18 Via A. Maspoli, Mendrisio, CH-6850, Switzerland

Switzerland may be famed for swanky banking, swoony chocolates, and self-winding watches, but thanks to FoxTown, in the town of Mendrisio, it's owed kudos for style too. This outlet mall is crammed with local labels, like underwear icon Hanro, at 50–80 percent off. But since Milan is just across the border—it's only 45 minutes away by train or car—there's also a slew of Italian marques, including Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana, and chic sneaker maker Superga.

Insider Tip: If you're making a day jaunt from Italy, remember to pack your passport. Not only will you be passing in and out of the EU via Swiss immigration, but you'll need it to reclaim tax on purchases for export.
