Here at Who What Wear, we like to think of ourselves as expert shoppers. Week in and week out, our inboxes and social feeds are inundated with must-have items and new brands to check out, meaning we’re rather knowledgeable when it comes to navigating those all-important summer sales. And with the Net-a-Porter clearance in full swing (but only until 10 Aug—remember this date) and packed full of incredible designer bargains, we're sharing our team's favourite finds to help you shop the whopper sale panic-free and land an enviably chic designer wardrobe.
Scroll below to see (and shop) our team's top picks from the Net-a-Porter summer clearance sale.
"Having a chance to snap up a piece of The Row's ultra-luxe fashion loveliness for a fraction of the usual price? Count. Me. In. I've been watching these little beauties for months now, and I know that I'd wear them day in, day out, so it's time to give into my (actually quite sensible) shopping urges." — Hannah Almassi, editorial director
"I'm such a stickler for buying 'sensibly' in the sales. I know it's super boring, but if you're going to buy designer, then why wouldn't you buy something you'll wear all the time (always thinking about that cost-per-wear ratio)? For that reason, I've got my eye on this Marni shirt. It's just on the right side of a wardrobe staple, but the ruffles make it interesting enough that someone is bound to stop me in the street and ask me where I got it." — Elinor Block, assistant editor
"I'm looking for summer swimwear, and the Net-a-Porter clearance is filled with gems like this Eres halterneck swimsuit. The only question is green or red." — Emma Spedding, deputy editor
"I have two rules when sale-shopping: Buy things you loved full price but just couldn't afford, or buy classic pieces that will stand the test of time. Unfortunately, I've never spied this top before, and I'm not sure it's exactly classic, but I love it, and, well, as we all know, rules are made to be broken." — Amy Lawrenson, editorial director, Byrdie UK
"To avoid losing sight of my personal style amidst the frenzy of a good sale, I stick to buying classic pieces." — Isabel Mundigo-Moore, associate social media editor
"Leather jackets are my weakness, and I can see this super-cute 3.1 Phillip Lim biker slotting into my collection perfectly. I love the soft knitted sleeves, and it's going to look great with boots and dresses come autumn. It'll serve as the perfect pull-on to smarten up an off-duty leggings and sneakers combo, too. Total investment." — Amy Lewis, contributing editor
"I'm always on the lookout for statement pieces in the summer sales, and this Magda Butrym dress has been on my wish list for months. It's perfect for summer and great for wearing under slouchy knits with trainers in winter too, making it a bit of a wardrobe winner and well worth the spend." — Barbara McMillan, acting shopping editor
