Holiday Gifts for Discerning Females
Posted: Dec 05 2013
Gift buying can be a tricky endeavor, but we’ve got all the must-buys for the two most discerning girls on your shopping list: the career woman and the fashionable femme. Whether she’s your best friend, sister, aunt, cousin, or just yourself, whoever you buy these items for will fall head over heels for your spot-on gifts. Go ahead — you can take all the credit!
The Career Woman
Karl Lagerfeld once said, “If you were to ask me what I wish I had invented in fashion, it would be the white shirt. To me, a shirt is the basis for everything. Everything else comes afterwards.” Wise words, indeed — which is why it makes the perfect gift for a career woman. This versatile sleeveless version works well under warm layers now, and will last straight through spring and summer.
Your favorite working girl needs a gift that is as functional as it is stylish. Enter this amazing shearling jacket, which will ward off wintery chills with its plush shearling lining and soft lambskin sleeves. Team it with heels and a pair of trousers like the ones below to create the perfect work ensemble.
Nothing says 9-to-5 like a crisp pair of trousers. But don’t rely on just any old style — skip plain, boring pairs and scoop up this wide-leg chiffon version instead. Soft, flowing, and totally work appro, they’re an easy way to freshen up an office babe’s look in no time.
The working girl is always in need of sleek statement jewelry to compliment her put-together-professional outfits, and this minimalist cuff by Citrine fits the bill perfectly. Plus, you can never go wrong with jewelry as a present — it’s a perennially foolproof option!
The Fashionable Femme
A touch of irreverence never hurt anyone, right? Let this “party shirt”-emblazoned tee live up to its name by teaming it with a sequined jacket for a festive soiree. The best part? It’s one size, so you’ll never have to worry about fit!
A stylish gal’s gotta stay warm too, you know. Keep cozy without sacrificing style by opting for this luxe wool and angora coat. This timeless investment piece makes the ultimate gift because it will last for many seasons to come — and never go out of style.
Does your fashion-forward friend have dirty little secrets to hide? Well, perhaps you should keep this gift for yourself then. Flaunt what you’ve got with this black lucite clutch (also available in clear) which comes with a conveniently detachable — not to mention totally chic and practical— gold chain strap. Perfect for stashing only the essentials, it’s a unique and sophisticated option for holiday parties and beyond.
As any savvy shopper knows, sometimes a more subtle statement can go a long way. These drop earrings may have a dainty silhouette, but the silver spikes add just the right amount of edge (pun intended). Equal parts elegant and spunky, these earrings will go with a range of outfits — from a casual jeans-and-tee combo to a glittering New Year’s Eve look. Trust us, they’ll get a tone of mileage whether you keep them for yourself or
sacrifice gift them to your stylish BFF!
