WHAT: Future Collectables Maison Michel headband with embellished veil
WHY: Because there's no chicer way to combat a bad hair day (or add interest to a drab dress). The headband is jazzed up with floral shaped sequins, fabric petals, Swarovski crystals and pearls. Wear it to the UNICEF Snowflake Ball tomorrow, and watch Bill Cunningham swoon.

WHAT: BoyNYC's King of the Sky cuff
WHY: Because all the holiday sucre has us yearning for something slightly sinister. Jake Stein, a 20-year-old Parsons student, developed this affordable collection of accessories with statement-making in mind. Made of sterling silver, it's subtle enough to wear with a pile-on of bangles, but sufficiently interesting to earn a few stares when worn alone.
AVAILABLE: $265, BoyNYC.com
