Refer to the Outnet for spring looks without the spring price tag. Plus: Valentine's Day boutiques, fashion books, and much more.

The Outnet

Spring season is upon us but after all the January sales shopping, the new season's prices seem a bit steep. Enter the Outnet: the discount designer portal has compiled pieces from its archive according to some of the biggest trends for spring from harem pants to sleeveless jackets and mid-heeled shoes.


The Outnet's sister site is giving away an online shopping spree worth $25,000 in celebration of its one millionth order.


The sample sale site doesn't only host designer boutiques (Jil Sander, Badgley Mischka, Judith Leiber) this week but also one for fashion-inspired books from publisher Assouline - highlights are Hidden Underneath: A History of Lingerie or Dolce Vita Style, a chronicle of Rome's flamboyant 1950s. Valentine's Day-themed sales include lingerie by Kiki de Montparnasse and chocolates from Vosges Haut Chocolat and Knipschildt Chocolatier.


More intimates can be found from La Fee Verte at Ideeli as well as outer- and active wear by Calvin Klein - a subtle suggestion to lose the remaining holiday weight before slipping on the sweet next-to-nothings?
