When it comes to luxury knits, St. John is the reigning global king. The classic silhouettes and impeccable fit has drawn the brand fans that range from celebrities (remember those Angelina Jolie ads?) to socialites. We know that obtaining anything luxury is going to cost a pretty penny. For mere mortals like us, St. John’s knits will cost us at least half of our paychecks (and that’s if you have a high-paying job!). And to be honest, we’re not trying to spend that much on an article of clothing, no matter how luxurious and fine it is. Nevertheless, being the budget fashionistas we are, we know a number of ways to score St. John knits on a budget. Every girl deserves to own one of those silky soft knits just not for the same amount as our rent.
Where to Find Affordable St. John Knits
St. John Sale Section
Your first stop should be to check out the site’s sale section. Most designer sites have a sale section that offers up to 60% off full price merchandise. Most of these sales happen at the end of a season. Currently, the global luxury brand is transitioning into spring, so there are a number of pieces that are slashed way below retail price.
You should also checkout your local neighborhood consignment shops, or the place where rich people go to dispose of pricey items that either still have the tag on them or they’ve worn once and God forbid they wear it twice. St. John is a popular luxury brand and you will have a better chance of finding one of those soft knit sweaters there.
