The Ultimate Gift Guide for the Fashion Fiend in your Life*

Unsure of what to get your fashion-loving girlfriend, friend or sister for Christmas? Finding the right present when it comes to clothing and accessories can be really difficult, particularly when there are so many types of style. To help, check out this Christmas gift guide for the fashion-fiend in your life. We’ll help you figure out what their style is and the perfect thing/s to get them!

Classic
Lovers of a classic style like to keep colours and patterns to a minimum and only use accessories sparingly. Think Audrey Hepburn or Emma Watson! As truly chic people, they will always look like they’ve made an effort but not tried too hard.


Try a super chic cashmere jumper, like the one above. It will look perfect with their winter wardrobe. Opt for white to ensure it goes with every outfit. For something cute, a classic handbag will go down well, as will a watch. For extra chic points, try a man’s watch – their timeless quality will be the perfect masculine counterpart to their feminine attire.

Casual
The casual and relaxed fashion girl likes her laid back nature to shine through her clothing. She may have a hundred and one things to do, so she needs something easy to throw on that will still make her look good. Use Alexa Chung as your inspiration and you won’t go far wrong.
Go for a 1960s dress for something comfortable and easy to throw. Brogues are the epitome of a relaxed but smart dress shoe, so these will be ideal for both work and the weekends. If you’re looking for something stocking filler size, you can’t go wrong with some simple but beautiful studs. No muss, no fuss!

Edgy
This rocker chick friend embodies Avril Lavigne. The realm of dark colours is where you want to start, like black or deep red. Think silver jewellery and leather as well – these will likely feature on their clothes or accessories in some way.
Combine all the key features of this style in one piece with a bag like the one above, or opt for something a little quirky but equally cool, like this Tatty Devine dinosaur necklace. Leather jackets are always a safe but practical bet, so if in doubt go leather!

Maverick/Eclectic
Bright and vibrant or a mixture of prints and patterns – this is what you’ll likely see your loved one ogling over in shops. For inspiration, picture Gwen Stefani or Rita Ora. They need style to suit their personality and they’re not afraid to be bold so you can go all out with this.


A tribal coat will be a sure win – cool, different, and definitely in need this winter. Animal print is on trend this season, like this fish print dress which is perfect for your loved one’s ‘out there’ style. If you’re pulling out all the stops go for something high end, such as designer plus size clothing or handbags. They’ll be completely spoilt!

Glamorous
If you think Blake Lively and your friend were born to be mates then she is indeed glamorous. Beautiful jewelled dresses, stunning accessories and primed to perfection – the glamorous girl loves a party and always ensures she looks perfect.
Metallics are really popular this time of year so you’ll have plenty to choose from; go for silver or gold. Sparkly or jewelled clutches are a great party season gift. Costume jewellery, like the necklaces above will go with many outfits. Every retailer has party dresses so you’ll definitely be able to find something in your budget.
