Women in the U.K. Spent $1.2 Billion on THIS Fashion Item Last Year (Hint: Victoria Beckham Owns a Lot of Them)

According to the Daily Mail U.K., research firm Mintel reports that half of all British women purchased at least one bag last year as national sales topped nearly $2 billion (or £1.2 billion). And, no, that’s not all due to Victoria Beckham‘s penchant for purchasing luxury leather goods.

Twenty-one percent of the women polled say that they bought the bag to match an outfit from the same store, and 16 percent say they just snagged the coveted item on impulse. Yeah, been there. Even more interesting, British women ages 45 to 54 put more importance on purchasing handbags over underwear (by a 3 percent margin though).

It’s not just the ladies who have their eye on leather accessories. British men are hot on the heels of their female counterparts—one in 10 guys bought a man-bag (or what I like to call a “murse”) last year.
