Designer clothes are what the rich prefer to wear. Wealthy Americans splurged on designer clothing in the holiday season. High end department stores like Saks, Nieman Marcus, and Nordstorm all reported high 'holiday' sales compared to the previous season. MasterCard Advisors' Spending Pulse reported an eight percent plus spike in luxury spending. Designer clothing is an indulgence which requires money, so understanding it can help you buy this kind of apparel according to your needs, not desires.
Designer clothing is the term used to refer to clothing which has the logo of a well known fashion designer. Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren are all well known designers.
They may allow their logo to be displayed on clothing items manufactured by a licensee. This agreement allows the manufacturer to sell the apparel at a higher price, because customers attach value to the designer's name being associated with these clothes.
The designer benefits monetarily from this arrangement. The terms of the agreement can vary, from a limit on the number of styles of garments which the manufacturer can produce, to the designer's ability to veto designs they find unsatisfactory.
Designer labels are a suitable option for professionals to wear at work. Avoid heavily logoed clothing though. Choose well made clothes that do not have obvious designer labels so that you look business like.
You need not spend immense amounts of money on designer clothing every season to get a new look. Mix and match your clothes with a few new ones to create unique looks.
Designers themselves often mix separates on the runways, so observe and use their techniques for creating varied looks.
You could mix luxury items with ones that are more modern. Try wearing an evening top with your favorite pair of blue jeans.
Celebrities wear designer clothing for red carpet events like award ceremonies. You can take cues from them if you like any particular item.
Designers often favor particular colors for the season. Many prefer to use pastel colors in their spring collections. Choosing colors which highlight your complexion can help you look vibrant.
