When you’re looking for the best deal on designer goods, you might be wondering when the best time to buy is. Whether you’re looking to save some money or you’re a frequent shopper of luxury, one thing is for certain: there are most definitely specific times of the year to shop for designer fashion. Let’s take a look.

White Sales

After the holidays, online shopping may decline dramatically, so retailers use ‘White Sales’  to entice consumers with discounts in order to increase their income. The sales are not as good as those seen over the holidays, but they’re still the finest you’ll see for a few months.

Spring Break

Many people go on vacation in the spring, and when individuals go on vacation, they like to acquire new clothing. However, merchants understand that customers don’t want to spend a lot of money on apparel after having spent money on a flight and a hotel.

As a result, tees, shorts, skirts, dresses, and beach apparel are typically on sale during the spring. They’re the most popular items and typically the easiest to get hold of at this time of year.

Back To School (September)

Back-to-school is also a major shopping season, with many consumers returning from vacation or updating their wardrobes for the coming fall.

Many retailers understand that not only children require new clothes, therefore many adult-only merchants offer sales and discounts. Back to school sales begin in the early part of August and continue until late September.

The bulk of the sales are fair and are typically the only opportunity to purchase upcoming fall fashions at a reasonable price during the year.

Black Friday

On Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the United States, shops provide huge discounts and bonuses to consumers. Nowadays, brands utilise a whole week of sales, with the largest discounts usually falling on Black Friday itself and Cyber Monday (the first Monday after Black Friday). 

Boxing Day

Boxing Day is similar to Black Friday, when retailers open for longer hours and provide consumers with discounts of (sometimes) 50-80 percent off items and services. Keep December 26th free for some serious bargain-hunting.


End Of Seasons

The season’s end is usually one of the best times to go shopping for clothing. When there’s a major season shift, such as from summer to fall, old clothes get significantly reduced since they’re no longer relevant.

With that being said, the end of spring will not bring you many incredible deals because spring clothes are just as necessary in the summer or at other times of the year.

The best time to go bargain hunting is at the end of winter (late January to early February) and at the end of summer (late August to late September), when retailers offer fantastic discounts.

At The End Of Big Holidays

Many holidays, including national ones, necessitate formal clothing, therefore stores keep plenty of luxury party dresses and elegant apparel on hand.

However, when the holidays are over, consumers are no longer in the market for as much extravagant apparel, therefore merchants begin to sell off their holiday inventory.

That being said, if you’re looking for dresses or more formal attire at a lower price, shop for formal wear after major holidays like Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

In Summary

The great news is, for lovers of luxury, there will always be a great sale to get your hands on some great finds. The best time to shop will depend entirely on the items you are looking for! Have a look at some online boutiques and sit back in awe at the amount of luxurious items you can get your hands on.
