Last year, I shared this post on the best designer bags to invest in, and I had gotten such great feedback on it that I decided to do another one for 2022! The start of a new year is typically the best time to reflect on your wardrobe and think about the pieces that you really want to invest in. If you’ve been saving for a while, there are definitely a few things you should consider before making the jump. I always like to think about how much wear I’ll get out of it – and how well the item will retain its value. I’ll sometimes be a little more flexible on the value aspect if something really brings me joy and I know I’ll use it for a long time. If you’re wondering what those bags are for me right now, keep scrolling for the 8 pieces on my wish list. I also include more affordable dupes for each of my top picks too.
