Keeping up with the latest trends can be expensive so it is important to know when and how to find the best deals. I’ve been able to save more on fashion items for each season by doing some strategic shopping.

I’m really not brand loyal but I know that some people love wearing designer and high end brands. You can still get a good deal by using these tips even if you have more expensive taste than I do 🙂 .
The first thing you will want to do to really maximize your savings is to sign up for a site that offers cash back on your purchases. My personal favorite is Ebates.
It is so easy to use, you just choose the store where you want to shop and click on the link from the Ebates website. When you make a purchase, money will be added to your account. I’ve gotten as much as 30% back on one shopping trip!
The amount you get back depends on the store but you will see how much each one offers before you start shopping. You even get a free $10 bonus when you sign up and make your first purchase!
Ibotta is also another cash back app that you can use. They mainly offer grocery rebates but they do offer some to stores like: J. Crew, Clark’s, and more. The rebates change weekly so check the app before you head to the store.
Know When to Shop
To really get some great deals, you need to know when to stock up on the essentials. These are the best months to snag a deal on popular categories so you can plan your shopping for the year.
June: Blazers and shorts are at deep discounts.
July: Spring items are going on clearance as stores make room for Fall items. Jeans are at good discounts as well.
August: Summer items start hitting the clearance racks but it’s hard to find a good deal on designer items at this time of year.
September: This is a good time to watch the Labor Day and Back to School Sales. Backpacks are at their lowest prices.
October: This is when you will find the biggest discounts on jewelry. Watch for Friends and Family sales in mid-Oct.
November: You will find a large selection of discounted boots, sandals, coats, and handbags. Fall item prices start to drop as they gear up for Black Friday. This is also a good time to buy sweaters.
December: Fall items continue to be discounted at up to 70% off. This is another good time to buy jewelry as you will find the biggest discounted selection around the holidays.
January: This is the time to stock up on active wear and yoga gear as people start New Year’s resolutions.
February: Winter items start going on clearance as new Spring fashion comes into the stores.
March: This is the perfect time to get new sunglasses. New stock is coming in so more styles will be on sale.
April: Many stores will be offering Friends and Family sales this time of year on their entire inventory.
May: Last seasons suits, coats, and handbags are marked down. Get some great deals on swimwear around Memorial Day.
Best Deals on Designer Brands
I don’t mind investing in a good quality piece that I am going to get some good wear out of. But that doesn’t mean I still don’t like getting the best price that I can.
For designer brands, there are a few sites that I always check to get the best deals:
I have seen designer brands for up to 60% off! Their inventory changes regularly so it is always fun to check every week to see the new items that they have.
Daily Deal Sites
If you aren’t designer loyal there are some daily deal sites you will want to check out. They offer some really cute clothes for 50% off on average, sometimes even more!
Jane offers some really cute and budget friendly clothing, home decor, accessories, and kid items. Zulily offers up the same but they do have higher end brands as well.
I’ve gotten some deals for 80% off from these sites before and the quality is always great!
