15 Gifts for People Who Dress Better Than You
How to shop for those who already love to shop
Your sister who lives in the city. Your niece who just got accepted to art school. Your work wife who still lives for Carrie Bradshaw. Sometimes you have people in your life who might intimidate you sartorially. And that’s OK. We’re here to help with what to put under their tree.
A Minimalist Pouch
Any good fashionista appreciates clean lines and actual practicality. She can toss this into her larger purse for day (chicest receipt holder ever?) or take it for a solo spin at night. (It’s the clutch that goes with everything.)
Comme des Garçons ($135)
A FAUX-FUR KEY CHAIN
These kooky little purse accessories originally started at Fendi. But those cost about 30 times as much, and frankly, your gift recipient will be delighted at the thought, no matter the brand.
Ann Taylor ($20)
The biggest trend in jewelry isn’t big at all. It’s delicate and little. Think stud earrings, thin rings and lightweight layering pieces.
Bing Bang Jewelry ($78)
Exaggerated Drop Earrings
But if you have your heart set on a statement piece, know that she’ll love the popular silhouette of these tiered drop earrings.
Round Wire-Rim Sunglasses
Fact: You can never go wrong with a pair of ’70s-inspired frames—for anyone.
A Blanket Scarf
Unlike the pouch and the jewelry, a scarf is one item where you want to go big. The more massive, the better.
Lovers of fashion are lovers of fabric. So even if you need to downsize from a sweater to a pair of socks or an eye mask, it’s worth it to respect quality.
White + Warren ($85)
A Cheeky Phone Case
Introducing the 2016 version of everyone’s teenage lip phone—now in moody black.
Stella McCartney ($75)
A TUBE OF DESIGNER LIPSTICK
If you want the most brand-power bang for your buck, go with makeup. Chanel, Dior, Mark Jacobs, Tom Ford…it makes an impression.
Tom Ford ($36)
A Dope Pair of Sneakers
Look at that color-blocked beauty. Our tip: When shopping for sneakers, do a search within a top brand. Then find the one you know your friend would never actually wear to the gym. That’s the pair she’ll love the most.
