1. Lines We Love: Joe Fresh
I adore this Canadian label, recently available for the first time in the U.S. It's the brainchild of Club Monaco cofounder Joe Mimran and features fashionable, well-made pieces, most under $100.

Blouse, $49, and skirt, $34; 212-366-0960.

2. Crazy For It: Geox
With shoes, "breathable" and "waterproof" are usually code for "frumpy." But these chic offerings are practical and fashion forward.

4. Hot Launch: Deesigns by Dee Ocleppo
Cleverly created by Tommy Hilfiger's wife, Dee Ocleppo, these bags feature removable, reversible coverlets, so you get two purses for the price of one. My favorite is the Mustique.

Handbag, $140;

5. Designer Collaboration: Milly and Sperry Top-Siders
Nothing is more comfortable than Sperry shoes—I wear them all summer long. With Milly's ladylike, vintage-inspired prints, you get the perfect combo of preppy and pretty.

Wedge, $195, and rose-print boat shoe, $125;

7. Lines We Love: C. Wonder
I couldn't be crazier for this home and fashion line by Chris Burch (who founded Tory Burch with his former wife). If there's a store in your area, definitely visit—you'll love the colorful classics with a twist. The best part? Most items are under $100.

Wallet, $68, tablet case, $58, and tote, $48;

9. Good News: Eloquii by The Limited
I've always been a fan of the Limited—the label offers fantastic-looking separates at a great price. I'm also always on the lookout for stylish clothes for plus-size ladies. Which is why I'm so excited about Eloquii, the Limited's new line for the curvy set. It's not the Limited's regular clothes made in larger sizes—it's a whole new collection specifically designed for women sizes 14W to 24W. Gorgeous.

Blazer, $128, top, $40, skirt, $65, belt, $40, and dress, $110;

10. Designer Collaboration: C & T Costello Tagliapietra
If you don't have an hourglass figure, a dress from the C & T boys will give you one. Now every body can try one, with their affordable new line.
