Fashion can be expensive. And if you are looking to snag something high-end or designer, it can eat into your budget. But what if you didn’t have to break the bank?

When it comes to being fashionistas, we want to find the best pieces, the newest designs, and of course high-end products that look amazing. We love designer fashion, and if we can get our hands on everything from handbags and accessories, to stunning dresses and amazing tops, then we are all in.

The problem is that designer stuff can get very expensive, especially if you are looking for something specific. And if you want something from a designer like Louis Vuitton, Prada, or Gucci (among others), then you know that you are likely going to drop a pretty penny.

However, did you know that there are actually plenty of ways to add designer fashion to your closet without actually breaking the bank? That’s right, high-end pieces really can be more affordable than you think. And while you may not be able to grab that designer piece for $10, we don’t believe paying full price is a necessity either.

Not only are there apps like Poshmark and Mercari out there that allow you to pick up gently used pieces, but there are actually a number of options if you want items that are brand new. In fact, even Poshmark sometimes has incredible deals on items that are new with tags, all you have to do is look. And since the app will authenticate high-end products over $500, you can definitely find some great deals if you try hard enough.

With these great stores and options, you can give your wardrobe a designer makeover without going broke. And we think this might be the perfect way to live up to the fashionista name. Just remember that even though many of these designers are still costing a bit more than the average brand, because they are at such amazing discounts, things do sell out fast. So, if there is a piece you absolutely have to have, grab it while you can.
