Off the shoulder and ruffled looks owned the buzz this season. You’ll hit all the marks with these Mara Hoffman striped separates. Earn extra style points by adding a notice-me-now choker like the Arme de L’Amour piece shown below. Find this look at Influence, Philosophy & Vines and L. Boutique

Arme de L’Amour (“weapon of love”) is an obsession-worthy brand. No surprise that this sexy collection of statement jewelry influenced by contemporary art and sculpture calls Miami home. A hyper-modern choker is a fashion must. Fab for daytime polish or head-turning drama for evening. June Simmons @ The Met, $456

A fashion-following friend told me about PS Dept, a personal shopping app, and I’ve been enamored ever since. The team of industry veterans has dressed guests at events from George Clooney’s wedding to Vanity Fair’s Oscar party. For a 5 percent gratuity, they’ll even do a global search to track down that hard-to-find, must-have item for you. iTunes app store, free

In summer, you want to look dewy—not oily. Slip a package of Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese beauty papers into your clutch to blot away excess oil without disturbing your make-up. The all-natural abaca leaf and gold flake leaflets are remarkably absorbent, leaving your skin petal-fresh anytime, anywhere. Sephora, $12
