This is a guest post by Jane Hunt. Jane is an offline fashion writer. She focuses on fashion that is not only affordable for Paris Hilton. On her site she shows the best deals at the online BCBG outlet store and shows discounts from hanes outlets.
A never ending story… Shall I spend $150 on that beautiful dress or do I buy three less expensive dresses for $50 each? Do I buy my clothes when they are hot or when the the hype is over?
There are a few ways you can save money shopping while still being fashionable:
- Many local stores have a discount area. You can usually get 20% up to 70% discount.
- Find look-a-like products (not illegal replica’s!). You can be amazed at how much two products from different brands can have resemblance.
- Look for B-brand products. There are very fashionable designs by less known brands. You don’t have to wear Gucci to be fashionable.
- Ones of the best options you have is visiting specific outlet stores which can be divided into two categories. The first type sells products (overstock) that were hot last year. The second type of store sells products that are damaged or have a fabrication error. For fashion this usually means you have a misprint or a knit that´s not in a perfect straight line. These outlet stores can be found both online and offline.
Let’s have a look at three great examples that are not expensive, but still fashionable!
Chain accented fashion handbag – look-a-like products
These very fashionable handbags come into two colors cream and pink. Sold for only $29.95. This is not an exact replica of a known brand, that would be illegal.
BCBG Max Azria Larah Low Heel Elastic Sandal – Discount
A perfect example of a famous brand that’s sold at a discount. A stunning 70% discount from $185 down to $53.97
Brandless Cowl Front T
Sold for just $34.50. Although the finishing is not as subtle as most brands would finish it this shirt is still beautiful. Available in 4 colors.
These 3 examples should give you a good idea of what you can buy without spending a fortune. The options are limitless for being fashionable on a budget.
