10 Great Designer Brands That Don’t Cost A Monthly Salary

Everyone loves a designer piece from time to time but there’s no denying they involve serious investment. However, an influx of great brands offering luxe collections at a lower price point now means buying a designer piece doesn’t require a month’s wages. Whether you're looking for swimwear or statement day dresses, here are the brands to shop at NET-A-PORTER for more affordable designer fashion.

Recently launched on NET-A-PORTER, DÔEN’s nostalgic designs clad with puff sleeves and floral print make versatile daytime classics. As they’re the kind of dresses that won’t date, and with the most expensive piece at £330, they’ll make fail-safe investments for summers to come.

Faithfull’s super feminine, floral tea dresses have made them an Instagram favourite. Check out their swimwear too for cutesy retro-inspired designs that won’t set you back a small fortune.

Scandi brand Ganni has earned cult status, and for good reason – their statement pieces that look far more expensive than their accessible price points have made them the brand to go to for affordable designer fashion.

With romantic ruffles and dreamy floral prints, New York brand Les Rêveries is quietly becoming the destination for both occasion and daywear. For a wedding guest alternative to cult favourite Rixo, the brand is seriously worth consideration.

For well-designed classics that have subtly feminine twists, look to Nanushka for pieces that’ll stand the test of time. The Hungarian designer’s collections have proved popular, thanks to their easy to wear shapes and reasonable price tags.

One of the first sustainable brands to make waves in the fashion world, Reformation remains a popular choice for easy to wear summer staples. Their most expensive maxi dress will set you back a mere £300.

The brainchild of Danish Instagram stars Thora Valdimars and Jeanette Friis Madsen, Rotate Birger Christensen’s focus is on dresses – from 80s inspired minis to belted maxis, there’s something for all tastes.

Following the pyjama sets that put them on the fashion radar, Sleeper has branched out to statement day dresses – we love their oversized sleeves and flattering off shoulder necklines.

Staud made a name for themselves with their 60s inspired bags, but the brand’s ready-to-wear collection is worth a peruse for pastel-toned statement pieces that’ll liven up any outfit.

Check out influencer favourite The Line By K if you love luxurious basics – think feminine blouses, silky slips and midi skirts that will go with everything.
