End of Season Sales Guide

So, now's the time to grab some classics on sale OR some major trends that are sure to be lit next Fall at trend-friendly pricing. For the trends, I've turned an eye toward the Pre-Fall and Fall 2018 runways to be sure.

Also, note that all "Sale Must Haves" at Net-a-Porter are an additional 20% off today.

Here is a quick list:

Denim: The trend in denim is definitely light wash or black, 100% cotton, straight leg, and cropped. Take a look at these from Frame, Vince, Current/Elliott, and The Row.

Sweaters: The chunky sweater (like the one by Filippa K for Fall 2018 in the lead image) is here to stay -- for at least a couple more seasons. Hint: you have to bust out a half-tuck with a chunky sweater or it just doesn't work. Try these by Mansur Gavriel or these by Oscar de la Renta, Co, Isabel Marant, Victoria Beckham, and Chloé.

Overcoat: Anything belted in wool will be on fleek for Fall 2018 and (also a classic), like these by Paul & Joe and Joseph, or this one by Polo. I am also crazy about this savage hottie by Paule Ka and this faux fur fun by Scripted.

Shoes: For a shoe sale, I always have my eyes out for major workhorse classics that are good to circulate in. Grab classics like these kitten heel mules by Vetements, chunk heel pumps like these by Aquatalia, these chic booties by Loeffler Randall or elegant and sublime mules by Mansur Gavriel. Also, consider some high-end fun add-ins that are often otherwise unavailable, like these great mules by Prada and Charlotte Olympia (perfect for the holidays), these velvet mules by The Row, or these fabulous slides by Trademark.

Bags: I hesitate to buy a bag at the end of the season, because this is often the home for failed trends. Having said that, I think this one by Simon Miller is solid and good deal as this this fab little basket by Sophie Anderson.

If you've decide to lean in on the white-ish gray bootie, like the one that dominated Filippa K's Fall 2018 runway, but you want them on sale, you'll have to wait until Nordstrom's pre-season sale this summer OR, there are a ton available now, but you'll definitely have to pay full price. Like these and these are awesome but def not on sale. In fact, I am thinking they may be on my "must have" list for Spring, because you can wear them now with flirty skirts for spring and then again all Fall with dark, cropped denim and slacks and pleated skirts (like this girl here, at Filippa K).
