The one fashion investment you should make in 2016

rexfeatures_2111578f.jpg

We've finally found the perfect excuse to invest in a pricey handbag.

A new study from website Baghunter has predicted the value of a Hermès Birkin bag will double over the next 10 years, making it a "historically safer investment than the stock market".

Unfortunately, the Birkin is one of the most exclusive bags in the world, with wait lists that spiral on for years. Loved by celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum and the Kardashian and Jenner sisters, they have become a status signal. 

There are a number of websites that sell second hand versions of the handbag, such as Bag Hunter itself, but these beauties will still set you back anywhere from $9,500 (approximately £6583) to $28,500 (approximately £19751).

However, if you do manage to get your hands on one, rest assured the bags are predicted to be a better value investment than both the stock market and gold. Take a look at some of the A-listers who have invested wisely below...
