The year so far has been the year of good deals on adorable sweaters. Okay, so it's been way more than that, but I seriously have found some of my new favorite sweaters for unreal deals! I don't know if I've just been really lucky or if I'm just that good... Either way, I'll take it! If you follow me on IG its no secret I'm a huge fan of any budget friendly options, but it can be really hard to find good sweaters that don't break the bank. I'm here to share my favorite sweaters under $50 so you babes can get in on the fun too. I'll also share some of my secrets on how I've found the best deals this year and where!
Knowing When to Shop
Knowing the right time to shop for a deal is one of the most important things. There are the obvious times like Black Friday and Cyber Monday however I've found the stress and the rush usually keeps me from real finding anything I like. I also feel like sometimes I end up getting things I don't totally love just because there is such a rush. So this year I decided to skip the huge sale days and focus on the days leading up to Christmas and the days leading away from the New Year. I will say, I am so happy I did!
Many people may not know this, but a lot of the sales that hit Black Friday and Cyber Monday actually last for weeks after and sometimes even get better! Once the New Year hits a lot of the sales get extra sales on top of them. For instance Express had a 50% off sale on sweaters + an extra 40% off making this fabulous ruffled sweater less than $20! Woohoo! Another time to be ready is right as Spring starts to hit because stores need to make room for all their new inventory and truly just want to get the sweaters out the door!
Knowing Where to Shop
As I was saying, knowing where to shop is half the battle especially now that I gave you my secrets on when to shop. Most all stores at this point have sales during the holidays and usually keep them going through the New Year followed by Spring, but not all sales are made equally. I've found that the huge retailers can seem to have great sales, but from experience I think you really need to dig to find the best ones. Macy's is always one of my favorites for sweaters, but you truly need to have the time to search the racks. I did pick up this Free People sweater from Macy's and usually have pretty good luck with finding great staple pieces from amazing brands.
Once you get out of the hug retailers its much easier to shop happily while still getting crazy good deals. One of my favorites (like mentioned above) is Express. This year I think they're sales were the very best yet and seriously just kept getting better. A second favorite that can still be found in malls is H&M and I totally hit the jackpot here! The number 1 reason I love this store is because the prices are always good and the quality matches! The number 2 reason is the fact that when H&M does have a sale it does it big. Racks on racks of $5-20 sweaters some of which just hit the floors last month... I mean, you can't beat that!
If you're against going to the malls (which I know so many people are these days) then they one place you need to check out for my favorite sweaters under $50 is ASOS. I have raved about them before and I seriously won't stop! This year ASOS had a 70% off sale on sweaters (+ more) and it lasted for weeks! I love them so much because the items are constantly trendy and constantly changing/updating. How can you beat that? The best part is even when there isn't a sale going on the prices are always too good to beat! No matter where you shop, this is the time to find your favorite sweaters under $50!
