NEW YORK & COMPANY
Then: Inexpensive, unadventurous
Under a new design team, the label now delivers runway style for a song: little leather jackets, boyfriend blazers—and this snakeskin-print sheath (New York & Company Collection, $98). "It's got color and texture," says Sang A. Gleaming accents—a patent leather clutch (Sang A), mesh belt (Alberta Ferretti), gold bangles (Melody Rodgers)—add luster. Ring, available at Jennifer Miller.
