How to spot a Juicy Couture Knock-Off

If you are thinking of buying a Juicy Couture handbag, you have to be aware that there are fakes circulating in the open market. The fact is, some of the fakes are hard to spot, but like everything else in life the “devil is in the details”. Of course if you buy from a reputable dealer or the official Juicy Couture website you have nothing to worry about.

The first thing to examine is the quality of materials of the bag in question. Juicy Couture handbags are always made of the finest leather. If it feels thick or isn’t supple, that is an indication that it might be fake. Secondly, examine the stitching and make sure it's flawless. Each Juicy Couture handbag is made to exact specifications and is inspected before they are placed in stores.

The inside lining of a Juicy Couture hand bag is always made of cotton, so if the inside fabric is anything different, it's a fake. Even if it has an official-looking tag on it and is sold in a local store, you have to be on your toes when buying any high end designer fashion or accessory. Of course, the larger chain stores have their reputations to uphold and would never sell fakes.
