Going into party season, we usually have one question on our mind: how can we stand out in a sea of little black dresses? Well, dear readers, consider that query answered thanks to the fall 2011 collection from luxe headband label Dauphines of New York. Inspired by a slew of sources—including the Baroque era, the Art Deco era, and early Navajo prints, among others—the headbands feature intricate embellishments like antique bronze, Czech glass beads, pearls, Italian leather, and crystals. And with names like “The Empress” and “The Collectible,” you can be sure that you will stand out from the crowd. You can check out the entire collection now at DauphinesOfNewYork.com, as well as at Shopbop.com.
