- Have a look at thrift and discount shops’ counters. Thrift and discount shops offer great discounts on slightly used clothes so it’s possible to find practically new brand items for a fraction of their original price. Let’s be honest, minor defects that often are not even visible are no reason to look down your nose at cheap brand clothes. These days, most people shop at thrift shops once in a while.
- Search for coupons. When at a store ready to check out, use your smartphone to search for clothing coupons. There are plenty of popular applications for Android and IOS available such as Coupon Closet and Coupon Sherpa.

- Look for clearance items. Online retailers sell out of season clothes and footwear with great discounts so keep looking for clearance items. Buying winter coats in spring and bikinis when summer is over is totally worth it.
