I have the feeling that sales started pretty early this Winter. Some shops were cutting price even before Christmas. Today I’m in München, and the shops are already full of Spring Collections. Winter has just started! It’s almost surreal to see all those colorful and light clothes hanging there while I’m freezing.
Well, but now that you’re back from your Ski week, it’s time to be prepared for the next Winter sport: last days of sales. To be fit and well trained, we have some crucial tips for you.
Try shopping on weekdays, preferably during the daytime to avoid the crowd.
2- Stay Cool
Make a list of what you need/want, and the shops you can get these from.
3- Set A Budget
Set your budget and stick to it. Don’t be tempted by a price tag. This truly is the golden rule, only ever buy an item if it is a style which truly flatters you. It may have 50% off, but it is not an investment piece if it just sits in the bottom of your wardrobe never to be worn.
4- Go Timeless
Invest in timeless, well-cut dresses, jackets, and trousers, without obvious references to current trends. You’ll then be able to wear them season after season.
5- Compare Price
Just because something is marked 50 percent off at one store doesn’t mean you’re getting the best price possible. Use sites like shopstyle.com and apps like Amazon Price Check to see if there’s a better deal elsewhere.
6- Collector’s Items
It’s clear that collecting fashion and accessories can turn out to be quite a lucrative hobby. If you’ve got an eye for rare finds, end-of-season sales can be an excellent time to pick up limited-edition pieces and archival items. That one is a huge bargain; Altazurra for Target on Net-a-Porter!
7- Online Shops Are Also On Sale
For the absolute lowest prices around, make sure to not overlook your favorite discount and off-price retailers—like theoutnet.com and guilt.com —because, just like your local full-price store, they’re also hosting sales at the end of every season. It’s also a great time to hit up the “Sale” and “Clearance” section on e-commerce sites or pay a visit to your local outlet stores—they’re getting ready to clear out existing stock for new shipments too. Our favorite shops: thecorner.com, mytheresa.com, frenchconnection.com.
