Why it’s a score: Steven Alan, purveyor of all things cool to cool girls everywhere, is a veritable mecca when it comes to basics. And not just any basics, but those inflected with a Frenchified je ne sais quoi. Choose from a crisp white button-down or cheeky striped T-shirt dress from the store’s in-house line, or go with Acne’s perfectly relaxed straight-leg jeans. Now just throw on a scarf and you're set to go!
