The Little Prints
Although its tiny pattern is a nod to nature, this easy-fitting stretch-silk frock (Ann Taylor, $168) also appeals to urbanites like Bell (How to Make It in America is set in New York, where she grew up). The dress is wrinkle-proof and versatile; you could even wear it under a jacket for work. A downsized print looks almost like a solid, so you can afford larger-scale jewelry, like exuberant flower pins (Bando) or a huge ring (Gara Danielle). Shoes, Edmundo Castillo for Tommy Hilfiger.
