Summer is coming and it is time to get out into the sunshine. You have got your light flowing and flowery summer dress, and your cute as can be strappy summer sandals, but no outfit is complete without those awesome sunglasses. Whether for protecting your eyes or protecting your fashion-conscious image, sunglasses are the ultimate accessory for any summer outfit. You have been saving up all season for the perfect pair of designer shades. Wayfarer, wrap, rimless or round, this essential summer accessory does not have to rob you of all your summer job earnings. If you do a little bit of research and shop smart, you can get the same designer brands that you dream of at a fraction of the price. With just a little bit of know-how, those discount designer sunglasses can be yours.
Of course, the first place to go when looking for deep discounts is the internet. Online outlet stores for sunglasses enjoy savings by doing business over the internet, and those savings are passed on to the buyer. Oftentimes, the prices of designer sunglasses can be up to 70% off what they would retail for at a brick and mortar store. These are the exact same designer sunglasses you might find at a mall but with a price tag that has been slashed in half (or more). As an extra bonus, many online retailers offer free shipping on larger orders and often forgo state sales taxes.
Another place to look for discounts on designer glasses is at outlet stores and malls. Most major outlet malls have sunglasses stores that carry brands like Dior, Ray-Ban, and Oakley. Outlet stores carry the product that is slightly irregular or out of season. Most flaws will be barely noticeable as they still have to adhere to the high standards of the designer to make it to the shelves. This option is perfect for the shopper that just has to have the brand, regardless of the season.
Finally, if you just have to have that certain style, be sure to check resale shops and online classified ads. There are resale shops that cater to gently used designer brands and deal in both clothing and accessories. It might take a little bit of hunting, but it will pay off in your savings. Frequent your local shops and make friends with the shop owner. If they don’t have what you are looking for, describe exactly what you need and ask them to let you know if anyone brings in your dream sunglasses. A good shop owner will be happy to tell you if something come in. Online classified ads can be a great way to save money and find discount designer sunglasses as well. Most online classifieds have a clothing or accessories section, and searching online is a lot easier than rummaging through piles in real life. If you are looking for something specific, you can even post something in the “wanted” section. Resale stores and online classified ads are a great way to find vintage designer sunglasses.
New or used there is no reason to pay top dollar for designer sunglasses. With a little bit of patience, know-how and maybe even a little bit of good luck, you can find that perfect pair of shades and be styling for summer.
