The best pieces under $125 at the Net a Porter sale

16

Here’s what’s good about waiting a little while to post about this sale: markdowns are steep. And here’s what is bad about it: most pieces are sold out in at least some sizes. But maybe you’ll get lucky!  Like with this cool camo tee from ATM.

This nicely minimal cotton twill shirtdress looks desperately versatile.

I dig the 70s graphics on and rosy hue of this tee.

A silk camo cami is such an unexpected alternative to a black one.

A gathered cotton poplin blouse that will be perfection with jeans come springtime.

This cotton silk top is similar to the one above, but maybe a tiny bit slinkier.

The roomy cut on these army pants appeals.

And I’m loving these boyfriend cut cropped jeans, because they’re nice and slouchy.

And speaking of slouchy, check out this linen shirt (which also comes in—and is almost sold in—white).

A washed satin skirt that’s the just-right amount of sexy.

I feel like I would wear this gauze checked shirt constantly once summer rolls along.

The loud, graphic print on this georgette skirt is just so good. I’d pair it with something simple, like a white tee.

A silk blouse in the prettiest shade of coral.

These wool-twill pants have a menswearish appeal.

Such a sweet little silk crepe de chine top from cult label Doen—it’d be as perfect with jeans as a skirt.

The magenta hue of this velour sweatshirt is just too good.

You know I love a polo shirt, and this one has such excellently retroish appeal.

    Sorry, Jenny! I didn’t see your response before I commented to CW.

    I’m crazy about the LOOK of those FRAME army green cargo pants, but is anyone else like me and hasn’t worn pants without any stretch for eons? I’m not sure I’d find them comfy. And comfort is everything! Any suggestions are greatly appreciated and will land you good karma. 😊

      I have been wearing jeans without stretch this past year. My only tip is to buy them in a size where you’re comfortable right off the bat – baggy and loose is in!

      No worries, Val! The comments stack in a strange asynchronous way, I find. I completely agree with you re: the need for stretch (sorry @Mary). I spent the weekend trying to make the most perfect pair of high waisted non-stretch jeans work on my body, and ended up almost in tears thinking “I’m too fat for jeans,” which is nonsense for anyone.

        I can’t stand being uncomfortable for a second! I’ve probably sized up too much.

    I love that washed satin skirt. It would be in my cart this minute if a) it was still in my size or b) I thought anyone would ever see me from the waist down again or c) if my stomach wasn’t insisting on displaying a Pandemic Pooch (popovers will save us all). Sidenote: Are there super lightweight scarves one can wear attractively around ones sagging neck? As winter fades and my neck is more visible I am searching for ways to hide the unsightly skin droops and wrinkles without wearing a turtleneck. And without looking too Auntie Mame.

      My scarf trick for summer, because I live in Satan’s armpit, is to haunt Ebay for silk Pucci scarves. They’re not typically full-size, but come in the happiest mod prints. Cute with some white painter jeans and a navy Cuyana tee or similar. You can put a pop of color next to your face, or if you get too hot, sash your jeans or tie to your purse handle.

      Have you tried the Chan Luu cashmere scarves? They’re super lightweight and so chic!

      Love your thinking about the scarves! Would love to see some ideas for that!

        Isn’t that what the GOACA fave Chan Luu scarf suited for? If that doesn’t work, try scarf-shop.com. Either their lightweight organic cotton long scarves or their fine organic cotton (voile) small squares might suit. As I can’t bear anything around my neck, I’m just going have to let the neck avalanche happen in plain view.

          I do have a Chan Luu, but it’s too hot for spring/summer wear. I was thinking of something super lightweight that would cover, but not suffocate––more along the lines of voile. Maybe I’m looking for the unicorn of scarves. I should be more accepting of my aging body.

            Literally in the middle of the night I thought of you, CW, and wanted to suggest Graymarket. Might not be your aesthetic, but they have lightweight printed scarves that I think are quite pretty.

      I adore that skirt too but they seemed to be out if most sizes.

    That army green twill shirtdress looked great to me, but upon further review it is both 100% polyester and dry clean only.

    Just bought the cargo pants.
    Hopefully they fit. I’ve been eating my anxiety… I feel like they will be aces with my Wrangler denim jacket that Kim also recommended!
    Brad Pitt was wearing the same jacket in “Once upon a time in Hollywood”. That movie was definitely well dressed.
