We’ve been inundated with sales since Black Friday, but I really think that the real deals are during the month of January. In this post, I’m going to show you how to take advantage of a sale and shop smarter while doing it. Sales are a time where you can really score a great deal, like a designer great deal! So don’t get me wrong I love a steal…but when it comes to buying items for your wardrobe, I have a few SALE TIPS that I always follow and they have never let me down!
7 days of style sale tips:
- Take inventory of your closet. Go through your wardrobe and figure out what you’re missing or what you would like more of. I think sale time is perfect for upgrading your everyday basics.
- Don’t just buy something because it’s on sale. Unless you are going to wear it, what’s the point? It doesn’t matter if it’s the steal of the century…if you are never going to wear it, don’t spend the money no matter the amount.
- Sales are definitely the time to take advantage of designer goods. Where you might not normally pay full price, this is the time to get them. I know many women that have built fabulous, solid wardrobes with items they have purchased on sale.
- Sale Time is also about planning ahead. Quite a few of my designer shoes I have purchased on sale. This winter I’m looking for the perfect gladiator sandal to wear in the summer. If you love a quality shoe but can’t always afford the full price tag, honestly just wait for the sale.
- Sales are a time to try something different. And buy different I don’t mean the complete opposite of your personal style! I just mean this is the time to pick up that color you’ve been wanting to try but don’t want to pay the full amount. I recommend looking for sweaters, blouses, button down tops, long sleeve shirts, turtlenecks,, t-shirts in a pop of color that suits you.
- ACCESSORIES. Sunglasses, handbags, silk scarves, shoes, jewelry. You can honestly find steals!
