    Like Alexander Wang, Elizabeth and James is a contemporary line with a designer sensibility — and prices that thankfully keep the working girl's budget in mind. Unlike the Chanels and Célines of the world, we plebes can save for an E+J dress with a few months of skipped lattés and cab rides — an accessibility that only ups the temptation factor on these already-covetable clothes.

    The similarities to Wang don't end at the price points — with its black-and-white palette and dreamy drapery contrasted with sharp-edged tailoring, this is a collection that completely gets that glam-grunge mix that's a part of the modern girl's DNA.

    Click on to see Elizabeth and James' eight best pieces — show us a girl who doesn't want that slinky, chalk-white jersey dresses with sheer insets, or sturdy-yet-sexy color-blocked heel...and we'll show you a girl planning to sell her firstborn for some Chanel.
