Close your eyes and imagine the fashion landscape of the late ’90s and early’ 90s, when aesthetics ranged from mall girls’ platforms and minis to all-black goth outfits for kids. A particularly strong style sensibility of this period was the preppy look; remains from the 80s with a modern twist, preparation is less of a trend than a classic way of life. Until then, if you want to dress BCBG, Nautica is the place to shop, and the brand has a clearance section with deals of up to 70%.
Nautica’s clearance section is full of gems, and while there are plenty of shorts and t-shirts to stock up on and tuck away for next summer, the discounts aren’t just for off-season clothing. Buyers can save on pants, sweaters, and even outerwear right before the colder months. In addition to the high-preparation Nautica classics, there are quilted vests, rain jackets and super-warm quilted coats.
There are also accessories on sale, like this leather strap that will keep relevant vacation travel documents close at hand at the airport. And speaking of travel, there are plenty of pieces in this particular section to create the ultimate travel outfit, like this comfy knit sweater and those striped sweatpants to wear anywhere.
Perhaps the best deal you can find in the Nautica clearance section is this faux fur puffer jacket, which is over $ 150 off. Only limited sizes are available (a classic liquidation section’s woe) but if it works for you then the savings are unparalleled. Our other clearance pick is this ribbed cardigan that goes with everything, luckily available in two colors and all sizes and down to almost $ 50. Because what’s a preppy outfit without a cardigan, right?
Shop our top picks in the Nautica clearance section below, or head over to the website and browse the savings for yourself. Classics look like these transcend trends and time, after all.
