Any fashion-obsessed young woman knows that the Christmas season is the perfect time to revamp your wardrobe - all by adding a few key items to your wishlist. If you are (or if you have a fashion-loving young woman in your life) this is the absolute ultimate shopping list that you will need to have the most spectacular December 25th (hot chocolate not included).
1. Geo Print Makeup Bag
This geo-print makeup bag from F21 is wonderfully ideal for the fashion-obsessed young lady in your life that has WAY TOO MANY beauty products. If you're like me, you probably need a heavy upgrade from the Ziploc bag of your younger years. It's only $7.90 too!
2. Statement Earrings
Bauble Bar is where it's at for statement earrings. They're an easy gift, but definitely adds that sparkle wow-factor. Ya homegirl loves a little sparkle and statement earrings are a great way to add the ba bling ba bling - they're aren't unreasonably priced either at only $39.00!
3. Adidas Superstar Sneaks
You know those shoes that EVERYONE wears and are STILL cool? These are them. If you are a fashion-obsessed lady and are hoping to move to NYC or another big city, start with these shoes. They are practically provided to you as a welcome gift to the city, along with a bagel and a dollar slice.
4. Patterned Hand Wallet
Leave it to H&M to have another killer collab. This KENZO x H&M pouch is not for the faint of heart. It power clashes patterns like a boss. You (or your drooling, fashion-obsessed lady love) will NEED to carry this around everywhere.
5. Faux Fur Pom Pom Keychain
Fur pom poms are everywhere right now. Ladies are throwing them on their key rings, on their bags, on their belt loops - EVERYWHERE! Some people are preferring black puffs, but I personally think that the bright options are a bit more fun. It's a great way to add a pop of color to your all-black outfit and all-black soul. This one is only $3.90 from F21 (which is pretty notorious for having AMAZEBALL stocking stuffers).
6. Velvet Anything
Is it even the holiday season if you aren't swimming in velvet? No? I didn't think so. These embossed velvet paisley booties from the Who What Wear collab from Target are probably the best "secret" velvet addition I've found yet. They're not your typical crush red velvet holiday swing dress of your 90's youth - they're a heavy upgrade! Caution: not your mama's velvet.
7. Embroidered Bomber Jacket
If you didn't know embroidered Bomber jackets are a thing, you have been living under a fashion void rock. They are the coolest upgrade to the typical aviator outerwear since "Top Gun." This look is a little trendy and may not transfer beyond seasons super well, but fashion is cyclical so in no time it will be vintage again!
8. More velvet
Oy, with the velvet again. This time, this velvet headband has rhinestones so you can truly lean into your "ballet school headmistress" former self. Miss Patty would be proud.
9. Faux Fur Stole
Does anything say "luxury bitch" more than a faux fur stole? Didn't think so.
10. Ivy Park All Day
Athleisure is just about the greatest thing to happen to the fashion world since the LBD. I mean, who is going to complain about wearing sweatpants and looking fab? Nobody, that's who. Rock your inner 'yonce by stocking up on her gym wear line.
11. Big Comfy, Camel-Colored Sweater
Does life get better than in a comfy sweater?
12. Adorable Coffee Mug
Carrying around a Sbucks coffee cup is so 2014 - show your style and bring a re-useable everywhere. Make sure it's cute too. Save the environment! Bonus points if it's Kate Spade too!
13. Wearable tech
What's the point of being cute, if you can't be smart too? If you're going to really snazz up your tech game, go for gold - ROSE GOLD!
14. Polaroid Camera
Any fashion guru is going to want to step up her Insta game in a major way. Polaroids are the old school way of being new school. Cute snaps never go out of style.
15. Stylish Earbuds
Oy, with the rose gold again (I know, I made that Gilmore Girls reference twice). These earbuds, though, are FIRE.
16. Hair scrunchies
I know Carrie Bradshaw ruined her relationship with Jack Berger over a hair scrunchie (ok, there were a lot of deep-seeded issues with their relationship including misogyny and overall jack-assery), but baby, there are coming back with all the other 80's and 90's trends. Don't listen to your less-fashionable friends that tell you otherwise. Stay ahead of the curve and rock your scrunchie in Manhattan and beyond!
17. Calvin Klein Underwear
As the old adage goes, "As goes Kendall and Kylie Jenner, so goes the world." A cute set of Calvin Klein underwear is the perfect example of that adage reaching truth.
18. S'well Water Bottle
S'well water bottles are everywhere. Fashion girls are never late to any party (unless it's fashionably so), so get them one of these water bottles. Wood grain is best.
19. Comfy Slippers
Any true fashionable lady will know the value of a good slipper - especially after hours spent in chunky platform heels (trust me, I've been there). Save their (or your!) precious tootsies and get them some slippers. They'll thank you!
20. Gratitude Journal
This is a necessity for not just fashion girls - this should be purchased for every single person in your life. I own this journal, I love this journal. If you don't get one this Christmas, you will have sorely lost out on the most transformative opportunity of your life.
21. Good Skincare Set
Never underestimate the power of a good skincare set. I own the Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater from Mario Badescu pictured above. I love it and 100% think that every fashion girl needs to start with a healthy approach to her skincare.
I hope you have a wonderful, safe and healthy holiday season! Let's get shopping fashion girls!
