10 Best Fashion Buys at Century 21’s Major Clearance Sale

We shopped the selection to give you the best bets.

My secret to scoring amazing designer clothes and accessories is shopping smart. This means keeping an eye on sales, taking the time to scour clearance sections, and buying swimwear even if it’s in the dead of winter. The sale I’m shopping now? Century 21’s huge clearance event, which runs through this month. You’ll get up to 75 percent off major high-end brands (Pucci, Badgley Mischka, Ann Demeuelemeester, Dolce & Gabbana) and minor-league players (Vince Camuto, Jessica Simpson). I’ve pared down the hundreds of items to my 10 faves. Here, the best of the best.

[2] It’s like jewelry for your patio. Karma Living ottoman, $66.59 (was $400). Buy it here.

[3] Nineties minimalism at its finest. Ann Demeulemeester lilac silk/woven dress, $259.73 (was $996). Buy it here.
