful 2 years, this MK bag is something you could easily gift yourself or tack on to a holiday wish list.

Not only does the structured shape of this purse give it the feel of a high quality bag, but the lock and key design has been a growing trend in recent handbags. This luxurious bag is made of saffiano leather and can be easily transformed from a handbag to a shoulder bag.

Michael Kors – Selma ($298)


If we’re following in the footsteps of some of fashion biggest names, why wouldn’t we take a note from models like Ashley Greene and Miranda Kerr?

Both of these models have been seen with the Michael Kors “Selma” bag, and we understand why! Although this purse use to be available in colors like neon yellow and red, they still have an impressive six colors to choose from which include antique rose, moss, and plum.

Prada – Saffiano ($2390)


Looking at all the brands and bags on this list, if there’s one bag that most celebrities own, it is probably the Prada “Saffiano” tote. Celebrities like Rihanna, Naya Rivera, and Taylor Swift have been seen toting this beauty around and it’s definitely one of our favorites!

What this purse lacks in pizzazz and drama, it makes up for with its clean and crisp structuring. This tote bag features a sleek shape and a simple hardware, but the look of it alone is enough to make us want it in our closet.

Rebecca Minkoff – Amorous ($325)


The one celebrity’s name that has constantly popped up on this list is Miranda Kerr, but what else could you expect from the supermodel? This is yet another fabulous purse that she is a fan of.

The Rebecca Minkoff “Amorous” satchel is design with a classic rectangular look, but the bag becomes its own with the structured detailing at the top.

The colors range from soft pastels like this baby pink and range all the way to black. All the purses feature gold hardware and can be worn as a handbag or shoulder bag. From the style to the price, this bag is definitely something you could get your hands on.

Tory Burch – Fleming ($565)


We have come to the last item on our list of “Best Designer Bags to Invest In.” Last, but certainly not least, the Tory Burch “Fleming” tote might be my personal favorite design of all these options.

This bag has a few details that set it apart from the rest. Not only does this tote bag include a diamond quilted design along the body, but it also features a chain strap detail that gives it a soft yet edgy touch.

That concludes our list of “Best Designer Bags to Invest In!” As I mentioned before, when it comes to high-end brands, the prices are high, but you just have to know when and where to splurge.

The last thing you need to remember is to take care of your purses and they will take care of you by last a long time!
