Out of 18,000 Net-a-Porter Sale Items, I Think These 12 Will Sell Out First


(Image credit: @styleidealist)

Public service announcement! The Net-a-Porter summer sale has finally arrived. Not that I spend my spring counting down to the big event or anything… But look, here at Who What Wear UK we're fashion editors who love a good hack for finding designer pieces at the best prices. What can I say?

I'm not talking just a measly selection, either. There are over 18,000 items in the sale right now, all with up to 50% off. And in these early days, there's still some good stock left. That might seem overwhelming, but trust me when I say there are some serious gems to be found. From beautiful in-season dresses courtesy of cult brands like Matteau and Taller Marmo, ideal for that upcoming holiday or wedding, to timeless classics that are like gold dust to get hold of in autumn/winter. Think The Row wide-leg trousers and tote bags and Manolo Blahnik loafers.

Clicking through hundreds of pages of products can be time consuming, though. So I thought it might help to see a small edit of what a fashion editor thinks is really worth investing in during the sale. Since it's my job, I've done the hard work for you and scrolled through all 312 pages of sale buys and shared the 12 items below that, in my expert opinion, will be the first to sell out. Mainly because they're so good, I could hardly believe they were on sale in the first place. They also happen to be the items I've added to my own Net-A-Porter basket to try right now (I take my own advice, naturally).

Aside from these 12 cult items, you'll also find everything else on my current Net-A-Porter wish list that I'm considering investing in for 2023 and beyond. Keep scrolling to have a nosy at my favourite sale buys and more of the designer items that I think are really smart forever buys.
