But if there’s one thing that I’ve learned, it’s that you don’t have to sacrifice style for budget. Want to learn how to find name brand clothing and accessories on a budget? All it takes is a little planning, patience, and time.

How to Find Name Brand Fashion on a Budget

Shop Thrift Stores: You’d be amazed at the name brand items that end up in second hand stores. A lot of times name brand clothing items aren’t even priced higher than other clothing. The trick: take time to browse! Walking into a thrift store can be overwhelming glancing at the isles and isles of unorganized merchandise. However, if you’re wanting to find those name brand items for super cheap, you’re going to have to take the time to look! If you don’t find name brand clothing or accessories on your first try, don’t give up. Return next the next week; a new week means new merchandise. When choosing thrift stores to frequent, browse your surrounding areas; second hand stores in nicer areas typically sell higher quality items, older areas make for more vintage finds, etc. Pay attention to thrift store sales; most stores offer 50% off on certain days during the week.

Shop Sales: If you’re not into the whole “second hand” scene, you can still find great deals on name brand fashion by shopping seasonal sales. DO YOUR RESEARCH; know when the store is having sales and don’t be afraid to buy off-season. When walking into a more expensive store – walk straight to the back. Most stores keep their “sale” items in the back of the store.

Shop Online: I love bargain hunting while in the comfort of my own home. Taking the time to browse the web for inexpensive finds truly pays off. Looking for an inexpensive website to purchase brand name accessories? You’ll be in heaven browsing Fifth &.
