Here are our tips and tricks to finding discount clothing and saving big on your next fashion purchase!

As one of the most popular categories for online shopping, the clothing industry sees plenty of competition among retailers. What does this mean for you? Better deals! As clothing stores try to reel in online shoppers with incentives, shoppers can expect to see a wide selection of discount clothing, fashion deals, and valuable online coupons that can get you £ off you purchase. Here are some of the more common deals offered by fashion retailers:
- Store-wide discounts when you apply a discount code
- A percentage or cash amount off your order total when you spend a specified minimum
- Free shipping offers
- Discounts on specific ranges (i.e. 20% off all denim)
- Buy 1, get 1 free offers and other variations of this deals (Buy 2, get 1 free, etc.)
- One-day-only promotions and flash sales
- Extra discounts on sale merchandise
As you may have discovered while shopping online, cheap clothes are not just going to drop into your lap. Finding a good clothes sale or a valuable fashion promotion requires a little research and some savvy shopping know-how. Here are our top tips for finding discount clothing and saving big on your favourite brands:
Don't be tardy for the party: As with many things in life, being late to the game means missing out. This is especially true for any good clothing sale. Popular retailers will sell out quickly when they mark down their items, so shopping a week into a good sale will usually mean limited sizes and sold out styles.
Subscribe to updates and follow on social media: Hate missing a good fashion deal? Signing up to email lists and following your favourite clothing shops on social media will ensure that you stay in the know. In addition, retailers will frequently post contests and giveaways on their accounts, allowing shoppers to try their luck for a chance to win great prizes!
Shop off-season: There is nothing that will save as much money as shopping ahead. If you aren't too worried about dressing your family in last-season's fashions, end-of-season sales can be an amazing opportunity to score cheap clothes. When shopping for children's apparel, this may mean doing a little guesswork as to their sizes next year, but ultimately, even if a few things don't quite fit, you'll likely end up saving over 50% by shopping off-season.
Bigger hauls: Browsing online, it may be tempting to pick up a cute dress here, a few shirts there.... But that isn't necessarily the most cost-effective way to shop for clothing. Most clothing shops will offer better discounts for bigger spends, as well as additional promotions such as free shipping. If you have a favourite spot to buy apparel, keep an eye out for promotions like "Take 25% off when you spend £100+" and make a bigger purchase that will last you a few months. Of course, impulse purchases will still happen (we've all found something we just couldn't pass up!), but doing larger clothing hauls can at least save you when buying clothing basics and essentials for you and your family.
