Summer, summer, summer.
The semester just started, yet college students want to scream.
Shopping for the summer can be so hectic. Though it is winter, so many stores are already sending out summer deals and winter clothes are now on sale. Everyone gets so excited around this time and feels like there is actually hope that the bitter cold will finally end.
Some may think it is too early to start summer shopping. Others, not so much.
“It is never too early; this is the time they start putting out stuff,” Noelia Ramirez, freshman criminology major, said.
“I already bought a swim suit from Hollister and Target. I even bought some summer clothes over winter break,” Sarah Mccarron, freshman health and wellness major, said.
The earlier the better. Some of the best clothes get put out at this time of year and there is no need to wait for a restock.
Many women like to buy their clothes early due to certain sizes selling out really fast.
According to an article on tandfonline, the average American woman wears between a 16 and 18. This may sound strange because these sizes have the least amount of clothes which would cause more of a demand. Some of these sizes are even considered plus size in most stores.
In places like Hollister, the store does not sell every size, especially sizes for bigger girls.
It can also be cheaper to start shopping early. When spring comes around, everyone wants to start summer shopping. When everyone starts shopping prices go up because the stores know the clothes are needed.
“If you are ready for summer or not it is never too early to shop. You never have enough clothes,” Brielle Toff, freshman communication major said.
