M+J Savitt's 36-inch gold chain necklace. Plus, ultra-portable hair gel, a trench coat alternative, an easy-burrowing plunger...


The Best Bet
When Marc Jacobs showed big, bold gold-chain necklaces on the runway for fall, he started a gold rush of sorts. There’s no shortage of choices for this accessory, but many miss the style mark—too short, too shiny, or with links too small for the proper dramatic effect. M+J Savitt hit the bullion on the head: This 36-inch plated-gold chain ($300 at Saks Fifth Avenue; 212-753-4000) makes an elegant yet forceful statement and is long enough to be wrapped around the neck several times.
