30 Ways To Wear: Louis Vuitton Neverfull in Damier Azur (#30Wears)

Thought it was time to feature another handbag for this month's 30 wears post. Every month, I take advantage of having a daily record of my outfits as I look through the blog and find something I've worn 30 times or more, and share it with you as part of the 30 wears challenge. I started it in 2017, and it's a lot of fun!



30 Ways To Wear: Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull


30 ways to wear a Louis Vuitton Damier Azur MM Neverfull Tote Bag | awayfromtheblue blog


I got this neverfull bag all the way back in 2011, so it's 7 years old this year. When I looked through the blog I realised I'd worn it a lot more than 30 times. Given all the times it's been worn on the blog, and having it a year before I started blogging, it's easy to assume it's had over 100 wears. In keeping with the theme though, I've picked just 30 of my favourite outfits to share here.

In terms of cost per wear, this is still high. I did have a vintage speedy bag that was 20 years old and still going, so I expect this 7-year-old-bag to also be around and be used in another 13 years.

That's the thing with investing in bags, you expect to have a lot of years of use to recoup the cost you spent. It was $875 at the time, so around 100 wears is $8.75 a wear. Retail of this bag now from Louis Vuitton is more than double, at $1,810 AUD! That's after 7 years worth of price rises, so I'm not to concerned at my high cost per wear, it could be worse! To be fair, the new bag comes with a little pouch too, so it's not just needless price increases. Still a big difference in price though.

But a good thing to remember - if you're saving up for a designer bag like this, save up and buy the bag as soon as you can, before the price is increased out of your budget! Plus you deserve a splurge now and then 😉

Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Maxi Dresses


Louis Vuitton Neverfull ways to wear with maxi dresses | away from the blue


While I love tiny little cross body bags and clutches like the Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC with my maxi dresses, a big holdall tote like the neverfull looks great too. It's such effortless style, picking a big tote bag and a classic maxi dress.


Damier Neverfull and Jeans


ways to wear Louis Vuitton Damier Azur Neverfull tote with jeans | awayfromblue


It's not just maxi dresses a neverfull looks great with! You can easily pair the bag with casual outfits, and I often wear mine with jeans. Skinny jeans are my go-to choice, but any pair of jeans works well with a tote bag, even those metallic ones in the third picture.


Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Dresses In The Office


Outfit Ideas Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote and dresses for the office | away from the blue


While a neverfull looks great on weekends with a maxi dress or jeans, it also functions perfectly as a big tote for the office. On days where I have multiple meetings to attend or I'm away from my desk for an extended length of time, I like to take the neverfull bag as it has room for any files or notebooks I need, as well as a bottle of water and a cardigan if necessary.

3 ways to wear Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Pencil Skirts | away from blue


Just like the dresses above, a neverfull works great with pencil skirts to the office too. I have the damier azur neverfull with the blue checkerboard print, so as you can see from these photos I like pairing it with purple! Blue and purple is one of my frequently worn colour combinations.


Louis Vuitton Neverfull At The Beach


4 outfit ideas Louis Vuitton damier azur neverfull bag at the beach | awayfromtheblue


Of course it's not just a workplace you can wear your neverfull! Being such an easy to care for tote it's a good bag to take to the beach, as you can just wipe away the sand. The body is coated canvas so wipes clean easily with a baby-wipe! You can see the versatility of the bag in these four photos too, as it works with the denim shorts or maxi dresses, all good outfits for a day at the beach.


Damier Azur Neverfull In Winter


Wearing the Damier Azur Neverfull Tote In Winter: 3 Outfit Ideas | awayfromtheblue


While the spring-like white and blue damier azur print looks perfect in a beach setting, I don't reserve the bag for exclusive spring or summer wear. It's a nice bag to wear in winter too, to add a little lightness to your outfit. The damier azur neverfull has leather handles and trim so I would keep it dry and wouldn't take it out on a snowy or rainy winter day, but it does look just as good in the cold as in the heat. Definitely a year-round bag.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull And Striped Skirts


3 Outfit ideas with Louis Vuitton Neverfull And Striped Skirts | awayfromtheblue


The monogram and damier print neverfull bags are easier to wear than you think! I don't have any problems pairing the printed bag with an outfit that has a print in it. Of course, stripes are my staple for pattern mixing so they are a good option to start out with if you're unsure about what prints to wear with the damier print bag.


