I love a little luxury. I mean, who doesn’t? We all deserve a treat every now and then, and with a luxury brand, you are also getting something which is going to last a little longer. I am all about paying a little more for something durable and long-lasting and saving money in the long run by doing so.
Many new designer brands are now delving into the world of streetwear-inspired clothing. Luxury clothing is not what it once was, and the luxury clothing world is becoming more about a way of life, a way to make an impact, rather than being focused on price.
Niche and online brands have been making an impact in luxury clothing, and it is evident that they are here to stay.
No longer are premium fashion brands the say all and end all; affordable luxury now accounts for a large share of the luxury clothing market.
We love fashion, we love luxury, and we also love affordability. Here are some of the best luxuriously affordable brands out there.
