1. Lydia K's sweet take on the neo-retro silhouette makes this circle skirt a unique find. We especially love the high, side-buttoned waist and lacy overlay ( Georgie Bolesworth , 891 Dundas West, 416-703-7625, $195).
2. When coin is limited and your regular black threads won't cut it poolside, try this classic Hawaiian-print mini by Mossimo ( Zellers , check www.hbc.com for locations, $24.97) for a cheap dash of summer chic.
3. Fornarina's ruffly pink polka dot mini is the perfect uniform for Hilton-style high jinx ( StyleXChange , 181 Yonge, 416-214-0111, $124.95). Starring in an upskirts video, for example.
4. So, you had too many beers. Breathe easier with the elasticized waist on this yellow and green number ( Urban Outfitters , 235 Yonge, 416-214-1466, $48).
5. Mod-ify your ensemble with this throwback to the 60s, the Miss Penelope geo-print mini ( Christina Bergstrom Originals , 750 Queen East, 416-595-7320, $158).
