On your doorstep, immediate shipping and COD, if you are a frequent online shopper you know the lure of these terms.
With clothes, shoes and accessories doing the rounds, I have often found that more than anything else, it’s easier to pick a handbag. The truth? It’s really not! The right handbag can jazz up your look and complete your attire. Pick a wrong one and it clashes with your outfit. So here’s how to be a smart shopper when shopping for bags online-
1. Does It Compliment Your Body Type?
Not every bag is meant for every woman. We are unique and so are the things that look good on us. Pick a bag that flatters your body type. If you have an hourglass figure go for a shoulder bag that accentuates that curve! If you are heavier on the bottom, opt for a bag that ends at your waist thus, taking the focus away from your reary!
2. Control That Impulse
The material and seller warranty matters a lot. Read between the lines and know your product in and out.
3. Do Not Drool over Discounts
With online shopping breaking all records, the competitive market sometimes tosses you amidst unbelievable discounts. What do you do when you spot a 50% off? You keep calm and consider value for money.
4. Compartments and Pockets
At the end of the day all that jazz in a bag comes down to its utility. Know your requirements and see if the bag fulfills it. Check the number of pockets and compartments before proceeding to check out.
5. The Size of the Bag
Here again, it is important to know what suits you! Check the size of the bag and then indulge any further.
6. Straps and Handles
Your handbag is your most trusted friend. It will be by your side all day long. Check the comfort factor on straps and handles before punching in those magical credit card numbers.
7. Care and Maintenance
Read the care and maintenance instructions carefully before bringing that baby home.
If the price is too good to be true, there might be a catch! While buying designer bags look for the seal of authenticity. Contact the customer-care handle if need be but do not at any point give in to impulse. Trust me you do not want to end up with a rip-off.
