29 Relatively Affordable Items I'd Buy From Designer Brands

At times like these, it can be hard to fathom spending a lot of money on designer fashion items. But in case you are in the mood for a little pick-me-up, I got you. When I purchase designer items, they're rarely big-ticket ones, unless it's a bag or pair of shoes that I know I'll wear forever and have saved up for. Most of the designer items I own are more along the lines of hair accessories, scarfs, T-shirts, socks, belts—little pieces that make a big impact on my outfits but not on my bank account.

Believe it or not, even brands like Gucci, Chanel (in the form of a hand cream, but it's a chic one!), Fendi, and Versace have cheap-ish items (relatively speaking, of course). There are key chains, sunglasses, wallets, slippers, and even some shoes that are guaranteed to amplify your wardrobe. (And just wait until you see the Loewe candle that I can't stop thinking about.) Scroll to shop them all—starting at $50.
