Back to Basics: The Net-a-Porter Essentials Boutique



  Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 7:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
I have a confession to make...I hardly own any of the basic items that most girls are supposed to own, its not that I haven't tried, I just can never find the perfect ones for me. I also never want to spend a lot of money on a basic item when I can buy a fun printed piece for less...but I will get some soon! In Net-a-Porter's latest magazine issue they highlight their 10 Essentials for a wardrobe. Those 10 items are: The shirt, the knit, the jean, the leather jacket, the classic bag, the flat, the blazer, the trench, the jersey basic, and the underpinning. [Have you noticed that I am VERY obsessed with net-a-porter?...I can't help it, ha ha]

Fortunately, Net-A-Porter has reopened their Essentials Boutique where you can find tons of great options to get your perfect 10 items! Unfortunately, Net-a-Porter is too expensive for me (usually), but that doesn't stop me from at least looking for some inspiration in the items they show! Whats great about most of these pieces is that you can pair them with trendier items for a great look! (click the images to go to the product page)

Of course this is the more expensive side of things, you can certainly find similar pieces for a lot less at stores like ASOS, H&M, American Eagle and more ! Which is where I will get mine until I have more money to invest in designer pieces, but I strive to own these since they will last much longer.

  7. I love that black purse and the leather coat. I'm the same as you, there are several basic wardrobe pieces that I'm missing but I make too pretty good without them until I can find them at a decent price!

  11. Haha, I don't have any of these "staples" either! Definitely something I need to check out!

  12. I agree with you--I think it's better to invest in the staples so you don't have to replace them all the time.

  27. I agree, look for quality in your basics and staple wardrobe pieces.Its worth it! you will mix and match them over and over. They are virtually timeless and seasonless. You hit the nail on the head! Beautiful blog..your so refreshing!

  29. Oh my gosh, me too! I always talk about the importance of having basics...but I myself have none! It's so hard to find good investment pieces, that are affordable at the same time. But anyway, you've chosen some great finds here!
