I Just Found Dozens of Trendy Designer Finds Under $250—Shop My Favorites

When shopping, sometimes you want a cheap thrill, and other times you want a designer cheap thrill. If buying a brand new Bottega Veneta bag isn’t quite in your budget, but buying under-$250 silk Tom Ford boxer shorts is, then this is the story for you. I am the first person to preach that labels aren’t everything, but as a true fashion girl, I will admit that scoring something labeled with a designer name you’ve admired for years feels really good, even if it’s the most affordable item they sell. 

A great place to do the shopping for all the aforementioned requirements is Net-a-Porter. Its curation of designer goods is always pristine and the breadth of price points ensures there is always a little something for everyone. Ahead, I rounded up the best (and trendiest) designer finds under $250 from Net-a-Porter including hats from Paco Rabanne, delicious Acne Studios items, and an Oscar de la Renta necklace you’ll add to your cart so fast, I promise.
