Designer Fashion Without Breaking the Bank

Shopping at high-end fashion stores is something that everybody would like to do. The only problem with that not everyone has the bankroll to buy designer brands. There are, however, ways to get your hands on designer items without going hungry. Keep reading to learn more.

Shop Around--

Shopping at vintage stores or second-hand stores sometimes have bargains that are unbelievably low.  Vintage stores generally have clothing that can date all the way back to the 1960’s while second-hand stores’ merchandise is more recent. Shopping at vintage stores can help you find affordable pieces that probably doesn’t exist anywhere else.

When you shop at these places, make sure that you know your size and be prepared to take some of the items to your tailor for adjustments. Make sure, however, that the clothes fit where it can’t be adjusted like your shoulders.

Go Online--

There are awesome websites for consignment and resale. There are also a select few sites that offer products like affordable diamond watches. You can also go on eBay or other auction sites to find designer fashion products. When buying from these sellers, make sure that they have money protection and look at their reviews. If they have low reviews, stay away from them. If you buy from higher rated sellers, you will probably not encounter problems with low-quality material or blemishes. If you do get spots or blemishes, a dry cleaner will probably be able to help you get rid of it.


You can match a versatile designer piece with more clothes, giving you more bang for your buck. If you buy overly unique or exotic clothing, they will not only be difficult to wear with your other clothes, but you won’t be able to wear it often. The same goes for designer accessories like watches, hats, or sunglasses.

Charity Shops--

When you visit charity shops, chances are you’ll stumble upon high-quality, affordable designer pieces. When it comes to charity shops, location is key. When you visit charity shops in well-to-do areas, you increase your chances of digging up something worthwhile.

When you find something that is supposed to be a part of an outfit like a suit, see if you can find the other pieces. For example, don’t take a pair of pant and expect to match it with a different blazer. The colors and textures won’t match and it will not look good.

Shop the Sales--

This one is kind of obvious, but if you stay up to date on sales and make sure that you get to the store early, you may find some of the best buys out there. The key is to prepare. Make a list of all the items that you need and don’t buy items that you already have or don’t need. Stick to colors that you already wear to make it easier to match with other outfits.

Avoid any exotic or trendy items. You may see them everywhere, but there will come a time when the item will be a thing of the past. Stick to basic items.

Buying designer fashion doesn’t have to be financially draining. When you stop minding second hand wear, you may be surprised to see how easy it can be when you proactively search for the good deals.
