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)



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)


Delicate Earrings

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.

Baublebar ($48)


Round Wire-Rim Sunglasses

Fact: You can never go wrong with a pair of ’70s-inspired frames—for anyone. 

Ray-Ban ($150)


A Monogrammed Jean Jacket

Remember when we told you that personalized fashion was a big deal? Well, it also makes an excellent gift.

Madewell ($118)


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.

H&M ($25)


Anything Velvet

A bag, shoes, a blazer, a dress… Whatever you think she’ll like best, try to find it in the ’90s fabric.

Rebecca Minkoff ($175)


Cashmere Anything

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)



If you want the most brand-power bang for your buck, go with makeup. Chanel, Dior, Mark Jacobs, Tom Ford…it makes an impression.

An Enamel Pin

If you haven’t noticed, everyone who’s anyone is loading up their jackets with quirky enamel pins. A good place to start is by gifting your friends their favorite emojis IRL.

Pintrill ($12)


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.

Nike ($184)


A Piece With a Story

These flats are not only 3-D knitted from recycled bottles, but they also just happen to be the most comfortable things we’ve ever put on our feet. Tell her all of this.

Rothy’s ($145)


An Up-and-Coming Designer

It’s hard to sneak up on someone who knows just about everything. (That’s why you have us.) Surprise her with a cool new designer she can brag about every time someone pays her blouse a compliment.
