WWD’s recent look at the top 10 luxury brands (as rated by the Luxury Institute) inspired us to find the best high-dollar designer brands worth your dollar.

Here’s Part II:

6. Chanel La Vernis Ever since Chanel’s Vamp nail color caused mani/pedi mania, fashionable hands have relied on Chanel nailpolish. What will this year’s ‘It’ color be? We’re starting with Pirate to contrast spring’s pastel palette. Find it at Nordstrom.comicon for $18.

Prada army nylon 'Ball' medium hobo

7. Prada army nylon ‘Ball’ medium hobo Avoid the black nylon style you can find every other street vendor selling fake versions of. We suggest the army green “Ball” medium hobo. Counterfeiters will be jealous. Find it at for $360.

8. Gucci Flat Heel Pump Whew — our feet are relieved that comfy (yet stylish) flats are still hot for spring. We like Gucci’s whimsical floral canvas verion with a bamboo horsebit. Walk in a garden, without the weeds, of course. Find them at for $395.

9. Armani Ruffled Stretch Skirt Nervous about embracing a spring trend? Go with a classic designer. We like Armani’s take on ruffles with his sleek stretch skirt. It tempers the trend’s sweetness with sexy slit. Find it at for $675.

10. Ferragamo Double-Wrap Leather Bracelet The classic brand reveals surprisingly hip sensibilities with its double-wrap leather bracelets in turquoise, green and yellow. Oh, decisions…Get all 3 at for $70.
