If you’re looking for a way to show your fashion-forward friends how much you care, a clothing-related gift is the way to go. This season, there are a variety of gifts you can give, from basic wardrobe staples to a smattering of the best of the best. Here are a few of our favorite gifts, ranging from the most obvious to the most obscure.
The first rule of thumb for buying something for your fashion savvy friend is to know what they want. They may have a specific style in mind or just need a little help pulling together the right combination of pieces to create their dream outfit. For instance, if you’re giving a guy a present, he’ll probably appreciate an edgy pair of jeans. On the other hand, if you’re buying for a woman, a splurge on a chic silk or cashmere tracksuit will do the trick.
It’s no secret that a stylish scarf or hat can instantly transform an otherwise drab outfit. And there’s no shortage of chic choices on the market, from Saint Laurent’s glossy ‘Diane’ design to Alaia’s ‘Le Papa’, a sassy choice for an evening out.
In terms of style, the croc-effect leather belt from The Row is a definite must-have, and can instantly elevate a slinky slip dress. Similarly, a pair of pearl necklaces is sure to make a statement. These may seem like a frivolous gift, but they’ll be appreciated by anyone with a pulse.
When it comes to the best gifts for your fashion savvy friends, you really don’t need to break the bank. In fact, you can find some great deals on high-quality clothes online and in your local mall. To name a few, you can browse through Lands’ End’s vast selection. Or you can treat yourself to a splurge on branded goods, from a chic handbag to a pair of designer earrings.
A framed vintage fashion print is a clever nod to the past. It’s the perfect choice for a fashionista with a love for all things retro. It’s available in a variety of framing options. Also, the right pair of sunglasses is a must-have for any fashionista, and the cheapest ones are on the market right now.
While not quite as impressive as the above, the Missoni trifecta of towels, a bath sheet, and a hand towel is a fine choice for the bathroom. At a mere $55, it’s one of the most coveted items in your house.
Lastly, the ‘Woody’ canvas tote from Chloe is a functional and chic piece of luggage. The design features a smattering of faceted crystals and a streamlined look. Whether you’re picking up your girlfriend for a luncheon or picking up your daughter for a night out, this is a piece you’ll be glad you own.
Hopefully these gizmos are enough to convince your fashion-forward friends to start putting on some new clothes! After all, a fresh look is an added bonus to any holiday season.
