When shopping for spring clothes and summer outfits, it can be tough to know where to start. The designer vintage options seem endless and it's difficult to know what to look for in terms of quality and fair pricing. You can find hundreds of vintage clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, and accessories at vintage stores online.
Trends come and go, but in this article, we want to examine 4 luxury designers who are known for their quality, distinction, and attention to detail. If you're looking for designer vintage items or the newest trends, a piece from a luxury brand like one of the below can't be beat.
For those who are new to Balenciaga, this legendary fashion house was started in 1917 by Cristoba Balenciaga in San Sebastian, Spain. This worthy design house was referred to by Christian Dior as “the master of us all” and is known for bubble skirts and feminine, yet “modernistic” silhouettes.

This season, the Balenciaga ready-to-wear show was a study in celebrity irony. Large silhouettes rule the day as does basic black. While almost histrionic, the looks here are truly inspiring clothing that demand respect.

Gucci has always been one of our favorites here at Decades and they need no introduction. It seems Gucci is going for a Hollywood noir look this year. Sharp lines and pastels matched with black seem to be the theme at the Spring/Summer show. This is a very appealing and purposeful look.

This year, Prada seems to be diving into a practical street look. The theme of their Spring/Summer 2022 collection is “seduction”, and it all seems to be a straightforward declaration of intent. These looks are practical, no-nonsense, and to the point, yet not at all boring. They speak of action and immediacy.

In contrast, Louis Vuitton has staked out a nostalgic and playful look this year for their Women’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection. Patterns, pastels, and tweeds mix and match, giving this year's collection a daytime, university flair. We love it! The herringbone patterns contrast with the splashes of red and pink creating a whimsical touch.
The Spring/Summer 2022 collections from the various designers include plenty of perfect styles for every occasion, from casual day looks to luxurious evening gowns and everything in between. Your choice of ready-to-wear clothing speaks volumes about you and your demands for quality in your lifestyle.
Let's talk about what you should consider when you shop for these looks.
What to Consider When Shopping Designer Clothes for Summer 2022
Below are some things to consider when shopping for designer clothes during Spring and Summer 2022.
Quality is important when shopping for designer clothes, especially because they tend to be more expensive. Be sure to check the material and fit to make sure they work for you. When you buy from a consignment boutique you trust, you know you will get quality items, even if you primarily shop online. Reputation and service are everything!
Whether you're shopping for casual basics or formal wear, finding something to fit your personal style is important to feel confident and comfortable in what you are wearing.
Fashion designers understand that people have different tastes so there are many options available to ensure that everyone can make a fashion statement. A great shop can help curate amazing looks, using their years of fashion expertise to acquire vintage and designer items for sale at affordable prices.
Designer clothes were once reserved for those who could afford their steep price tags, but now people can find designer items at reasonable prices. You don't have to sacrifice style and quality for a good deal! Your consignment specialist can help you find a previously loved piece that will fit your taste and budget.
4. Variety and Availability
The Summer 2022 season is approaching quickly, and you want to make sure to purchase pieces for your closet before it's too late!
Maintaining relationships with your favorite shops and retailers can inform you of opportunities to pick up that great, unique find that can be the centerpiece of your closet. Classic pieces from well-known designer brands never go out of fashion and you can discover some truly amazing vintage clothes, bags, shoes and so on that will still work with the latest trends, even if they are from previous collections.
5. Customer Reviews
It's important to read reviews before purchasing anything online because many sites offer different products and shipping methods.
If you are shopping online, reviews are a great place to start. You can get an idea of what others think about the items they received and how the quality holds up over time. Reviews can help you decide if it is worth your money.
Don't hesitate to reach out to a consignment shop directly. A trustworthy business selling luxury, designer goods won’t shy from customer relationships and will be proud to demonstrate the quality of the goods they curate.
