Be­low: Beker’s jacket is by emerg­ing T.O. la­bel Rank by Rani Kim, $295

JEANNE’S PICK OS­CAR DE LA RENTA AT HOLT REN­FREW, 50 BLOOR ST. W., $3,395 “This is all about fun and fri­vol­ity! Feath­ers have be­come a clas­sic, and tiny se­quins add that ex­tra amount of daz­zle. This could be worn by a woman of any age.” SO...

A PLAY­FUL SOUL JIL SAN­DER AT GRAV­I­TY­POPE, 1010 QUEEN ST. W., $385 “Th­ese re­mind me of san­dals I wore when I was a lit­tle kid. They have a Euro­pean vibe to them. It’s a heav­ier look for sure; it’s a funkier look. Wear with boyfriend jeans, shorts,...

FRENCH AF­FAIR A.L.C. AT HUD­SON’S BAY, YORK­DALE SHOP­PING CEN­TRE, $740 “This is great. It’s that fab­ric that re­minds me of those Azze­dine Alaïa dresses — for 8 mil­lion dol­lars! Very body-hug­ging, great for travel.”

TRIPPY TRIBAL NI­COLE MILLER AT AN­DREWS, BAYVIEW VIL­LAGE, $350 “Ni­cole Miller re­ally knows women’s bod­ies. The ruch­ing makes it very flat­ter­ing across the belly.”

SHARP LINES JU­DITH & CHARLES, BAYVIEW VIL­LAGE, $475 “They do great ca­reer dress­ing. You could do se­ri­ous busi­ness in this. It’s gonna be very slim­ming be­cause of the black pan­els on the side.”

NOT A SQUARE BA­LEN­CI­AGA AT 119 CORBO, 119 YORKVILLE AVE., $695 “Th­ese are so gor­geous. They look like old bistro floors. It’s a great qual­ity jean with a bit of a low rise — not for women of a cer­tain body type. If you’ve got the body, wear them!”

GAMELY GRAPHIC KSUBI AT ROOM 2046, 1252 YONGE ST., $235 “You can never have enough sun­glasses. Th­ese look like stained glass win­dows — in­cred­i­bly graphic. They’re very flat­ter­ing on.”

OP­TI­CAL TRICKS OHNE TI­TEL AT IN­TER­MIX, 130 BLOOR ST. W., $565 “Oh, I love this flirty lit­tle skirt! Such great stretch in this knit; there’s lots of move­ment to it. Wear it all year round.”

A ZIG WITH A ZAG NI­CHOLAS KIRK­WOOD AT DAVIDS, 66 BLOOR ST. W. $875 “The minute I looked at th­ese, my eye­balls fell out of their sock­ets be­cause this is op art at its best. They just scream, ‘Look at me!’ I love them. Fab­u­lous.”

SNEAK-Y SPIRIT TOMS, TOMS.CA, $75 “Th­ese are just fun lit­tle hightops with a re­ally beau­ti­ful satiny fab­ri­ca­tion and a great dig­i­tal print. You could wear them in a myr­iad of ways. Great value.”
