4 Reasons Designer Clothes Are So Overrated

Don't get me wrong, I love all types of designer things. From bags and accessories to shoes and clothing, they're all beautiful. But for a casual gal like me, these are not necessary things.

4 Reasons Designer Clothes Are So Overrated

There are several luxury designers around the world. These are the ones I see the most on a daily basis. If you're anything like me, you will understand where I'm coming from when looking at all the prices and designs.

Michael Kors

Michael Kors will always be a fad. Of course, I've given in and purchased one before. Why I would ever buy a bag that expensive? That's 300 dollars down the drain. I could've bought a knock-off Michael Kors bag in New York City. Better yet, I could've gone to TJ Maxx and bought an even better one for $10. Sure I would look "rich" walking down the street with an expensive designer bag, but why not get a cheaper one that will serve the same purpose.

Gucci

Recently, designer shoes have been put in the spotlight. There are many songs that depict shoes as a luxury. There is even a song titled "Gucci Flip Flops". Seriously, who needs designer flip flops? I wear flip flops to the beach in the summer, and they are bound to get worn out. There is no reason to buy $210 on those when you can easily go to Old Navy and buy five pairs for five dollars! Yet, you will spot many people wearing their Gucci flip flops on Instagram. (Weird flex, but ok)

Louis Vuitton

Designer belts are trendy and all, but they are way out of an average person's price range. Louis Vuitton belts range anywhere between $300 to over $1,000. That is insane. I am completely fine ordering my belt off amazon or going to my closest Forever21 for $15. A belt is a belt, it was just made to hold your pants up!

Off-White

Trends. Trends. Trends. Everyone loves being trendy. I just discovered the brand Off-White recently when I saw several girls on Instagram posting pictures in their new belts. I thought it was caution tape wrapped around their waste. The average price for one of their belts is a little over $200. Even though this brand seems to be up and coming, I don't see what the hype is all about.

Versace

Another brand that is featured in a popular song is Versace. This high-class brand has always been popular. I was in New York City a few years back when I walked into their store, I felt the employee's eyes following me. It's expensive stuff, they have to keep an eye out, and I don't blame them! On their site, the cheapest women's top I found was $665. I'm not sure about you but I'm pretty sure I don't have that type of money for a t-shirt.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
