It is expensive to be fashionable. One of the greatest angst is finding clothing that looks bohemian or broken in and yet does not cost a fortune. Designer streetwear from a brand name tends to match the look that the current market wants, but both the service of manipulating the fabric and putting a brand name on it tends to drive prices upwards.
The solution is to shop online. Not only does a website cut out the brick-and-mortar middleman, but it compares a number of similar brands that typically do not stand next to each other. See shirts and pants that might have been made in Europe but are technically overstock. These designer clothing eventually do go on discount because the artists who design them want to bring in next year’s selection. Snag a deal when it is right for you.
