3 Summer items that you should buy right now
The weather is getting cold across the country and you know what that means...time to shop for swimwear! That's right, in the dead of winter you can get the best deals on swimsuits and other summer apparel.
Retailers are making room for the new inventory of 2011 swimwear, so it's time to snag a swimsuit from last summer's collections at a low discount price. Swimsuit styles don't change drastically from year to year, so no one will know you are wearing a suit that came out a year ago. The ruffled bikini shown here is on sale at Victoria's Secret for under $20.
Stock up on shorts right now from department stores and other retailers. Pick classic styles that you know you'll wear -- walking shorts, shorts for the gym and cotton capris.
Look for sweet deals on sandals from Endless, Zappos and other online shoe stores. Jeweled flat sandals will be in style once again this summer, as well as any kind of wedges. You can also find hot deals on high heel sandals that you can wear all year long with cocktail and evening wear.
