How To Shop Smart For Luxury Products

We all want a piece of that luxury life, right? But it comes at a high price (obviously).
Everyone has had that moment where you MUST have a certain item, like the Saint Laurent bag that's the most fire thing you've seen. But sometimes you have to walk away and try to forget it (even though it haunts your dreams and is the background on your phone).
This post is to bring you the good news that it's all a bit more attainable than you might think, and there are four sites in particular that are doing an incredible job of serving up the luxury at a fraction of the price.
You don't even have to wait until sale time!

Of course, being smart about things, the sale season is always a smart way to shop luxury.
Sites like Net-A-Porter, Matches Fashion and Selfridges always have great discounts when the time comes. Outside of the major sale times (Summer and Winter sales) if you have your eye on a specific item, make sure to head over to ShopStyle and search for it on there. Smaller sites may have it on sale, or if you're not in a hurry you could even set a sale alert for when it does go on sale.

Sample sales are amazing but they always seem like something you hear about after they've happened, which is no fun. Cocosa is a flash sale site so the sales don't last for long, but you can download the app and get a notification every time a sale pops up. They cover a wide range of products including womenswear, menswear and home stuff too. Recently the sales on there have included Versace clothing and bathrobes, Moschino womenswear and Gucci shoes from the current season.

I'm always surprised when I mention The Outnet to people and they have no idea what it is. The Outnet is Net-A-Porter's online outlet and it's pretty incredible. They have all of the top brands and discounts can range from 30% off to 80%...I told you it was incredible. The Outnet even had an exclusive range with Charlotte Olympia recently.

If you're into luxury vintage items or you don't mind great condition pre-loved designer goods, then you might want to head over to Vestiaire Collective.
Vestiaire Collective is a site where you can buy and sell only very good condition designer items - it's like a high-end, trustworthy eBay. All items on the site once purchased will be sent to Vestiaire Collective to check that it's genuine and in the condition the seller said it was in, so you know you're in good hands.

Have you heard about of any of these sites? Would you use them?
