Critics, upstate: Relative newcomer NV Boutique has turned a few heads by showcasing chic lines from the likes of Ella Moss, Yana K, BCBG and more. “They’re the new kid on the block with a little younger edge, and they have a lovely store and staff that aim to please,” Tyler says. “Have a dress in mind, but can’t find it? They will order it for you, and you can try it on right in the store.” (211 Louviers Drive, Newark, 368-4403)
Critics, downstate: Entering its fourth summer, Aquamarine on Market remains a great place for women to find flat-out cool labels. The shop still carries reliable faves such as the Vera Wang Lavender label, Cut Loose casual linens and Dead Sexy twill pants, but you can always find new lines such as Velvet’s soft T-shirts and Italian shoemaker All Black. Also new is the glamorous eveningwear of Badgley Mischka and the vibrant patterns of Trina Turk. (205 Second St., Lewes, 644-4550)
