How to get cheap designer clothes

Fashion trends come and go like London's fog, so for fashionistas on a budget, finding designer label bargains is the only way that they can keep up with those trends. There are a number of ways to find cheap designer clothing in brand name items from Polo shorts to Lauren shoes.

Online venues

Online venues make it easy to purchase cheap labels. Many clothing designers offer great bargains and discount coupons via their websites, so it's always a good idea to check before purchasing directly from the brick and mortar outlet. It's also a good idea to get on those mailing lists, so you're always in the loop for those discounts. Ebay is always a good place to look for cheap designer clothing, but check the listings well so that you know whether or not the item is slightly worn, new with tags, and of a size that will fit. Consider the shipping cost into the total price. Sometimes, a good eBay deal, may not be so good once the shipping fee is added.

Factory outlets

There are factory outlets for designer fashions all over Britain and Europe. In the UK, buyers can find outlets for most popular and sought-after labels like Burberry, Levis or The Gap. You could sign up at ShoppingVillages.com or TheFactoryShopGuide.com to be put on their mailing lists to stay on top of upcoming sales, discounts offered and factory outlet locations. Shoppers can often find bargains with up to 60% off the original price. Finding those deals is simply a matter of knowing where to look and having the information at hand. For the best deals in France, have a look at LaValleeVillage.com. At this outlet, shoppers can expect to find discounts of up to 33% off. McarthurGlen.fr is the online website of another large outlet in France offering huge discounts of the previous season's fashions.

Charity shops

High Street charity shops are an ideal place to find cheap designer clothing. Today's charity shops aren't like the second-hand clothing shops of the past. The stores are clean and tidy and only the best items are placed on the sales floor. Buyers will find any number of designer clothes at incredibly low prices. The items may have been worn, but they are generally in like-new condition. Thrift-shopping for clothes has become a hip thing to do as well as a great way to recycle. It's not difficult to find cheap clothing designs, but serious buyers should learn to think outside the box. Find those discounts by searching online via the designer's online presence. Add your name to mailing lists and reap those rewards by being fashionable and doing it on the cheap.
