Shopping the Net-a-Porter Sale: Nine Wardrobe Workhorses To Buy Right Now

Net-a-Porter's having a major, up-to-50-percent-off sale right now. On one hand, it could be a decent excuse to invest in a digitally-printed Mary Katrantzou cocktail dress, a pair of Charlotte Olympia kitty flats or something else fancy-fashion-designer-y at half the outrageous cost. But since that price tag would still be pretty hefty, I'd argue taking a different approach.

Instead of splurging on a single, over-the-top designer piece, it might be smarter to sift through the sale for those workhorse pieces you need in your closet anyway, and find ones from contemporary labels so you might even be able to buy a few of them. Like, say, the navy blazer you need for work (40 percent off at $118), or the white summer dress you want for barbecues (30 percent off at $262). With that in mind, I rounded up those and some of the sale's best, most necessary pieces below; click through to shop them before exploring the full sale here

Basic Blazer

You know you need one. And if you have one, you probably need another.


file

Party Shoes

Wear them with neutrals or contrast them with a dress in another bright color. Either way, you need party shoes that are punchy but won't pigeonhole you into what you can wear them with.


file

Double Duty Skirts

Everyone needs versatile skirts like these, which you can swing from weekend day to work day just by changing your shoes and tossing a blazer over that tank top.

Easy White Dress

You'll want to wear it to all your summer parties.


file

Everyday Denim

Not too low-rise and not too skinny-legged, which makes them super-flattering on most body types.


file

Versatile Belt

It does double duty as a both a hip and waist belt, so you can use it to cinch a swingy cocktail dress or to polish up a plain old jeans-and-tee look.


file

Black Clutch

With a texture that makes it slightly cooler than a simple leather one, but still just as wear-with-everything flexible.


file

Statement Earrings

Lifesavers when you just can't figure out why the simple cocktail dress you're wearing feels sorta ho-hum. Adding something like these often makes all the difference.


file

Striped Shirts

Navy and black stripes are great too, but red's our favorite.
