We all have that one friend (or several, TBH) who always shows up to every event dressed to the damn nines. They’re the kind of friend who always knows what’s trending—and how to wear even the wildest pieces without looking like a complete lunatic. This holiday season, your most stylish friend deserve the cutest fashion-lover gifts that the retail world has to offer. Whether you know their style like the back of your hand, or want to surprise your fashionista friends with something they might never expect, I’ve got your back with these fashion-forward gift ideas.
While style is a very personal thing, even majorly unique fashionistas occasionally succumb to current trends. Chic decor, pearl jewelry, tinted sunnies—they’re all “in” right now, and odds are, your most stylish friends are (at least somewhat) into them. If you’ve been seeing your friends wear certain trends, adding to their collection with a gift in the same vein is always a smart move.
