If you want to save big on clothes shopping, then you need to buy out of season. By thinking long term with your choice of fashions and clothing purchases, you can make your wardrobe last longer. It is possible to expand your overall clothing selection and accessorize without always replacing your entire annual wardrobe. If you do this right, it can also be a real boost to your clothing budget.

Money Saving Tips
In my old life, the start of September meant the start of business trips. For others it means heading off to college, or traveling to New York Fashion Week, or getting a post-Labor Day vacay under your belt for a reduced rate. Add it all up, and September is a big month for travel.
Layovers, stale airplane air, jet lag, bad circulation from sitting for long hours… travel can be pretty uncomfortable. A way to make it more enjoyable is to dress appropriately. By dressing with care for your next flight, you will feel great, look great, and may even receive better customer service. Taking cues from celebrity travel veterans like Jennifer Aniston, I have complied a list of items for a chic and comfortable flight:

I recently wrote about contemporary style icon Rachel Bilson and how to achieve her style on any budget. It's great to find celebrity style role models--while we all can't afford the fashions worn by celebrities, we can use them as inspiration and as a tool to accomplish our own personal style on our budget. Celebrities are great style icons because it's easy to find pictures of them dressed up or down, no matter the season.
While Rachel Bilson is a favorite style icon of mine, there are several other women in the media these days who are just as sartorially inspiring. One is Olivia Palermo, who is a bit more daring with her fashion choices yet has a very definite personal style.
Here are some tips to achieve Olivia Palermo's style no matter what's in your wallet.

Earlier in the week, Abercrombie & Fitch made the bold marketing decision to offer to pay Jersey Shore's "The Situation" to not wear the company's clothes on television. This may be the first recorded instance of reverse product placement.

Well, you hunted across the web, found all the coupons you could
and finally bought that item at the lowest possible price at that
point of time from the website you were comfortable buying from.
Now what? Do you regularly go back and check that the price has not
dropped? Did you know that most retailers will do a
price adjustment for you within 30 days of your purchase. And if
they don't agree on that, depending on the price drop and
shipping/return policies you can always return and buy that item

Retailers use flash sales to spur sales of particular items. They mark down a particular product for a specific amount of time. The sales are only open to people who have joined the site, and the products typically sell out before the discount period has ended. Flash sales started at high-end fashion stores that wanted to clear out inventory quickly.
The trend has become more widespread in the past few months with more flash sale sites opening that sell more than just high-end fashion.
