It’s easy to get carried away in the sales, buying those one off pieces you so
kind of desperately need. It’s only when you return home, open those pearly gates (your closet doors) and realise damn it, you’ve nothing to go with those insane new culottes. That’s why although sales are super tempting, shopping smartly can get you discounted designer pieces all year round. Not a whiff of hassle or regret.
That’s why I love The Outnet. Owned by the Net A Porter group it’s the hub of sophisticated fashion at knocked down prices. There’s a wealth of designers all for around 50% off! It’s a site I trawled for bridesmaids dresses. One that I check every day for new handbag additions and one where most of my designer shoes come from. Don’t worry if you’ve never had a masterclass in trends or styling, right now there are three key trends I’m loving. Here’s my edit of the best buys for the office, for military inspired looks and Summer whites.
Whether you’re more in to your structured silhouettes or the fluidity of silk, colourful pops can elevate any drab outfit. I adore asymmetric hemlines, one shoulder tops and stand out designer bags. Don’t be afraid of trying new styles. I love the length of this striped Theory skirt – team with some luxe mules or pointy flats.
The military trend is never going to go away so buying discounted designer is a wise investment long term. I adore a basic khaki dress teamed with a statement jacket or pair of heels. You might have seen my previous post where I teamed a military jacket with a plain t-shirt dress. It’s easy to go OTT with this trend so choose your basics wisely.
Fluid silhouettes of chiffon make my Summer wardrobe. There’s no denying that white lightens your spirit either. I love mixing textures and light layers. A chunky shoe always adds an edge to the ethereal effect to make it less girly too.
What will you be buying from The Outnet? Xx
