Fashion Gifts You Won’t Want To Give Away

Fashion Gifts You Won’t Want To Give Away

In an ideal world, I’d be buying two of everything on this Christmas shopping list; one for the appropriate friend or family member and the other for me! If you’re looking for fashion gifts that won’t cost the earth, read on.

I love the quirkiness of this insect necklace, and the gorgeous use of colour, which makes it feel really distinct. It’s perfect for anyone with a strong fashion personality.

Insect gem necklace, €110 at uterque.com

This embroidered sweater is exactly the kind of piece I love to wear over Christmas. It’s an easy throw-on but has?the kind of beautiful detailing that elevates it and makes it ideal for any occasion.

Embroidered sweatshirt, €80 at Topshop

I love this dress, and so will my sister. If she didn’t live in Australia we could share it. But at €39.99, buying two is not a huge deal. I’d wear it over tailored trousers and heels. She’d look amazing in it bare legged. This is a really sophisticated party dress.

Satin dress with flounce hem, €39.99 at H&M

Good quality leather gloves are something I always neglect to buy for myself. I would love to find this gorgeous textured pair in my stocking this year.

Faux-fur leather gloves, €55 at & Other Stories

The clasp detail of this simple leather bag is what draws me to it and is a perfect example of what Cos does really well. Subtle design details are what elevate Cos clothes and accessories above many of their competitors. This piece will never go out out style. It’s the perfect gift for someone with a strong design aesthetic.

 

Metal clamp shoulder bag, €115 at Cos

These Gucci-esque mules are a fantastic price at just €39.99. The velvet fabric adds a really luxurious touch and the double bow detail adds extra?glamour. The muted shade of navy ensures they don’t look in any way over the top.

These chic drop earrings are an ideal stocking filler. They’ll add a hint of colour to an outfit and a touch of extra glamour.

Cleopatra pendant earrings, €19 at & Other Stories

I adore the flourish of colour and texture on this hat. I?love wearing knitted hats and it’s really nice to find one that makes a bit more of a statement.
