Designer Clothes Without High Prices? Count Yourself In

Is it possible to shop for designer clothes and accessories without busting your bank account? Well, it all depends on where you look. During the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone has become more financially conscious; whether you lost your job, entered into a furlough scheme, kept your job from home or somewhere in between, it has been a tough year for everyone. During quarantine, everyone slouched around their houses in their pajamas, with no need for fancy clothes or expensive watches. But now the world is re-opening. Can you keep up?

In the intersection between financial responsibility and buying luxury items lies a compromise. No, you can’t afford for every single item of clothing you buy to be Tommy Hilfiger or Ralph Lauren. But you don’t also have to live that Target clothing life either. There’s a middle ground between acting like Kanye West and living like a bargain hunter. So how can we achieve it?

Searching For Deals

Just like anything in life, there are gems to be found if you look hard enough. Designers will have you believe you should only be buying full-price items from the actual store, but this is simply untrue. For example, current Rolex prices from outlet stores and last season’s designs are much less hair-raising than an in-store price. That doesn’t mean the Rolex isn’t real, it just means you aren’t buying the latest edition of the watch. Simple.

The COVID-19 Effect

It isn’t only individuals who are having to tighten their purse strings this year. All around the world, companies are going into liquidation, suffering at the hands of this pandemic just like the rest of us. The companies who are clinging on for dear life are having to make sacrifices too - in the form of delicious deals for all of us. COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on all our lives, but the flip side of this crisis is that prices are beginning to drop. You could bag that pair of trainers you’ve been eyeing up all year after all!

Returning To Work

We all became pretty accustomed to working at home this year, so now that some offices are reopening, it can come as a shock to the system. If you are returning to your old normality, you might be nervous about maintaining a good impression after not having seen your colleagues and bosses in some time. A statement piece such as a new pair of shoes, cufflinks, watch or bag could announce your re-entry into the workplace with a bang.

Similarly, job retention has never been more important than now. Everything you do should be memorable and impressive if you want to keep your hands on the role you currently have at work. Making a statement and taking work seriously means dressing like the man you want to be.


Although appearances aren’t everything, you can have your cake and eat it when it comes to looking sharp. All it takes is careful planning, some sneaky deal-finding, and dedication to looking sharp, even during a pandemic.
