CNN  — 

To us, there’s no better time than Labor Day to invest in a new wardrobe. For starters, the holiday signals the unofficial end of summer. That means we can look forward to colder weather that requires a more fall-appropriate wardrobe. It’s also the peak of back-to-school season, and chances are the kids in your life are also stocking up on new clothing for the start of the school year.

But of course, necessities aside, the real reason that Labor Day is the perfect time to deck out your closet is the sheer number of clothing sales. The abundance of sales makes stocking up on seasonal staples like denim, light jackets, leather boots and athletic wear more affordable than ever.

If that sounds like music to your ears, we have good news for you. Ahead, we’ve created a cheat sheet of some of the top clothing sales to shop this year.

Shop ahead for a slew of budget-friendly staples that are in need of a new home – cough, cough – your closet.
