Buy Second-Hand Clothes
Buying second-hand clothes may not sound like the most luxurious thing to do, but it as a brilliant way to save money and still dress in designer brands. Just because something is second-hand does not mean it is not of a high quality. Many people buy clothes, try them on, realize they do not fit, and then sell them, as they can not return them to the store they bought them from. Likewise, some people get clothes as gifts, and they might not like them, so sell them. The point is, you can find lots of cheap designer clothes on places like Ebay or Depop that are barely used and still look great. Sometimes, they may even have the tag on too! So, if you are looking for a really expensive item of clothing and cannot afford its store price, take a look online for anyone selling it at a much lower price. This is a great tactic for anyone that wants to be super frugal and keep to a strict clothes budget.

Shop At Department Stores
Department stores are a great place to get fancy designer brands without having to pay too much for them. Not only that, but they are brilliant for anyone that does not have any designer shops around them. A department store like Neiman Marcus sells dozens of stuff from some of the top brands in the world, all in one place. Plus, they have websites too, which make things even easier. In fact, their websites can be the best place to shop as they often have sales or special offers on designer brands that are not available in-store. For example, you could get a Neiman Marcus coupon online, but not in an actual store. Either way, shop in department stores as the brands are generally cheaper even without the added discounts. When you add the discounts on top, then you have some seriously good deals on your hands.

Buy Out-Of-Season Clothes
The final tip is so simple, and yet so many people do not know about it. If you are tuned into fashion, you will know that big designer brands release collections based on seasons. There are Autumn/Winter collections, then ones for Spring/Summer too. This happens every year and the previous year’s collections are still on sale in some places for a discounted price. So, buy older clothes instead of getting the new stuff, no one will notice or care, not everyone is fully tuned into fashion. But, another tip is to buy out-of-season clothes when they are cheap. For example, get all your summer clothes in the winter, and vice versa. You will have a nice stockpile to wear when the right time comes around and it will all be designer and cheap.
With this advice, you can start buying designer clothes without worrying so much about your bank balance for once!
