Designer clothes and accessories are extremely expensive and can seem out of reach to the average consumer. However, the average consumer can snag the designer items if they follow this plan.
How To Afford Designer Fashion
1. Do not splurge! You might decide hey I can just put this on a credit card and pay it off as I go. Not a good idea before you know it you’ll be headed down a rabbit hole of debt you can’t climb out of.
2. Use the envelope method. What I do is label a few envelopes with the items I’m saving up for and the amount I need. Then as I get some spare cash I just tuck it into the envelope. Once I have enough I’m able to snag the item I want guilt free. You can also do this by setting up a separate savings account with your bank that you add money too if you’d like.
3. What if I want something that is going to sell out? Easy you’ll just need an envelope that you stash money in for this exact reason.
4. Buy more accessories than clothing. You will get more use out of accessories over clothing. Clothing tends to go out of style faster than accessories, unless, you’re buying a classic staple piece for your wardrobe like an “LBD” or a blazer.
6. Buy used. Keep an eye out on designer consignment sites and stores you never know when you might be able to snag that item a little early at a discounted price. Just be careful not to buy a knockoff make sure you are purchasing from a reputable source.
Just remember even though it might take a while (it took me a year to save up for my Louboutin’s) you’ll be completely debt free.
