’Tis the season for sales, and two of the best are from The Outnet and Net-a-Porter, where you can get the designer pieces you’ve been craving all year at a fraction of the normal price. The Net-a-Porter sale only lasts three weeks, but it’s worth checking back daily, since items go on clearance toward the end. Moreover, everything — from straight-off-the-runway clothing, to bags and shoes — is up to 50 percent off. The best thing about this sale is that you can find discount designer pieces, by Tom Ford, The Row, Miu Miu, Valentino, and Proenza Schouler, that are hard to come by elsewhere. Scroll down below to see our 21 favorite things on sale.
Tom Ford Bucket Bag
A chic update to the bucket bag is best served by Tom Ford in this small metallic leather version. The supple leather slouches perfectly and it’ll add a little brightness to your dull winter wardrobe.
A.P.C. Leather Bag
If you’re looking for a quality everyday bag, this one from A.P.C. is just the right in-between size: It’s not too small or too clunky, you can adjust the strap to the length of your choice, and the gold hardware is a nice touch.
Proenza Schouler Bag
A classic bag shape with a cool contemporary look, Proenza Schouler’s signature whipstitched bag is a purchase you won’t regret — especially in this neutral dove-gray leather.
Jason Wu Pants
These wool-jacquard pants from Jason Wu are a great option if you’re sick of wearing your nice black pants to work all the time. The patchwork is chic, but not overbearing.
A pair of minimalist pants like these Joseph stretch-twill trousers can easily become a staple in your closet. They’re cut to elongate legs and can be worn with heels or platform sneakers.
Goen J Pants
If you want to get in on trendy ankle-hemmed pants but also want a pair that you’ll actually wear for the next couple of years, go for ones that are impeccably tailored, like these chic pants from Goen J.
Alexander Wang Parka
Upgrade your average bomber jacket with this satin version from Alexander Wang. It’s cut from durable army-green tweed and has a cool cropped and layered back panel.
Max Mara Shearling Coat
There really isn’t anything as plush or luxurious as a Max Mara shearling coat. This one’s practical for everyday use, but you’ll feel like a million dollars every single time you wear it.
A Net-a-Porter and J.Crew exclusive, this stunning faux-fur coat is a purchase you won’t regret. The blue and white stripes are a fun, contrasting pattern, and the coat is fully lined with a slightly loose fit so it can go over the chunkiest of sweaters.
A graphic pattern makes normal ankle boots a lot more fun. These Pierre Hardy boots are eclectic but still have a polished appeal. They’ll look great with pants and a blouse or jeans and a T-shirt.
You might not think python boots are a worthy investment, but Alexandre Birman’s snakeskin boots have become their own version of a ‘neutral’ pattern — you can wear them with virtually any color. They’re a great way to elevate your sweater-and-jeans routine.
If you’re looking for a practical boot that will last all winter but will also afford you some height, these Tod’s boots are just what you need. They’re as durable as most winter boots, but the contrasting laces and platform heel make them a chicer option than most.
Funny enough, Martiniano originally created this glove shoe for men but created an instant classic when the brand transformed it into a slipperlike version for women. These heels are made by hand, and the gold leather is a great option for the holidays.
You can never really have enough cable-knit sweaters, and this quality version from J.Crew is half the normal price.
This Moroccan-inspired sweater by Altuzarra is straight from the runway, and its playful claret fringing is a tasteful way to shake up your sweater routine.
Marc Jacobs Sweater
A cozy cashmere sweater in black and white monochromatic checks? Yes, please.
A silk-lined mini dress that’s both playful and professional. A no-brainer for when you want to make a statement.
Michael Kors Dress
You’ve probably seen this embellished Michael Kors dress on the red carpet plenty of times already, because it’s a trendy and comfortable option for holiday parties in addition to being a celeb favorite. The metallic brocade is festive and the polished silver rings add a mod touch.
A decadent printed dress that you can wear effortlessly throughout winter and spring. The print is timeless and the ruffled hemline adds nice definition.
A silk skirt might not be the first thing you run to buy during a winter sale, but this one’s worth it — the satin is so luxurious, the length hits at the calves so it’s not too short or too long, and it’s cut on the bias for a figure-skimming drape.
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Skirt
A skirt that you can have fun wearing during the day with a simple blouse or T-shirt and dress up at night with a blouse. The mix of velvet and sequins isn’t for everyone, but makes it so much more interesting than the plain pencil skirt.
