The Six Best Places for Discount Designer Clothes and Accessories–Secret Sales and Private Sales

We’re always on the look-out for cheap (or cheaper) designer clothes, handbags and shoes that fit both budget and style and of the online boutiques, permanent discount designer clothes outlets and secret sales websites these are my six favourites to explore regularly. You’ll find them all together in one place (plus more) at too.

The winter sales may still be going strong but there’s that feeling, even in the midst of some seriously cold weather, of new arrivals in the stores and particularly online where it’s so much easier to have an uninterrupted view of what’s available, sale or otherwise. My advice when browsing these treasure troves is to invest in pieces that you believe will have a long lifetime in your wardrobe, rather than impulse buy lots of small items and if you can pick up that Marc Jacobs bag, pair of Louboutin heels or Diane von Furstenberg dress for less that you’ve already spotted and lusted after; so much the better.

The Six Best Places are:
Brand Alley – Currently: Replay, John Smedley, Vivienne Westwood Sunglasses – Coming Up: French Connection Jewellery, Chloe Bags and Accessories.
Secret Sales – Currently: Oakley Sunglasses, Miss Sixty, Yummie Tummie – Coming Up: Calico Jewellery, Zeades Accessories
Cocosa – Currently: Halston Heritage, The Bohm Jewellery – Coming Up: Paige Premium Denim, John Smedley
Vente-Privee – Currently: Oakwood Leather – Coming Up: Karl Largerfeld
The Outnet – Just In: Moschino, Proenza Schouler, Sergio Rossi, Donna Karan, Chloe
