Best Bet: Walkway Shorts

With his new six-piece line for J.Crew, Prabal Gurung brought back the bow — at a price. His tied-up tanks, dresses, and pants range from $198 to $450. These slouchy-chic shorts let you embrace a similar look without blowing your budget. The sash waist and linen fabric dress this pair up, making them fit for warm-weather occasions where denim falls short. Pair them with heels and a silk tank for work or a V-neck tee and flat sandals at night.
