2. Stick to Your Seasonal Color Palette
Save yourself the time and the hassle and stick to colors that are in your seasonal color palette! Sure, sale season is a great way to try new colors without breaking the bank.

3. Size Matters

4. Keep In Mind Your Style Aesthetics!
We all have been there when we see something super discounted and go crazy and buy multiples of that item only to come home and realize that although, the item was 70% off it just isn’t something we will ever wear!
After you have found the item of your choice, look at it in front of a mirror and ask yourself if the garment works for your body silhouette, lifestyle and personality needs. Repeat this step for all items that you picked from the sale racks that match your color seasonal palette.
5. Try and Buy

You must try your clothing items before you buy them. This not only assures that you are picking the right size for your body, the right fit and color but also makes sure you don’t take home that lumpy and unflattering dress!
