If you're anything like us — we're extremely budget-conscious and almost never purchase apparel at full price — you may know Net-a-Porter as that designer e-commerce site you will never be able to afford to shop from. But today, Net-a-Porter's outlet site called the Outnet launches. The items on this site are still expensive, but you have a far greater likelihood of being able to afford something here than on Net-a-Porter. Labels include Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Derek Lam, Diane Von Furstenberg, Phillip Lim, Jill Stuart, and Oscar de la Renta. The Outnet is like a never-ending online sample sale, which is great, because you don't have to leave your chair to shop, or throw elbows with the girl trying to swipe the last dress in your size. However, a lot of the stuff is a few seasons old, so you'll want to search for things that are relevant and won't go out of style. Approach shopping here as you would the first day of the Barneys Warehouse Sale: Buy things you think are a worthy investment or that you think will sell out quickly. Like a sample sale, prices on this site will probably go down on items that aren't selling. Here are a few pieces for sale on the site right now that we like:
Diane Von Furstenberg Jacinta pencil dress
Discount: 50 percent
Why we like it: If you have to dress office-y for work, this is a great piece. It won't go out of style and it's under $175. Plus, DVF dresses tend to do lovely things for a woman's figure.
Oscar de la Renta bouclé two-piece suit
Discount: 50 percent
Why we like it: Okay, we know this is $1,500, but if you can swing it, this is a great suit. You will always have it and it's great for those Ü ber-office-y offices.
Jill Stuart Charlene voile dress
Discount: 60 percent
Why we like it: For under $200, this is a good basic spring piece that will go from spring to spring, year to year.
3.1 phillip lim single-breasted box jacket
Discount: 50 percent
Why we like it: A good blazer is always worth the investment. This is a pretty good buy.
Tibi Penelope leather sandals
Discount: 70 percent
Why we like them: These are great summer flats. The Swarovski jewel embellishments make them a little special. Plus, they're a great buy at $129. That may seem a tad high for sandals, but if you owned these, you'd wear them all the time.
MINT jodi arnold contrast-skirt dress
Discount: 40 percent
Why we like it: This dress is pretty. We kind of want to buy it right now. You could style it a few different ways with jackets and tights and such. Also, it's a good day-to-night piece.