Damier Azur Neverfull and Print Mixing


4 ways to wear Louis Vuitton damier neverfull with printed pieces | away from blue


It's not just stripes you can wear the printed neverfull with! I really do see the classic damier azur print as a neutral, and I'll wear it with bold prints like florals, or even in an outfit I'm already print mixing with as a third print. You can easily wear this with printed dresses, skirts or scarves.


Louis Vuitton Neverfull In Pregnancy


3 ways to wear Louis Vuitton neverfull in pregnancy with baby bump | away from blue


You need to carry quite a lot in pregnancy! Whether it's the bottle of water you constantly sip from, various crackers, ginger tablets or lollies that help you overcome morning sickness, or snacks for the second trimester munchies, you need a big bag! The Louis Vuitton Neverfull is perfect for that, and being a canvas bag it is light enough to wear that it doesn't add to any of the pregnancy aches and pains. This set of photos proves why I invest in accessories too - they consistently work for you, no matter how many pregnancies you have or how big your belly gets. A definite must-have!

  1. A bag like that definitely deserved to be used over and over again and reduce your cost per wear while you're at it! Lol

  3. I love seeing you style thing bag numerous time. Although the bag is pricey (I can't believe how much the price went up!), it shows that it was worth the investment. A good luxury bag can go with any outfit! P.S. I love that red dress you wore!

  4. Always a clever post! Neverfull is one of the must have bags and never goes out of style. Nice to see how many times you've used it, I'm sure it's worth the money you've paid. I wish I can lower the cost per wear of my bags too haha. Been to the Royal Botanic garden today and it was an awesome day as it's a bit warm, I'm not ready for full-on Autumn yet. Wishing you a fun weekend with the boys.

  5. You sure have gotten your use out of this bag. Back in the day I want a LV bag but after seeing the cost. I went with 2 couch pursuing instead. Which both bags have done me great. Plus there pockets inside the bags.

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Hi Mica
    This price would be completely incomprehensible here in Portugal only for the very rich. The way I liked it most was with jeans. It is not even sold in the smallest cities of the country just in the capital Lisbon and OPorto. Life here is expensive and we earn very little. There are many Portuguese who are going to live in Australia. I have some old neighbors in Sidney. You always have many ideas to show us. I hope you have a great weekend.

  9. Sometimes I feel like if I had a time machine I'd use it for the most frivolous things, like going back to buy designer bags before inflation. I mean, pristine vintage designer bags for what would seem like nothing... But at least your investment in this bag has served you well and maybe someday you'll have a granddaughter to pass it on to (another weird thing I think about, investing in designer bags so non existent grand kids could have them).

    1. haha yes, they raise the prices so much, I often wonder if I had bought some bigger brands when they were more 'affordable' what my collection would be like now. I didn't have the earning power then though, haha! I'd love to pass my bag on eventually, if one of my boys doesn't want it maybe they will have a nice wife or girlfriend! :)

  10. This is a beautiful designer bag and I am impressed that you have worn over 100 times. It does make sense though as it is such a versatile bag. My favorite styles are with the tie-dye skirt when you are pregnant, with the red dress, and with the shorts and printed top. But every look is exceptional. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy some family time .

  35. With its commanding price tag, it's absolutely wonderful to obtain so much wear out of the LV Neverfull :P I think it's particularly brilliant to use it when pregnant. I had a friend who converted hers into a diaper bag (SMH, expensive diaper bag, I'll admit) and never looked bag LOL
