It’s that time of year again! Everyone is bundling up and getting ready for the holidays. There are few things I enjoy more than the last day of the semester when I can finally come home and feel 100% relaxed. Of course along with the holidays comes the exchange of presents, so here is my guide to all things fashion for the people on your list, and you too. For me, the best gifts are those that stay in the everyday life of a person. Something that they’ll love and use for years.
A jacket or coat is a great gift, and these two by Topshop and Mango are perfect for everyday wear. A denim borg jacket is great to wear over a grey knit hoodie with coated black jeans, sneakers and a beanie. The white boucle coat is a little more sophisticated and can be dressed down with jeans and sneakers or compliment a LBD and over the knee boots for a night out.
Accessories are what makes your outfit unique, and a pop of color with this Rebecca Minkoff mini bag would be an unforgettable present. I have the same waterproof messenger bag in a slightly different shade from a few seasons ago and I love it, it’s the perfect size for running errands or going out to eat. I had to include this belt by Mango too, the studs add a little bit of edge and would look awesome paired with a leather jacket.
These Saint Laurent pieces are definitely more inspirational than realistic, but I had to include them. YSL has a way of creating timeless accessories that still have a youthful and exciting feel to them. This version of the Sac de Jour bag is the perfect balance of all my favorite things (leather, silver hardware, structured mini bags, and studs studs and more studs), and these chained Patti boots are flawless.
If you don’t feel like buying an entirely new bag, a fun way to revamp your current bag is to add a cool keychain to it! A little pom keychain is an instant outfit enhancer, but sadly many of the choices out there are made from rabbit fur. This one from Topshop 100% faux, so no worries!
Another way to revamp your wardrobe is by substituting your classic black denim for some coated leather look pants! This pair from BLANKNYC is aboslutely gorgeous and can be styled with almost anything.
Hope you guys enjoyed this guide, and have an amazing holiday!
