Happy Birthday, Dear Outnet: Celebrating Five Years of Designer Deals

-------

“Coulda, woulda, shoulda.” Thanks to The Outnet, that phrase rarely leaves our lips—when it comes to shopping regrets, at least. The designer discount site operated by Net-a-Porter brings you the best pieces from seasons past, meaning not only can you snag those Alexander Wang shoes you sorely missed out on, but you can get them for a bargain, too. To celebrate its fifth birthday, The Outnet is reissuing some of its top designers’ greatest hits—think Alexander McQueen’s patent bow clutch, J.W. Anderson’s paisley top, and Roland Mouret’s iconic wool dress. It also put together an adorable video, above, debuting exclusively here on Style.com. Chic shoppers like Alexandra Richards, Leigh Lezark, Garance Doré, Leandra Medine (who just filmed her own video series for Style.com), and Harley Viera-Newton discuss their favorite pieces while grooving to our new favorite jam, “Love Letters” by Metronomy. “Balmain for me is the Parisian brand,” Doré insists. As for Viera-Newton, “Oscar de la Renta is the dream” and Jason Wu is for “the confident, strong woman.” If you want to look “adorable,” Lezark suggests Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s pastel pencil skirt. We’ll take it from the experts. The full collection will be available only at TheOutnet.com starting April 29—killer dance moves not included.

Outnet

For the next five days, The Outnet is running a master sale in which some pieces are up to 85 percent off. What better excuse to indulge? I’m currently lusting over Balmain’s cashmere and cotton fuchsia top (remember, fuchsia is the color for Fall ’14); Victoria Beckham’s denim pants in a dark wash (at $57, how can I resist?); Christopher Kane’s modern LBD; Pierre Hardy’s two-tone sandals; and Roksanda Ilincic’s color-blocked dress. These items will definitely get my wardrobe ready for spring.

Balmain fuchsia top, $251; Victoria Beckham denim pants, $57; Christopher Kane wool crepe dress, $379; Pierre Hardy sandals, $168; and Roksanda Ilincic dress, $341. All available at TheOutnet.com.
