If you want to be fashionable but gentle on your wallet, strike a balance: Invest in key pieces you’ll wear often and shop at fast-fashion stores for trendy pieces that you’ll just be infatuated with for a few seasons. Check out thrift stores for classics or fun vintage pieces. Patterned or bright scarves and fun jewelry can tie outfits together.
If you’re shopping for a wine lover this holiday season, consider buying them in vogue and complementing gifts — like a cheese board or a wine chiller that controls the temperature of bottles. Stores like West Elm and Pottery Barn have handsome wine storage sets. If you plan to give a bottle of wine to a party host this winter, dress it up in a quirky hat and scarf set.
