By now all the rage for the latest trends of the summer season has died down and many fashionistas have begun stocking their wardrobes with fall’s trends. The desire has changed to something comfy and warm.

But while the desire for warmth has chased summer pieces away, there is still something in the air that makes any fashionista want to keep buying summer pieces. This something in the air is called sales. There are sales everywhere proclaiming deep price cuts on some of the summer season’s latest trends. While you might be wondering why would anyone buy summer clothes in the fall, there is nothing wrong with being prepared for the next summer season. Especially when you can stock up on summer must haves for less.

Even the summer pieces you purchase now while on sale can be transitioned into the fall and winter season. Just be creative with your outfit pairing choices. No one is really interested in seeing skin in the winter so cover up by layering. That spaghetti strap tank you found on sale would be perfectly layered with a chunky knit cardigan.

Not everything should be considered when purchasing items for next summer and for transitioning into fall. Some are better left at the clearance rack until next year. These items include bathing suits, shorts, and graphic tees. Items like these can be bought again next year and will most likely be considered stale once you see the new team of options in stock. So wait to purchase these items.

Instead splurge on the essentials. These include items that you can use now and items that can be saved for later. Stock up on tank tops and plain t-shirts. They will keep your skin guarded against itchy sweaters. Look for discounts in jeans and high heeled sandals.

Be careful not to purchase multiples items just because they are on sale. You could end up with a lot of items that just sit around in your closet collecting dust. Instead purchase items you know you’ll get a lot of wear out of.
