WHAT: Ninaki Mini Contessa ring
WHY: L.A.-based Ninaki Priddy launched her jewelry line earlier this year, and it's abstract, art-inspired aesthetic is already catching eyes across the country. This sleek Contessa ring, inspired by sculpture, human curves, and architecture, is far from flashy but standout enough to make a statement, whether in utilitarian silver or a more luxe, 24-karat gold plated take.

WHAT: JNBY shirt dress
WHY: When JNBY landed on Greene Street earlier this year, it became an immediate obsession---but what about all you chicsters not based in Manhattan? Shopbop is here to answer your e-commerce prayers. The brand's fall collection hits the online retailer today, which means it's time to snap up the perfect pieces---like this white tunic, which is perfect now sans tights---pronto.

WHAT: Ariel Gordon Jewelry silk braid bracelet
WHY: Because even if you didn't make it to summer camp this year, you're still happy to pretend. Let's face it: Silly Bandz are just not good enough for those tangles of bracelets that we all love to sport during the summer months, but these braided friendship-esque bracelets (which come in an array of colors) are just the thing for a little nostalgia---without sacrificing chic. Now can we please dispose of the Silly Bandz? Please?

WHAT: Isabella Oliver 365 The Cape
WHY: In an unusual switch, maternity designer Isabella Oliver has expanded her collection to include ready-to-wear for those who aren't expecting. No elastic-waist jeans or belly-hiding empire waists here, just easy, chic, everyday pieces like a perfect oversized oxford shirt and collarless leather jacket. The standout? This gorgeous wool and cashmere double-breasted cape. Can fall come sooner, please?
