Sears Teams Up with NEXT UK

Thanks to a tip from reader Jacqueline, we've learned that Sears is now carrying clothing from NEXT, the UK's largest fashion e-tailer. "Any female who has ever shopped for clothes in the UK will know this super high street fashion staple which I just love!" says Jacqueline. The Next for Sears collection includes fashion forward pieces for men, women and children including accessories and shoes. Key pieces are also available in petite, tall and plus size.

Prices range from $38 for a striped camel sweater dress; to $48 for tweed shorts; to $60 for a navy fisherman cardigan

This is really interesting news, especially in light of the fact that earlier another reader alerted us to some New Look UK jackets turning up at Target; then we reported Sears would be teaming up with French Connection to launch a line called UK Style next spring. Plus, Topshop is opening their second US store in my original hometown of Chicago! (Something I had hoped for since my first visit to their NYC store, even if they are overpriced.)

Can we say British invasion or what?!

On a side note, if you were saddened by the closure of La Redoute, NEXT for Sears might be the next best thing.
