20 Unmissable Finds in the Net-a-Porter Sale

If there’s a time of year when you should make yourself a cup of coffee, have several hours to spare and preferably quite a lot of spare cash it’s the time when Net-a-Porter launches their sale – because frankly, if it’s fashion we’re talking about, there is no better place to shop – and there are some irresistible things to buy.

I have only touched the surface with my 20 finds, but I’m a great believer that if you’re going to buy in the fashion sales resist tat at all costs – you’ll only want to bin it later, and choose something you’re going to want to wear/use for a long time by a label you like.  This is a time when your investment should be seriously good value for money.

The Net-a-Porter Sale has only recently launched – for some items there’s a very small range of sizes but for others there’s unexpected choice….. for now.

A couple of words of advice.  Buy your size.  Don’t be tempted by that little black dress you’re going to have to diet yourself into – you may not, and then it’s a waste.  Buy the size you know you are right now and choose something you can wear out to dinner tomorrow.

Finally choose colours and styles you already love and wear – experimenting with designer brands, unless you only buy designer brands, can be another expensive mistake.

Finally 2 – If what you order doesn’t suit or you don’t think you’ll wear it for months then send it back immediately.  Buying in the sales is instant gratification, granted, but it’s so much better if it’s also instantly wearable gratification.
