Save Money on Clothes by Shopping at End of Season Sales
If you don’t mind not having the very latest fashions, you can save plenty of money by shopping at end of season sales. Moreover, if you can wait for an item to reach the most discounted rack in the store, then you can expect to save up to 80 percent on your purchase.
To give you a better idea about when to shop for your different wardrobes, here is a general timeline for end of season clothing sales:
Spring clothes: April through June
Summer clothes: July through September
Fall clothes: October through December
Winter clothes: January through March
It should also be noted that certain specialized items tend to go on sale around the same time each year. These items include formal party wear in January, bridal gowns in April, athletic clothes in May, and bathing suits in August.
Also, keep in mind that while the larger discounts do tend to occur near the end of a sales cycle, the longer you wait, the less of a selection you’ll likely find. If you wait too long before buying an item, it may sell out at your local retailer. If there’s a particular piece of clothing that you have your heart set on owning, consider purchasing it at a mid-range discount to lower your odds of it selling out in your preferred size, color, or style.
