Tips on How to Get Celebrity Designer Style for Less

As a beauty blogger one of the questions I get alot is how to get free designer clothes.

So I thought I would share with you some ways of doing this when your on a shoe string budget. It is not for everyone but it is an option.

Fashionistas have to get really creative now a days because of the slow economy and limit shopping budgets.

Bartering is the new money and works really well for me. It can work for men, women and childrens clothes.

You do not have to look like you do not have any money, believe me you can still look absolutely fabulous for less. Proof of this is seen everyday on television especially reality TV.

Just make sure that you do not fall for the many imposter's and fake designer labels being sold on the web.

De-clutter and Organize Closets for the Wealthy

The first thing you can do is to offer a closet clutter free service in your city or town. Many times people have too many clothes and not enough space for it.

So pass out flyers or run a small classified ad and offer to clean and de-clutter their closet or garage for free.

Now this option will work best if you do it in a very expensive area, which means the homeowners are high net worth and spend lots of money on designer clothes.

Run an ad and connect with those who have retired from well paying careers they will be glad you want to help them out.

Start a Clothes Barter Club

Second idea is to get some shopaholics together and trade fashion clothes and shoes at home parties.

The easiest way to do this is to start a shopping interest group on sites like meetup.com and find other girls in your town who love to shop.

Members who join your group must bring with them one of their favorite designer shoes or apparel to the get together.

Then when everyone shows up they can trade it for someone else's fab fashion accessory. Some people may even still have items with the tag still on them.

Menswear Club

The great thing about getting designer clothes for men is that most of the pieces are interchangeable.

Despite the fact that Menswear is expensive the thread count and the type of fabric in mens shirts, slacks or suits can last literally for years and years.

Some popular mens fashion brands include: Ralph Lauren, Diesel, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Burberry Prorsum, Hugo Boss, and Armani.

Start your own swapping party, you can also check out online swapping as well.

Get Free Clothes as a Personal Shopper

Are you good at coordinating outfits, do you know what looks good for formal, casual and business attire?

If so you can help others look the best they can look. You may not realize how much style you have naturally.

Become a image consultant

It is fun and a great way to meet new people and at the same time you get free designer clothes.

So many people need some designer style trend tips and you can help them pick out the right looks for themselves from their own closet or be their personal shopper.

Instead of charging a fee you can just get a free designer outfit for your services. Let your clients know ahead of time what your expecting from them.

Once you start looking at how your skills and talents are valuable then you can see new ways of getting the celebrity style you want most.

Helping Non-Profit Organizations

You can partner up with a non-profit organization and tell them that you would like to help them raise money for a cause. Charity events are always needing extra hands to help.

Organize a Clothes Fund Raiser

Helping organizations in your community can be a great way to get designer clothes for free.

The reason this works so well is because most non-profit organizations need ways to raise money to keep offering free services.

Become a fashion advocate and ask for donations of designer apparel from those who want get a tax write off and help at the same time.

Then as the organizer of the event you can pick out some of the clothes, handbags or shoes to keep. The rest you can sell online or at yard sales all the money you receive will be given to your favorite charity.

It can be a city by city project that allows you to travel, wear celebrity designer clothes and help people at the same time. Try including stay at home moms who like to organize small events with online meetups.

Vintage Baby Clothes

Childrens and Toddler clothes usually are still in new condition due to the fact that many kids grow out of their clothes before they have a chance to wear out. Designer baby clothes are made from the best material and can be used on boys and girls.

Moms can have house parties where they swap or trade gently worn designer childrens clothing. Most of the times the two piece outfits have been washed in Ivory Snow or Dreft which keeps the colors bright and the fabric soft without fading.
