Shop Seasonally to Save Money on Clothing
Posted on Thursday, November 28th, 2013 at 7:00 am
You can save a lot of money on clothing if you buy it when it is on sale. Every month, there are certain types of clothing that are part of an annual sale. In order to take advantage of these deals, you have to know exactly when to shop for what. Here is a quick list to help you save money on clothing.
You can find great deals on jeans around the end of July, and continuing through the end of August. This is when the Back-to-School sales are happening. If you can wait, it may be to your advantage to shop for jeans in September. The prices will drop, again, so the stores can clear out their excess stock of denim.
Socks, Underwear, and Bras
January is the best time to shop for underwear, bras, and socks. Stores have “White Sales” at the beginning of the year. Typically, this type of sale includes everything from sheets and towels to underwear, bras, and socks. Sometimes, it can also include bathrobes.
Victoria’s Secret has its Semi-Annual Sale in June. Other stores will follow suit, so they can stay competitive. June is a good month to pick up some bras and panties that are fancier than usual. Often, sleepwear is included in this type of sale.
Swimwear and Sandals
The best time to buy sandals, swimwear, and beach cover ups is August. In many parts of the United States, the weather will start to get too cold for swimming by the end of that month. You can save money if you wait for that end of the season sale. August is the perfect month to buy a new swimsuit that you can wear on a cruise or a Winter vacation to a warm, sunny, place.
This is another type of clothing that goes on sale at the beginning and end of a season. Save money by shopping early, in the Fall, before the weather gets really cold. Or, wait until the end of the season, when Spring is about to arrive. Either way will get you the best savings on a Winter coat.
November is the best month of the year to buy a wedding dress. The prices start to drop in November, and go even lower in December. Wait too long, and there will be less of a selection. November is also a good time to purchase bridesmaid dresses (that might be part of the sale on wedding dresses).
Baby and Children’s Clothing
Fancy baby clothing goes on sale in November. That’s a good month to buy the outfit you want your child to wear for a holiday photo. Many stores lower the prices of day-to-day baby clothing, and children’s clothing, during the Memorial Day Sales at the end of Summer. That’s also a good weekend to get a great deal on Back-to-School clothing.
