Any fashion loverwill be able to appreciate an essential accessory like a handbag. However, before rushing to buy any bag, even if it’s the prettiest on the market, you have to consider a few things. What purpose does the person use the bag for? It’s crucial to analyze whether they always use the same bag and, therefore, need specific requirements for it to be useful, or if they use them purely as aesthetic accessories, changing them every day. In the latter case, design matters more, and it’s important that it doesn’t match the bags they already have. Utility requirements become less relevant.
It’s also important to think about what your fashionista values. Do they desire a well-known but “classic” brand, even if it’s a widely recognized design? Or do they value making a statement each time someone sees their bag, leaving people wondering where it’s from? The answer to what your fashion lover values more will guide you to either purchase the bag from traditional brands like DKNY, Chanel, or Dior, or to look for a local designer or handmade bag shop that offers less common options that will make her stand out.
Eye catching shoes
Whether it’s stilettos, trainers or combat boots, a pair of bold and stylish shoes will make your fashionista swoon.
However, this is the riskiest gift, as there is no standard shoe size or last, so figuring out her size can be an ordeal, and even if you guess the size they are still uncomfortable, which can be very bad for her back. Always remember to ask for a gift voucher so she can exchange them, or check out our last option!
Whether it’s a chunky gold chain, delicate diamond studs, or even a faux flower bracelet, a piece of jewellery can make all the difference to any outfit.
You must take into account their personal style, as they can be picky. Some may not like heavy earrings because they hurt, or they may need something easy to take off for sports. Preferences for gold over silver should also be considered (PLEASE REMEMBER THIS, as many people complain about it on social media when receiving jewelry). Choose something that complements their wardrobe.
A scarf is a versatile accessory that can be worn both dressed up and casual, making it a great gift for any fashionista. Look for a soft material, such as fleece, teddy-style, cashmere, or silk if you want it to be a warm staple.
If you think it’s not enough for a gift, you can complement it with matching gloves or a beanie, which you can choose yourself or buy from one of the packs prepared by the shop. It also becomes very trendy each winter to style your scarf in a way called Balaklava, which you can suggest they try to score some points as a supportive person.
A subscription to a fashion magazine
A subscription to a fashion magazine. If your fashionista has so many clothes that you don’t know what to buy or they like to keep up with fashion in general, gift them a subscription to their favorite fashion magazine.
It’s important to know that although all magazines talk about fashion, each one has a “personal” style. If your fashion lover likes designer fashion and catwalk shows, you can choose Vogue; if they like street style, Glamourmag, etc.
You can also choose if you want the magazine subscription to be in physical format and bring it to her every month or if you want her to download it as an ebook from the apps.
If after all these ideas, you feel that none of them fit that fashion lover in your life, you can always give them a gift card to their favourite clothing store.
It is always a safe bet, and they can choose something that they know they’ll love and wear for years to come.
No matter what gift you choose, what they will value the most is the effort you make to be interested in their tastes and style, so be very attentive and make your interest crystal clear! And now, go find something that speaks to their sense of style. Happy shopping!
