Despite these two opposites, more and more women are having an increased amount of disposable income as they become more affluent and independent, and every now and then are able to treat themselves to something with a bigger price tag and believe they deserve to splash the cash when they feel the need.
As designer fashion is rather expensive, most women cant afford to have a wardrobe full of couture pieces but a sensible shopper can have a few key pieces in their wardrobe as long as they can justify the price spent on them. If youre used to high street shopping and checking price tags then designer clothing can be rather intimidating. The key to designer fashion shopping is to know what youre looking for and when you should spend your money to get the most designer clothing for your budget.
This probably the most important thing to remember with designer clothing; always buy with versatility in mind. Make sure its a good addition to your wardrobe and wont age easily, otherwise you wont get much wear out of it.
If you love the idea of designer clothing but not the price tag why not check out charity shops? There are some amazing bargains to be found and some charities even have shops specifically for designer pieces, and whats more is that youll also be giving to charity!

Its so easy to change your look with some fashion accessories like a bag, jewellery or a scarf. When buying designer accessories only choose an item that youve really fallen for and that will really make a different. Accessories are so cheap on the high street so make this one area that you really think about.

If youre thinking along the lines of getting the most for your money and the long term investment then its a good idea to buy a signature piece of designer clothing. Many designers produce key pieces and if you invest in one of these then youll be able to sell it on in the future. But dont buy something for the sake of it; you really need to like it as well.
So those are the items of designer pieces you should look out for and consider buying if youre looking to add…
