I would like to buy my niece a handbag for Christmas but I have absolutely no clue as to what type of style is fashionable. I know what I like, but fear it may condemn her to teenage fashion purgatory! I'm looking to spend £50- £75.
Please can anyone guide me in the right direction for brands and styles? I've noticed a lot of Michael Kors but those are a little out of my budget range.
Will a 15 year old use a "handbag"? DD bought herself at 16 a really nice small and suede black leather rucksack which cost about £55 and she still uses it 4 years later as an everyday bag for her keys, rail pass, kindle, purse, tampons etc
I'm not sure! She did ask for one although perhaps something like the suede rucksack might be more suitable. I think the problem is that she doesn't seem sure either. Sigh! I'll think I'll need to go back and ask for clarification!
I would just flat out ask her. 15 year olds are notoriously picky - it might be that she assumes you would know what she likes and not get that you might flounder. I think most 15 year olds would like something slouchy looking from a funky brand (can't help you there though!)
