The key to finding the best fashion bargain is to do your homework before you even start shopping. Here is just how you can do it.


Go through your wardrobe and have a clear definition of your style

Most times when you go shopping you go there with no clue as to what you are looking for. In the end, you buy things that neither fit you, nor appeal to your style. The worst of it all is that you spend a lot of money on a piece or an accessory that you’d probably never wear.

The best way to go bargain shopping  is to go through your wardrobe before you even think of going shopping. Take a mental note of what exactly you need and the true definition of your style. This will give you a clear definition of what exactly you are meant to look for when you go shopping.


Bargain fashion shop during off-season

Like I mentioned in the How to Look Stylish on a Tight Budget post, shopping during off-season is the way to go. Shopping during the off-season gives you a variety of choices to make. The only thing is that you’d probably have to wait for the coming season to actually wear the clothes. That means that you need to make sure you plan ahead before you do your shopping during the off-season, but it is definitely worth it. Shopping during the off-season opens you to quality clothing at discounted rates. You end up buy high quality clothing at a really low price.


Scout for coupon codes

Yes, there are coupons codes for quality and stylish clothing. These coupons give you the clothes at a discounted rate, saving you a lot of money, so they are worth looking into.




Find out when your favourite store will stock new merchandise

This will require that you go undercover, well kind of. Clothes stores stock regularly at certain times during the month. If you want to get bargain fashion, then you need to keep up-to-date with when they actually get new merchandise. When the store gets new merchandise, the old stock gets pushed to the back of the store and their prices drop considerably. This gives you access to quality, yet cheaper clothing.


Check out clearance stores for bargain fashion

Contrary to what some people think, you can actually find a lot of stylish clothing items from clearance stores. You may even get a chance to see a couple of designer outfits. The best part of it all is that they come at affordable prices, making you look stylish on a budget.

  1. Very nice post. Actually, I wrote a same on this topic but still on my draft 😉 Coupon are the best to save some bucks. Many of us don’t bother to check or forget for coupons. When, I was living in Dubai. I used niche coupon website for my frugal living and literally I saved a lot of money on my online shopping.

  2. My wife is often called the Bargain Queen by her close friends. She always looks for coupons online. She will always look up when car boot events are on, just to see what people maybe trying to get rid off. She always looks out for sales and bargain events. This is a great post. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love going into thrift shops! I have found some really cool pieces for such a good price! My mother thinks otherwise but my wardrobe has expanded massively since opening my thoughts to them!

  4. I never consider looking for vouchers for clothing, will definitely be doing that now! I love the dresses you are wearing in this post, they look fantastic on you! X

  5. I always check for coupon codes before I buy anything. In the sales I try to buy timeless pieces for the coming year, often they are still fashionable a year later x

  6. I have a hard time shopping in the off-season, similar to buying Christmas decorations after Christmas. I usually have a budget of what I’m willing to spend on an article of clothing so that I don’t go overboard. I usually don’t pay more than $30 for a top or pants, and no more than $50 for a dress. Marshall’s and TJ Maxx are good for fashionable clothes at low cost too.

  7. You are so on point Stella. Getting quality pieces when you are on a tight budget absolutely requires both head and mind to work together. Off-season shopping has always worked for me as I often get quality pieces for ridiculously less prices. Lovely and very informative post.
