Looking for something practical, affordable and cool to wear this summer? What's that? You need it to work for both office and weekend? Well look no further. Nanette Lepore's under-the-radar line of luxe basics, Oonagh (that's pronounced OO-na, and it's Scottish for 'pure'), fits the bill.

Chock full of easy, simply-cut pieces with a little bit of attitude, this collection is a departure for Lepore, whose eponymous label boasts feminine frills, flourishes and embellishment. Whereas Nanette Lepore is a garden party, Oonagh is a loft party.

The minimalist cotton tees, lightweight cardigans and tissue-thin, silk maxi-dresses are mix-and-match versatile and they ring in at diffusion-line prices ($58 - $348) so you can stock up without hurting your bank statement. Throw them on and head out on your fabulous weekend getaway. Or just back to the office.
