Shopping the discount stores: The Outnet


This is where items that didn’t sell on luxury site Net a Porter go to find their eventual homes. For that reason, the prices are higher, but so too is the quality of options. This silk blouse from Stella McCartney, for instance, has the most gorgeous floral print.

A pretty little diamond starburst that’d brighten up any layered necklace situation.

A cool silk charmeuse blouse in such a good watermelon pink.

I like that this denim skirt has a flattering A-line cut.

These padded leather sandals from Paul Smith are just the cutest.

I own and love Nili Lotan’s Cambre jacket, because it’s kind of the perfect combination of a blazer and an army jacket—casual but polished too. It’s not available here in many sizes (alas, this is true of so many good items on the Outnet) but maybe you’ll get lucky.

These skinny leather pants look like they’d age really well.

You don’t often see Tod’s driving loafers marked down; I also like this taupe suede pair.

I know this reversible shearling jacket is completely out of season, but I it was too good not to include.

A gorgeous pleated silk crepe top in a lipstick-rich red.

I just think these multicolored leather slides are the coolest.

And finally, these leather flip flops add a nice little amount of height.

5 Thoughts on Shopping the discount stores: The Outnet

    Once again, saved by lack of sizes!

    I love the way that Stella McCartney blouse is styled with the bonkers doily shorts and “combat” boots! If I were a few decades younger… And there must be some disturbance in the fashion force because this vegetarian animal lover is LOVING that shearling jacket. And the Paul Green sandals. And, awkward segue here, I finally received my DevaCurl Moisture Seal spray which I used this morning––it is 81 degrees and 66% humidity and even though I’ve spent a good deal of time outside pulling weeds and walking dogs I have no frizz. And my hair is not sticky.

      It’s SO humid today! Adding Deva Curl Moisture Seal to my list! Loving that Nili Lotan jacket, but alas, sold out in most larger sizes. I find a lot of good jeans on The Outnet.

    Over the years, I have bought many pieces from the OutNet that I still have and love (lots of DVF dresses–I was obsessed for a while). Lucked out on an 80% off sale where I scored a Antik Batik dress that I use as a beach coverup for $45 back in May. It can be hit or miss but worth checking out from time to time.
