How to Get Expensive Designer Clothing for Cheaper Prices

Updated on January 20, 2013

It doesn’t matter whether we are trying to make an impression on the job or get noticed on a big night out, one of the best ways to stand out in the crowds is with expensive designer clothing. The names on the label can often say more about you than anything else that you do. There is no denying that people look at you differently when the clothes you wear are from a big name designer, with the general impression being that you are successful at whatever you do. The reason they feel that way is because designer clothes don’t come cheap, which basically means you must have a great deal of disposable income if your wardrobe is packed full of expensive designer clothing.

If you’d love to dress for success, but don’t really have the financial means to do so, then you are in luck. There are a few ways to get designer duds for a cheap price, and it’s all just a matter of knowing where to look. Here are a few places where you might be able to dress like a million bucks for a good deal less.

1. Outlet Malls - If you live in or around a major city, chances are you will have at least one outlet mall at your disposal. These malls are filled with designer stores that offer their products at as much as 50-75% below regular retail prices. Don’t let the cheap prices fool you, everything that is for sale is from the designer, but may just have been made in smaller batches or is about to go out of season. The amounts are limited, so if you see a piece that you like, make sure to grab it right away, as chances are it will be gone the next time you visit.

2. Online - The problem with buying expensive designer clothes at most retail outlets is because they are forced to jack up the prices in order to cover costs. Monthly store bills and employee salaries are all somehow rolled into the final price that you pay for that designer dress or great looking suit. Online stores do not have the overheads associated with regular retail stores, which means their prices tend to be a good deal less than what you would find anywhere else.

3. Second Hand - There are a number of consignment and gently used stores that have designer labels lining their racks. Of course, you don’t even have to leave the house to get your hands on used designer clothing, with auction sites like Ebay filled with clothing that is as good as new. If you do decide to go that route, make sure to read the descriptions and take a good look at the pictures that are posted. Sure, you may be paying cheap prices for the designer clothes, but second hands shouldn’t mean settling for second best.
