Sure, the French swear by their boat-neck shirts, and Prada's Spring 2011 collection put a bold spin on the print, but we found new ways to wear stripes at an affordable price.

Brooks Brothers: Storewide sale. A French-cuff dress shirt can feel too strict when paired with a pencil skirt and pointy heels, so have fun with this number and wear with sequins or floral skirt instead. ($89.50)

Piperlime: Final sale. We think that these Calvin Klein Lizzy booties are perfect transition shoes: Pair with tights or skinny jeans in chilly weather, and with flirty frocks for balmy evenings. (Were $159, now $64.99)

Bloomingdale's: 20 to 30 percent off. You can't forget your lines in this BCBG Max Azria fitted dress! The alternating black and champagne stripes are ultra-slimming and the tulle neckline is sexy on any shape. (Was $384, now $278.40)

Shopbop: 25 percent off Calvin Klein underwear. Nothing gets between us and our Calvins. We adore the cozy CK One boxers and eye mask for lazy Sundays when nothing gets between us and "Sex and the City" reruns. ($28)
