The change in seasons means one thing: summer clothing bargains abound. While many women swoon over the new cold weather styles, a savvy shopper will seize the opportunity to purchase deeply discounted warm weather apparel. In essence, don’t shy away from the clearance racks this time of the year. Take your time sifting through the leftovers, and you will find five amazing casual wear tops at rock bottom prices.
T-shirts – A Year Round Staple
Who doesn’t love the relaxed feel of a cozy t-shirt? This wardrobe staple can be worn alone during the summer, and it can be layered under sweaters, blouses, and blue jean jackets in the fall. Snap up a variety of colors and styles for pennies on the dollar this time of year. Some sizes might be difficult to find, but don’t give up. For instance, I often check out the juniors section for larger sized t-shirts if the women’s section has sold out.
Cami Comfort Can’t Be Beat
Like t-shirts, camis morph beautifully from season to season. Wear them alone on sweltering hot days while gardening, and use them for an extra layer of warmth when sitting outside at a late fall football game. White and black camis will take your wardrobe to the next level, but don’t count out other colors. Buy a variety now, as retailers mistakenly think women view camis as a summer only item.
White Button Down Blouse
I own three white blouses, as this casual top option literally takes me from the beach to the concert hall with ease! For instance, purchase a boyfriend fit white blouse, and use it for a beach cover up on these last few warm days, then wear it as an unstructured blazer over a black t-shirt and black skinny jeans when temperatures dip. Roll up the sleeves, and add a statement necklace (as well as cute flats) for a polished look.
Licensed Team Apparel
Many women have a favorite baseball team, one that they hope will make it all the way to the World Series; unfortunately, many teams have long dry spells. When this happens, logo clothing will be deeply discounted this time of the year. A smart shopper realizes that while her team might not be in the running this season, next year will be a different story. Buy a few tops now to wear to next year’s playoff series!
A final hot buy right now is the sleeveless tank top. In September, I usually buy a few bright colors, such as turquoise, peach, and pink. In fall, the little pop of color under my black cardigan gives me a psychological boost on cool days. Target currently has ribbed tanks on sale for as little as $4.50 online. Do your research, and you should be able to find similar deals online and in stores.
