Uptown girls in pursuit of Otte's urbane formalwear no longer have to migrate downtown for their fix of Italian wool. A cheery mood prevails at Otte's latest narrow settlement where blonde wood and white walls let the clothes speak. Miniature handcrafted chandeliers hang overhead in the dressing chambers where you can experiment with some of the store's interesting matching suggestions. Scoop up an Alexander Wang ruffle nude skirt ($496), a romantic silk chiffon blouse from Foley & Corrina ($456), a Madison Marcus dress that degrades from crimson to pitch black ($365) or a delicate Eberjey bra ($44).
