In a world that often tempts us with the latest fashion trends, our blog is your go-to guide for mastering the art of frugal fashion. Saving money on clothing doesn't mean compromising on style; it's about making savvy choices and discovering the joy of a budget-friendly closet. 

TopCashback’s consumer expert Samantha Landau offers her advice on frugal fashion and maximizing your savings while shopping for clothes.


Know the sales cycle. Stores typically follow the same calendar of sales each year, so take note of any sales for your favorite retailers and try to save your shopping trip until then (if you can).

For example, Nordstrom hosts its “Anniversary Sale” event every year beginning in mid-July, and Sephora historically hosts its “Savings Event” once in the spring and once in the fall.


Shop end-of-season sales. As the holiday/winter season ends and spring approaches, you may find deals on seasonal items.

For example, if you notice you’re in need of a new winter coat or boots, buy new ones once you see significant markdowns. That way, you’ll have brand-new winter gear for next year. And when it comes to clothing, basic items like tees and cardigans can still be worn well into the spring for layering as the temperature changes. 

Stores typically follow the same calendar of sales each year.

Layer on discounts. To get the best deals, look at all of your options to save. Join loyalty programs for retailers you often shop at to start accruing points in the new year, which can be saved up to use for future shopping (depending on the program).

Subscribing to retailer emails may help you score special coupons and offers, too. Opt to use those discounts in conjunction with a rewards credit card to stack your savings even further. 


Pro-tip #1: If you shop online, you can save even more by shopping through a cash back site, like TopCashback, which guarantees the highest percentage of your money back on qualifying purchases from over 7,000 stores nationwide, like Macy’s, Best Buy and The Home Depot.   

Pro-tip #2: Download the free TopCashback Browser Extension to your desktop so you can be instantly notified of coupon and cash back offers whenever you shop. You’ll never miss out on any potential savings as a result.
