What kind of bag adventures await us this year? Before welcoming the new trends of 2016, it might be time for you to clean out your closet and do a little bit of a bag makeover first. Here are 5 New Year’s resolutions for all the handbag lovers out there:
1. Get to know the labels more.
True bag aficionados are always updated on the latest news from their favorite labels. Designer brands like Louis Vuitton often change the face of their brand, from supermodels to popular celebs, who appear in various commercial ads with the latest bag collections. While it is not really a requirement to know about these designer labels, it definitely helps with the shopping, plus it’s also fun!
2. Organize your closet.
A messy closet is never an appealing sight. If you are a bag collector, it is a must that your babies are all stacked and displayed neatly. Aside from being photo-worthy, keeping your bag closet organized and regularly dusted off will also lengthen your designer bags’ life span.

3. Have a go-to bag.
A go-to bag is an accessory that you can rely on, regardless of the season. Typically, these purses are flattering on any outfit and roomy enough to fit all your daily essentials. If you do not have one yet, make it a top shopping priority this year.

4. Try new things.
If you want to have fun with your accessories this year, step out of your comfort zone and try out new things. While structured totes are always lovely, bags featuring a little bit of quirky detail can easily upgrade a ho-hum outfit. Don’t be afraid to carry unconventional bag shapes and styles this 2016!

5. Invest in timeless styles.
When it comes to splurging on handbags, make sure you invest on styles that you can use all year long. Go for purses with clean lines and solid, neutral colors that can be easily paired with anything inside your closet. Avoid buying trendy bags that might be “hot” one season but are completely unwearable the next.
