How To Buy Designer Sunglasses for Under $100

I have always been a huge fan of designer sunglasses for a few reasons. One, the pure glamour of rocking a designer brand, and two, designer brands have the chicest and most outrageous styles.  I love the ostentatious flare that designer sunglasses can add to your look. A few brands that I already own are Tom Ford, Gucci, Dolce & Gabanna, Fendi and more. One thing I wish I knew before paying full price and anywhere upward of $300 for a new pair of shades is where to get the best deals. In this post I’m spilling the beans on how I scored my gorgeous Valentino sunglasses for a whopping $70!

The key to scoring designer deals is to do your research! You most likely won’t be buying the latest pair of sunglasses from the most recent season, but the glory of sunglasses is that they never really go out of style! I love looking for sunglasses at bargain sale department stores. You can find a wide array of designer sunglasses for unbeatable prices! These stores include:

Nordstrom Rack

Haute Look

Saks Off 5th

Barney’s Warehouse

Neiman Marcus’ Last Call

Luckily for you, I did the grunt work of finding these deals. I picked the best sunnies (btw – I love how the fashion blogging community totally stole this word from Australians) from designers such as Prada, Burberry, Valentino, Tory Burch, Balenciaga and many more! You can shop my white Valentino glasses here, although they are sold out on Nordstrom’s Rack where I found them for $69.99. I did find a few more Valentino styles for the same price though. Below there are 10 pairs of Valentino sunglasses for under $70 and other designer brands for as low as $39! Happy shopping 🙂

    Loved this post, Taylor! I actually think I got the same pair of sunglasses as you at Nordstrom Rack except mine are a burgundy color! I love getting designer pieces at such great prices, and you are so right, sunglasses don’t go out of style!
