Top 10 Gifts For The Fashionista In Your Life

Fashion lovers can sometimes be the hardest people to shop for. What do you buy for someone who is always digging their nose (and wallet) into the latest trends? If you’re trying to impress your most fashionable friend (or feel like treating yourself), it doesn’t need to be as hard or as intimidating as it seems. From denim jackets to beauty books, here are ten gifts that will dazzle the fashionista in your life.

1. Foldable Ballet Flats

“Beauty is pain” you say as the soles of your feet cry out for a reprieve from the painfully cute pair of heels you decided to wear. Either you can suffer through that, or you can get a pair of easily transportable, foldable, and comfortable ballet flats, like these ones from Shoes8teen. Available in a ton of colors and patterns (like snake print), these shoes come in a handy pouch that’s easy to stow in your bag, keeping comfortable shoes always in your reach.

Get them on Amazon for $8.99-$14.99.

2. Dresses To Dream About by Christian Siriano

Coffee table books are always a great conversation starter, and Christian Siriano’s Dresses To Dream About is no different. Both gorgeous and informative, Siriano’s book (through the designer’s personal narration) gives readers an inside look at his design process, all the way from sketch to final product. The cover features his iconic pink Ombrè Bouquet bridal gown, while detailed shots and insight into his lavish gowns grace the interior pages.

Get it on Amazon for $33.97 or at Barnes & Noble for $45.00.

3. Vogue Colors A-Z: A Fashion Coloring Book

If your fashionista friend has a creative side too, then you should snatch up this coloring book from Vogue. Within, you’ll find a Vogue cover from 1912-1932 for each letter of the alphabet, ready to be colored in. Art Deco’s decadence is in full force in this book, as seen throughout the various pages. On top of that, the back of the book also features the original versions of the covers featured in the coloring book, along with a gorgeous foldout of 21 dresses from the same era that is waiting for a colored pencil to bring it to life.

Get it from Barnes & Noble for $16.95.

4. The Fashion Sketchpad

For the fashionista that’s aspiring to work in the industry, or just likes to draw, The Fashion Sketchpad is the perfect sidekick. The Fashion Sketchpad offers 420 templates for imagining your personal wardrobe, so instead of having to spend painstaking hours trying to make the figures themselves proportional, you can get right to making your fashion dreams a reality. Also included is a comprehensive garment dictionary, just so you can wow your friends by knowing the difference between a biker jacket and a bomber jacket.

Get it on Amazon for $8.08.

5. Longchamp Le Pliage Top Handle Bag

While the Le Pliage bag has spawned its own collection, the original top handle bag is still the star. The top handle bag from French leather goods company Longchamp is a cult-favorite, one every fashionista should have in their closet if they don’t already. Featured in a variety of colors and three different sizes, this minimalistic chic bag will quickly become the everyday bag that you’ll always reach for. Big enough to hold all your essentials and able to be folded up for easy closet storage? Sign us up!

Get it from Longchamp for $110.00.

6. Warp + Weft’s Overcast Denim Jacket

A denim jacket is a wardrobe essential. They go with everything, are the king of layering, and can make any outfit better. Finding a good denim jacket is even better, since a good one can last through several years and thousands of outfits. The Overcast jacket from Warp + Weft is here to be that wardrobe go-to. Available in light blue, dark blue, and black denim, the Overcast jacket features distressing details for that effortless “worn-in” look while being perfectly stretchy and comfortable.

Get it from Warp + Weft for $77.00.

7. Vestige Lipstick Holder

If your fashionista friend is also an avid beauty hoarder, they’ll need this antique-style lipstick holder from Anthropologie. This brass holder with a gold finish will both organize their inevitably messy lipstick collection and make it a piece worth displaying on their vanity. While it doesn’t hold many lipsticks, it could also hold any number of beauty products, if you’re into multi-functioning decor. Sounds like a win for beauty lovers everywhere.

Get it from Anthropologie for $28.00.

8. PopGrips Lips

Lip balm is a major necessity for everyone- fashion lover or not. For this fashionista friend who also always digging around in their purse for some lip salvation, get them a PopGrip Lips from PopSockets for the back of their phone. If they have their phone on them, then they’ll always have some lip balm ready for when their lips need a rescue. PopSockets offers vanilla, watermelon, strawberry, cherry, cotton candy, and blue raspberry flavors, along with a collaboration featuring Burt’s Bees original Beeswax. Each flavor has their own cute design, and refills are offered for when you inevitably run out.

Get them from PopSockets for $15.00.

9. CLUCI Women’s Convertible Backpack

For the fashion lover who also loves function, get them this convertible backpack from CLUCI. The bag has a large capacity, so you can fit everything that you need for your next class within, and the included strap allows for conversion between three different bag styles. Depending on your mood for the day, it can be a backpack, a shoulder bag, or a top handle bag. On top of that, the bag is water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your laptop getting ruined as you dash to class in the rain.
