Shop The "Clearance" Section For Fabulous Deals On Fall Coats!

It's still muggy outside but thanks to the arrival of all the pre-fall collections, I'm already looking forward to comfy cashmere and cocoa on cool, crisp days. And no bugs. Heaven! But even better than checking out the new merch is scoping out cider weather styles at all those end-of-season sales and final markdown deals.

My mother used to start shopping for back-to-school clothes for me and my sister practically the day after Christmas and was done upgrading our winter wardrobes while it was still hot enough to be playing outside with our Willy the Waterbug sprinkler and drinking Kool-Aid.

It drove me INSANE, but the off-season is the perfect time to hunt for deeply discounted classic pieces to add to your wardrobe and sample here-today, gone tomorrow trends without blowing your budget.

Stretch your shopping dollars even more by checking out the "final sale" or "last chance" sections of your favorite sites; often merch is priced at 70% off or more.

Check out some of the awesome outerwear that's up for grabs in the clearance section:

Converse Denim Trench ,, $17.48 (was $49.99)

4-button Cape,, $12.49 (was $49.99)

Mossimo 3/4-Sleeve Wool Coat,, $11.24 (was $44.99)

Xhilaration Crusader Wool Coat,, $11.24 (was $44.99)

Ok, so this coat might not meet many people's definition of cheap or affordable but, HELL-O it's Phillip Lim. On sale. Trust, you'll wear it forever. 3.1 Phillip Lim Boxy Double-breasted Coat,, $342.50 (was $685)

Mossimo Wool Cape,, $11.24 (was $49.99)

Alix Belted Coat, Delias, $49.99 (was $99.50)

Woman's Cropped Peacoat,, $25 (was $34.50)

God, don't you hate it when your mother is right?

What about you guys? Are you shopping for fall or SPF? Which fall coat is your favorite? Should I splurge on a pricey one or save my nickels and dimes for all the insane shoes I've had my eye on?
