Shop Late Winter for Special Items

In addition to those specific sales, October is a good time to shop for winter wear and capitalize on early sales, according to The Balance. And the winter months are a key time for sales on such items as party dresses and formal clothing — particularly right after the holidays, in late December and early January.

Visit These Other Sites for Deals

If you just want to shop general deals, try checking sites such as Overstock.com or SmartBargains.com. And if you’re looking for the best price on a particular engine, try using search engines like Pricegrabber.com and Google Shopping.

Shop When Demand Is Low

A final key tip about shopping for clothing sales, according to The Balance, is to shop for items when demand is low — which means in advance. If you can wait another season to wear your new items, consider buying coats and pants and sweaters for next year when they go on clearance this year, as retailers try to get rid of them to make space.
