Los Angeles designer Corey Lynn Calter's fall 2011 collection promises flattering cuts, eye-catching prints in seasonal colors, and a unique mix of textures. Styled with a little bit of fur, boho-chic belts, gold jewelry, and chunky socks, the pieces are clearly versatile enough to take you from the office to the weekend. We know summer has just begun, but we can't wait for these items to hit stores!

Founded last year by Karen Mulligan and Vogue editor Jillian Demling, Pret-a-surf is a line of swimwear that meets all of the modern woman's needs - fit, fashion, and function. The Pret-a-surf wearer is the woman who lies on the beach in a sensuous bikini all day and then rocks a couture gown at night. The swimwear line keeps her looking fabulous whether lying poolside or competing in the waves! Here are some of our favorite looks from the summer 2011 collection, available online at Shopbop and at several other stores


The way the gold chain contrasts with the embroidered cotton pendant is what makes this necklace really cool. The bright pops of red make it the perfect accessory to dress up a neutral tee on casual days.

Neon is still all the rage this summer, and we can't wait to wear it everywhere from the beach to nights out in the city this season. The Grasshopper neon green leather bag by Meredith Wendell for Of a Kind is bound to stand out and turn some heads, but it is also practical. It fits all your everyday items and has a snap-close exterior pocket and removable shoulder straps. The price tag is high at $435, but there were only 10 styles created. That means you won't see yourself coming and going all the time!greenneonbagthumb.jpg

marysolbeachbags_thumb.jpgHead to the beach in style this summer with one of Mar y Sol's fun beach bags. Not only are they on-trend, these bags give us something to feel good about. Mar y Sol collaborates with artists in New York and artisans in Madagascar to create accessories made by hand using natural, sustainably-sourced materials. Their fair trade partnerships enable families in Madagascar to gain economic independence while promoting environmental conservation. These fabulous, getaway-ready totes cost $79 to $98 at


item-79521-4c76b19126999-m.jpgThis necklace is very bold and eye-catching, but versatile at the same time. It's dressy enough for the evening but classic enough to pair down with a basic tee and jeans in the day. The piece is by AHJewelry and made from mesh chain used to create vintage jewelry during the early 20th century. The look is modernized with cool, twisted knots.

Half Pinwheel Necklace, $159 at

luuki2011thumb.pngWe are obsessing over these two dresses from Etsy seller Luuki. The bright colors and prints are amazing, and the silhouettes are edgy and unique. You definitely won't see yourself coming and going in these pieces! And did we mention that they are both under $75?
