Buying Summer clothes in the Winter?
Want to know a secret? Shopping off-season could be one of the thriftiest things you do this year! Us retailers will often reduce summer clothing – like T-shirts, flip-flops, shorts, and sunglasses – once Autumn has started. So, even if you’ve packed away your summer wardrobe, you could save money by planning ahead. Still not convinced? By the end of this article, you’re going to know three reasons why you need to buy summer clothes in the winter! Let’s get started.
1. It’s cheaper than buying in the summer!
This one is pretty obvious but shopping for clothes off season could save you hundreds of pounds. Believe us – more people than ever before are shopping for holiday clothes in the winter. “But why?”, we hear you ask. Well, retailers like us often try and offload any merchandise that hasn’t sold from the previous summer season. What does this mean? Cheaper prices for you! Because there isn’t much demand from other consumers during this time of the year, you’ll be able to shop for everything from skirts to shoes, belts to blouses and save more money than you would do during the summer. Result! But that’s not all. You could make even bigger savings by using a coupon code; just enter it when you are prompted by the retailer during the checkout process. You never know – you could get free delivery or a 2-for-1 offer!
2. The sales are on!
You’re more likely to pick up a bargain during the winter months. For starters, there’s Black Friday; this is when many clothing retailers reduce their prices. Then, after Christmas, the January sales take place – another chance for you to make your money go further. Not only are summer clothes cheaper during the winter, but you could also make further savings when you shop during the Black Friday or New Year sales. A quick tip: you need to be quick! The best merchandise usually flies off the shelves, so don’t leave it too late. Most websites will advertise their sales several days in advance – so there’s no excuse! Remember – you don’t have to wait until the following summer to wear your holiday clothes. If you’re planning a trip somewhere sunny during the winter, buying clothes off season could save you plenty of cash. Don’t believe us? Visit your favourite fashion retailer and see for yourself!
3. Be the first to buy the newest summer clothes
Although summer clothing is heavily promoted during the spring months, many websites will start selling summer clothes after Christmas. This is the perfect opportunity to check out new fashions and trends for the upcoming summer months – long before most other shoppers. See something that takes your fancy? Buy it early – before the price increases! Although your summer holiday might be at the back of mind after the festive season (especially if you’ve spent way too much on Christmas presents), planning ahead will provide you with access to the newest merchandise for cheaper. Once you’ve ordered summer fashion, you can pack them away until you need them. When summer does arrive, you’ll be thanking yourself that you had the foresight to buy off season!
