Clothes shopping, with Frugal Footsteps, is mainly based on timing.
The best time to hit the clearance sales is toward the end of each season. In other words, you will wait to buy winter clothes toward the end of winter, and summer clothes toward the end of summer.
You can save up to 75%, or more, by doing so.
It's worth the wait.
Finding good clearance sales can be a challenge when you do not approach end of season sales.
A simple rule of thumb is to seek sales that are close to 50% off, or higher, if you do choose to buy an item during the season.
Saving More On Name Brands...
Outlet stores carry name brands at clearance prices. These can be great places to shop. Most often, they have clearance prices as well.
Off season applies to clearance outlet stores, so be sure to time your purchases to save even more.
Another alternative is to shop ebay for name brand clothes shopping. We have put together a widget with some of these options from ebay with a search bar at the top so you can explore this option.

Just before the end of each season, there is still a large selection of clothes. You can find many discount clothes, as well as discount name brands, to choose from. It is not unusual to find items marked down 75%.

Seek "double markdowns" at the end of each season
At the end of each season, go to the sales racks at stores. You will notice many items that are marked down twice when clothes shopping. Skim through and find the best buys.
By doing so, you can purchase high end clothing at a fraction of the cost.
Stick with the Classics...
Classic dress shirts, on sale, are great buys when clothes shopping.
You can choose classic colors in dress shirts and look fabulous for any event.
Try to choose dress shirts that have a mix of 95% Cotton and 5% of Lastol, or Lycra, or polyester type of material. They require less ironing and have a tendency to last longer.
Other classics for women are turtle necks, standard colors-- such as white, black, blue, pink, and red.
Classic colored tank tops can also be used for layers throughout the year.
For slacks and skirts, stick to standard colors such as black, navy blue, brown, tan, and white. This gives you more versatility with your wardrobe and stretches your dollar.
How to choose frugal steps for Formal Events...
Once again, classic colors are a great choice when clothes shopping for formal occasions.
