The Best Time of Year to Shop for Clothes

Right now is arguably the best time of year to shop for clothes! There are still tons of cute winter pieces on sale that will transition into spring, as well as lots of cute new arrivals that you can wear now and later. Today I’m teaming up with Walmart to share some cute wear now and later pieces all under $20!


For reference, I’m 5’7″ with a long torso and long legs. I typically wear a 28 in jeans or a size 6. My bra size is a 34D, and I am a true size medium in tops but sometimes size down for a more tailored fit or up for a more oversized fit. If I own the item I will always list my size and any recommendations I have for sizing up or down for quick reference. (TTS= true to size!)

The Best Time of Year to Shop for Clothes: Pieces to Wear Now and Later

The Best Time of Year to Shop for Clothes, tall chelsea boots, oversized sweater

This slouchy sweater is the prettiest neutral and is perfect with leggings and skinny jeans. I have a small and I would recommend sizing down. Speaking of skinny jeans, I am beyond impressed with this pair from the No Boundaries line. They are so soft and stretchy and incredibly flattering. Plus their on sale for just $11. Beat that!! Juniors sizing, I am in a size 7.

I’ve gone on and on over these tunic length sweatshirts for years. They have a soft, vintage-like feel and are perfect for a front tuck or with leggings. They come in 15 colors and prints and I have at least four. I size up to a large for a slouchy fit. I thought this pretty pink was so pretty for spring and I think it looks so cute paired with this adjustable leopard print baseball hat!

I cannot get over the quality of this leoard pullover and leggings! They feel incredibly high-end and are lined with the softest fleece, perfect for working out outdoors this time of year. I love a good athleisure look and the versatility of these pieces. Wear them together or separately. I’m in a small in the top and a medium in the leggings. Size up in the leggings if between.

Another favorite find from Walmart this moth are these $15 straight leg jeans! The quality is very impressive and they fit like designer jeans. I pulled together this entire outfit for under $50, proving again that this really is the best time of year to shop for clothes! Size up in the jeans; I’m normally a size 6 and have a 9 in these. This shaker knit sweater is another must have basic and on sale for just $11. I have a medium and it comes in several really pretty neutrals.

ruffle sweatshirt

Last;y, this adorable sweatshirt is just $15 and has the prettiest ruffle detail ith a raw hem. I love the fit and it’s incredibly soft. I sized up but should have stayed true to size. I’ve styled this with joggers and jeans and always get compliments on it!
