Fashion Blog: Designer Investment Pieces Under £150. 75% Off Marni at

There's something very special about Marni, the pieces are like works of art, each one perfect and detailed, you can literally buy one piece and it remains a statement piece for years to come. Along with the bonus that with the correct care a Marni item of clothing or an accessory looks sumptuous and brand new every time you wear it. The pieces are timeless, I think of Marni as a more adventurous version of Prada. have just listed a whole dream wardrobe of Marni pieces at up to 75% off, there are some beautiful coats and jackets included. Click here to see the whole closet of Marni delights.

Couturenet's favourite investment pieces under £150 are shown below.

1. The Yellow Silk Dress. A great statement piece, perfect for this season and spring next year due to the versatile fabric and and the right shade of yellow. This is an investment piece despite its trendy colour, it is a high end designer piece at a very low price, so you will be saving a fortune by avoiding buying a current season designer dress at around £750. Also you will wear for at least a year and a half. Investment Piece: Saving money by buying out of season stock and cost per wear value.

2. The Grey Dress. A wrap style dress, perfect as a day dress with a medium width belt, the V shape at the neck is very flattering and body lengthening. A true Investment piece it would be a go-to day dress with high volume multi wear. Investment Piece: Cost per wear value.

3. Tan Leather skirts x2. Great neutral tan colour, perfect for teaming with yellow for this season and spring, but also a good wardrobe staple for many years to come down to the quality. Designer leather is better quality than high street in terms of longevity and looking brand new after multiple wears. Two styles show A-Line and pencil to suit your shape. Investment piece: Cost per wear Value and long term keeper.

4. All Seasons Sandals. These are a great style for autumn and spring, not too summery and not too wintering, the neutral colours are perfect too, dark grey or mushroom brown. They have a classic high quality style about them with a little edge, the thicker heel as a luxe look to these. Investment Piece: Cost per wear value and long term keeper.

Marni is Italian sizing so an IT38 = UK6, USA 2 & French 34, IT40 = UK8, USA 4 & French 36,  IT42 = UK10, USA 6 & French 38 and so on. Marni shoe sizes are generous.

Fashion Blog: Chloe Style At Zara

Each season I am seduced by the offerings of Chloe, watching the shows is just breathtaking and the minimalist luxe chic never fails to impress. Every piece is something we could all see ourselves wearing and will stand the test of time.

Zara are hot on the tail of Chloe each season delivering a choice of Chloe inspired pieces that capture the true essence of Chloe in quality fabrics, leathers and materials. 

I spotted these Zara Cross Over Sandal £59.99 at (Leather & Wood.) The ChloĆ© lover will recognise the seventies-ish shape, chunky wooden platform and luxe thick leather in the perfect shade of light tan. I snapped up these wooden sandals a couple of months ago and have worn them many times, they wear well with day dresses and smart jeans. I recently blogged about wearing them in a smart daytime outfit here.

They are very similar to the Chloe Leather & Wooden Sandals just in today at net-a-porter for £455. Shown below.
