Everyone likes to look good and there are some excellent budget-friendly brands available on the market. Despite this, there is nothing like being able to hit the trendiest night club or that Michelin Star restaurant in a swanky designer outfit. Looking like you just descended from the catwalk in the latest creation of a top designer sure makes a statement.
Women’s designer clothes are a luxury that most people cannot afford and certainly not for everyday wear. Some people are aware that if you cannot afford a wardrobe of haute couture, made to measure and exclusive labels, you just buy a few classic pieces and make the most of them. This is somewhat limited and so there are ways of acquiring those much sought after designer labels at knock down prices.
Internet auction sites are an excellent place to find women’s designer clothes at bargain prices. You need to take care though because the listings on auction sites include used items as well as new ones. You can pick up brand new items of designer label clothes at excellent prices and if you are prepared to buy second-hand, your choice is massively increased. There is a major caveat to products on auction sites and this applies whether it is the largest site in the world or smaller localised sites. There is a massive trade in fake designer goods and as much as the site owners try and stop the fraudulent items, the problem persists. If you are going to buy using this method, ensure you know exactly what features you are looking for to verify the authenticity of the items you want to buy.
Another place to find great bargains in women’s designer clothes is at retail outlets. Usually located out of town, the fashion shops on retail outlet parks tend to have high-end label goods that are seconds, rejects or last season’s collections. There tends to be more choice from low-level designers than those of the fashion world glitterati but if you want something different to what is available on the High Street, this is a good place to start looking.
Not the most accessible but a terrific way of getting your hands on some totally unique items of high fashion is to buy from sample sales. If you are lucky to live in a city where fashion designers are located, contact the designers and asked to be put on the mailing list for when they hold such sales. Samples are generally one-offs so you can pretty much guarantee you will have something that no-one of your girlfriends will be wearing but of course it is going to be pot luck as to whether you find something that fits.
Charity shops are another option to find designer label clothes – again you have to be prepared to wear second-hand although of course, there is always the odd chance that you will happen to find that treasured piece with original price tags still intact.
Naturally, you also need to be on the lookout for the perfect pair of shoes or designer bag to complement your new outfit.
