Nowadays, it is increasingly hard to spot genuine items, especially on the internet where there is a large market for counterfit products.
When you find the designer item you are looking for, check to make sure that what you are buying is in fact a genuine piece. Asking questions about (1) the item's history, if there are receipts, or store proof of purchase (2) if the store or another store selling the brand can authenticate the product (3) if the item is being sold with an authenticity card, or a sales tag which can provide proof it is original (4) material - look at close up photos detailing the materials and manufacturing of the garment.
Buying designer clothing has benefits including the high quality manufacturing, design, and durability of the pieces. There are many ways to look for well priced, or limited edition designer clothing - in markets, on the internet, at sample sales, or from department stores or boutiques of the brand.

Above all, the item should feel right for you, and should be something that you will enjoy wearing.
