Whether you've been in the business world for a while, or you are entering into it for the first time, the idea of "dressing for success" is not exaggerated. In many businesses, everyone from the person answering phones in a cubicle to the CEO of the company are often required to maintain either a "business" look or a "business casual" look in order to meet dress code requirements, and possibly draw attention to themselves enough to get considered for that raise or promotion. But when you start looking at the price tags on the latest fashions, there can be a bit of sticker shock. But there are ways to get around paying these high prices so you can actually use part of your paycheck on something other than your wardrobe.
When it comes to buying new business clothes, January is the best time to go shopping. Most retailers tend to participate is post-holiday sales that can bring in a lot of deals. If suits need to be in your wardrobe these also go on sale this month and it's also when winter coats start to get marked down. If traveling is in your job description, picking up some new luggage in March is also a great idea. Looking to accessorize? Look for jewelry in March, August, and September.
If your company allows for "Casual Fridays," where jeans are allowed, it's best to hang on through "Back-to-School" season and head to the store in late September after the school kids have the bulk of their fall wardrobe set.
Another shopping option is to look around thrift stores and flea markets. While these options bring a lot of quality used clothing, there are many overstocked new items as well, and you can get some great deals, especially in April. All year round it's a good idea to watch for close out deals of stores that are closing their doors permanently.
