7 Places to Shop Designer Pieces, Without the Designer Price Tags

Elinor Block

Discount shopping sites haven't always had the best reputation, but the truth is that a handful of incredible online places to discover fabulous designer bargains do exist in 2017. Being committed shopping fiends, we've learnt a thing or two about hunting down pitch-perfect cut-price fashion because our wallets—and the rising cost of rent—demand it.

Essentially, our love of discount shopping was borne out of necessity—but also, who doesn't enjoy the thrill of finding something new with a brag-worthy price tag? From sites you might already know about (e.g., ASOS or The Outnet) to more under-the-radar places such as Yoox, we bring you the best affordable designer websites that will stock your wardrobe with the chicest pieces.

The Outnet

From the family of Net-a-Porter, The Outnet is every fashion lover's worst-kept secret. It is regularly updated with the biggest designer labels, from Stella McCartney to Dolce & Gabbana. While the prices are still not high street, it has major discounts for the most luxury brands in the world. Nab a chic Chloé top for half price, which saves you more than £1000. Incredible.

Get the label

Want to find classics or basics without having to fork out a tonne of money? You'll find Levi's 501s, vintage-style sports pieces and chic white trainers (that you know you'll wear with everything) on this site. It's also important to note that this online discount store is a great place to shop actual athletic gear, from swim pieces to running shoes.

T.K. Maxx

T.K. Maxx has been around for some time now, but it's one of those places that always requires quite a bit of rummaging (we have the five golden rules on how to shop in T.K. Maxx if you ever get truly stuck). But you don't have to shop in the physical location; you can also head to the website to pick up exceptional bargains. From an Iro jacket that now costs £100 (when it used to be £280), as well as a pair of jeans from J Brand that cost a mere £40 saving you £190, you'll struggle not to find a fantastic discount. Just remember, if you're shopping designer, click on the Gold Label section, and keep in mind that they don't hang around for long…

 

YOOX

We can never have enough places to shop discounted designer goods. The Italian e-commerce giant Yoox, which is a part of the Net-a-Porter family, offers up a range of past-season luxury lines (as well as the new collections), so you can get a chic Prada bag for £300 less than its original price, a Vivienne Westwood blazer for £100 cheaper, and a pair of Giambattista Valli boots for £221 when they used to be £400 more. There's often a chance to get extra percentages off these existing discounts—so we'd recommend signing up for its newsletters.

 

Gilt

If there's one place to hunt out a bargain designer handbag, then it's Gilt. The site is full of plenty of other discounts, but the most pleasure you'll get from shopping here is seeing a Tom Ford bag reduced by £1000, a vintage Louis Vuitton bag on offer, plus the fashion favourite M2Malletier Amor Fati Small Shoulder Bag reduced to £828 from £1672.

 

Secret Sales

Don't let the fact that you have to sign up to this one put you off. Honestly, the discounts are all worth it. Secret Sales is also brilliant because you can sign up to the newsletter, so you'll get blasts on brands that you really want to know about. Of course, you can just go straight to the website and find various incredible deals. We've got our eye on a discounted Miu Miu bag that has 20% off (down from £790 to £625), Gianvito Rossi sandals that are now £339 (was £470) and a pair of Burberry sunglasses that now cost £109 but used to be £175.
