If you’re gravitating towards clothing and accessories for holiday gifting this year, finding the perfect and versatile item can be tricky business. But fashionista or not, your friends and family will love these picks!
ONE. Anlo Lansy Top — Whether her style is romantic girly or bohemian chic, your fashionista friend will love this Anlo top! This luxurious top is made of breathable silk jersey, and sexily skims the body. Ruffles are the neckline and back soften the look, but the open back adds a va-va-voom appeal. She can wear this year-round – underneath a cardigan now and later by itself. (Bonus: it’s currently on sale at Shopbop!)
TWO. Virginia Johnson Camel-Print Merino Wool Scarf — The best scarves are Virginia Johnson ones, for its versatility in size, color, design, and fabric. It is a perfect, convertible size if you use it as a shawl or swirled around the neck as a drapey scarf. Their nature inspired designs are always a blend of neutrals and earth-toned colors with a raw edged hem, which make them adaptable to almost every type of outfit. Because they are made out of lightweight merino wool, it also can be used from warm into cold weather, and the ideal type of basic that you would want in a cold airplane cabin.
THREE. Splendid 1×1 Pocket Wrap — Keep your fashionista friend warm with a sleek sweater wrap, like this one from Splendid. She’ll love the cute pockets to keep hands toasty warm! Plus, it’s versatile as a layer and comes in 3 colors for easy mixing and matching. Even the most discerning gal will love how soft and warm this wrap is, and just imagine how cute it would look over a tee, skinny jeans, and cute flats.
FOUR. Saks Long Cashmere-Lined Gloves — There is something very elegant and special (in addition to practical!) about long leather gloves. This season, they are the perfect pairing to go with short sleeved coats which are all the rage- not to mention, they just keep you warm! The long leather gloves from Saks are lined in cashmere, making it especially indulgent. Priced at $145, this pair is perfect for your favorite fashionista friend.
FIVE. Urban Outfitters BDG Sheer V-Neck Tee — What does everyone love to wear but take for granted? T-shirts! There’s no shirt in the world that we want to collect more than Urban Outfitters BDG Sheer V-Neck Tee. They’re super soft and affordable at UO’s regular 2 for $24 special. (Tip: Hit the sale rack for designer printed tees dropped to $9.99.) Plus they’re sheer enough to layer, basic enough to pair with work essentials and sexy enough to tuck into a sequined mini. We could wear one every day of the week, and so could your lucky gift getter.
SIX. Love Heals Vision Star Necklace — For the trendy fashionista on your list, we’re loving this necklace from the Love Does Heal collection from Love Heals. It’s a handcrafted 16 inch braided necklace with white pearls and silver charms with white heishi gems that manages to be both delicate and funky at the same time. It’s a very feminine piece that would look gorgeous with a party dress and an updo, but you could also pair it with jeans and a simple t-shirt. What we really love about the piece (besides the fact that it’s beautiful!) is that it’s part of something called the VISION series, which means that for every necklace sold, Love Heals will make a donation to Vitamin Angels to protect four at-risk children from blindness during their crucial first five years of development. For $185, you get a fabulous piece of jewelry and the knowledge that you’re helping children in need. Who wouldn’t want a gift like that?
