Holiday gift guide: Fab styles for the fashionista
Whether she devours Vogue or doesn’t know a peplum from a pleat, it’s hard to find a woman who wouldn’t appreciate a new fashion item under the tree. From jewelry to cashmere to a beautiful coffee table book, here are six gifts that give great style.
Be a rebel
It’s hard to go wrong with a cool necklace, and this sleek style, in silver, gold or rose gold, not only looks beautiful, but brings just the right amount of edge to any outfit. Stella & Dot Rebel pendant, $79, stelladot.com
If there’s a fashionista/photography buff on your list, she’ll flip for this coffee table book from Todd Oldham. The book compiles the wonderful photographs of Palm Beach lensman Gerald Davis, featuring an eclectic cast of characters—from Diane von Furstenburg to Elizabeth Taylor to Florida nudists to the world’s fattest cat. We couldn’t look away. Strange Stories: The Photography of Gerald Davis by Todd Oldham and Gerald Davis, $39.95, amazon.com
In our view, a woman can never have too many shoes or too many watches. Give the gift of time—and style—with these fab hand-made leather wrap watches, assembled in the United States. Looks range from classic to extra long straps that include chains, charms and more in one cool piece and give the illusion that you’re wearing a pile of bracelets. Choosing just one watch is tricky, but we’re partial to the retro leopard La Mer Collections Del Mar double wrap watch, $84, lamercollections.com.
Keep her warm—and bright—in a cozy sweater that reminds her of the blissful spirit of the season. Hugo Guinness for J.Crew Bliss sweater, $89.50, jcrew.com
In the shade
Sunglasses are an accessory must year-round, so a new pair of shades is always welcome. Our new favorite brand is not only chic, but totally affordable. Want polarized aviators? Get ’em for just $30. The matte black/moonshine Fort Knocks style? A mere $25. And for only $14? Choose from a huge array of colors and lens, but we love this clear pair: Knockaround Premium sunglasses in clear/moonshine, $14, knockaround.com
A super-soft cashmere scarf in a pretty pastel pink is a classic gift for women of any age. Banana Republic scarf, $150, bananarepublic.com
