WHAT: Iosselliani feather cuff bracelet
WHY: The feather has so much pretty appeal, but the real thing can often come off a bit much, non? Iosselliani's solution: turn the sweet shape into a chunky cuff. It will give your leather leggings and glam-rock spin, but plays double duty accessorizing a floaty frock. Of course, if you want to go the hippie route, it will do quite nicely for that as well...

WHAT: Nicole Miller Collection necklace
WHY: While we'll never tire of gold, silver, pearls and stones, we love it when a statement necklace gives us something a little more fresh. Glass? Perfect--expecially when cut into Deco-esque shapes and strung on chunky silver chains. The peekaboo effect it will have on your high-necked dresses and tops (especially in a print!) will be just as fun as wearing it against a bare neck will be sexy.

WHAT: Burberry print long-sleeved tee
WHY: If graphic tees bring you back to your tween days, think again. (Naturally, Chris Bailey would be the one to do it right.) These printed tees from the brand's Fall 2009 collection look just as good layered under a nubby blazer--for the boys and the girls!--as they do topping off a perfectly feminine skirt (see: Gwyneth, who paired her sleeveless version with a brand-new Spring 2010 skirt at the London show).

WHAT: T by Alexander Wang striped baggy tank
WHY: Two of our favorite things have met at last: preppy sailor stripes and Alex Wang's perfectly slouchy tees. As though his collection of super-comfortable and just-sheer-enough gray, black and white tees wasn't enough of a staple of our closets, now Alex the boy wonder has introduced this classic pattern--which also comes in a truly adorable romper version. Can we buy in bulk?
