Whether you're just getting into designer brands or have a friend/sibling/cousin who's really into them, it really helps to have a starter guide! You can either use this for yourself throughout the year or around this season if you're having trouble gift shopping for that one person who would love something on this list. Items are organized by how much you're willing and/or able to spend.
If your price limit is between $100 and $300...
1. Armani sweatshirt
Armani Sweatshirt, $172Buy this item here
Athleisure has been really popular lately, and Emporio Armani offers really stylish athletic wear. They're perfect for people that are fans of the Calvin Klein pieces but want something slightly different.
2. Rebecca Minkoff purse
Rebecca Minkoff purse, $195Buy this item here
If you've never heard of Rebecca Minkoff purses, they're similar to Micheal Kors ones in the way that they have the look of the more expensive brands without you having to spend that much. This one is $195 and has impressive leather and hardware.
3. Tory Burch flats
Tory Burch flats, $228 Buy this item here
Tory Burch is a great choice for your first designer shoe because they're comfortable and beautiful without being too expensive. The awesome thing about Tory Burch is that they hold sales multiple times throughout the year. It's best to get them in a neutral color rather than a bright one if you can only buy one pair at a time because a shade like black can go with anything.
4. Salvatore Ferragamo bracelet
Ferragamo Gancini Bracelet, $160Buy this item here
I highly recommend this one. If you double wrap it, you can wear it as a bracelet. You can also wear it around your neck as a choker.
5. Tiffany's necklace
Key necklace from Tiffany's, $285Buy this item here
If you're going to have something from Tiffany's, a no-fail go-to is either something in their signature robin's egg blue shade or a pendant shaped like a key. This just happens to be both.
If your price limit is between $300 and $400...
