THE BEST TIMES OF YEAR TO BUY CLOTHING FOR LESS!

Because smart shopping is the only way to go, obvi.
  1. JANUARY
    Suits (it's a slow month, so retailers often lower prices), post-holiday sales (there are lots!), fitness gear (New Year's resolutions = good prices on gym stuff).
  2. FEBRUARY
    Jewelry (esp right before Valentine's Day, it's sales galore).
  3. MARCH
    Luggage (not technically clothing, but clothes do go INSIDE it), thanks Soring Break!
  4. APRIL
    Raincoats. They're priced to move before May's sunnier days roll around. ALSO: Vintage clothes. ALSO: Spring clothing, shoes, and accessories start going on sale.
  5. MAY
    Spring/Summer designer clothing, shoes, and accessories. ALSO: workout clothes (part two!).
  6. JUNE
    Lingerie!
  7. JULY/AUGUST
    Summer items!!! If you want more sale sizes to choose from, shop in July. August offers better discounts, but fewer sizes because the merch is more picked over.
