Christmas is officially 2 weeks away! Can you believe it? Online shopping has not just been my hobby, it has become my job since I’ve been home in Chicago for the holidays. I’m not only helping my mom shop for our whole family but also checking off my own gift giving list for my friends and family. While sitting on my couch, scrolling through endless holiday gift guides, I decided why not write my own. To help you find the perfect gift for any type of person – from the techie to the bookworm – I will be writing a series of gift guides, starting with: THE FASHIONISTA. Stay tuned for more to come…
POP&SUKI CAMERA BAG
Super hot, super stylish. This bag has been seen everywhere on fashionistas – from Cara Delevingne to Emily Ratajkowski. Pick any color and then customize the bottom with any word or emoji. There are also fun add-ons like the backpack strap and girly tassels.
SHOP : POP&SUKI – $195
Puffer jackets are the go-to coat this winter. Stylish yet warm enough to keep you looking and feeling hot in the cold weather. I love the red velvet Zara jacket – a fun twist to a classic puffer. The metallic puffer from Topshop also looks chic and cool.
SHOP : ZARA – $149
SHOP : TOPSHOP – $130
The fabulous retro cat-eye sunglasses have been seen everywhere on supermodels, actresses, and singers – from Kendall Jenner to Rihanna. It’s a fashionista favorite. The Le Specs sunglasses are selling out, so get them while you can!
UGG KASEN BOOTS
I know what you’re thinking… Uggs for a fashionista!? Yup. Because as Harper’s BAZAAR says – the UGG Kasen Boots are “anything but basic.” Supermodel Rosie Huntingon-Whiteley paired hers with a chic duster coat, denim, and a simple white tee for the perfect “model off duty” look. These boots are made for walking in the snow but also on the streets for a killer street style look.
SHOP: UGG Kasen Boots – $250
It’s a fun gift to give your stylish best friend, your mom, or girlfriend. Personalized jewelry is just that – personable. So your fabulous friends know you put a lot of thought into it while also giving them a gift they can wear with all their fashionable clothes. It’s a win win. Get creative – you can personalize a ring, necklace, or a bracelet with their initials, their zodiac sign, or even a special location with coordinates.
Fashion Coffee Table Books
My two favorite things are books and fashion… so a stylish coffee table book on one of my favorite designers would be an ideal gift. It’s a great way to decorate any apartment and add some personality to a room.
Having a comfortable and stylish bootie in your closet that matches everything is a fashionista must. Skip the usual black bootie and try a mod white style – very on trend right now.
Cool Girl Hat
Berets and fiddler hats are taking over the street style scene. Whether it’s to hide your bedhead or add a cool girl touch to a simple outfit, you can’t go wrong with any of these hats.
Happy Shopping to all you fashionistas!
