Let’s be honest, when it comes to splashing £1,500, are you more likely to buy ONE designer dress or jet off on a two-week holiday? I certainly know which I'd rather do. Which is why it’s a total killer gushing over NET-A-PORTER’s dreamy new-in drops every week. When it comes to NET-A-PORTER, it's all about hunting out those under £500 pieces, but in between hectic jobs and the many after work pub sessions, who really has the time? Which is why I've done it for you.
We all want that 'OMG, are they Gucci?' moment, which is why NET-A-PORTER's deals are so worth it. When looking for classic high end designers, it's all about narrowing down your search to suit your budget, take Gucci's Princetown plain loafer (£450), for example. When splashing out on a big brand, always look for something timeless that you'll treasure for years to come. Bags and shoes are a safe option.
Of course, NET-A-PORTER is also brilliant at sourcing all the coolest new ‘IT’ brands and, if I’m being honest, I am all about buying into one of these - like Attico, Rejina Pyo or A.W.A.K.E - because they're actually affordable. Look for cool a-symmetric shirts or a statement trouser of the moment - something that you can incorporate into your own wardrobe and wear almost everyday.
If it's a special gift you're after (it can be for yourself, of course!), you need to head straight to the jewellery section. Full of the coolest brands to invest in now, you’re guaranteed to find a fashionable keepsake, such as Maria Black’s diamond single drop earring.
So, if you don’t know where to start when buying into the coolest designer brands of the moment, shop our edit of the best NET-A-PORTER deals, all for under £500.
