Many designer outlets exist simply for the reason of getting rid of excess merchandise. Take advantage of these steep discounts whenever you can.

Be on the lookout for sales year round as well when stores are trying to make room for new merchandise.

Another option, if there are no outlet stores close to you is to visit a second-hand store. Most second-hand stores carry gently used items that people no longer want and have donated for charity purposes. This is a great way to get fashionable, designer items at a much lower cost than sticker price. EBay is a great source for designer clothes at a discount.

You may also choose to make your own clothes in a similar fashion to current trends. Making your own clothes is a great way to make a statement and also to save money. Fabrics can be purchased at local craft stores. Not a sewer? If you are willing to learn, you can learn to sew at your local craft store as well. Not only will you have saved money, but you will be wearing an original made by you and that guarantees that nobody will have the same item.

Shop the clearance racks. Oftentimes department stores will clearance out merchandise in order to make room for the new season’s merchandise.
