How to Get Designer Looks for Less

Finding Designer Deals
Having a few classic high-quality designer basics is a great foundation for creating a polished and stylish wardrobe. For example, it’s worth investing in a nice pair of designer jeans, a versatile coat, timeless slacks, and a couple blouses. These pieces should be timeless, functional, and versatile. Don’t waste your money on trendy or flashy pieces because they will go out of style quicker and won’t be as functional in the long run.
Of course, high-quality designer pieces can be pricey. You don’t have to buy all your fundamental designer pieces at once though. So, take you time and look for deals. You can often find designer discounts at stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Nordstrom Rack. Look online too. I’ve found huge designer discounts at online stores such as Amazon, eBay, and The Denim Shop. And of course, don’t forget to check the second-hand stores – you never know what treasures you might find!
Once you have some high-quality basic pieces to work with, you can start getting creative. Look for dirt-cheap deals on accessories that will work with what you already have. Forever 21 is just one place with inexpensive jewelry and accessories. You can also repurpose outdated items in your closet. Rather than throwing away an old scarf, think about other ways you might be able to wear it. Pull out your old jewelry to add some vintage flare to your outfit. Also, don’t be afraid to shop for clothes at stores such as Walmart or Kmart. An inexpensive top paired with a nice blazer or well-fitted jeans can look trendy and elegant!
By skillfully combining inexpensive pieces with quality designer basics, you can achieve a polished look that will have everyone envious of your great style! If you don’t think you have a natural eye for creating stylish outfits, flip through a few fashion magazines or browse the web for ideas and inspirations. I’ve found that there is a cheaper alternative for every designer look – you just have to search for it. Have fun with it!
