Plastic Island launched its line of well-tailored-yet-affordable pieces in the U.S. in 2007, and has since made a splash with Hollywood A-listers like Anne Hathaway and publications like <i>Elle</i> and <i>WWD</i>. The brand's on-trend creations boast a European sensibility, and are named for fashion It-girls like Erin Wasson, Hanneli Mustaparta, Karli Kloss, et al. With an array of silk trapeze tops, neutral sleeveless dresses, and further of-the-moment styles, we think these clothes are dignified of their muses.
Want to score of-the-moment styles by some of your favorite designer names for less? This mix of easy-to-layer pieces makes dressing for the season simple. Keep your eye out for cashmere cardigans, tailored pants, and sleek jackets, along with frock styles ranging from work-appropriate to date-night-only.
While perfect for the tropics, this sexy, summery assortment would feel right at home in plenty of other hip locales. Striking colors and eye-popping prints give many of these mini sheaths, rompers and tees their red-hot appeal. In other cases, it’s all about the draping, as seen in dolman-sleeve poncho dresses, swingy studded halter-tops and silky jumpsuits with wide legs and blouson bodices.
From draped jersey numbers to timeless shifts to sexy minis, the dresses here need little more than a fall boot and opaque tights to be perfect for the season. Choose from your favorite designers, like Alberta Ferretti, Catherine Malandrino, and Charlotte Ronson, and make sure you snag your favorites fast — each frock is the only one of its kind left on Gilt.
Every woman needs a secret style weapon in her closet, and the sheath is our go-to for looking polished in an instant—and staying that way, no matter the weather. And thanks to fashion's ongoing love of all things ladylike and '60s-inspired, amazing options are everywhere. Choose a sheath from this classy selection, and dress it up or down with pumps or flats. For cooler nights (or the office AC), layer on a belted cardigan.
