Fans of Oscar de la Renta who can almost afford his main collection, but not quite, rejoice! The designer has created a second exclusive collection for Net-a-Porter's discount offshoot, The Outnet.

While more accessible than Oscar's main line, the dresses from which can easily set you back over $3,000, this isn't exactly an H&M collaboration. The dresses, jackets and tops that make up The Outnet collection are made in the same factory, using the same fabrics (mainly leftovers) and patterns from the main collection. Thus, prices range from $325 for a tank to $1,095 for a floor-length dress.

So, when you think about it, it's actually a pretty good deal. Shoppers were certainly on board: According to WWD, The Outnet sold out of half of the first collection the first day it went on sale.

Meaning if you want something from the new collection -- which we think looks pretty great -- you had better act fast. The 19-piece collection will go on sale at theoutnet.com on Dec. 17.
