We all have that friend—you know, the one who looks amazing every time you see them, is always up on the latest trends and seems completely fearless when it comes to fashion. (And if you don’t, congratulations, you’re that friend.) And while you definitely admire their sartorial prowess, buying them gifts during the holidays can be tricky. That’s why we put together this list of stylish must-haves your most fashionable friend will actually love (and wear) for you to gift this holiday season.
12 Gifts Your Fashion Friend Will Actually Like
1. A Sophisticated Bag
Whether they’re heading out for the night or want to add an upscale touch to any outfit, the refined Glam Shot Metallic from Marc Jacobs is the perfect gift. Featuring sliding chain straps, a metallic finish and antique gold Double J chain hardware, this 100 percent leather bag can be worn as a crossbody or on the shoulder. They can even add some extra personalization by tying a scarf or attaching charms to the strap, courtesy of the Marc Jacobs Strap Shop.
2. A Cashmere Polo Sweater
These polo-collared sweaters are not only in style now, they’re also a nod to the prepster trend of the early 2000s (and the ‘80s, for that matter). This one from Reformation hits the trifecta: subtle nostalgic collar, sophisticated olive color that looks professional on Zoom calls and cashmere fabric that’ll keep them warm all winter.
3. A Timeless Locket
This 18k yellow-gold vermeil and sterling silver locket is not only a thoughtful gift, but a classically stylish one as well. It holds two images and comes with both a black steel chain and a grey cord chain for them to layer with their other pieces and create multiple different jewelry looks.
4. Glam Cowboy Boots
Cowboy-inspired boots are very much in, but in 2022 we’ll be wearing them with a sophisticated spin. Think: unexpected details, color-blocking and higher heels. This croc-embossed pair with suede trim will add flair to their minidresses and jeans alike.
5. A Playful Tote
Not all tote bags are created equal. Gift your friend this Marc Jacobs Crinkle Leather Tote Bag with a convenient removable and adjustable strap (plus even more options available in the Strap Shop) and plenty of room to stash all their daily essentials. Between its handy interior pockets, glossy crinkled leather mixed with faux shearling and bold branding, they’ll be ready for anything while making a statement at the same time.
6. A Blazer With Special Details
Everyone needs a practical blazer, but practical doesn’t have to mean boring. We love the belted wrap front and split cuffs on this sustainably-minded version (the fabric is Oeko-tex-certified, which means it’s made without harmful substances). It’s the epitome of day-to-night, appropriate for both business meetings and cocktail bars.
