While we could easily stock our wardrobes with fast-fashion pieces, we can't deny the appeal of a few designer pieces mixed in. If a $2K handbag is a little outside the budget, that doesn't mean your closet has to be devoid of a special designer piece here and there. Whether it be a statement-making accessory or a high-quality pair of jeans, there are a plethora of gorgeous designer pieces on the market for less than $500. And we did our due diligence and found the best of the bunch for you, dear reader. Intrigued? Keep scrolling to shop our favorite designer pieces that won't put you in debt!
