Best Bet: Kova & T’s Pleated Dress


United Bamboo's clothes are classic and elegant; unfortunately, prices for the breezy threads can run a little steep. If you've been eyeing the label's Smocking dress ($260 at Gargyle; right), you'll be psyched to see this approximation by Urban Outfitters' KNT by Kova & T line (left). Both pleated cotton frocks have a simple, feminine look that can be dressed up for work or paired with flats on the weekend. But for those saving up for summer trips, Kova & T's style can be had for a fraction of the price.

KNT by Kova & T Pleated Mary dress, $98 at Urban Outfitters or online.
