3 Tips To Scoring High Fashion On A Low Budget 

As a fashionista, there’s almost nothing more exciting than having that latest luxury item swinging from your shoulder or wrapped around your body. Whether it’s Gucci, Louis, Prada or any other, these brands are synonymous with class, luxury and high-fashion, and they’re sought after by many women around the world. However, not everyone has the deep pockets to afford such items, with prices often reaching into the thousands — Louis Vuitton’s total revenue for 2016 in fact, was about 37.6 billion Euros which is equivalent to roughly $43.8 billion. If you’re on a low budget but can’t get enough of high fashion, then take a look at these tips to get your hands on some of those must-have luxury items. 

Bridge Lines 

Affordable brands have been teaming up with some of our favorite high end labels to create fashion lines that not only reflect the style and luxury of Fifth Avenue, but are also accessible to a lot more people. H&M has been a leader in such collaborations, starting bridge lines in 2004 and since seeing success with brands such as Balmain, Stella McCartney, Versace and Alexander Wang. Some of these lines had prices that didn’t exceed $149, making it possible for people with modest incomes to afford the quality and glamour that designer labels have to offer. Target as well tried a similar idea, with the popularity of their partnership with Missoni causing their site to crash. Try keeping up with the launches of some of these collaborations through social media and their websites, they often promote heavily before launches and then you’ll have the best chance of getting your hand on some gorgeous designs. 

Cut Down On Other Costs 

It may be no surprise but for those without endless supplies of disposable income, buying designer labels can take a big chunk out of your spending money. Therefore, in order to compensate for this luxury shopping and afford the items you really like, try cutting down on extra expenses elsewhere. Whether it’s conserving energy at home so that your bills are cut down, or getting a feature-packed yet affordable smartphone like the iPhone SE along with a plan that doesn’t have a bunch of extra charges all the time — little changes here and there can make a huge difference to your bank account on a regular basis, and will mean that you have more flexibility to shower yourself with all the shopping you desire. 

Be Creative With Where You Shop 

While designer labels have an aura of exclusivity, if you do your research and shop around, you’ll likely find some great deals that can save you a ton of money in the long run. While many designer labels like Louis Vuitton do not in fact have outlet stores, department store like Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue, have huge sales yearly as well as permanent outlet stores across the country. You’ll often find a wide selection of brands at these department stores, and the discount will make the extra effort all that more worth it. Thrift stores are also a great way to get your hands on some classic gems, and you don’t pay anywhere near retail price. You may even find something vintage that could end up being more special than something in this year’s line. 

Luxury fashion brands and the style and class they possess are on the minds of many fashion-forward women. However, they also come at a price that not everyone can afford so try out these tips to own some designer brands for yourself without breaking the bank.
