I thought it would be an interesting task to shop sustainable with £100 @ NET-A-PORTER (that’s approx $127.39). I have a NET-A-PORTER gift card burning a hole in my pocket since my birthday back in December. I’m always NAP browsing but the pieces I truly love are way over my budget.
So this got me thinking does NET-A-PORTER cater for shoppers like myself with a limited budget and who are trying to shop sustainably? Well, the answer is yes and no.
Since starting to write this post the NET-A-PORTER USA SALE has started so it’s definitely worth having a browse!
Now if you’re looking for luxurious beauty products they do have a fantastic selection of organic lotions & potions. Or if you’re wondering where you can buy sustainable lingerie, you can here! But when it comes to my beloved denim (sustainable I’m talking about) I’m afraid NET-A-PORTER is missing a trick as they do have sustainable denim but not at an entry price point within my £100 budget!
If you’re a US reader then I’d recommend you hurry and snap up this J Brand’s signature ‘Maria jean’ which is part of the label’s first-ever sustainable collection now $115 in the sale! (sale not available in the UK as yet!).
So after a lot of browsing ( note to NET-A-PORTER you need a sustainable section, maybe call it (‘SUSTAIN-A-PORTER’), I have handpicked the pieces below that fall into my £100 budget (using voucher – thanks Mum) and that is sustainable!
OMG! I don’t know if this is a coincidence or if NAP read this post but they now have a NET SUSTAIN Edit where we can shop all their sustainable brands in one place – I’m feeling chuffed!

So you may ask what will I buy? Well, I really like this tie-dyed organic T by Ninety Percent A London-based label that vows to distribute 90% of its profits between those who make each collection happen and four charities.
While I was browsing or working whichever way you want to look at it I saw this pair of V-10 metallic-trimmed leather and mesh sneakers by sustainable/fair trade brand Veja. I still have money left to spend so it would be rude not to! Right.
